Biden forgets Harris exists

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), another black woman and rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, was standing just a few feet away from him. And she certainly hasn't offered Biden her endorsement."I'm right here!" Harris said, throwing up her arms before breaking out in laughter along with the rest of the debate audience.

That ' s why I'm running for president. Let's build opportunity for every American and restore integrity Announced in early April that he had prostate cancer, but has since had surgery that his staff called A close friend of former President Barack Obama , has told advisers that he envisions a campaign

When that conversation has come up internally, according to people involved in the discussions, he often says simply, “I can handle it.” Obama hasn ’ t committed to fundraising or other political activity beyond an email that went out last week, signed with his name, announcing the creation of a new

Tonight on his Fox News show, Tucker Carlson Tonight, Tucker Carlson espoused the theory that Michelle Obama could run for president in 2020, which could be the reason Barack Obama has yet to endorse his former vice president Joe Biden.

Michelle Obama has stated that she doesn't want to run for president because she is not interested in politics, but Carlson said not to bet against her entering the race.

Obama warned he would intervene to stop Bernie, had cutting words for Biden: report

  Obama warned he would intervene to stop Bernie, had cutting words for Biden: report Former President Barack Obama once warned he would intervene to stop Sen. Bernie Sanders from winning the Democratic presidential nomination, according to a new report.Obama has largely stayed on the sidelines to date, refraining from any endorsements though he has issued general warnings to the party to avoid calls for radical upheaval in their policy pitches. These warnings were seen as a swipe at candidates like Sens. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Sanders.

Why ? He wants to ensure that should he prevail and become the 2020 Democratic nominee , Biden Joe Biden asked his old boss, President Barack Obama , not to endorse him during the primary And the idea Michelle Obama will ever go anywhere near elected politics--let alone presidential politics-- is

“He’ s embarrassed that Obama ’ s not endorsing him, so he goes out and says , 'I “So, it could be that President Obama knows something because there is something going on in that brain of his.” Trump and Biden repeatedly have traded blows since the former vice president entered the 2020 race

"Now, last week, the former first lady issued a statement saying that she has no interest in being president," Carlson said. "That's what she claimed. But there are signs that that's not true."

Carlson pointed to the actions of Obama adviser David Axelrod as a harbinger of things to come, claiming Axelrod has run a "scorched earth" campaign against Biden.

"Axelrod has called him a liar, called him a coward, all but accused him of having dementia," Carlson said. "Now, would David Axelrod be doing all that without the consent of the Obamas? No. There's no chance."

Carlson's second point was that Barack Obama did not want Biden to run for president.

"Not only has Obama refused to endorse Biden," Carlson said, "he tried to stop Biden from running in the first place."

The problem is, this does not appear to be a plan shared by the former president or his closest advisers. © FoxNews.com Fox News contributor Karl Rove and 'The Five' co-host Juan Williams weigh in. First, there was the persistent criticism of Biden's campaign from Obama's inner circle. Then, there were the lingering questions over why "44" has not simply endorsed his former vice president. Now come reports that Obama has made discouraging — even derisive — comments about his candidacy.

Obama is well aware that endorsing Biden now places Democratic voters in a bad position: many respect Obama , and trust his opinion, and might vote for Biden on that alone. That ’ s not only unfair to the other candidates, it’s unfair to the party, and to the country. The US deserves the best possible

Obama has long said that selecting Joe Biden as his running mate is "one of the best decisions he ever made," said Obama Shortly after Joe Biden launched his 2020 presidential campaign bid on Thursday, a spokeswoman for his former boss, Barack Obama , said adding Biden to the ticket is

Carlson then showed a short clip of Biden's October interview with Norah O'Donnell on the CBS news program 60 Minutes. When asked if the former president offered to endorse Biden, the candidate said no.

"Nah, we didn't even get there," Biden said. "I asked him not to. He said okay. I think it's better. I think he thinks it's better for me."

Carlson called Biden's response "pathetic."

"Obama hasn't endorsed Joe Biden because he doesn't want to endorse Joe Biden," Carlson said, implying that Obama has other plans for his endorsement.

Books by the Obamas also played into Carlson's theory, specifically the timing of their release.

"Obama's presidential memoir was supposed to come out this year," Carlson said. "Now, its release has been delayed till the middle of the Democratic primaries. In other words, at exactly the moments when Democrats will be thinking deeply about how to beat Donald Trump, America will be talking about the Obamas. Coincidence? Maybe it is."

"Maybe it's also a coincidence that Michelle Obama just released another book last week, one that of course will require her to get on the road and talk to crowds," Carlson added. "Maybe she really isn't interested in joining the race, but that would make her unusual among Democrats in this country."

Carlson seemed to believe Michelle Obama had an outside chance of picking up the Democratic nomination, saying "unexpected things happen far more often than we imagine they do or that we pretend that they do."

"The Democratic Party is ripping itself apart over race and gender and class," Carlson said. "Michelle Obama, let's be honest, is one of the only people who could unite the party's warring factions."
