Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden weighed-in Thursday on this week’s presidential debates; admitting he was “a little bit surprised” at his own party’s attacks on former President Barack Obama.
“I was a little surprised how much the incoming was about Barack, about the President. I mean I’m proud of having served with him, I’m proud of the job he did. I don’t think there’s anything he has to apologize for,” said Biden.

Most Democratic presidential candidates are now publicly embracing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ once-radical agenda; backing the ‘Green New Deal,’ Medicare for All, and other far-left proposals considered politically impossible just years ago.
“A year after the former bartender shot to prominence with an upset primary win over establishment Democrat Joe Crowley, many of her hard-left campaign planks are now gospel among top 2020 hopefuls,” reports Fox News.
“We must have and adopt a Green New Deal,” Sen. Kamala Harris said during Wednesday night’s debate.
“Further, Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., backs a federal jobs guarantee, another plank that AOC’s campaign site endorsed on the basis that ‘anyone who is willing and able to work shouldn’t struggle to find employment,’” adds Fox.
BIDEN BACKLASH: Kamala Harris Now NECK-AND-NECK with Joe Biden in Latest Polls
Senator Kamala Harris is quickly capitalizing off last week’s Democratic debate, with new data showing the California lawmaker is now in a virtual tie with former Vice President and frontrunner Joe Biden.
“Sen. Kamala Harris of California has catapulted into a virtual tie with former Vice President Joe Biden in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination — and she’s made significant inroads with black voters — following her widely praised debate performance last week, a new national poll released Tuesday showed,” reports NBC News.
“The latest Quinnipiac University poll of Democratic and Democratic-leaning voters showed Biden with 22 percent support and Harris with 20 percent — a double-digit jump for her since the university’s previous poll last month,” adds the survey.
President Trump weighed-in Tuesday on the 2020 Democratic presidential primary; saying the “Crew” looks “easier to debate” than his 2016 opponent Hillary Clinton.
“As most people are aware, according to the Polls, I won EVERY debate, including the three with Crooked Hillary Clinton, despite the fact that in the first debate, they modulated the sound on me, and got caught. This crew looks somewhat easier than Crooked, but you never know?” posted the Commander-in-Chief on social media.

Senator Lindsey Graham unloaded on the Democratic Party following last week’s disastrous presidential debates; saying it’s sad that the Mexican government is more willing to work with President Trump on immigration than his own opposition.
“The immigration debate is turning into complete slander against the brave men and women serving our nation on the border. It’s sad that the Mexican government is more willing to work with President Trump than the Democrats are,” posted Graham on social media.

“Two nights in this is becoming @realDonaldTrump’s election to lose. Democrats are on the path to making Trump look like George Washington. The more they talk, the better he looks,” he added.
BIDEN’S BEDTIME? ‘Sleepy Joe’ Stumbles Through Rambling Speech, Stops to Ask ‘What Am I Doing?’
Democratic Frontrunner Joe Biden surprised his supporters during an unusual speech this week; stumbling through his prepared remarks and ultimately asking “What am I doing?” before exiting the stage.
“I would uhhhh, remind the world that we are the United States of America… They’ll be no more Charlottesville, no more Helsinki,” said Biden. “Donald Trump and the democrogs— demagogues around the world are learn— leaning into these forces.”
“We believe in free speech, that’s why I’ll end the global gag rule… What am I doing?” he asked.
The former Vice President’s poll numbers have dropped in recent weeks after the first Democrat debates in Miami.
“The NBC News/Wall Street Journal survey found that 26 percent of likely primary voters support Biden, while 19 percent support Warren. Trailing those two are Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Bernie Sanders(I-Vt.), who are each backed by 13 percent,” reports The Hill.
“The only other contenders who receive support from more than 1 percent of voters are South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg with 7 percent, former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke with 2 percent and former tech executive Andrew Yang with 2 percent,” adds the site.
Warren introduced a new plan this week that would essentially “decriminalize” those caught illegally entering the United States; raising serious new questions over the Democrat’s immigration policy heading into the 2020 election.
“Entering the country without authorization has always been a violation of civil immigration law, but thanks to a former segregationist Senator, it’s also a criminal violation. This additional criminal provision is totally unnecessary for border security, and for a century, it was rarely enforced. But since the early 2000s, it has been used to build and sustain a massive immigration detention complex,” writes Warren in an op-ed published by Medium.
“In 2016, over half of all federal criminal prosecutions were for immigration violations — more than prosecutions for terrorism, organized crime, hate crimes, or financial fraud. This obsessive focus ties up federal prosecutors and overwhelms federal courts. It’s costly and unnecessary. And under Trump, it has become increasingly abusive,” she adds.
