Barack Obama Says He Had To Campaign for Biden Because Trump’s Presidency ‘Was Not Normal’

Share on Facebook

In his latest interview, Barack Obama has once again ripped into Donald Trump, explaining why he didn’t want to hit the campaign trail.

Safe to say, there was no holding back…

And we all know that this isn’t exactly something that former presidents typically do!

And for a very big reason.

And he really hasn’t held back.

Just hours before calling Trump out for refusing to congratulate Biden, Obama caused a stir online for claiming Trump’s “election fraud” claims were phony. And it caused a giant reaction from both sides online.

Because as you will all be aware, the president suffered a colossal loss to his Democratic opponent, Joe Biden, for this year’s presidential election.

The evidence has shown that he has resorted to downright denying the election and its results.

As the counts went underway, he tried to temporarily stop vote-counting in Michigan and Pennsylvania, States where Joe Biden was projected to win.

And then went on to threaten legal action against any State wherein Biden had won.

The Associated Press called the race for Biden when Pennsylvania’s twenty electoral votes put him over the 270-vote threshold needed to win the Electoral College.

And remarkable footage of people cheering and celebrating from the streets of New York was quick to circulate.

Though the president is a historically sore loser – he’s very rarely had to admit defeat ever in his life – and has long made wild accusations against the Biden campaign team, people simply cannot believe his refusal to accept what has happened.

In which he accused Biden and his team of rigging the entire election. As per Sky News, the statement read: “We all know why Joe Biden is rushing to falsely pose as the winner, and why his media allies are trying so hard to help him: they don’t want the truth to be exposed. “The simple fact is this election is far from over. Joe Biden has not been certified as the winner of any states, let alone any of the highly contested states headed for mandatory recounts, or states where our campaign has valid and legitimate legal challenges that could determine the ultimate victor. “In Pennsylvania, for example, our legal observers were not permitted meaningful access to watch the counting process.  Legal votes decide who is president, not the news media.”

In his rage, Trump took to the social media platform to dispute the result further, insisting that he was the one to have won.

And proudly Tweeted that he received a record-breaking number of votes.

Trump seems set on the idea that Biden and his team rigged the entire election to play out in their favor, and made strong hints that something happened in the counting rooms that had “never happened before.”

Since the election win, the internet has been rife with people laughing at the childishness of Trump’s behavior and, of course, them dubbing him as a “sore loser.”

He is somehow determined to prove that there has been something fishy going on all throughout the elections. But will he have the support of the American people?

Reuters and Ipsos recently conducted a study in which they found out some pretty interesting facts and people have had mixed opinions, to say the least! So, according to the people they surveyed, only 3% of them think that Donald Trump won the election, while a whopping eighty percent of people who took part believe Biden won.

The results actually found a split between Republicans and Democrats, with approximately 6 in 10 Republicans seeing Biden as the winner, compared to almost every single Democrat seeing Biden as the new president.

In which seventy-two percent of the 1,363 US adults that took part answered “yes.”

The former president decided to speak out on the current issue of “voter fraud” during an interview with 60 Minutes in which he told Scott Pelley that he’s deeply troubled by Republicans that believe Trump.

He emphasized that it was concerning that they would go along with his unfounded claims of election fraud, putting democracy on a “dangerous path.”

“I’m more troubled by the fact that other Republican officials who clearly know better are going along with this, are humoring him in this fashion. It is one more step in delegitimizing not just the incoming Biden administration, but democracy generally. And that’s a dangerous path.”

This time Obama addressed Trump’s lack of congratulations to Biden following his win.

Speaking on CBS This Morning, Obama reminded viewers that he had congratulated Trump as soon as he won the election.

But so far there’s be none of the same from Donald Trump, but just what exactly did Obama say?

“When Donald Trump won, I stayed up until 2:30 in the morning and I then called Donald Trump to congratulate him. His margin of victory over Hillary Clinton wasn’t greater than Joe Biden’s margin over him. “But if you are listening to some of the talk radio that Trump voters are listening to, if you’re watching Fox News, if you’re getting these tweets, those allegations are presented as facts. “So you’ve got millions of people out there who think, ‘Oh yeah, there must be cheating because the president said so.'”

But rather that he had to take part because Trump’s presidency “was not normal.” More specifically he said:
“I think we were in a circumstance in this election in which certain norms, certain institutional values that are so extraordinarily important, had been breached – that it was important for me, as somebody who had served in that office, to simply let people know, ‘This is not normal.’ “It’s very hard for our democracy to function if we are operating on just completely different sets of facts.”
