Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden demanded William Barr resign from the Department of Justice in previous days following his handling of the Mueller report; conveniently forgetting his public praise of the Attorney General back in the 1990s.
According to CBS News, Biden applauded Barr’s time at the DOJ back in 1995; adding “you were one of the best I have ever worked with.”
“As I know you know, but others should know, too, I truly enjoyed working with you when you were attorney general,” Biden told Barr, who was President George H.W. Bush’s attorney general. “You were one of the best I have ever worked with, and there have been a lot of attorneys general since I have been here, and I mean that sincerely.”

Biden has apparently changed his mind; calling for the removal of Barr just weeks ago.
“Should AG Barr resign?” asked a reporter in Des Moines, Iowa.
“I think he’s lost the confidence of the American people. I think he should,” fired-back Biden.
Biden was mocked on both sides of the political aisle last weekend; with pundits pointing out his “lackluster” schedule and his ongoing “bromance” with Barack Obama.
“Joe Biden found himself mocked over the weekend for his corny effort to tie himself to former President Barack Obama, while also coming under criticism from other presidential candidates for skipping the biggest Iowa campaign event of the cycle so far,” reports Fox News.
Biden marked ‘Best Friends Day’ last Friday by posting a pair of “friendship bracelets” donning both their names.
“This is a joke, right?” asked former senior presidential advisor David Axelrod.
This is a joke, right?

“It turns out, the bracelet itself was: BuzzFeed produced a sympathetic and playful video in 2016 of Obama encouraging people to register to vote, showing the president jokingly making the bracelet,” adds Fox.
Nearly 20 Democratic candidates descended on Iowa over the weekend to speak at party fundraiser. Notably absent from the event? Joe Biden.
“When I saw the program for today, I thought the same thing you all did, which is this: Joe Biden must really not like to travel,” said entrepreneur Andrew Yang, a Democratic candidate.
Biden claims he skipped the event to attend the graduation of his granddaughter.

BIDEN REBUKED: AOC Says Biden Presidency Would be ‘Going Back,’ Vows ‘To Go Forward’
Democratic superstar Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez refused to back former Vice President Joe Biden’s potential presidential run over the weekend; saying the top Obama aide’s win would be “going back” while she hopes to “move forward.”
Ocasio-Cortez was speaking with Yahoo News podcast ‘Skullduggery’ Sunday when she was asked to comment on Biden’s long-rumored White House bid.
That does not particularly animate right now,” said the Congresswoman.
“I can understand why people would be excited by that, this idea that we can go back to the good old days with Obama, with Obama’s vice president. There’s an emotional element to that, but I don’t want to go back. I want to go forward,” she added.
Recent Democrat polling shows Biden slowly losing momentum among supporters, with Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders taking the top spot in the latest surveys.

BERNIE IN TROUBLE? Joe Biden Opens a MASSIVE 24 POINT LEAD Over Bernie Sanders
Former Vice President Joe Biden solidified his standing as the Democratic frontrunner Tuesday; opening a whopping 24 point advantage over Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in recent polling.
According to the new survey, Biden jumped 11 points since announcing his run for the White House last Thursday, with 39% of likely Democratic voters supporting the former Vice President followed by Sanders at 15%.
“Biden’s strength in the polls is driven by his broad support from African Americans. Biden has 43 percent support from black voters, according to Morning Consult. Sanders is at 20 percent here, followed by Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) at 10 percent,” reports The Hill.
Biden spoke at his first campaign rally in Pennsylvania Monday; labeling his run for the White House as a “battle for the soul of the nation.”
