Former President Barack Obama is worried by the upward ascent of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in the presidential primary polls, according to sources within the Democratic Party, and he may come out publicly against the openly socialist candidate.
Fox Business host Charles Gasparino announced the news on Twitter today:
SCOOP: Dem Party sources who have spoken w @BarackObama say former prez is growing increasingly anxious about @BernieSanders rise in the national polls & where the avowed socialist would take the country; he is considering a public statement addressing it more now @FoxBusiness

Obama is far from blameless in Sanders’ rise as a political leader, as he helped to create the monster that is hijacking the Democrat Party and taking it to the far left. Obama endorsed Sanders in 2006 and stumped for him on the campaign trail:

Years later, Obama now wants to stifle Sanders because the Vermont Senator’s brand of socialism, which aims to cut corporations down to size and protect workers, is different than Obama’s brand of socialism, which empowered corporations and did nothing to protect workers while relentlessly demonizing white Americans.
Obama surrogates are already publicly trashing Sanders as more Democrat voters unite behind him.
“He’s beginning to consolidate the Left in his party,” said Jim Messina, who was Obama’s former campaign manager, during an MSNBC appearance. “He has a relationship with these voters, he’s been campaigning with these voters for now six years, he knows New Hampshire voters really well, and people are beginning to come to him.”
“But in the general election, it’s a message that I think is going to get him killed. I think he’s the worst candidate in a general election for exactly that reason,” Messina added.
“You think Bernie is the worst candidate?” asked Morning Joe co-anchor Willie Geist.
“I don’t think there’s a question about it,” replied Messina. “I think it’s very clear to me that these swing voters, that I care about, the Trump-Obama voters in Midwestern states, Bernie Sanders is not the candidate we need to beat Donald Trump in November.”
Obama’s former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton also released blistering attacks against Sanders in recent days.
“He was in Congress for years. He had one senator support him. Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done,” Clinton said, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “He was a career politician. It’s all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it.”
“It’s not only him, it’s the culture around him. It’s his leadership team. It’s his prominent supporters. It’s his online Bernie Bros and their relentless attacks on lots of his competitors, particularly the women,” Clinton explained, before adding that Sanders is responsible for this behavior.
“Then this argument about whether or not or when he did or didn’t say that a woman couldn’t be elected, it’s part of a pattern,” she added. “If it were a one-off, you might say, ‘OK, fine.’ But he said I was unqualified. I had a lot more experience than he did, and got a lot more done than he had, but that was his attack on me.”
Despite the Democrat establishment uniting against Bernie Sanders, he continues to rise in the polls. He is arguably the front-runner heading into a tightly-contested Iowa caucus that is a little over a week away for the Democrats.

Obama may have to come out and throw Sanders under the bus as the Democrats grow more desperate to stop their insurgent socialist candidate with a growing and devoted following of radical Marxists.
Rapper Lil Pump Pulls a 50 Cent by Praising President Donald Trump for His Tax Policy
Will Other Rappers Follow Suit?
Soundcloud rapper Lil Pump endorsed President Donald Trump’s re-election bid on October 25, 2020.
The rapper alluded to Trump’s tax policies, which stand in sharp contrast to Joe Biden’s pro-tax hike agenda.
On Instagram, the rapper posted a photo-shopped image of himself and the president, with text saying “THE DAY I MET TRUMP #trump202022020.”
Lil Pump, whose government name is Gazzy Garcia, then released a video further detailing why he endorsed Trump, alluding to Trump’s tax plans. “All I gotta say is Trump 2020 b****” Lil Pump exclaimed. “F*** I look like paying a extra 33 is tax for Biden, b***** ass n—. F**** sleepy Joe n— Trump 2020 b****.”
Additionally, famed Queens rapper 50 Cent complained about Joe Biden’s tax policies, which is indicative of a growing sect of the rap community that is not exactly pleased with the prospects of a high tax environment under Biden.
That said, its remains to be seen if this trend crystallizes into a broader anti-tax movement in the rap space. Most rappers tend to promote culturally leftist narratives and don’t give alternative views on the Right much consideration. Like many other institutions, the rap space has seen a total takeover by the Left.
Curiously, Garcia held anti-Trump views on a previous occasion. Right after the 2016 presidential election, Lil Pump tweeted: “F*** DONALD TRUMP.”
There maybe a budding revolt against political elites. Culture matters and when it becomes clear that elites cannot even control the thoughts of cultural icons, all bets are off. Obviously, rappers should not be expected to serve as the vanguard of the America First movement. But such types of dissent should be encouraged at a time when nationalists need all the support they can get.
Once cultural barriers break down, a massive realignment is bound to happen, which is why elites want most cultural representatives to stay in line and repeat their talking points like mindless drones.
