If you thought Joe Biden was old, think again. Voters may be seeing a familiar face on the ballot box in 2024 if President Joe Biden opts out of running again.
A senior adviser for Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont shared that he thinks that the 81-year-old self-proclaimed democratic socialist may pursue a presidential run if Joe Biden decides not to run again.
Top adviser Faiz Shakir claimed that he assumed Senator Bernie Sanders might “give it a hard look” at his Presidential aspirations.
Shakir, who is currently an adviser to the Senator and managed Bernie Sanders’ 2020 presidential campaign, told CBS News he believes Biden will still run come 2024.
However, Shakir made it abundantly clear that this is a serious thought in Bernie’s given the chance Biden does not pursue reelection.
“I don’t want to make the judgment for him. Obviously, it would be his choice to make. But I assume that he would want to reevaluate it.”
The adviser didn’t forget to mention the glaring issue (other than being a socialist) regarding Sander’s presidential run; his age.
Shakir went on to say with Sanders, at the age of 81, is”very aware that he’s older now and he’d have to make a real judgment about his own vigor and his stamina and his desire and hunger and passion to do this a third time. But if it were an open field? Yeah, I’m confident he would take another look at it and say, ‘Do I want to do this or not?'”
As scary as it is that a democratic socialist like Sanders may pursue another presidential run, some of Shakir’s wording appears to be even more frightening. When speaking with CBS News and addressing the two failed presidential runs, Shakir claimed that Sanders did not just run for the oval office but to start a revolution in the youth.
Scary and dangerous wording coming from the socialist.

Since Biden is 80, and his mental capabilities appear to slip by the day, many people believe that he will not make it to run for another presidential term. Regardless of his blatant health issues, the aging and fumbling President has continued to say that he will run for re-election.
Biden has recently even received support from big players in the democratic party from people such as Nancy Pelosi and even Gavin Newsom, who has been floated by many as the potential future Democratic nominee, despite his horrific attempt as Governor of California.
“I’m all in; put me in, coach … We have your back,” Newsom is reported to have told Biden over the phone.
