Former Vice President Joe Biden entered the first Democrat debate as the definitive front-runner.
During the debate, Biden constantly referenced his time as Barack Obama’s Vice President.
But when it was all over, this top Obama ally went on TV and said something about Joe Biden that will leave your jaw on the ground.
Despite Biden trying to hug the Obama record in office, the debate was a disaster for the former Vice President.
And none other than David Axelrod – who served as Obama’s chief strategist – declared the Vice President a flop in the debate.
CNN senior political commentator and former Obama adviser David Axelrod said former Vice President Joe Biden appeared flummoxed during the second 2020 Democrat presidential debate on Thursday evening.
“I think it was a tougher night for the most seasoned candidates on the platform,” Axelrod said. “They seemed part of the past than the future. At times, the vice president seemed somewhat confused to me in handling some of the questions and following some of the action.”
“He seemed a bit defensive,” he added.
Biden had multiple bad moments during the debate.
California Senator Kamala Harris dismantled Biden during an exchange over Biden’s past comments about working with racist Democrat Senators.
Biden raised his hand to declare his support for not only allowing illegal aliens access to free taxpayer-funded healthcare, but also for decriminalizing illegal immigration.
That put Biden firmly in the camp of supporting open borders.
Biden was knocked off his front-runner status after the debate.
And his former allies in the Obama administration were the ones burying him on national television.
