California Senator Dianne Feinstein has been the Democratic Party’s gun-banningest liberalest whacko for decades. House candidate and socialist idiot Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been dubbed the face and the future of the Democratic Party. Barack Obama however thinks these two can go suck an egg. For the midterm elections the former president has endorsed almost every democrat running except Feinstein and Ocasio-Cortez. It must be because they are women.
Fox News reports:
Former President Barack Obama on Wednesday endorsed dozens of Democrats in races across the country, flexing his political muscle in the midterms and vowing to hit the stump for some of them before November.
Notably, the former president did not endorse liberal darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in her New York House race. The ‘democratic socialist’ has teamed up on the campaign trail with Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., but her high profile after defeating House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley in the primary has raised concerns in some corners of the party.
Obama, though, did not endorse Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., who is in a tight Democrat-vs.-Democrat race against Kevin de Leon in November.
Ouch. I kind of get Obama snubbing Ocasio-Cortez because she’s an embarrassment even to democrats, but Dianne Feinstein has been one of Obama’s biggest defenders and supporters. This is a straight-up dick move, but fairly consistent with Obama’s selective loyalty. “What have you done for me lately?”
In case you care (you don’t) Obama tweeted out a list of democrats he actually is endorsing:

I have no proof of this, but it wouldn’t be shocking if this list is identical to the people who donated money to Obama’s presidential library. Obama may be a piece of shit, but he is pretty loyal to big money donors as long as the cash keeps flowing.
While it’s pretty funny that Obama gave the cold shoulder to these two democratic women, his statement regarding the candidates he is endorsing is downright hilarious:
“I am proud to endorse such a wide and impressive array of Democratic candidates—leaders as diverse, patriotic, and big-hearted as the America they’re running to represent. I’m confident that, together, they’ll strengthen this country we love by restoring opportunity that’s broadly shared, repairing our alliances and standing in the world, and upholding our fundamental commitment to justice, fairness, responsibility and the rule of law,” said Obama.
These are democrats who believe ICE should be abolished, that losers are entitled to the money other people earn, and in racial quotas the benefit minorities. They have no commitment to justice, fairness, responsibility, or the rule of law. The only way this endorsement makes sense is if it’s Opposite Day. That of course would mean the Obama really endorses Feinstein and Ocasio-Cortez which is as confusing as democrats like things.
I don’t know if you noticed, but Obama got in some shots at President Trump in this ridiculous endorsement statement. He says these democrats will restore, “opportunity that’s broadly shared” and repair, “our alliances and standing in the world.” In other words, he’s saying under Trump that there is no opportunity and the world is against us. I guess Obama doesn’t follow the news because the economy is kicking ass and Trump is getting shit done all over the globe.
Ultimately, how much does an Obama endorsement even mean? He’s backing candidates in solid blue places where the democrat is going to win no matter what. How bold of him.
