“I Was An Activist”: Stacey Abrams’ Desperate Attempt To Be Biden’s VP Continues
Failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams is continuing her desperate push to become the Democratic party nominee by saying that she was an activist. Abrams made the claim on the PBS program “News Hour.”
The show’s host asked Abrams why she is the most qualified among all of the other possible choices for vice president while pointing out that she has never run a state and has never been in congress or senate. In fact, her only claim to fame was that she ran for governor of Georgia, but she lost miserably and refused to concede.
“I have legislative experience. I have deep legislative experience and success on a number of these issues, criminal justice reform, environmental issues, reproductive health, healthcare, economics. Also, I am a small business owner that understands the economy that we have to reform and recover. I am someone who’s worked in foreign policy. I understand the moment that we’re in because I was once an activist who pushed for change,” Abrams answered in an attempt at self-promotion.
Abrams’ hopes went up again after Sen. Amy Klobuchar officially withdrew her name from those being considered to become Biden’s vice president. Klobuchar has long been considered by many to be the top contender to be Biden’s choice. She would make the most sense since she is not as divisive as the other top choices like Elizabeth Warren or Kamala Harris. With Klobuchar out and a push to have the first woman of color to become an official candidate for the vice presidency, Abrams seems to have a real shot at the second-highest office in the United States.
The choice of who will be Biden’s VP is very crucial now. There are serious signs that he is in cognitive decline. The constant gaffes and the forgetfulness that he is displaying when he is in public is not very alarming. Whoever becomes his vice president should really be ready to step in and become president should Biden become unable to perform his duties.
