Imagine being so unpopular, so absurd and untouchable that even “creepy,” “sleepy” Joe Biden doesn’t want your endorsement.
That’s the situation the former president Barack (Barry) Obama finds himself in after lending his endorsement to the nation’s oldest presidential candidate.
According to Zerohedge, “Former vice president and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden says he asked former President Obama not to endorse him, as whoever wins should do so on their own merits.”
Well, that’s very big of him. Are we supposed to believe that creepy Joe would turn down a clear advantage in the race to beat Trump? We don’t think so. We think Biden sees Obama as a political albatross.
But there could be more to this. You see, if Biden runs on Obama’s endorsement- then the remaining Democrat candidates will be forced to besmirch the name for the country’s first black president.
They don’t want to do that, particularly because the fact that he held office for two full terms is the closest thing to some modicum of purchase on the moral high ground the Democrats have.
Since the 2016 election, they have flagrantly squandered every bit of political credibility they once had. They don’t want to damage their Obama cred by having to discount any praise Obama might have for Creepy Joe.
When Biden was asked why he thinks Obama has yet to endorse him, he replied, “I asked President Obama not to endorse, and he doesn’t wanna — he should — whoever wins this nomination should win it on their own merits.”
It seems odd.
Maybe Biden remembers how ridiculous it looked when Obama gave him the medal of freedom and he cried like a little girl being groped by a creepy old man in front of a bevy of reporters.
Maybe he’s seen the resurfacing of the intentionally childish friendship bracelets with stars smiles and pizza-shaped beads on them.
Or, maybe it’s the fact that Obama has made zero effort to defend Biden while Creepy Joe faces all kinds of accusations of… well, being creepy.
At the time of this writing, at least eight women have gone public with claims that Sleepy Joe touched them inappropriately. And there’s even more pressure coming from leftist organizations as Biden gears up for his groping-fueled 2020 run for the White House.
A political action group responsible for lifting Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to the place of prominence that she presently enjoys, had this to say about Biden’s bid for the presidency;
“The old guard of the Democratic Party failed to stop Trump, and they can’t be counted on to lead the fight against his divide-and-conquer politics today. The party needs new leadership with a bold vision capable of energizing voters in the Democratic base who stayed home in 2016. Joe Biden stands in near complete opposition to where the center of energy is in the Democratic Party today.”
And they’re not wrong. Biden’s opening public service announcements have been decidedly conservative in nature.
He’s been promoting American exceptionalism. That really is in direct opposition to the current values of the Democrat party.
Biden’s opening ad claims that America is a great place, that it was built on fine ideals and that we have sometimes fallen away from those ideals. His essential premise is that we are great, and we could be greater.
This is not what the Democrat party of 2019 believes or promotes. They believe that America was founded on slavery and greed, on sexism and oppression. Their message is that America needs to be punished, reformed, and reformatted.
Then there’s the simple fact that he is a straight, (if being attracted to underage girls is straight) white man.
That alone makes the Dems want to see his blood to dry in the sun. The Democrats are going to eat Joe Biden alive.
If his history of shrinking before controversy is any indicator- he will cave to every b.s. accusation of ideological impurity they level at him.
If that’s not enough to kill Creepy Joe’s sleepy shot at the White House, then Michael Avenatti’s ringing endorsement certainly will.
That’s right, the creepy porn lawyer who is prison bound for trying to blackmail Nike executives for millions has just released a statement in which he praised Biden unreservedly.
In fact, before his Twitter account was suspended, he followed this statement with a tweet which read, “Joe Biden has the fight, intelligence and fortitude to beat Trump and begin to make America, America again. He has my enthusiastic support.”
If that doesn’t terminate Biden’s chances, we don’t know what will.
