The Obamas have been quietly making moves behind the scenes and waiting for the right time to go after President Donald Trump. But with 25 Democrats running for president, the former first family is apparently having a hard time picking one candidate to endorse.
While speaking with CBS host Gayle King over the weekend at the Essence Festival in New Orleans, former First Lady Michelle Obama said she and her husband, former President Barack Obama, are not ready to support a candidate.
Consider that: Joe Biden served as the vice president under Obama for eight years. And yet, the Obamas are refusing to endorse him for president and could potentially support another candidate.
That speaks volumes.
The former first lady told the crowd on Saturday that the Obamas would support “whoever wins the primary.”
“Our primary focus is letting the primary process play out because it’s very early,” Obama began.
“I mean that’s one of the things that we learned in the campaign. It is early. It’s like trying to figure out who is going to win the World Series on the first seven games, I mean that’s where we are right now. It is so early and things will change,” she added.
Later in the event, Obama also made it clear that the former first family may not endorse Biden at all.
Obama refused to comment on the Kamala Harris-Joe Biden “dust up” during the first Democratic primary debate late last month.
Biden came under fire for praising his work in the U.S. Senate with segregationists in Congress during the 1970s and his position on government mandated busing.
Harris took Biden to the woodshed over this during the debate two weeks ago, which resulted in Biden issuing an apology over the weekend.
Obama deflected when asked about this and refused to say one nice word about Biden or defend his character.
“I’ve been doing this rodeo far too long,” Obama said. “And no comment.”

Biden’s 2020 campaign has not gotten off to the best start.
Before that, Biden was accused by at least four women in recent months of inappropriately touching them without their consent.
Caitlyn Caruso and D. J. Hill both recalled their experiences with Biden touching them inappropriately and making them feel uncomfortable.
Caruso said Biden rested his hand on her thigh even as she tried to squirm in her seat to signal that she was uncomfortable.
Hill recalled an incident with Biden in 2012, claiming that the then-vice president placed his hand on her shoulder and began to run it down her back, which she said made her “very uncomfortable.”
Former Nevada state lawmaker Lucy Flores published a column and accused Biden of grabbing her shoulders, smelling her hair, and kissing her head without consent at a 2014 campaign event.
Amy Lappos, a former congressional aide to Connecticut Democratic Rep. Jim Himes, claimed that during a fundraising event in 2009, Biden grabbed her head and pulled her in close to rub noses.
Biden’s behavior is so bad that even the mainstream media criticized him after he disgustingly had his hands all over a 10-year-old girl during a campaign stop.
Needless to say, he has certainly made it clear why some call him “Creepy Joe.”
Despite all of this, the former VP is still the Democratic frontrunner and darling of the Left.
Biden was the vice president in Obama’s administration for eight years. It speaks volumes that the Obamas have refused to endorse him or issue any public statement defending his character.
