US Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is a “crook” and “devout Zionist” who will lose against President Donald Trump if he is nominated by his party to run against the incumbent Republican president, a political analyst and former US Senate candidate says.

“The utterly amazing thing to me is that the Democrats are putting all of their eggs in the basket of Joe Biden,” said Mark Dankof, who is also a broadcaster in San Antonio, Texas.

“Joe Biden in my judgment … is a crook; I think his involvement in this Burisma business in Ukraine is most telling,” Dankof told Press TV on Monday.

Biden’s son Hunter had served as a director for Ukrainian energy company Burisma when his father was US vice president during the Obama administration.

“He’s been involved in many other things that suggest he’s an extremely flawed candidate,” Dankof added. “Joe Biden is not mentally competent to run for the presidency of the United States.”

Democrats in the House launched an impeachment inquiry against Trump in September after a whistleblower alleged the Republican president pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Biden and his son over their involvement in Burisma.

Trump and his allies maintain that when Biden was vice president, he wanted Ukraine’s top prosecutor Victor Shokin removed in order to end an investigation into Burisma.

The House impeached Trump in December but he was ultimately acquitted by the Senate in February.

Biden emerged from this week’s Super Tuesday with wins in 10 of the 14 state primaries, and he is again the Democratic front-runner with the most delegates.

His rebound was followed by endorsements of fellow candidates Michael Bloomberg, Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar after each departed the presidential race.

A Reuters/Ipsos national opinion poll carried out last week showed US Senator Bernie Sanders was considered the most electable candidate for defeating Trump in November.

“This is the direction that Democrats are going in a desperate attempt to stop Bernie Sanders, but its leaving them wide open for a situation … where Donald Trump will mop up the floor with Joe Biden in the fall election,” Dankof said.

“Unfortunately, for those of us who are anti-war and are sick of wars of Israel’s behalf, this election does not bode well for us,” he added.

“You have a Zionist Trump and [Mike] Pence ticket, and then of course Joe Biden is a devout Zionist who is basically in the back pocket of the Israeli lobby himself, as virtually all of these Democratic candidates are, with the exception of Bernie Sanders.”
