Tucker Carlson voiced his concerns about the upcoming 2024 election, warning it won’t be between Joe Biden and Donald Trump.
During a speech at the Intercollegiate Studies Institute event in Wilmington, Delaware, Tucker noted how the establishment is currently backed into a corner, and that anything could happen.
“They’ve done everything they can by legal means — which are in fact extra-legal means if we’re being totally honest, completely Third World stuff — to take the opponent out of the race, and they’re still losing,” he said.
“This is not going to be a race between Joe Biden and Donald Trump,” Carlson said.
Tucker on 2024: "This is not going to be a race between Joe Biden and Donald Trump. This will be forced. These issues will be forced. Soon. It's about to get very serious. Everything is at stake. What wouldn't they do? What haven't they done? How will you prepare yourself?" pic.twitter.com/4zL7AKSoIh— TheBlaze (@theblaze) September 29, 2023
Tucker also threw a sidenote, “By the way, if it’s [California Gov.] Gavin Newsom, we all should be very, very concerned. That guy’s scary, and I mean it.”
“These issues will be forced soon, the road from here to November of 2024 is going to be filled with developments nobody in this room could foresee, I can promise you that,” Tucker said in warning about the election.
“So it’s about to get very serious. Everything is at stake,” he added.
Earlier this year, Radio talk show host and Reagan administration alum Hugh Hewitt predicted that Biden would bow out by the primary election season, drawing a parallel to 1968, when then-President Lyndon Johnson announced he would not seek reelection after barely winning the first Democratic primary contest.
In New Hampshire, “he managed to beat [Sen.] Eugene McCarthy from Minnesota, but he was not able to beat him convincingly, and LBJ dropped out,” Hewitt noted.
Johnson won the Democratic primary by six percentage points, 48-42 in the Granite State, a bad showing for the incumbent president.
Democratic Sen. Robert F. Kennedy jumped in the race four days later.
History now seems to be repeating itself, with Kennedy’s son, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., also running against incumbent president Joe Biden.
Johnson announced on March 31, 1968:
“I shall not seek, and I will not accept, the nomination of my party for another term as your president.”
Hewitt predicts Biden will make a similar move to Johnson.
“I think you’ll see an exit in the course of the primaries,” he said.
George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley said the ultimate “break the glass option” would be that “Joe Biden could pardon his son and then announce that he will not run for reelection.”
“Facing an impeachment inquiry, low public support, and a son in the legal dock, Biden could use the case to close out his political career,” he argued.
The former Fox News host argued there many variables could play out.
However, Tucker noted the possibility of a Trump-Biden rematch is looking less likely in the 2024 election, warning there could a totally different scenario.
Republican Senator Ted Cruz predicted Michelle Obama could be deployed to take Joe Biden’s place.
While the “2024 Michelle Obama scenario” is plausible, what the Democrats have up their sleeve remains to be seen.
As the saying goes, “A cornered rat is the most dangerous.”
