Barack Obama is one of the most ruthless politicians in American history.
But Obama pulled off a cutthroat operation that surprised even Democrats.
Barack Obama executed a behind-the-scenes betrayal that will have you speechless.
During the 2020 campaign, Barack Obama pointedly refused to endorse Joe Biden.
However, that did not mean Obama sat passively on the sidelines.
When it became apparent Biden would win the nomination, Obama engaged in a behind-the-scenes campaign to pressure Bernie Sanders out of the race.
The New York Times exclusively reports:
For months, Mr. Obama had kept in close contact with senior party officials, in hopes of preventing a repeat of the protracted and nasty 2016 primary race.
Then, in the weeks after it became clear that Mr. Biden was the party’s near-certain nominee, Mr. Obama — telling a friend he needed to “accelerate the endgame” — had at least four long conversations with his former vice president’s remaining rival, Senator Bernie Sanders. Mr. Obama’s efforts to ease the senator out of the race played a significant role in Mr. Sanders’s decision to end his bid and endorse Mr. Biden, according to people close to the Vermont independent.
This is not the first time the Democrat Party establishment ganged up on Sanders.
In 2016, emails showed that the Democratic National Committee helped rig the primary in Hillary Clinton’s favor with schemes that included passing her a debate question.
After Joe Biden won the South Carolina primary, the Democrat Party establishment orchestrated a coordinated strike where Amy Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg dropped out of the race and endorsed Biden.
They were joined by a legion of party elites and the three days between South Carolina and Super Tuesday turned the news into the equivalent of a billion dollar infomercial for Biden.
President Trump called out Democrats for sabotaging the primary against Sanders on social media.
The President tweeted that “Nobody wants to say that if Elizabeth Warren gets out of the race before Super Tuesday, Crazy Bernie Sanders wins virtually every state in a blowout…NOT EVEN CLOSE! I haven’t heard one member of the Fake News Establishment even mention this irrefutable fact. FAKE NEWS!”
Obama finally endorsed Biden after Sanders dropped out of the race.
But in private, Obama long ago plunged the dagger into the back of Sanders.
After the Democrat establishment stacked the deck against Sanders in 2016, a good chunk of Sanders’ supporters stayed home on Election Day, voted third party or even voted for Trump because of Trump’s position on trade.
In a close election, that block of voters proved to play a major factor in Hillary Clinton’s defeat.
Polls show record low levels of enthusiasm among Democrat voters for Biden’s candidacy.
Obama scheming behind the scenes to “ease” – i.e. pressure – Sanders out of the race only heightens the risk for Democrats for a 2016 repeat.
