During the 2019 Democratic primary election season, former President Obama refused to endorse Joe Biden, who served as his Vice President for 8 years.
In April 2019, Fox News’ Peter Doocy confronted the Democratic presidential primary candidate at the airport. Doocy asked him why President Obama hasn’t endorsed him? An obviously frustrated Joe Biden responded, “I asked President Obama not to endorse,” he said, adding, “And he doesn’t wanna—And he said—Uh, we should—Whoever wins this nomination, should win it on their own merit.”
In June 2019, President Trump told The Hill reporters that Joe Biden skirted the issue of former President Obama’s non-endorsement by saying he “And then he goes and lies, and says ‘I asked the president not to endorse me,'” Trump added, “So it could be that President Obama knows something.”
The Baltimore Sun pointed out that President Obama’s video endorsement of Mr. Biden came after every other candidate had already pulled out.
He even waited for Bernie Sanders to suspend his campaign to endorse his former vice president. The “moderate” Mr. Obama and the formerly moderate Mr. Biden now appear to be in bed with the hard-left, Saul Alinsky, the socialist wing of their party.
Mr. Obama tried, but failed, to convince Mr. Biden not to run this year. According to The New York Times, Mr. Obama told Mr. Biden, “You don’t have to do this, Joe, you really don’t.”
Mr. Biden wrote in his book that Mr. Obama talked him out of running in 2016 in order to clear a path for Hillary Clinton. Mr. Biden wrote that Mr. Obama “played up the appeal of leaving politics and gave little encouragement about a possible bid.”
Again, according to The New York Times, Mr. Obama “offered every (2020 Democrat) candidate his counsel” and in December it leaked that the former president was secretly promoting then-candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren to possible donors.
Last December, Mr. Obama told a gathering in Singapore there would be “significant improvement across the board” if more countries had female leaders and that “old men” should get “out of the way.” It was a comment many took to be a slap at his much older (and male) vice president.
Every day Joe spends on the campaign trail, he unwillingly gives Republicans footage to use in their campaign ads, which prove the former VP is in cognitive decline.
With less than 3 weeks remaining before the election, the Democrat National Committee is announcing that Barack Obama is finally planning to hit the campaign trail for his former VP.
The New York Post reports- “President Obama plans to hit the trail soon, in addition to all the other activities he’s undertaken all year in support of electing VP Biden – as he’s said, we all have to do everything we can to win on November 3,” an aide to Obama told ABC News.
“He’s doing enough for our campaign,” Biden told reporters on Tuesday, according to Fox News. “He’ll be out on the trail and he’s doing well.”
A large number of Democrats have already voted by mail, or have had their ballots harvested, in what President Trump is calling the largest voter fraud scheme in American history. It seems a bit strange that Barack Obama waited so long to show his support for Old Joe.
The timing for his endorsement couldn’t be worse, as it was just revealed by the New York Post that bombshell emails have revealed Hunter Biden introduced his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, to a top executive at Burisma, even though Joe Biden previously denied that he ever met with Burisma officials.
The emails were obtained by the FBI after Hunter’s computer was dropped off at a Delaware computer repair store in April 2019. The owner of the store suspected the laptop belonged to Hunter Biden and turned the computer over to the FBI and smartly, gave a copy of the files to Rudy Giuliani’s attorney, Robert Costello.
