Far-Left NYC Mayor De Blasio Begs Warren to Endorse Sanders as His Campaign Craters

The socialist dream is dead, at least temporarily.

Following the implosion of the presidential campaign of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), his far-left supporters are getting desperate, and that includes New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio.

De Blasio is one of the most prominent public officials to endorse Sanders, and he wants other lefties to stick their necks out and lend their support for the hardcore socialist during his time of desperation.

“I deeply respect [Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts]. Our nation + our party are better + more progressive because of her leadership. Now our progressive movement needs her more than ever. Senator, if the shoe was on the other foot [Sanders] would have endorsed you already. Please join us!” he wrote in a pleading tweet on Tuesday morning.

De Blasio also hammered former Vice President Joe Biden in an MSNBC interview on “Morning Joe” on Tuesday morning, claiming that Biden “hasn’t been vetted.”

“Joe Biden hasn’t been vetted. He was in a perfect position: Early front-runner and then everyone thought he wasn’t gonna make it, turned their attention to [Mike Bloomberg], Bernie [Sanders], even to [Elizabeth] Warren for a while,” the mayor said while speaking with former Congressman Joe Scarborough.

“Joe Biden has a lot of issues he needs to speak to. If we don’t deal with it now, in the family, and have that blunt discussion, Donald Trump will,” he added, mentioning Biden’s positions on supporting the Iraq War, cutting social security and supporting Draconian criminal justice policies as being particularly problematic.

De Blasio’s recommendations have not been particularly well-received and have caused him to earn the scorn of his party’s establishment.

“Respectfully, I think a lot of people would think dealing with the coronavirus is a full time job for the Mayor of New York. Maybe stop telling a woman what to do and focus on that,” former Hillary Clinton aide Neera Tanden wrote in a tweet responding to De Blasio.

“Sir, we’re gonna need you to stop tweeting about your crush on Bernie and start addressing COVID-19 in the city for which you are *mayor,*” tweeted Eleanor’s Legacy, an identity politics group that promotes female candidates in New York.

“It assumes that she somehow owes him something here, and that Bernie doesn’t also owe her something, that Bernie doesn’t have responsibility in this equation — responsibility for his win or loss,” Democratic consultant Alexs Grenell said.

“That to me is what’s sexist — Elizabeth Warren is somehow responsible, by failing to provide an endorsement, for how Bernie performs as opposed to Bernie himself,” she added.

Bernie Bros such as NYC Mayor De Blasio only dig their hole deeper as they try to save Sanders’ fledgling campaign. Once the front-runner, it is now seemingly a formality that Biden will take the Democrat presidential nomination and face off against President Trump in November.

Obama Reportedly Said Pete Buttigieg Too ‘Gay’ and ‘Short’ to be President

Tell it like it is, Barack!

Published

Former president Barack Hussein Obama reportedly said that former South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg was too “gay” and too “short” to be a serious presidential contender during the midst of the 2020 presidential race.

Buttigieg, who ran for president in 2020 and surprisingly won the Iowa caucus, is now the Transportation Secretary under President-imposed Joe Biden. He is considered a rising star in the Democrat Party due to his homosexual lifestyle, which includes being gay married to a husband, but Obama is apparently a doubter.

Obama reportedly made his remarks while addressing a group of black Democrat donors in Oct. 2019 as he was attempting to exert his influence over the process. The revelation comes from a new book authored by The Hill’s Amie Parnes and NBC’s Jonathan Allen titled, Lucky: How Joe Biden Barely Won the Presidency.

At the time, Obama was apparently supporting Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for president. The excerpt from the book, which includes various pot shots made by Obama toward Buttigieg, reads as follows:

When he was asked to return to the original question on his advice, Obama said he liked Buttigieg, a rising talent who’d worked on his own campaign. But despite his affinity for the South Bend mayor, he rattled off a list of reasons why Buttigieg couldn’t win. 

“He’s thirty- eight,” Obama said, pausing for dramatic effect, “but he looks thirty.” The audience laughed. Obama was on a roll, using the tone of light ridicule he some-times pointed at himself — ” big ears” and “a funny name,” he’d said so many times before. Now, it was directed at Buttigieg. “He’s the mayor of a small town,” the former president continued. “He’s gay,” Obama said, “and he’s short.” More laughter. 

Only months earlier, Buttigieg had sat in Obama’s postpresidential office in Washington seeking counsel on how to maintain equanimity in the face of homophobia on the campaign trail. Now, behind his back, Obama was riffing on him to some of the wealthiest Black men in America at a time when Buttigieg had been dubbed “Mayo Pete” by critics who believed he couldn’t connect with African American voters.

It goes without saying that any conservative who made similar remarks would be pilloried by the fake news media. Obama will get a pass, although the comments may make the former president’s relationship with the former mayor strained as Buttigieg climbs up the political ladder undeservedly due solely to identity politics.
