Report: John Kerry Overheard Discussing Possible 2020 Bid Amid Concern Of ‘Sanders Taking Down The Democratic Party’

Former Secretary of State John Kerry overheard discussing a potential 2020 bid amid concerns over Bernie Sanders.

Kerry, who has been campaigning for former Vice President Joe Biden, cited “the possibility of Bernie Sanders taking down the Democratic Party — down whole” as the reason for potentially entering the race. An NBC News analyst overheard part of the conversation while Kerry was talking on the phone in the lobby restaurant of the Renaissance Savery Hotel in Des Moines, Iowa, on Sunday.

“Maybe I’m f—ing deluding myself here,” Kerry said, explaining that he would have to step down from the board of Bank of America and stop making paid speeches.

DES MOINES, Iowa — Former Secretary of State John Kerry — one of Joe Biden’s highest-profile endorsers — was overheard Sunday on the phone at a Des Moines hotel explaining what he would have to do to enter the presidential race amid “the possibility of Bernie Sanders taking down the Democratic Party — down whole.”

Sitting in the lobby restaurant of the Renaissance Savery hotel, Kerry was overheard by an NBC News analyst saying “maybe I’m f—ing deluding myself here” and explaining that in order to run, he’d have to step down from the board of Bank of America and give up his ability to make paid speeches. Kerry said donors like venture capitalist Doug Hickey would have to “raise a couple of million,” adding that such donors “now have the reality of Bernie.”

Asked about the call later on Sunday, Kerry said that he was “absolutely not” contemplating joining the Democratic primary race.

It’s not clear how serious Kerry was on the call about jumping into the race. But that he would even discuss the possibility suggests that prominent members of the Democratic Party remain deeply unsettled by the current field, Sanders’ strength in the polls, and the ability of any candidate to defeat President Donald Trump.  More

In a tweet, Kerry denied plans to enter the race, though he later deleted the statement and reposted it without the expletive.

“As I told the reporter, I am absolutely not running for President. Any report otherwise is f—ing (or categorically) false. I’ve been proud to campaign with my good friend Joe Biden, who is going to win the nomination, beat Trump, and make an outstanding president,”

Bernie Sanders didn’t harm the Democrat party, he’s the only one of them who’s honest enough to call himself what he actually is. Kerry, Obama, Biden, Pelosi, Schumer, Omar, AOC, Tlaib, Pressly, and the rest of you lying hypocrites did!
