‘It’s BS’: Ex-CNN Analyst Unloads On Dems For Trying To Silence Criticism Of Biden To Save ‘Democracy’

 

Former CNN political analyst Chris Cillizza on Tuesday criticized Democrats who have attempted to muzzle concerns about President Joe Biden after his Thursday debate with former President Donald Trump.

 

‘It’s BS’: Ex-CNN Analyst Unloads On Dems For Trying To Silence Criticism Of Biden To Save ‘Democracy’

Biden spoke with a raspy voice and trailed off during the debate, prompting Americans to voice concerns about his age and viability, but some have expressed opposition to focusing on the president’s competence rather than Trump’s alleged autocratic tendencies. Cillizza, on his YouTube channel, rebuked Democrats for efforts to suppress worries about Biden in order to help him beat Trump and preserve “democracy.”

“The reaction to Joe Biden’s debate performance among Democrats is stunning to me. There’s this one line of argument that I really want to call out because, I’m not going to swear, but it’s BS,” Cillizza said. “Okay. Here’s a response to a tweet I sent out. This is from someone named Thundercat: … ‘I hope the press remembers these stories and tweets when Trump wins and you’re all looking through the bars of a jail cell as he tramples freedom of the press. The courts have shown they’re willing to follow his lead. That’s going to be a wow story for sure. Best of luck.’”

“First of all, do I think Donald Trump has dictatorial tendencies? I do. Do I think he prefers authoritarianism to democracy? I do. Do I think he can, in the space of four years, destroy democracy and turn our country into a dictatorship? I do not,” Cillizza said. “If you look at other countries where authoritarianism is on the march, Turkey for example, it’s a long process … That doesn’t mean he won’t hurt the free press, do all those sorts of things.

But the idea that if Donald Trump wins, democracy ends and everyone’s in jail seems to me to be overblown.” Cillizza suggested that nominating Biden, given his present capacity based on the debate is “a massive risk to democracy.”

“Writing about that and the possibility that maybe he needs to step down or needs to be replaced, I would argue, is really important,” he added. “Because if you go forward knowing what we know about Joe Biden, you are taking a massive, massive risk if you’re a Democrat.

Because you are saying to people, ‘Yeah, we know you think he’s too old. Yeah, he kind of showed he might just be too old, but it doesn’t matter because Donald Trump is the other nominee.’”
