Rumors have swirled over whether Biden will make it to the election. Now they’ve been put to bed.
And Gavin Newsom exposed who’s taking over for Biden in 2024.
Joe Biden’s mental faculties have been failing for years.
Just take a look at some of his worst:

But many on the Left will have you believe that there is absolutely nothing wrong with him.

Of course, it could just be because any criticism against Biden’s mental faculties could easily be used against them as well.
But younger Democrats have made waves for questioning the party line.
One of those men was California Governor Gavin Newsom. Some even thought he would run himself.
But now he’s changed his tune.
Gavin Newsom thinks it’s time to “move on” from rumors about a presidential candidacy in 2024.
“Filing deadlines haven’t passed. [If] President Biden doesn’t run, why shouldn’t we consider you a likely candidate?” Chuck Todd asked Newsom in an interview set to air Sunday morning on Meet the Press on NBC.
“Well, I think the vice president is naturally the one lined up, and the filing deadlines are quickly coming to pass and I think we need to move past this notion that he’s not going to run,” Newsom said.
“President Biden is going to run, and we’re looking forward to getting him reelected.”
Pressed on how he responds to private calls about 2024, Newsom said, “Time to move on. Let’s go.”
Newsom, who has long been regarded a possible presidential candidate, has stated repeatedly that he will not run for president in 2024, even if Biden, 80, decides not to seek for re-election.
During the interview, the California governor also stated that if Biden does not run, Vice President Harris would be the next candidate for the party to unify around.
“It’s the Biden-Harris administration. Maybe I’m a little old-fashioned … about presidents and vice presidents,” Newsom said.
In recent interviews, Harris has stated that she is prepared to be president “if necessary,” despite concerns about the president’s age, but she and other Biden supporters have dismissed those concerns as they campaign for a second term.
“Yes, I am, if necessary. But Joe Biden is going to be fine,” Harris told CBS News in an interview for Face the Nation also set to air Sunday.
