This ESPN star revealed what makes him embarrassed to be a Democrat

The sports media is even more far-left than the political media.

Americans learned this truth as social media allowed the public to see sportswriters and broadcasters stray far outside their lane and weigh in on every political fight under the sun.

But now this ESPN star revealed what makes him embarrassed to be a Democrat.

Stephen A. Smith says Democrats’ inability to replace Biden embarrasses him

It’s fair to say that Stephen A. Smith is the face of ESPN today.

Smith co-hosts the popular morning debate show First Take and serves as one of the pillars of the network’s NBA coverage.

Smith’s an outspoken Democrat.

But heading into the 2024 election, Smith is also a very frustrated Democrat.

In an interview with popular podcast host Patrick Bet-David, Smith lamented the fact that Democrats never found anyone to credibly challenge Joe Biden for the nomination despite polls for months showing that Democrats wanted a new flag bearer.

“And so for me, I find myself ashamed of the Democratic Party for their lack of a competitive fervor,” Smith began.

“You had since 2016 to come up with somebody else, and you still can’t do it? That is pathetic. It is pathetic,” Smith added. “And there is no excuse for it whatsoever.”

Smith brought the discussion back to Biden’s age and worried that Democrats blew it by not finding a younger candidate.

“It is 2024. In eight years, you should have been able to find somebody that could compete with this man other than a soon to be 82-year-old incumbent,” Smith continued.

Bet-David asked Smith if he still wanted to see Democrats win the 2024 election to which Smith surprisingly responded that the host asked a “fair” question, and that it was “hard to figure out.”

Would replacing Biden solve Democrats problems?

Joe Biden is clearly not fully functioning anymore.

But Joe Biden’s poll don’t stink just because of his age.

Americans reject Biden throwing open the southern border and smuggling in more than 7,000,000 illegal aliens.

Prices are up nearly 20 percent since Joe Biden took office thanks to a socialist spending spree that devalued the dollar.

And Joe Biden wants to ban gas-powered cars as part of the socialist Green New Deal.

Even if Democrats could replace Joe Biden – and they can’t – any candidate picked to replace him would have to run on this record as they would also support open borders, the Green New Deal, and trillions in new socialist spending.

That’s why polls showed Trump leading possible Biden replacements Kamala Harris, Gavin Newsom, and Gretchen Whitmer by even bigger margins than he led Biden.
