Joe Biden Claims Russian Interference Wouldn’t Have Happened ‘On My Watch and Barack’s Watch’
Former Vice President Joe Biden is falling like a stone in the polls. Although he is still the front-runner to be the Democratic contender against President Donald Trump in 2020, he is quickly losing luster from being Barack Obama’s Vice President.
Biden is also showing signs that his mental faculties are not what they used to be. He claimed in a recent CNN interview that Russian electoral interference wouldn’t have occurred if he and Obama were in charge.
The only problem is they were in charge when the supposed Russian electoral interference happened, which, according to popular Democratic Party conspiracy theories, is the reason why President Donald Trump is in the Oval Office right now.
“Look at what’s happening with Putin. While Putin is trying to undo our elections, he is undoing elections in Europe. Look at what’s happening in Hungary, look what’s happening in Poland, look what’s happening,” Biden told CNN.
“You think that would happen on my watch or Barack’s watch? You can’t answer that, but I promise it wouldn’t have, and it didn’t,” he added.
Obama was caught on a hot mic showing how little he thought of the Russian threat in 2012, while facing off against globalist Republican Presidential contender Mitt Romney hoping to attain re-election.
He told outgoing Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that he would have “more flexibility” to give Russia what they wanted when his presidential campaign was concluded. Republicans seized upon this at the time, although the now-Russophobic mainstream media mostly let it slide.
“This is no time for our president to be pulling his punches with the American people,” Romney said, calling Obama’s remarks “alarming and troubling.”
Attorney General Bill Barr also pointed out how the Obama administration largely ignored a credible Russian threat in the lead up to the 2016 presidential election.
“Bob Mueller did some impressive work in his investigation, you know, identifying some of the Russian hackers and their influence campaign and you sort of wonder if that kind of work had been done starting in 2016, things could have been a lot different,” Barr told CBS News.
“I’m wondering what, exactly, was the response to it if they were alarmed. Surely the response should have been more than just, you know, dangling a confidential informant in front of a peripheral player in the Trump campaign,” Barr added.
So contrary to Biden’s assertion, the Russian electoral interference did take place under the Obama administration’s watch (if it even happened at all). Biden’s gaffes may ultimately doom his chances to be the Democrats’ choice in 2020, with rising contenders like Sens. Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren (D-MA) and Kamala Harris (D-CA) already nipping at his heels in the polls.
