With Biden on the run, Gutfeld floats ‘perfect woke’ candidate: Now that he’s out of jail, he checks all the Dem boxes

Considering how unfavorably President Joe Biden is regarded – even by his own party – Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld offered the progressive Left a potentially inspiring option for their presidential ticket in 2024.

The Democratic presidential nominee? Would-be assassin John Hinckley.

During his monologue on Wednesday’s “Gutfeld,” the host mused, “But the Dems need help, right? Maybe they’re not looking hard enough, but, you know, I think I can help. I think I have their candidate. This guy, John Hinckley.”

“Yeah, he’s out of jail now, and here’s what he just tweeted, ‘I believe in peace, love, equity, LGBTQ rights, abortion rights, animal rights, race mixing, assault weapon ban, sharing the wealth, Green New Deal, Black Lives Matter, prison reform and good rock ‘n’ roll. Join the John Hinckley community.'”

In response to Hinckley’s parroting of hackneyed leftist platitudes, Gutfeld remarked, “Yeah, it’s located at the corner of —- Crazy Boulevard and A-hole Avenue. But damn, he’s nuttier now than when he shot Reagan. Meaning? He sounds like the perfect woke Democrat. Are you sure that isn’t AOC in a fat man’s suit?” he wondered.

“He ticked every box, although, oddly, he did forget handguns. Hmm. But I guess they must have had CNN on the prison TV because he sounds no different than Don Lemon.”

Gutfeld continued, “And that is CNN’s ratings strategy, show it where you can’t change the channel. Talk about cruel and unusual punishment. That’s like telling a guy on death row to share his last meal with Brian Stelter.”

Hinkley was paroled in 2016 after serving 41 years for the attempted assassination of then-President Ronald Reagan in 1981. He was found not guilty by reason of insanity in his trial by jury and was said to have a pathological obsession with the film “Taxi Driver” and its lead actress, Jodie Foster.

In 2022, a judge ruled Hinckley no longer had to abide by any court-ordered restrictions on his daily life; a man for all seasons in the eyes of the progressive Left.

“But this loser illustrates a key point these days. You want the press and the libs to like you just tow the woke line and anyone can do it. Even a failed assassin with an acoustic guitar and a face like a lumpy potato,” Gutfeld quipped.

“Hinckley’s living his best life. But I don’t want to be around when he hears the news that Jodie Foster is gay. So there you go, Democrats. You wanted a big name. You got one, a celeb who appeals to all your little identity cults, and he can sing.”

Gutfeld asked in conclusion, “So what do you say, Democrats? Hinckley 2024. He can’t be that much worse than what you got. His campaign slogan could be, ‘give me a shot. I just might blow you away.'”
