Former top Trump presidential adviser Kellyanne Conway broached a subject that President Joe Biden’s ardent defenders refuse to discuss in any serious capacity during a Fox News segment on Monday.
Conway told host Jesse Watters that it is increasingly obvious to most Americans that Biden is in serious “decline” in terms of his mental capacity, and that will likely play a role in the outcome of the 2024 election.
After the host noted that the president doesn’t have much of a campaign strategy, Conway said it essentially consists of the one used in 2020: “He’s not Trump, and that’s enough.”
“Funny thing though,” she continued, “the voters will have their say. Not the donors, not the anchors, not the media. The voters know what they see, and what they see is a president they didn’t realize was in such decline.”
She went on to mention an ABC News poll that was released last week, which found six-in-10 Democrats and seven-in-10 Independents do not believe Biden has the mental and physical wherewithal for another term. She also suggested that Biden’s condition will only worsen as he ages and that he won’t be able to change the minds of voters who already have doubts about his abilities.
Conway also said that voters did not know much about Biden, his son Hunter Biden, and Vice President Kamala Harris because most of the mainstream media supported them and refused to scrutinize them as they have consistently done with former President Donald Trump.
In 2024, however, voters will return to the polls already knowing Trump and having learned a great deal about the Bidens and Harris.
On Tuesday, CNN reported that Hunter Biden would be pleading guilty to three federal charges, predicting that will also have an effect on the ’24 race.
“The plea deal will have immediate reverberations in the 2024 presidential election. Hunter Biden will plead guilty to two federal tax misdemeanors and one charge tied to gun possession, according to the filing in a federal court in Delaware. He will appear in court to plead guilty to the charges at a future date,” CNN reported.
Also, Hunter and Joe Biden have been implicated in a multimillion-dollar bribery scheme allegedly involving an executive with Ukrainian energy company Burisma, which used to pay Hunter tens of thousands of dollars per month to sit on its board of directors.
Earlier this month, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) shared a video to Twitter after reviewing an FBI document in a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) at the Capitol, telling reporters that the document was “very credible” and the allegations against Biden “are nothing short of deeply troubling.”
Greene alleged that payments were made to the Biden family by Burisma, the Ukrainian oil company of which Hunter Biden was given a seat on the board.
“Back in 2015/2016, Burisma was looking to buy a US-based oil and gas company, and this came from being advised by Hunter Biden and his partners. Biden said [Viktor] Shokin was corrupt. This was around the time of this meeting, [which] was when Joe Biden, as vice president, said that prosecutor Shokin was corrupt,” Greene said.
“They hired Hunter on the board to make the problems go away. That’s what they specifically said. Hunter advised that they could raise more money if they bought a US company. And that’s why they were being investigated by this prosecutor Shokin. The informant was advising them, don’t go this route, why would you buy another US company while you’re under investigation? That’s not a good idea,” said Greene.
Harris, meanwhile, has made zero progress on improving U.S. border security after being tasked with the job by Biden in March 2021. Plus, her approval ratings have consistently been worse than Biden’s, and his haven’t been exemplary.
