Sounds like Barack Obama is getting pretty nervous.
After the whole Flynn case blew up, Democrats have been desperately spinning, knowing that the investigation into this can hit at the top. We see the Jan. 5 meeting with Obama and Biden about Flynn, and the Biden request for unmasking and now people are starting to ask that fateful question, “What did Obama and Biden know and when did they know it.”
It even prompted an Obama “chat” with his former officials to “leak” a phone call to Yahoo’s Michael Isikoff, the same person who was leaked to about Carter Page.
In the call, Obama tried to spin and deflect away from what his administration had done, claiming that the “rule of law was at risk” because of the action to dismiss the charges against Gen. Michael Flynn by the Department of Justice, that there was no precedent for the action. But he got ripped for obviously being behind the leak. Jonathan Turley ripped him apart showing how wrong he was and how he himself had done something similar.
Bottom line? Someone broke the law leaking to The Washington Post to undermine Flynn and the Trump team and not the light is finally being put on it.
Obama gave a virtual commencement speech for high school students as part of a “Graduate Together” program put on by LeBron James. He also gave a virtual commencement speech to students at historically black colleges.
It was clear that Trump was living rent free in his mind when he couldn’t even give a speech to the two groups without trying to take a left-handed slap at him, albeit without his name on it. But indeed, it was really an indictment of his own actions, a brilliant self-own and hit on Joe Biden.
“Do what you think is right,” he told the high school kids. “Doing what feels good, what’s convenient, what’s easy, that’s how little kids think. Unfortunately, a lot of so-called grown-ups, including some with fancy titles and important jobs, still think that way, which is why things are so screwed up.”

“All those adults that you used to think were in charge and knew what they were doing — turns out they don’t have all the answers. A lot of them aren’t even asking the right questions.”

Exactly. What a perfect description of both himself and Biden.
During the college commencement, he accused “the folks in charge” of not knowing what they’re doing.
“More than anything, this pandemic has fully, finally torn back the curtain on the idea that so many of the folks in charge know what they’re doing,” Obama claimed. “A lot of them aren’t even pretending to be in charge.”
Well, we’d disagree slightly here. Biden is pretending to be in charge. Badly. But it’s pretty clear he has no idea what’s going on and that at every turn he was wrong
After initially attacking Trump’s travel ban on China, credited with saving countless lives, Biden has now decided he supports the ban after all. On April 5, Biden called on President Trump to invoke the Defense Production Act; seemingly unaware that Trump had already invoked the Defense Production Act on numerous occasions, the first time back on March 18th. Biden also can’t remember who briefs him on the coronavirus every day, which state he’s in, which woman is his wife and which one is his sister, when the camera is on, and the second half of many sentences the candidate never finishes.
With Obama stepping up the attack, you can tell he’s worried.
