Vanity Fair is out with an amusing report regarding top 2020 contenders for the Democrat nomination that should leave likely top pick and former Vice President Joe Biden a tad flummoxed. According to Vanity Fair, Biden is miffed over the budding “bromance” between former President Barack Obama and upstart Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, who is already being hailed by reliable leftists as the next Obama despite failing to defeat Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) in the November midterm elections. Biden spokesman Bill Russo has already countered the claim, calling it “unequivocally false,” but we do know the chip on Biden’s shoulder was already quite heavy after being passed over in the last go-round to make room for Hillary. He’s sure to fight tooth and nail to prevent losing his rightful place as heir apparent a second time.
Here’s more from Breitbart…
Vanity Fair said, “Obamaworld insiders describe the former vice president as upset” with Obama’s attention to other Democrat contenders for 2020.
“This is unequivocally false. Period,” Biden spokesman Bill Russo told the magazine. When asked how he does feel, Russo declined to comment further. It might sound a bit thin, but that is because it is little more than rumor from unidentified associates.
But fear not; there are rumors which are every bit as vague about the President’s presumed feelings about Biden, credited to “a person familiar with the ex-president’s thinking.” They claim he is simply unwilling to take sides so early in the game, after the way the road was cleared for Hillary in 2016 despite her unpopularity.
