Powerful Dems' Plot to Replace Biden Involves Taylor Swift, Oprah: Report

A new proposal is circulating among Democrats to initiate a "blitz primary" to replace President Joe Biden as the party's nominee.

According to a report by Semafor on Sunday, Rosa Brooks, a Georgetown University law professor who served in the Obama and Clinton administrations and advised Biden in 2020, and Ted Dintersmith, a venture capitalist and philanthropist, are the architects of this plan.

“In the midst of malaise and crisis, we can forge an uplifting path,” Dintersmith shared with the outlet.

The strategy, detailed in a memo shared with Semafor, suggests Biden should step down from his campaign in the coming days.

With support from Vice President Kamala Harris, Biden would unveil this new system.

Prospective candidates would have a brief window to decide if they want to participate in the "blitz primary." The six candidates with the most delegate votes would compete for the nomination while committing to positive campaign practices.

Weekly forums featuring prominent moderators such as Michelle Obama, Taylor Swift, and Oprah Winfrey would provide the candidates a platform to discuss their positions on various issues.

Using ranked-choice voting, a nominee would be chosen before the Democratic National Convention begins in Chicago on August 19.

According to the memo, Biden would be celebrated as a "modern-day George Washington" for stepping aside.

“We can limp to shameful, avoidable democracy-ending defeat. Or Democrats can make this Our Finest Hour. While we hope for help from Lord Almighty, the Lord helps those who help themselves,” the memo states, referencing Biden’s remark that only the “Lord Almighty” could persuade him to withdraw. “We need to act. Now.”

The Biden campaign informed Semafor that the president has no intention of ending his campaign.

Democratic Rep. Ritchie Torres of New York posted on X that Democrats are harming themselves by turning against Biden.

“Weakening a weakened nominee seems like a losing strategy for a presidential election,” he commented. “The piling-on is not so much solving a problem as much as it is creating and compounding one.”

In response, Biden stated on Monday that "the elites in the party" were attempting to force him out.

“Run against me. Go ahead. Announce for president. Challenge me at the convention,” he said in an MSNBC interview.

Biden asserted he had traveled across the country since the debate to confirm his belief that the party still wants him as the nominee.

“I’m not going anywhere … I wouldn’t be running if I didn’t absolutely believe that I am the best candidate to beat Donald Trump in 2024,” he declared.
