Jesse Watters used part of a monologue to open his Fox News program on Tuesday to make a prediction about who Democrats will blame if they lose their congressional majority during the November midterms, and it’s a familiar foe, so to speak.
That would be Russia.
Watters first discussed a recent survey that found 44 percent of Democrats want another person to run in 2024 besides Biden.
“The Democrats – I know, because I know Democrats – they want power. That’s the most important thing. So this poll acknowledges it,” Watters said.
Watters referenced an NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist National survey, adding, “They [Democrats] don’t think that Joe Biden can win re-election.”
“They think his presidency is so far costing them power in the House. Democrats obviously want their agenda enacted and so far Joe Biden has not really been effective in enacting their agenda,” Watters continued.
“Some people own up to it, recognize their error, and improve. Others make excuses. Show up to work late, there is traffic. Miss a pop fly, the sun was in my eyes. Forget to do your homework? Of course, the dog ate it. If you have been around long enough you probably have a pretty good b.s. detector and tell when someone is making excuses,” Watters continued.
“So, when Democrats came out with their latest reason for why they are going to get she lacked in the midterms. It raised some red flags. Apparently, U.S. intelligence officials told the a.p. that Russia may start a new campaign to meddle in our election but they also admit that there is no evidence,” he added.
“This is actually going to happen. So, if there is no proof, then why is this story coming out now?” he rhetorically asked.
“Well, pretty soon Democrats are going to lose as they have never lost before. And they need an excuse. Otherwise, they would have to admit that their policies are failing and voters hate them. This should sound familiar. Hillary Clinton got the Trump-Russia investigation started back in 2016. And she is already saying if Trump runs and wins in 2024, well, it’s because he cheated,” he said mockingly.
