The Biden administration has managed to draw some of the most unfavorable headlines that the media once assumed they could apply to former President Trump.
For Joe Biden, that involves an investigation into son Hunter Biden — which has quickly escalated and put the president, and his Democratic cohort, between a rock and a hardwood floor covered in parmesan cheese.
On Thursday’s episode of The Clay Travis and Buck Sexton Show, the two hosts assessed whether Joe Biden will ultimately pardon Hunter Biden — amid a federal investigation looking into his overseas business dealings — and what that decision may indicate for Biden’s re-election odds.
“He can’t pardon his son and get re-elected,” Clay said, also noting that Joe may ultimately choose to do so, knowing he will likely bow out of a 2024 run.
Buck agreed on the potential scapegoat that Biden and the Dems may cite to escape the crumbling odds for re-election indicated by Biden’s polling.
“It does feel like if they were trying to create a circumstance within the Democrat apparatus that Biden would have to do exactly what you said,” Sexton commented. “Allowing his son to finally be in criminal jeopardy and forcing him to make the pardon that the second he makes it, he’s no longer politically viable …
“It’s almost as if this is the mechanism they’ve been holding back the whole time. And therefore, they force Biden’s hand to step down by allowing his son to be prosecuted.”
Clay adds that Biden, at this point, may lean on any excuse not to run in 2024.
“Biden, if he decides not to run, will actually cite some form of health. I don’t think he’s gonna be able to point to anything else.”

Bidet ain’t making it to 2024.
Correct. He just hopes to make it to the next day.
Bidden is just a place holder for 2024. He doesn’t care what his ratings are nor does he care about any of the scandals surrounding him. His job is to be so bad that the next Dem will look like the savior and it will probably work.
The nail in the coffin for a Biden reelection will literally be a nail in the coffin.
That senile old dude is going to die I’m afraid and probably while doing something important for national security.
Please no. That would make him some sort of pathetic martyr.
