Cenk Uygur, founder of the “Young Turks” network, posted on social media, “Yes, I’m running against Joe Biden for the Democratic nomination.”
“Joe Biden is down 24 points on the economy,” he continued.
“He has no ability to make up that kind of ground on the most important issue. We need a new candidate now!” he added. (Trending: Why Is Biden Giving Amnesty to 700,000 Migrants?)
“I’m going to do whatever I can to help him decide that this is not the right path,” Uygur said about Biden.
“If he retires now, he’s a hero: He beat Trump, he did a good job of being a steward of the economy. If he doesn’t, he loses to Trump, and he’s the villain of the story.”
“The last time he ran for office was in 2020 when he couldn’t even earn 7 percent of the vote in California’s 25th congressional district. He said that the campaign did teach him one thing, that “the mainstream media, generally speaking, are grotesque liars.”
“I don’t believe in traditional campaigning,” Uygur said.
“I will do almost all my campaigning in the media. I love diners. I love meeting actual voters. But that’s mythology, and you’re not going to diner your way into beating an incumbent president.”
To become a U.S. president you must be a natural born citizen but Ugyer was born in Istanbul, Turkey.
“I have lawyered up. I have the same lawyer [Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT)] used in both of his presidential runs. And my guess is I’m going to have some strong allies in this. Arnold Schwarzenegger,” he said. (Trending: Joe Biden’s 2024 Chances Are Officially Dead)
“I’m going to the Supreme Court. Either I’m going to win or I’m going to lose. Now this case is on our side. The precedent is definitely on our side. So, what are you going to do, brother?”
Ugyer talked about Marianne Williamson who is also running for the Democratic nomination and he said, “Unfortunately, she hasn’t broken through.”
“I have nothing but respect for her courage and her policies, but at this point, we’re not at progressives versus establishment. We’re at four months left, and things must change. Otherwise, we’re almost definitely going to lose to Trump,” he added.
