White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki revealed someone who is secretly calling the shots in Joe Biden’s White House.
Psaki, during a White House press briefing revealed that Joe Biden is in “regular” contact with former President Barack Obama to get “advice” on a wide range of issues.
One reported posed the question: “President Obama is taking part, I think within the next hour, in an event with Protect Our Care, talking about the Affordable Care Act. Has — has he — the question is: Has he visited the White House yet? Or, indeed, are there any — do you know how often he has spoken to President Biden? And are there any plans for him to take part in advocacy at administration events going forward?
Psaki answered, “Well, I will say, having a unique view of this question, they are not just — they were not just the President and Vice President; they are friends, and they consult and talk about a range of issues. And, you know, I would expect that continues through the course of President Biden’s presidency.”
“That can be done over the phone, it turns out. And I don’t — I think if President Obama had been here, you would all know; he’s a recognizable figure. But I expect, given former President Obama’s work on the Affordable Care Act, President Biden’s commitment to expanding access to healthcare throughout his presidency, that, you know, it’s an issue they’ll talk about. But in terms of what he’ll be involved in, I would point you to his team. Eric Schultz — I can give you his phone number if you need it.”
The reporter then posed another question, “Do you know how many times they’ve spoken since Inauguration Day?”
Psaki responded with, “I don’t have an exact number for you. You know, they keep in regular touch and our teams are in regular touch about a range of issues.”
Some are speculating that the former President Obama may be calling the shots behind current President Joe Biden’s administration.
Part of that speculation comes from a quote Obama gave during an interview with Stephen Colbert about how he could extend his power beyond the legal 8 year limit.
Obama said, “I used to say if I can make an arrangement where I had a stand-in or front-man or front-woman and they had an earpiece in and I was just in my basement in my sweats looking through the stuff and I could sort of deliver the lines while someone was doing all the talking and ceremony, I’d be fine with that because I found the work fascinating.”
And now, with Biden looking as fragile as ever, Obama’s dreams of ruling the country for another four years may in fact be a reality.
Biden isn’t helping his own case either, after referring to Vice President Kamala Harris as “President Harris” and falling multiple times while attempting to walk up the steps of Air Force One – another potential sign of cognitive decline.
Dr. Ronny Jackson, who served as the White House physician to former Presidents Obama and Donald Trump, sounded the alarm on Sunday about Biden, suggesting “something’s not right” with him following the fall.
“I served as White House physician under THREE Presidents,” Jackson said in a tweet. “I’ve seen what it takes physically AND mentally to do the job. I can tell you right now that the way Biden is hiding from the public is a MAJOR red flag. Something’s not right!”
Dr. Mark Siegel also questioned Biden’s mental capacity while speaking to Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Friday.
“…could it be a gait problem related to a cognitive problem? I think the American people have the right to know the answer to that. And you know, when I was down at the White House, and you sent me down there in July, President Trump brought up this issue of sharpness, of cognition, as being necessary for a president… But what about the real question about cognition about sharpness to be president? And I think that that’s an issue of great concern here.”
“And I’m not his doctor, and I’ve never examined him, but I’m not the only one that’s raising this question about him not having press conferences, about how just yesterday he was calling Vice President Harris, ‘President Harris,’ I mean, that he’s done that several times,” Siegel added. “That could be a Freudian slip. Or it could be something worse, something neurologic, something cognitive.”
