LOL! James Comey Endorses Biden, Joe Says No Thanks

In the wake of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders’ early wins in the Democratic primaries for Iowa, New Hampshire, and Nevada, it seemed that former Vice President Joe Biden was quickly losing ground for a successful presidential bid. However, a runaway win in South Carolina and then several high-profile endorsements seem to have changed that, giving the centralist hope of a decent turn out for Super Tuesday, a day in which Democratic primary caucuses are held in 14 states, adding up to be more than one-third of all Democratic delegates.

Among those to support Biden were recent dropouts Senator Amy Klobuchar, former South Bend, Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg, and former Representative Robert “Beto” O’Rourke, as well as former U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice and Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Former Director the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) John Brennan also endorsed Biden, saying that the former V.P. “is one of the most honest, decent, practical, & experienced individuals with whom I have ever worked. If nominated & elected, he is capable of unifying our country & restoring America’s standing around the world.”

To each of these publicly-made endorsements, Biden, either personally or through his campaign, reached out and thanked their supportive gestures. For some, such as Beto and Buttigieg, this appreciation was even given with a possible job offer should Biden win the White House. Buttigieg may be the new leader of Housing and Urban Development, while Beto will be in charge of the “gun problem,” whatever that means.

But apparently, not everyone was given the same amount of gratitude.

Take former Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) James Comey, for example. When he publicly endorsed Biden on Wednesday, his offer of support was pretty much thrown back in his face for all the world to see. Not that we can blame anyone.

Comey, in his usual, the world needs my help attitude, tweeted his endorsement, saying:

“Voted in first Dem primary to support party dedicated to restoring values in W.H. I agree with @amyklobuchar: We need a candidate who cares about all Americans and will restore decency, dignity to the office. There is a reason Trump fears @joebiden and roots for Bernie.”

Can you just imagine him sitting there, being ever so proud of himself for saying this and wholeheartedly expecting a ton of praise to come flowing his way from his newly found Democratic Party and or Biden’s campaign?

Now, Comey is a registered Republican, but when he was fired by President Donald Trump early in Trump’s first term, no one expected him to hold to partisan lines for the 2020 election. The only question was which Democratic candidate he would choose.

And Biden, being the least left-leaning of the remaining candidates, would have a good bet on anybody’s part – not what we were waiting on the edge of our seat or anything.

But it seems his new party and candidate of choice doesn’t really want much to do with him either.

Mere moments after Comey posted his support of Biden, Andrew Bates, who is the Biden campaign’s Director of rapid response, tweeted this in response, claiming he wanted to “return” the endorsement.

“Yes, customer service? I just received a package that I very much did not order. How can I return it, free of charge?”

Wow. I mean, it doesn’t get much more embarrassing than that.

Eventually, about two hours later, Bates did go back on his comment to Comey. He claimed that the entire thing was intended to be a “lighthearted joke” and not to be taken seriously. So someone must have complained or called in crying… After all, we know just how touchy Comey and his dealings with Trump were.

Bates wrote, “I forgot the #1 rule of politics, which is that if you talk about anyone or anything related to 2016, common sense goes out the window. It was meant to be a lighthearted joke – not a rejection. We appreciate the vote of anyone repelled by Donald Trump.”

However, joke or not, the damage had already been done. And I’m guessing Comey wasn’t laughing.

  1. Hillary of course!! Then Joe will die from a massive stroke and Hillary will be President and Slick Willy will be back in The ORAL OFFICE interviewing interns!!! This stuff is made for SNL, is it not??

  2. Well said!! No he’s not, at all!! Al Sharpton calls Comey “His Homey” Two great Americans!! NOT!! LOL!!LOL!!LOL!!

  3. Comey is one of the biggest liars in Washington He still thinks he is relevant He is not. Go away James, you’ve lost all credibility

  4. Most decent honest and dependable person he has ever worked with, coming from John Brennan that makes me feel really confortable. Wow John looking for a cabinet position? Look you criminal you all are propping ole Joe up, so after he is nominated who are you going to throw into the ring of fire once you declare your candidate incompetent to hold office???? WATCH OUT AMERICA AS TO WHO IS LINING UP FOR A VP SPOT.

  5. If the republicans would be smarter they should have gotten some of these Democrats jailed who where part of the Russia hoax including some of these guys who were working for the FBI<CIA< NSA and many others for they would not be able to smear our president any more or for instance support guys like Biden or Sanders.

  6. Doltin Joe, the smoldering old toad, refused Commies endorsement with a wink and a sniff…er…smile!

  7. Comey’s not to bright is he.

  8. Fantastic comment and I 100% concur with your assessment! Furthermore, Biden can’t run the country – obozo would be calling the shots – horror of horrors👹. To save The Republic, VOTE RED!!!

  9. Pure gold? Surprising that Quid Pro Joe , doesn’t want to take the endorsement from another sleazeball.

  10. It is very funny how politicians love to take a big bite of the apple and then later they
    want to spit it out.

  11. The entire Biden tribe appears to be corrupt. I read a report today that Joe’s brother Frank is being investigated for fraud regarding his bamboozling of Americore, having made promises he never kept nor intended to keep, and taking a large loan from Americore that he has not paid back—sending Americore into bankruptcy. Cheating, lying, and corruption—the Biden family’s way of life. Yet Democrats support Biden for president, and there are actually voters who plan to vote for that amoral, immoral, demented old fool. Bring it on! Trump 2020!

  12. So it is ok for Biden to make comments that are intended to be funny, but not ok for President Trump!
    What a double standard we are living with.

  13. Comment is a liar and angry old man. He is a spoiled brat and goes off crying help him. What a fool.

  14. Amazing how the Democrats get away with saying , “It was a joke,” or “Maybe I chose the wrong words.” When a Republican says something they don’t like, they want to impeach them and send them straight to jail.

  15. Comey praising Biden for his honesty is hilarious. The lying, cheating, self-serving, corrupt elitist Comey praising his equally unethical, corrupt, morally bankrupt government insider colleague Biden proves how arrogant Deep State shills like Comey are. Trump 2020!

  16. Many of the people in 1787 were concerned that the constitution granted too much power to the national government. They were particularly concerned that the national government would intrude on individual liberty and intrude on State power.
    And now we have people like Comey.
