Why Barack Obama Secretly DESPISES Bernie Sanders

Former President Barack Obama and his network of advisors and consultants can’t stand Sen. Bernie Sanders, and it’s not hard to see why.

Sanders, a nominally independent senator who caucuses with the Democrats and is running for the Democratic nomination for the presidency, has come out against many of the former president’s viewpoints. The senator and his advisors have made no secret of the fact that they don’t view former President Obama as sufficiently progressive, a stance that clearly irks the former president and his allies.

However, the former vice president has found himself at a loss regarding how to handle Sen. Sanders’ rising popularity. The senator from Vermont is currently in second place nation-wide, far ahead of every other candidate besides former Vice-President Joe Biden. What is more, Sen. Sanders’ popularity is on the rise, as is evidenced by the fact that he has raised more money than any other candidate in the last quarter. Because Sen. Sanders’ support comes mostly from voters and not large corporations, his stellar fundraising stats make it clear that a large portion of the Democrat electorate supports him.

Obama has been wary of attacking Sen. Sanders, instead using social media to warn Democrats about “moving too far to the left”. However, he has yet to refer to the socialist senator directly.

At the same time, many of former President Obama’s aides aren’t taking Sen. Sanders seriously, openly stating that there is no way he will win the nomination. Neera Tanden, the policy director for the Obama-Biden presidential campaign, simply stated that money doesn’t translate into votes, without noting that people who give to presidential candidates usually wind up voting for them as well. Another senior aide dismissed Sen. Sanders’ campaign by calling the senator a “zombie candidate,” and saying that his ascent in the polls wasn’t worrisome enough to plan a strategy for stopping him.

Others note that there are other progressive candidates running for office, and note that Sen. Sanders doesn’t have a lot of support from African-American voters. The dismissive comments sound familiar — many dismissed Sen. Sanders for this same reason in 2016 during his primary battle with Hillary Clinton. The conflict resulted in many hard-left voters staying home on election day, or voting for Green Party candidate Jill Stein instead. Some even defected completely and voted for Trump.

Obama and other establishment Democrats clearly don’t appreciate the fact that Sanders challenges their status. It’s hard to tell what the long-term consequences will be at this point, but they could play out the same way they did in 2016 — and earn Trump a second term.

    • COME ON OBAMA. YOU HATE AMERICA. YOU AND MICHELE HAVE ALWAYS HATED AMERICA. YOU ARE STILL CARRYING ON AS AS IF YOU ARE OUR PRESIDENT. YOU ARE OF A COMMUNIST PARTY. WE DON’T NEED YOU BUT YOU KEEP TRYING TO RUN OUR BEAUTIFUL AMERICA. WE NEED PEOPLE THAT ARE TRUE TRUE AMERICANS. THIS IMPEACHMENT IS A HOAX. TRUMP WILL BE OUR NEXT PRESIDENT, BECAUSE HE HAS BEEN THE BEST FOR THE LAST DECADE.

  1. Bernie is a Card-Carrying Communist ! Plain and Simple. He would ruin America’s Democracy and Freedoms withing months turning us into a Communist Dictatorship Country! American’s can’t allow this to happen. Bernie now LOVES Money…..that is the only reason he joined in the Dem Party running again……………….he made millions of dollars, now owns 3 mulimillion dollar homes……….should we say more?????
    Corrupt to the core.
    And Eliz Warren is just like him.

  2. What people keep forgetting about are those Demonrat Party ‘Super Delegates’, I believe there are over 600 of them, who can vote for whoever they damn well please. They were the reason the 2016 primary was never in doubt for Hillary no matter how many states Bernie won – she had all the Super Delegates sown up in a neat little package and that meant she had the primary in the bag. And that’s why no one is taking Bernie as a serious threat now. The Super Delegates pretty much always vote for the establishment candidate. And that would be Biden. Why? Because the establishment knows they can manipulate Biden. They can get the befuddled old fool to do pretty much whatever they want. Bernie, not so much. Bernie is like Trump in that one sense. He’s uncontrollable and unpredictable. They can’t trust him to do what he’s told. So, no Super Delegates for you Sen. Sanders. And none for Fauxcahontas, either, because she’s just too damn scatterbrained. Buttigiege (or however the Hell you spell it)? He’s an unknown. No Super Delegates for him. And the billionaires can’t be controlled because they don’t need anyone. None for them, either. And the rest are non-entities. The Super Delegates have already called the shots. Like everything else with the Demonrats, everything else is smoke and mirrors for the benefit of the ‘great unwashed’ low information voter that is the heart and soul of the Demonrat voter base.

  3. I see a figure, coming over the horizon – oh, look ; it is in a Pantsuit ! It is about 3 feet wide, waddling along there, with several SUV’s following (maybe one of them is an ambulance !) It is a bit shorter than those goons beside it, hands out to catch it from any unpredicted stumble. It has blonde hair (Clairol #714, no doubt !) Oh, look ; George Soros is following, too. He has a silly t-shirt on, marked “I’m With Her” and a goofy side-ways arrow in the middle of a capital “H.” Could it be – is it actually – that CNN heroine called “Hillary ?”
