Obama Claims He Would Not Allow A Sanders Win
It looks like the tables are once again turned against Bernie Sanders. Back in 2016, Sanders had the DNC and Hillary against him. This time its former president Barrack Obama, who claims he would speak out against Sanders if he was the frontrunner. He claims that he doesn’t feel Sanders is a threat right now but would act if Sanders found a way to the top. Looks like Sanders can never catch a break.
“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.
But a new Politico Magazine report gives a clearer picture of what Obama is worried about — claiming he has said in private he’d speak out against Sanders if it looked like he could actually win.
“Back when Sanders seemed like more of a threat than he does now, Obama said privately that if Bernie were running away with the nomination, Obama would speak up to stop him,” the report says. An Obama spokesperson, however, reportedly noted that the former president has stated that he would get behind the Democratic nominee regardless of who it is.”
“When it comes to Sanders, I asked one close adviser whether Obama would really lay himself on the line to prevent a Sanders nomination. “I can’t really confirm that,” the adviser said. “He hasn’t said that directly to me. The only reason I’m hesitating at all is because, yeah, if Bernie were running away with it, I think maybe we would all have to say something. But I don’t think that’s likely. It’s not happening.” (Another close Obama friend said, “Bernie’s not a Democrat.”)
Sanders has been trailing at 3rd for a while now when it comes to Dem Presidential candidates. Warren seems to have taken most of the steam out of his campaign. And now that Bloomberg has thrown his hat in the ring, with his practically endless funds, it is looking even more likely that this will be another loss for Sanders.
