President Obama Finally Endorses Joe Biden in Divisive Speech (VIDEO)

After months of speculation, President Barack Obama has finally endorsed his former Vice President Joe Biden in his bid for the White House.

In an excruciatingly long 12-minute endorsement, the 44th President says that making Biden his “vice president was one of the best decisions I ever made” and that he “has all the qualities we need in a president right now.”

Obama attempts to make Biden more relatable by talking about him losing his job half a century ago and coining the catchphrase “Joe gets stuff done.” He continued,

“Joe helped me manage H1N1 and prevent the Ebola pandemic from becoming the type of pandemic we’re seeing now… He helped me restore America’s standing and leadership in the world… Joe has the character and experience to guide us through one of our darkest times.”

Obama paid tribute to Bernie Sanders, who endorsed Biden yesterday saying, “Bernie’s an American original — a man who has devoted his life to giving voice to working people’s hopes, dreams, and frustrations.”

He tried to reassure Bernie’s socialist base saying, “Joe already has what is the most progressive platform of any major party nominee in modern history.”

And Obama relentlessly attacked Republicans saying,

“One thing everybody has learned by now is that the Republicans occupying the White House and running the US Senate are not interested in progress. They’re interested in power… They’ve given polluters unlimited power to poison our air and our water… The other side has a massive warchest. The other side has a propaganda network with little regard for the truth.”

Joe Biden thanked his former boss on social media writing,

“Barack — This endorsement means the world to Jill and me. We’re going to build on the progress we made together, and there’s no one I’d rather have standing by my side.”

There may have been only one thing he said that I can agree with: “Our country’s future hangs on this election.”
