Democrat Acknowledges Biden Is Circling The Drain: ‘Trump Is Going To Win. And I’m OK With That.’

 Rep. Jared Golden (D-ME) wrote in an op-ed on Tuesday that he believes President Joe Biden is going to lose this fall and that he’s okay with former President Donald Trump coming back into power.

Golden’s remarks come after Rep. Lloyd Doggett (D-TX) became the first Democrat officeholder to publicly call on Biden to step down as the party’s presidential nominee following his disastrous debate performance last week.

“Biden’s poor performance in the debate was not a surprise,” Golden wrote in the Bangor Daily News. “It also didn’t rattle me as it has others, because the outcome of this election has been clear to me for months: While I don’t plan to vote for him, Donald Trump is going to win. And I’m OK with that.”

“Democrats’ post-debate hand-wringing is based on the idea that a Trump victory is not just a political loss, but a unique threat to our democracy,” he continued. “I reject the premise. Unlike Biden and many others, I refuse to participate in a campaign to scare voters with the idea that Trump will end our democratic system.”

He said that Democrats’ “pearl-clutching about a Trump victory” ignores the strength of the America’s political system, which has withstood the test of time.

“This election is about the economy, not democracy. And when it comes to our economy, our Congress matters far more than who occupies the White House,” he wrote. “In 2025, I believe Trump is going to be in the White House. Maine’s representatives will need to work with him when it benefits Mainers, hold him accountable when it does not and work independently across the aisle no matter what.”

He said that everyone should “ignore the chattering class’s scare tactics and political pipedreams” and that people didn’t need to look at the Democrat’s party bosses for answers.

Golden’s remarks come as pressure continues to mount within the party to do something about Biden’s increasingly apparent cognitive decline with only a few months left before the election.


The New York Times reported that those closest to Biden have noticed that he “increasingly appeared confused or listless, or would lose the thread of conversations” and that these incidents are “growing more frequent, more pronounced and more worrisome.”

Biden was so worn out from trips to Europe prior to last week’s debate that he had to be “given time for an afternoon nap each day” during his week-long debate prep — in which he never started work earlier than 11 a.m. — in order to recharge his batteries, according to the report.

The White House is refusing to let Kevin C. O’Connor, the White House physician, answer questions from the media about Biden’s condition and said that O’Connor does not believe that Biden needs to be re-evaluated for Parkinson’s disease — even though the condition that most speculate Biden has is some form of dementia. The administration went even further and denied that Biden had ever taken “Levodopa or other drugs for that condition.”
