The Democratic Party is in full panic mode as socialist Bernie Sanders continues to build momentum. In a haphazard frenzy of activity to stop Bernie, failed presidential candidates Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, and Beto O’Rourke endorsed Joe Biden just hours before Super Tuesday, where 1,357 delegates from 14 states are up for grabs.
Buttigieg — whom Biden derisively dismissed as an inexperienced small-town mayor — halfheartedly endorsed Joe, saying: “I’m looking for a president who will draw out what is best in each of us, and I’m encouraging everybody who was part of my campaign to join me because we have found that leader in Vice President — soon to be President — Joe Biden.”

Biden reacted by saying: “I don’t think I’ve ever done this before, but he reminds me of my son, Beau. I know that may not mean much to most people, but to me, it’s the highest compliment I can give any man or woman.”
Beau Biden died of a brain tumor in 2015. Joe has a younger son, Hunter Biden, who’s embroiled in several sleazy Ukraine scandals.

To those who love another beyond words: I’m not crying, YOU are

Biden was also joined on stage by former Texas Congressman Beto O’Rouke. “I will be casting my ballot for Joe Biden,” Beto said.
Meanwhile, Amy Klobuchar urged Democrats to stop their in-fighting and rally behind Biden or they will surely be crushed by President Trump.
“It is up to all of us to put our country back together, to heal this country, and then build something even greater,” Klobuchar said. “And that is why I am endorsing Joe Biden for president.”
An emotional Amy Klobuchar: "I cannot think of a better way to end my campaign than joining his."

Many observers believe that Buttigieg, Klobuchar, and Beto were pressured by the Democratic Party to endorse Biden ahead of Super Tuesday in order to halt Bernie’s monster momentum.
Just like they did in 2016, establishment Democrats are working behind the scenes to cut Bernie off at the knees. Many on the Left are terrified that having a socialist nominee will ensure an easy Trump reelection and have a disastrous effect on down-ballot races.

While Biden touted endorsements from “moderate Democrats,” Sanders had anti-American Congresswoman Ilhan Omar stumping for him in Virginia.
At the rally, Omar — who called living in the United States “an everyday assault” — danced to Somali music while endorsing a candidate for the American presidency.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson chuckled at the Democratic Party, who are rallying behind Biden in a panicked frenzy.
“They have found their war horse, a hero they imagine will carry them forth to victory against the wild-haired infidel from Vermont,” Carlson joked. “It is this candidate who is literally now the youngest man in the Democratic race. This is the man they believe has the competence, the intensity, the intellect to repel the seething horde of Sanders-ites. Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Joe Biden.”
Tucker is not a Bernie fan, but he’s disgusted that the Democratic Party is once again rigging their primary for a candidate that they can control.
“Running Joe Biden for president is like making your dog wear a dress. It may make for an amusing Instagram post, but it’s wrong. You can see the confusion in the dog’s eyes.
Today, both Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar endorsed Biden. So did former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Beto O’Rourke.
These are party people doing the bidding of their corporate masters. There’s nothing warm or sentimental about it. They’re pushing a defective product on consumers and they know it.”

Carlson said Democrats are terrified of socialist Bernie Sanders because he has real, grassroots support and therefore can’t be controlled by the Washington establishment like Biden can.
“The Democratic establishment’s only concern is institutional control,” Carlson said. “That’s where all of their power comes from. From holding together and running things.”
Tucker continued: “If the Democratic coalition breaks down, they are by definition powerless. They have nothing. And the real threat of Bernie Sanders is the threat he poses to the Party. He could split it in half and break it forever. Joe Biden is their last chance. That’s why they’re backing him.”
