Ahead of his guest-hosting stint on Tucker Carlson Tonight, conservative author and ‘I Tawt I Taw a Puddy Tat’ singer Mark Steyn sat on the curvy couch to shoot the breeze with the Fox & Friends crew. And the panel had themselves a nice chuckle at the idea of Democrats possibly wanting a diverse presidential candidate.
After spending a few minutes slamming the media for its coverage of President Donald Trump’s trip to visit troops in Iraq, co-host Katie Pavlich brought up a recent Vanity Fair article about former Vice President Joe Biden allegedly being upset with Barack Obama for meeting with other potential Democratic presidential candidates.
“Seems like the former president is leaving behind Joe Biden as he pursues newer and younger candidates,” she said.
This caused Steyn to take some shots at Democratic Congressman Beto O’Rourke, stating that the former Texas Senate candidate hasn’t been elected dog catcher before claiming his real name is something like “John Smith.”
“It isn’t exotic enough,” he noted after Pavlich said O’Rourke’s birth name is Robert Francis.
“They’re looking for something more intersectional,” the Camp of the Saints superfan noted. “They’d like a Muslim transgender candidate but they’re going to have to make due with Joe Biden.”
That resulted in the all-white panel breaking out in laughter, with co-host Pete Hegseth nearly doubling over. Meanwhile, after talking about Biden a bit more, Steyn would go on to discuss Bernie Sanders’ possible candidacy.
“He was a callow young youth of like 89 last time,” he snarked. “But now he has got a bit more experience.”
This isn’t the first time that Steyn has made transgender jokes in relation to a Biden candidacy on Fox News airwaves. Earlier this month, he told Tucker Carlson that “Joe Biden should run as the first transgender woman candidate and dare the Democrat electorate to call him on it.”
