Two prominent liberal political analysts at CNN are freaking out after the Democratic debates this week.
During a segment on Thursday night, CNN’s Van Jones and Nia-Malika Henderson had a lengthy back-and-forth about how they are worried about how badly all of the Democratic presidential candidates performed at the debates on Wednesday and Thursday night.
Jones kicked things off by saying the second Democratic debate on Thursday was “really bad” for Democrats, and especially for the frontrunner, former Vice President Joe Biden.
“We’re now sitting here with the Democratic frontrunner having a spokesperson trying to defend his comments on busing in 2019,” Jones said in a dispirited tone.
“This is not good,” he said.
“Last night I was happy happy happy because I said I am so proud to be a Democrat, everybody is doing so great,” he explained. “If you had told me three hours ago that we would be sitting here trying to figure out how the Congressional Black Caucus can keep supporting Joe Biden, I would have said, ‘on what planet is that,’ but that’s the planet that we’re on.”
“Listen, these debates matter. These debates matter,” Jones continued.
“I’m..” Jones stammered, “I’m, I’m hurt!
“Maybe he already thinks he’s woke, he’s already there, he doesn’t have to keep learning and growing, we all have to keep learning and growing, on women’s issues, on racial issues, on immigration issues, that’s the whole point of the country, we try to become a more perfect union together,” he continued.
“And we need Joe to lead us there, not be drug there. This is a bad night for Joe Biden, this is a bad night for Democrats,” he concluded.
Henderson jumped in and said that Biden is acting like a “white guy with a black friend.”
She argued that because Biden served under President Obama, the first African-American president, he thinks that is “proof” that he supports issues that are important to black voters.
But as she explained, Biden had several gaffes on Thursday night when discussing race issues and refused to apologize for saying last week that he worked with two pro-segregationists decades ago.
Needless to say, CNN is in freak-out mode over the growing notion that none of the 25 Democratic candidates can beat Trump.
Several other liberals and several election forecasters are already admitting that Trump is the clear favorite to win in the upcoming election.
Last week, liberal comedian Bill Maher said Oprah Winfrey — not any of the 25 Democratic presidential candidates — is the only one who can defeat Trump in the 2020 election.
Election forecaster and economic analyst Stephen Moore predicted a “40-state landslide” in the 2020 election for Trump if he can accomplish a major trade deal with China.
Last month, Steven Rattner published a report citing three different modelers that are predicting the president will win the election.
