Is former President Barack Obama “stealing the spotlight” from presumptive President-elect Joseph R. Biden, now in the middle of being a presumptive president elect?
“Barack Obama refuses to let Joe Biden enjoy his victory in the 2020 election. Just days after Biden was declared the winner of the presidential election, Obama launched a publicity tour in support of ‘A Promised Land,’ the 768-page first volume of his third memoir,” observes Andrew Stiles, a senior writer for The Washington Free Beacon.
“Obama’s conveniently timed book tour is yet another attempt to undermine the political ambitions of his former running mate. Obama, for example, had repeatedly advised Biden not to run for president in the first place. In 2016, according to The New York Times, he ‘quietly pressured Mr. Biden to sit out the race, partly because he believed Mrs. Clinton had a better chance of building on his agenda.’ We all know how that turned out,” notes Mr. Stiles.
