This has gotta be a real kick in the corn flakes for old Bumbling Joe. Well, it turns out the most popular president in the history of the world was not actually a favorite of his BFF Obama from the get-go.
Looks like the “Joe Plan” had to be thrown together quickly and at the last minute, because according to this report, Obama wanted nothing to do with him.
It looks like Obama had no intention of supporting Joe – it only happened after all of the other Dem duds fell by the wayside. Instead, Obama was actually pushing for Elizabeth Warren to get the nomination. OUCH.
Obama was actually so behind Warren, that he was pulling strings behind the scenes to get donors to back her.
President Biden served with Obama for eight years as his vice president, but the new book “Lucky: How Joe Biden Barely Won the Presidency,” by The Hill’s Amie Parnes and Jonathan Allen of NBC, shows Obama helping Warren in an an October 2019 meeting in New York City with a group of powerful Black donors from the corporate world.
“Many candidates like the idea of being president,” Obama told the group, according to the book, which is being released next week. “But few really have a ‘why.’ ”
ary of objections the wealthy donors may have to Warren, who had vowed to raise taxes on the richest Americans, Obama personally vouched for her, noting they had overlapped during their time at Harvard and in the Senate and that she formed the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau during his administration. He urged the donors to back Warren if she’s the nominee despite any reservations they may have over her economic platform.
“So what if she raises your taxes a little bit? Compare that to what we have now,” he said, referencing former President Trump.
“Everyone in this room needs to pull their weight,” he added.

Joe worked alongside Obama for eight years and told all of us that the two of them were “BFFs” and even with all that, Obama still didn’t support him.
Well, can you really blame Barry? He probably knows best of all that Joe is an incompetent boob with dementia.
However, once Obama realized the American people would never get behind that half-baked kook Liz Warren, and Bernie was about to swoop in (again) and take the whole thing, Dementia Joe became the only option.
Nice to know that you’re the “only option” left and that’s why you got endorsed. But that’s okay…Joe’s so out of it, he probably doesn’t even remember there was a primary race.
