Joe Biden claims a presidential power that, somehow, our Founders never added to the Constitution
It should by crystal clear by now why Obama isn’t backing this guy…

(TNS) If President Trump gaffed as much as Joe Biden does, practically every talking head on every cable news outlet would be in therapy, having lost their minds and ability to control their emotions.
In case you didn’t know it, presidents have the authority to appoint U.S. senators. Well, they do in Joe’s world, apparently.
During an appearance at a very lightly attended campaign event in South Carolina, the former vice president promised to do something that, should he manage to stumble to a victory in November, presidents do not have the constitutional authority to do.
“I’m looking forward to appointing the first African American woman to the United States Senate,” Biden pledged.
“I’m looking forward to appointing the first African American woman to the United States Senate.”

Not hardly, Joe. Presidents don’t appoint senators. If one needs to be appointed, as was the case recently, for instance, after the passing of long-serving Sen. John McCain of Arizona, that task falls to the states.
It could be that Biden meant the U.S. Supreme Court, but his audience was lapping up the pandering and started clapping before they heard his complete sentence.
And anyway, Carol Moseley Braun was the first black woman elected to the Senate. More recently, Kamala Harris won a seat, too.
Remember, also, that Democrats are trying to stop a socialist/communist takeover of their party with this guy.
It should by crystal clear by now why Biden’s former running mate, President Obama, has not come out in full-throated support of him.
Someone should stick a fork in Crazy Uncle Joe. He’s done, even if he doesn’t realize it yet.
