Mike Papantonio:             Democrat candidates are telling President Biden to stay away from their races as the midterms approach. Oh, you know, I got a different take on this. I’m just so tired of Biden having to take all the blame for everything. Okay. Look, it’s not Biden, it’s all these, it’s all these hangers on, these advisors, these nutcases, these flakes that are advising Biden. But nevertheless, it’s Biden’s legacy that’s being affected. You know, we come on here and we talk about all the bad decisions sometime, but we have to talk about those stories. But at the bottom of the story, somebody has told him to do this. And he has, he has surrounded himself with a bunch of numb nuts. And that’s why his legacy is in shambles.

Farron Cousins:                  Absolutely. I’m, a hundred percent correct on that. And what is interesting now though, is that Biden almost finds himself in, I guess the opposite of, of Trump world. Trump world, those people are begging him every day, please come and save me.

Mike Papantonio:             Really?

Farron Cousins:                  You know.

Mike Papantonio:             Is that, is that happening out there?

Farron Cousins:                  It, it is. And with Biden, it’s the opposite. It’s for the love of God, don’t mention my name. And, and this is real. You have candidates like Tim Ryan who’s in a fight for his life up there. And he says, listen, I don’t, I don’t want, I’m not inviting anybody. Please don’t come to my state. I can do this. Go away.

Mike Papantonio:             Biden and Pelosi, please stay away from me, man. Please stay away. Okay. So now here’s, here’s what I think is interesting that you’ve got, you know, he, he’s an old guy. Okay. He’s a little tired. This guy’s been in politics for 45 years. That’s all he’s ever done. You gotta get tired. So you say, let me pick some people who are gonna help me make the right decision. I don’t think he could have done a more pitiful job in the way he surrounded himself with these flakes. They’re absolutely flakes and they’re killing his presidency. And nobody’s talking about that. It’s all Biden, you idiot. Biden, you know, you, it, it’s, it’s attacked Biden, attack Biden. And because of that, he’s left in a place where the Democratic candidates are saying, please don’t show up. You know, please don’t come here because you’re gonna hurt me.

Farron Cousins:                  Well, you know, it’s a good point too, because he’s been in politics more than 40 years. So have those same advisors.

Mike Papantonio:             Yes.

Farron Cousins:                  They all came up together.

Mike Papantonio:             Talk about, talk about that a little bit. That’s where I was headed with this.

Farron Cousins:                  Because most of these are holdovers from the Bill Clinton administration.

Mike Papantonio:             Yes.

Farron Cousins:                  The hangers on.

Mike Papantonio:             Carville, Begala, you know, the, one of the brothers I keep.

Farron Cousins:                  The Podestas.

Mike Papantonio:             Podesta brothers, the Mooks. It’s like, it’s like you say, wait, let me get this right. You have screwed up so bad, but you’re still invited to the party. You’re still gonna be able to advise him. And it, it make, it turns my stomach because I don’t think he’s a bad man. I think he wants to do well, but he’s got a bunch of numb nuts.

Farron Cousins:                  Well, and.

Mike Papantonio:             That are, that are telling him what to do.

Farron Cousins:                  And the difference is, in ’08, Obama didn’t use those people because those were Hillary’s people.

Mike Papantonio:             That’s a good point.

Farron Cousins:                  Because she was using.

Mike Papantonio:             That’s a good point.

Farron Cousins:                  And suddenly, uh-oh.

Mike Papantonio:             They’re back.

Farron Cousins:                  Obama has success, and then things start to go off the rails because then he brought in Hillary, then he hires all these people.

Mike Papantonio:             Yeah.

Farron Cousins:                  And the rest is history.

Mike Papantonio:             Is Hillary gonna show up? Is she gonna show up again? I mean, really?

Farron Cousins:                  I, I don’t know. But I’ll tell you what, who is out there, who somebody who candidates are saying, yeah, please come.

Mike Papantonio:             Obama.

Farron Cousins:                  Well.

Mike Papantonio:             Obama, hopefully is.

Farron Cousins:                  Bernie.

Mike Papantonio:             Oh, Bernie.

Farron Cousins:                  Bernie is doing.

Mike Papantonio:             What’s he making, a 17 city stop?

Farron Cousins:                  Yeah. He’s, he’s going all out in these final weeks. And the candidates love it because he’s the most popular politician in America.

Mike Papantonio:             Yeah.
