Joe Biden just embarrassed himself in front of the world with a jaw-dropping claim about Obama
Joe Biden’s campaign for President is not going the way he thought it would.
He continues to sabotage himself with insane statements.
And he just embarrassed himself in front of the world with a jaw-dropping claim about Obama.
The only thing Joe Biden has going for him is his former position as Vice President under Barack Obama.
He has been milking that for all it’s worth since announcing his campaign.
But he still hasn’t received Obama’s endorsement, and reports claim that Obama never wanted him to run for President to begin with.
According to Biden, he’s completely fine with that, telling a reporter that he doesn’t need Obama’s endorsement “because everyone knows I’m close with him.”
Breitbart News reports:
Joe Biden dismissed needing Barack Obama’s endorsement in his bid for the 2020 Democrat nomination, despite running on the former president’s legacy.
The former vice president, who is quick to tout the Obama-Biden administration on the campaign trail, was asked about the relationship with his former running mate during an interview with Politico on Monday. In particular, Biden was questioned if the former president’s non-endorsement would impact him down the line when primary voters are confronted between only two or three candidates for the nomination.
“No, because everyone knows I’m close with him,” Biden said, after reiterating he had not asked the former president for his support and would not do so once the field winnowed. “I don’t need an Obama endorsement.”
He went on to claim that the former president was not as crucial to putting together the vaunted Obama coalition as many believe. Biden, in fact, suggested he deserved just as much credit for ginning up black turnout in states like Pennsylvania, Colorado, Virginia, and Florida
Biden is slipping badly in recent polling.
While he still holds a lead nationally, he is losing in key states like Iowa and New Hampshire, which will ultimately decide the election.
Without Obama’s support, it is unlikely he will grow the necessary support to win in those states, which will ultimately doom his entire campaign.
