Rosie O’Donnell Tells Joe Biden: ‘Your Time Has Passed, Sit This One Out’
O’Donnell appeared on CNN expressing her concerns about Biden’s chances
Anti Trump actress and former View co-host Rosie O’Donnell has told 2020 hopeful Joe Biden to 'sit the 2020 presidential race out.'
O’Donnell appeared on CNN expressing her concerns about Biden’s chances against President Donald Trump.
The actress said Biden is “not the future of the Democratic Party.”
She added Hhs time has passed, and he should “sit this one out.
“I think that Joe Biden should say, ‘I’m going to sit this one out. I’m going to be an elder statesman, and I’m gonna advise,'” O’Donnell said.
O’Donnell said that despite the several polls arguing the Biden stands the greatest chance of taking down Trump; she doesn't believe it's true.
“I don’t believe that’s true,” she said.
The Hollywood activist said that the Democrat nominee should be someone who can use Biden’s experience, like Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D) or California Sen. Kamala Harris (D).
And then whoever is the nominee, I think, should think about how to best use somebody with the experience that Joe Biden has and all these years in politics. But he’s not the future of the Democratic Party, and I think we have now until we get a nominee to figure out who that person is. And in my opinion, it’s either Elizabeth Warren or Kamala Harris.
While she is open to both candidates, Warren is her first choice.
“I’m really for Elizabeth Warren. I think her plans that she has for just about everything and all that she did with the big banks and corporate shakedowns,” O’Donnell explained.
“She was a leader in so many ways and still is, and I think she is formidable against Trump and all of the money that she’s raised from non-lobbys,” she continued.
“It’s pretty astounding to me what she’s been able to do.”
“He’s antiquated in a lot of his thinking, a lot of his beliefs, a lot of his history is a long time ago. And I feel like it is time to pass the torch as Eric Swalwell said. It is time to pass the torch,” O’Donnell said.
“I don’t think 80 years old is an age to be starting a presidential job. I think you have to be 35 and there should an ending point. Your time has passed in terms of being president of the United States. That’s my personal opinion.”
O’Donnell made astonishing claims last month that there are more than 100,000 concentration camps across the United States.
The actress's bizarre claims added that the US is holding unaccompanied minors who illegally enter the U.S.Speaking on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live After Show,” O’Donnell was asked about the role she’s playing in Lights for Liberty, a rally launched to demand an end to “detention camps.”
