Obama Makes Thinly Veiled Reference to Crazy ‘Uncle Joe’ in Speech

'They’re part of the family, but you don’t give them serious responsibilities... '

(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) In a thinly veiled reference to President Joe Biden, former President Barack Obama once more blasted his Democrat successor, this time claiming that he is unfit to handle responsibility.

Obama made the comments while campaigning for Democrat Georgia Sen. Raphael Warnock earlier this week, Valiant News reported.

“We all know some folks in our lives, who we don’t wish them ill will. They say crazy stuff and we’re all like, ‘Well, Uncle Joe, you know what happened to him,’” Obama stated, drawing applause and laughter from his audience.

He continued to say that his “Uncle Joe” character cannot be trusted with anything of import.

“They’re part of the family, but you don’t give them serious responsibilities,” the former president added.

The slap was far from the first time the Obama family has taken shots at sleepy Joe. In 2019, the former president said Joe Biden is not a winner.

“And you know who really doesn’t have it? Joe Biden,” alluding to the strong likelihood that Biden would lost to Trump in 2020 because he could not woe voters.

In recent weeks, there has also been speculation that Barack’s wife and former first lady Michelle Obama could try to primary Biden in 2024.

Earlier this year she claimed that the nation was headed in a dark direction under Biden’s leadership.

“Protecting and expanding our democracy is the best and only path out of this mess,” Obama said during her keynote address at the Los Angeles summit of a national voting organization she helped create.

“Our democracy is fading,” she continued. “Sometimes it’s just easier to look away.”

Notably, she later refused to endorse Biden in a potential 2024 run.

“I think he’s doing a great job. This is a hard job,” Obama said. “I think that he’s doing the best he can under some tough circumstances.”
