Yesterday, former President Barack Obama finally endorsed Joe Biden. In his video, he tried to get Americans to financially support the DNC, accusing the right of having a “massive war chest.” Sen. Ted Cruz went on to point out one inconvenient fact to Obama. He destroyed Barack’s fake narrative.
Yes, Obama finally endorsed Joe Biden for president. The man who reportedly told Joe, “You don’t need to do this,” reluctantly backed his campaign. Funny how Barack waited until there was literally no one left to endorse. Why should his backing matter now, with when all the other Democrats dropped out?
Remember, Obama endorsed Hillary back in 2016. Something tells me his endorsement of a man with ever-increasing dementia won’t amount to much. But what was telling about Obama’s video was the suggestion that Democrats are facing a juggernaut in the Trump campaign. He said the “other side has a massive war chest,” as if the DNC is a weak underdog. He also said Republicans have a propaganda network that spreads lies. Oh, that’s rich.
Ted Cruz had something to say about that.
Obama had the audacity to attack Republicans by saying, “The other side has a massive war chest. The other side has a propaganda network with little regard for the truth.”
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) took aim and obliterated Obama, firing back this missile on Twitter, “Shorter Obama: ‘Dems only have 8 of the 10 richest American billionaires—including Bloomberg, Bezos & the Google founders—plus Soros & Steyer. And we’ve only got ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, WaPo, NYT & just about every other newspaper in America. How can we compete on $$ and propaganda?’” [Source: Daily Wire]
Obama was right, in that the Trump campaign and the GOP have something of a “war chest.” But what he did not say was that war chest was provided… by the American people. Trump’s team has broken fundraising records, thanks to the enthusiasm of everyday people. But Obama seemed to imply Trump got that money from big, corrupt donors. Nope, that’s the liberal side.
But what the heck was Obama claiming when he said Trump has a “propaganda network with little regard for the truth”? Talk about the pot calling the kettle black! The Democrats have enjoyed ENDLESS fake news, spin, and propaganda from the mainstream media for decades. They’ve sat back and let the corporate media—which controls nearly all of what we see and hear—lie to give them an advantage.
What does the “other side” (meaning us) have to compete with that? Only the truth and the support of millions of honest Americans.
Obama, once again, is accusing conservatives of the very thing the left is guilty of. Democrats like him were able to get away with almost anything, because the media refused to call him on it. They always spun the worst to protect him. Let’s not forget how in 2009, the country faced another health crisis. But we didn’t shut down our country over that disease, did we? Partly because the media refused to hype up the problem, to protect they newly installed, liberal president.
Even CNN’s Tapper admitted in 2017 that, “President Obama said things that weren’t true and got away with it more for a variety of reasons, and one is the media was much more supportive of him.”
Now, more than ever, Democrats don’t represent regular, American folks. They are funded by powerful billions in the tech, entertainment, and corporate industries. They are globalists that will sell out every last citizen to make a buck. Ironically, the party Democrats have accused of being greedy sellouts for years is the only one working to save the economy and put Americans first.
Obama knows this. He just doesn’t say it. And he thinks he can still bamboozle voters into backing a man like Joe Biden, who is so old and out-of-touch that he can’t even form his own sentences.
Something tells me Obama’s “charm” isn’t going to work this time.
