(TNS) Is Joe Biden going to make it across the 2020 Democratic presidential finish line? Increasingly, some politicos think not.
Count Fox News’ Tucker Carlson among them. In fact, he was quite adamant that Biden â€œwill not be the Democratic nomineeâ€ who takes on Donald Trump in November.

In an appearance Friday on Charlie LeDuffâ€™sÂ podcast â€œNo BS News Hour,â€ Carlson said he is of the opinion that Democrats will find a way to remove the â€œin declineâ€ Biden and replace him with someone who has a better chance of beating the president.
During a discussion of the impending â€œreorder of our politicsâ€ due to the coronavirus pandemic, Carlson said, â€œI am utterly convinced, and would bet money, that Joe Biden will not be the Democratic nominee on election day. I just donâ€™t believe that. I really donâ€™t.â€
â€œWhat did you say?â€ asked a clearly stunned LeDuff.
â€œI sincerely and totally believe that Joe Biden will not be the Democratic nominee on election day,â€ Carlson continued. â€œI donâ€™t believe that.â€
â€œHow does that math work?â€ another co-host asked.
â€œWell, the math doesnâ€™t work, but itâ€™s not about math, itâ€™s about will,â€ Carlson explained. â€œSo the Democratic Party is intent on taking power, period, period, and they mean it, and theyâ€™re willing to do kind of whatever they think works. I mean thatâ€™s demonstrable.â€
The top-rated Fox News host went on to say that Biden â€œis not preparedâ€ and â€œcanâ€™t beatâ€ President Trump or â€œlead the country,â€ citing his mental decline.
â€œHe shouldnâ€™t be working still,â€ he added. â€œIâ€™m not being mean. I know him. Iâ€™ve always liked him. But thatâ€™s true.
“And so, those are two trains traveling toward each other at high speed. Two competing imperatives. Weâ€™ve got to win, but weâ€™ve got a guy who canâ€™t win. Therefore, theyâ€™re gonna replace him,” Carlson said.
â€œThis is not the guy Iâ€™ve known, and you can ask anybody who knows him or has watched him,â€ Carlson added. â€œThis is not him. Heâ€™s a completely different person, and heâ€™s in decline and I feel bad about it. Thatâ€™ll be me someday â€¦ I hope somebody loves me enough to not let me run for president,” he said.
So…who, then, of not Biden?
â€œIf I had to bet I would think Andrew Cuomo would be the most likely to replace Biden,â€ Carlson said, noting that former Vice President Hubert Humphrey won the Democratic nomination in 1968 despite not having won any of the state primary elections.
Ed Kilgore at New York Magazine isn’t buying in, though.
Time will tell. WhatÂ is true is that Joe Biden shouldn’t be running for president because he doesn’t have the mental capacity to be president.
Democrats have been claiming that President Trump is ‘crazy’ and should be removed under the 25th Amendment, but Joe Biden is much more likely to become the first president removed under that provision if he wins.
