On this episode of Ruthless the Republican National Convention is just one week away, while the Democrats are still in disarray, uncertain about their candidate. The country is in uncharted territory, the Democrats are in chaos, and the fellas are ecstatic. Today's episode has a lot to cover, starting with a hilarious and bewildering clip from Joe Biden. During a speech, he left everyone scratching their heads with a completely unrelated comment about the overflow room. The fellas will unpack that and more as they dive into the Democratic nominee's latest antics. The Democratic nominee, who happens to be the current President, is struggling to regain his footing after a disastrous debate performance. He’s trying to project high energy on the campaign trail, but it’s proving to be quite a challenge. His attempt to reassure Democratic governors that he can still campaign despite his brain issues didn't exactly instill confidence. The fellas share some clips to illustrate just how off the rails things have gone. The Democratic donor class and major party figures are in a frenzy. The pressure is mounting, with big names expressing concern. It's clear that the party is deeply divided and unsure about Biden’s chances moving forward.

On this episode of Ruthless, this week, amidst a black swan media event, the fellas are delivering fresh content and crucial updates. Concerns about Biden’s debate performance are being dismissed by many Democrats. However, this story has gained significant traction, making it to mainstream media outlets which discussed Biden’s cognitive decline and debate performance days later. The Democrats are struggling to navigate this situation, unlike Republicans who deal with an adversarial media regularly. The shift in momentum suggests internal conflicts about Biden’s nomination. Notably, Nancy Pelosi’s inability to defend Biden convincingly hints at deeper issues. Amidst this, the fellas discuss the strategy if Democrats move on from Biden and the potential impact of Kamala Harris as a candidate. Harris’s candidacy is being considered despite her previous struggles in the 2020 race. The idea of Harris stepping in is surprising, considering the historical context with Hillary Clinton. Democratic politics remain dynamic, and Harris’s potential candidacy underscores the party’s challenges. This highlights the dilemma within the party, weighing Biden’s troubled candidacy against the risks of switching to Harris. CNN polls show Harris outperforming Biden in some demographics, yet these numbers should be approached with caution. Despite challenges, Harris has access to significant resources, which could ease a potential transition. Biden’s family urging him to stay in the race adds another layer to the ongoing debate. As this story develops, the decisions made in the coming days will shape the future of the Democratic Party. Stay tuned for more insights and updates on this evolving situation.   Check out this great new site from our sponsor Americans for Prosperity: securebordersecureamerica.com
