Rich Welsh|OPINION| SPECULATION| On Sunday, former political adviser to President Bill Clinton, Dick Morris, said he believes 2020 hopeful Mike Bloomberg and Hillary Clinton are scheming a plan that would allow Clinton to become the 2020 Democratic nominee. Here we go again.
During an appearance on “The Cat’s Roundtable” with radio host John Catsimatidis, Morris said he believes Bloomberg will continue to campaign and spend loads of cash to siphon support from Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) which will trigger a brokered convention.
“Here’s the deal that I think is going down. I think Hillary and Bloomberg have gotten together and cooked up a scheme,” Morris said.
Morris explained how he thinks it will go:
“Nobody will be nominated on the first ballot, and it’ll go to a second ballot. Now, the problem is that the party establishment doesn’t have a candidate. They can’t do Bloomberg because he got killed in the debate. … Can’t do [Joe] Biden because he’s already lost the frontrunner status. … [Pete] Buttigieg looks like a high school kid at the Model UN, and he’s not gonna be able to have it, certainly not against [President Donald] Trump. [Elizabeth] Warren is third, but she’s pretty far to the left, and people are not gonna want to— they’re not going to want to trust her.
And when you put it together, it will go to a second ballot, and then I think Hillary Clinton enters the race. And the superdelegates will all leave who they are for and go to Hillary.”
That sounds as crazy as Democrats believing they could impeach Trump and then Mike Pence, and then Pelosi would give up the Speakership to go to Hillary Clinton. The Constitution doesn’t mandate you have to be a member of the House to be the Speaker. If Clinton were Speaker when Trump and Pence were impeached and removed, Hillary would be third in line. Unfortunately for Democrats, they don’t understand the Constitution or our system of Constitutional law, and things just don’t work that way.
Even so, Morris’ described scheme, which he calls the “establishment scenario,” means he believes moderate Democrats will do everything in their power to prevent Sanders from winning the Democratic nomination.
The other option is the Democrats will have Sanders indicted for something. For what, we don’t really know, because the Democrats haven’t yet thought it up.
“Hillary is the only candidate that they’ll be able to come up with that can measure up to Donald Trump,” Morris said.
It would be delicious fun to watch Hillary be destroyed yet again by Trump. She was and still would be the worst candidate ever nominated by a major party, so bring it on.
Morris went on to say that if Sanders does win the Democratic nomination, then President Donald Trump will not only “massacre” him in the general election, but the Democratic Party as a whole, predicting Democrats would lose upwards of 60 seats in the House.
Let’s all donate to Bernie’s campaign to make that happen. #KAG2020!
