A week after President Trump’s inauguration in a post titled “Barack Who?” I joked that Trump had already erased much of Barack Obama’s so-called “Legacy.”
But it look like Mr. Trump has erased more than that. He’s also erased the memory of Obama’s own supporters.
Yesterday on Twitter, some anti-Trumper decided to “well-oh-yeah?!” over President Trump overruling the Department of Justice’s position not to pursue the citizenship question on the census.
When someone pointed out that the DOJ works for the Executive Branch and the President is the Chief Executive, the anti-Trumper huffily replied:
I’m sure you’ll be fine when the Dems get the WH and behave in the same exact way. Where the AG and DOJ do the President’s bidding. You’ll love it.— Random Citizen (@shy924) July 6, 2019
Where was this fellow between 2009 and 2017?
Was he in a coma during the Obama years?
Or is it that President Trump has completely erased any memory of the Obama presidency?
Clearly President Trump has been so successful at erasing Obama, even Democrats forgot the guy.— Dianny ??(@DiannyRants) July 6, 2019
But it isn’t just a “random citizen” on Twitter for whom the Obama years have been erased.
Apparently Barack’s own Vice President forgot all about the Obama years as well.
Which is a shock since every fourth word out of Biden’s mouth is “Barack.”
But this is the power of President Trump. He has so effectively erased the Obama presidency that even Joe Biden forgot him.
Though, to be fair to Joe, Obama’s “legacy” wasn’t exactly carved in granite. It was more or less inscribed on an Etch-a-Sketch.
As I pointed out in 2017, along comes Donald Trump who gives it one good shake, and the Obama years are erased like they were never there.
Which might explain why, in an interview Friday with CNN’s resident doofus Chris Cuomo, Biden blamed President Trump for letting Russia interfere with our election in 2016.
“You think that would happen on my watch, on Barack’s watch?” Joe said forcefully. “You can’t answer that, but I promise you it wouldn’t have. And it didn’t.”
Not to pick nits, but if the Russians interfered in the 2016 election, they did it on your watch, on Barack’s watch.
Now, it’s possible that Joe is just being Joe.
His singular ability to talk without thinking is unmatched by anyone – including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Like when he said in the debate that the first thing he’ll do when he becomes President is defeat Donald Trump.
But still. This guy was Vice President of the United States during the Obama years. And despite that, Joe Biden appears to have plum forgotten the Obama presidency even existed.
Is this Biden being an idiot and a liar?
Or is it that Trump is such an effective, formidable President that he even erased Obama’s presidency from the albeit addled memory of Obama’s own VP?
But if Trump has erased the Obama years, Joe might want to rethink his heavy reliance on talking about his good friend Barack.
