‘Panic here is real’: Dem donors reportedly asking about late entrants to defeat Trump

If you’re not convinced that the Democrat Party desperately wants to ensure that President Donald Trump doesn’t secure a second term in the White House, you have not been paying attention to their sham impeachment efforts.

They are so desperate, according to New York Times Frank Bruni, that donors in the party are beginning to panic over their current options to take on the president.

“So they’re looking at their candidates — at their front-runners, in particular — with a very withering microscope,” Bruni said Tuesday on CNN’s New Day. “Because the question is who is super-potent enough, rock-solid enough to guarantee us that we’ll get rid of Donald Trump.”


The columnist offered his take on the current front runners, former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.

“And you have a situation here. It’s not just the donors who are concerned, you have two front-runners who are both extremely flawed and extremely vulnerable,” he said. “Joe Biden has seemed very rickety on that debate stage. He’s not raising money the way he should. He’s spending too much money. He doesn’t have cash reserves.”

“And, Elizabeth Warren is to the left of a lot of Democratic voters and a lot of general election voters,” Bruni continued. “So I think the panic here is real. What’s sort of silly is the notion that there’s someone out there in the forest who’s going to solve all the problems.”

Someone like Michelle Obama? Or Oprah Winfrey?

New York Times political correspondent Jonathan Martin also wrote about panic in the party, saying Democrats are “wondering about late entrants to the race.”

Martin said when a half-dozen Democratic donors gathered for dinner last week in Manhattan that “the meeting quickly evolved into a discussion of who was not in the race — but could be lured in.”

He tweeted updates on some options, while noting in a separate tweet concerns “are fairly routine for Dems. Some of the Clinton ‘92 crowd can still cite similar stories (to the month!) from their race.”

“Bernie’s Army” wasn’t too pleased to hear this, as seen in the response from one of Sen. Bernie Sander’s supporters — recent polling suggests the Independent senator from Vermont is fading.

Byron York, chief political correspondent for the Washington Examiner and a Fox News contributor, tossed out the name “Michelle” as a possible option for panicked Democrats.

One thing is certain, this story explains why the Democrats are pushing all-in on the impeachment scam.

Here’s a sampling of other responses to the story from Twitter:
