President Joe Biden was joined by former President Barack Obama and key Democrats Tuesday who, after a signing event, demonstrated their favored executive as readily as schoolchildren around the popular kid, dismissing Biden to look the doddering old fool, discarded like yesterday’s news.
Obama had been invited to the White House as part of a collaboration with Biden’s administration to shore up key elements of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), better known as ObamaCare. Joined by prominent figures like Vice President Kamala Harris and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Obama required no effort to undermine the already compromised perception of Biden.
“Thank you, Vice President Biden,” Obama stated as he began his speech in the lead-up to the signing. He behaved as though he were going to move on before stopping and telling those in attendance, “that was a joke,” offering Biden a handshake and half-hug before properly addressing him.

That moment when Obama asserted command of the room was continually reinforced by Biden who appeared to be more of a spectator to the happening than the leader of the free world.

All of this was made worse by the fawning by Democrats over Obama as Biden was left as “the president of the United States in his own house, shunned. Nobody would talk to him,” as Fox News host Tucker Carlson put it.
“So Biden wandered off, looking vacant as a crowd formed around a former president, Barack Obama, who was obviously deeply grateful for the attention. And then it got worse,” Carlson explained, as Biden later tried to insinuate himself into the group.
Biden’s efforts were to no avail as, “Everyone involved in that conversation, including Kamala Harris, who supposedly works for Biden, ignored Biden completely. Biden desperately tried to get Obama’s attention. He puts his hand on Obama’s shoulder. He even calls him ‘Barack’ like they’re friends, but Obama blows him off. He acts like Biden is not even there. Ask yourself if you have ever in your life, seen anything sadder than that?” the Fox News host continued.
“It’s awful,” Carlson concluded.
To clarify just how awful, later Obama tweeted out a showing of support for Biden in what seemed like a cover for the deeply embarrassing light that the current president was displayed in. “Always great catching up with @POTUS,” Obama wrote. “Thanks for all you’re doing to help even more Americans get access to quality, affordable health care.”

There were online reactions to posted videos of the scene pointing out that the full clips had not been shown and things were not as bad as they seemed. But even in the few moments seen in multiple images, it was a sad picture of the president.
And the damage was already done. As Carlson later pointed out, “No one at the DNC actually cares about Joe Biden or ever has, or for that matter, cares about George Floyd or Greta Thunberg or David Hogg or anyone else they tell you is an irreplaceable hero.”
“All people are expendable…And of course, on some level, Joe Biden knows this,” the Fox News host stated before later adding, “He’s spent his life in the Democratic Party. He’s never worked outside of the Democratic Party, so he understands how this ends. Inevitably, after 50 years, it is his turn to be eliminated.”
Most votes in history.

I wonder if there is a single able-minded adult believe that.

Man, I know how it feels. You’re ok to hang till the cool kids come to the party. Then you couldn’t strike up a conversation with a curtain.

I honestly feel bad for him.

“Joe Biden,” as Carlson plainly put it, “is now the most unpopular person in virtually any room he enters.”
