According to the Associated Press, former Vice President and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has narrowed his potential vice president pick to 6 people.
The top three names on the list include Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren, Senator Kamala Harris and former Obama national security adviser Susan Rice.
The other three names that were on the list of potential picks were Rep. Val Demings, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, and New Mexico Democrat Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham.
“Biden’s vetting committee had conversations with a larger group of women earlier this spring; those continuing on in the process have been asked to turn over financial records, past writings and other documentation,” the Associated Press said. “Biden has had various public and private interactions with many of the women his vetting committee has considered thus far, but has not yet had any formal one-on-one interviews expressly to discuss the No. 2 spot on the ticket. Those aren’t expected for several weeks.”
Check out what the Daily Wire reported:
Failed Georgia Democrat gubernatorial candidate and far-left activist Stacey Abrams told Stephen Colbert on “The Late Show” on Wednesday that she has not been contacted by Biden’s campaign about being considered for vice president, despite her aggressive campaigning to be selected.
Rice would be a controversial pick for Biden given her extensive history of not being truthful about political scandals, including the Sept. 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, and the unmasking of then-national security adviser Michael Flynn.
Warren also has a well documented history of dishonesty which analysts have said doomed her presidential campaign, including her “debunked allegation that she’d been fired from a school job for being pregnant, and her false claims that her kids had never attended private schools,” National Review reported.
Biden clearly thinks he has a chance at beating President Trump in 2020 considering during a recent interview he said that he dreams of removing President Trump from office with the use of the military.
On Wednesday during a virtual interview with Comedy Central host Trevor Noah of the “Daily Show,” Biden shared his fantasy.
The comment from the former Vice President came when Noah asked Biden if he ever thinks about what would happen if President Trump loses in 2020 and refuses to leave office.
“Let me ask you this, and I know this is a strange question to ask an American politician, may be easier around the world, but have you ever considered what would happen if the election result came out as you being the winner and Trump refused to leave?” Noah asked.
Biden replied, “Yes, I have.”
Biden continued after a break and stated, “I was so damn proud. You have four chiefs of staff coming out and ripping the skin off of Trump. And you have so many rank and file military personnel saying, whoa, we’re not a military state. This is not who we are. I promise you, I am absolutely convinced they will escort him from the White House with great dispatch.”
