Piers Morgan Urges Democrats to Quickly Grasp the Reality of Biden’s 2024 Prospects

Recently on The Five, Piers Morgan issued a strong caution regarding the Democratic Party’s outlook for the upcoming presidential election. He emphasized the need for Democrats to recognize the potential of facing defeat by former President Donald Trump in the 2024 election.

“Let’s be clear, I think Democrats are sleep-walking into a ludicrous situation. They all know, two-thirds of Democrats think he is too old, two-thirds of his own party, think he is too old to run again. He is insisting on doing it, obviously nobody wants to give up the most powerful office in the world, I get that, but Joe Biden to me is a dead man walking,” Morgan said on Friday.

Morgan underscored the importance of former President Donald Trump’s recent success in the Iowa caucuses, emphasizing that it should be a clear signal for Biden’s prospects in the November elections.

“And if the Democrats do not wake up fast to the reality of their candidate, the incumbent, barely alive president, against a resurgent Donald Trump, who has just had the biggest win of the Iowa Caucus in Republican history – and who by the way, 2016 when he became president, didn’t even win in Iowa,” Morgan continued. “If that doesn’t ring massive alarm bells, then I don’t know what does.”

During the Iowa caucuses, Trump garnered an impressive 51.01% of the vote, surpassing Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida and former Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley. Morgan highlighted the obstacles that Biden encounters in his bid for re-election.

“Biden ran as the anti-Trump candidate. Well, he can’t do that again now, he has to run on his own record, and as Martha said, 33%, I don’t think any incumbent president in history has won with that approval rating at this stage. Will they get a new candidate in? Maybe it’s too late. They have done it twice before when they have had incumbent Democratic presidents since World War II, who have stepped aside. I think they should do that.”

Morgan pondered historical instances of incumbent Democratic presidents opting not to seek re-election, citing President Harry S. Truman during the Korean War in 1952 and President Lyndon Baines Johnson in 1968 during the Vietnam War. He expressed astonishment at Trump’s resilience and potential for success.

“Otherwise, I got to say, I do not think I would be saying this a year ago, I really didn’t, I thought Trump was done, and then when you think 91 criminal charges, he has to be done, but it’s like King Kong on top of the buildings here,” Morgan said.

“I look at Trump, and I’ve known him a long time, my god that guy has got resilience and he has got a gate, a wind behind his gate, which says to me he thinks he’s going to win, and I think honestly, I suspect he will be here in November, and if Joe Biden is up against him, Trump wins,” Morgan added.
