Trump Nightmare? Obama Joins Democratic Effort In 2020 | The Beat With Ari Melber | MSNBC 1


As the Democratic primary narrows to a two-person race, there are new clues that President Obama is getting more involved behind the scenes — while avoiding any formal endorsement. MSNBC's Ari Melber reports on how Obama is engaging, from talking to Pete Buttigieg before he endorsed Biden to huddling with longtime advisers, leading some Democrats to ponder how much Obama could become a factor in the 2020 race against President Trump. Steve Phillips, host of “Democracy in Color” podcast, discusses Obama’s influence on the 2020 race, arguing “Biden doesn’t really need Obama’s endorsement any more than he already has it” as he “was the vice president to the first black president of this country.” (This interview is from MSNBC’s “The Beat with Ari Melber, a news show covering politics, law and culture airing nightly at 6pm ET on MSNBC. ). Aired on 3/5/2020.

    Obama is a Great American.
    Trump is SO bad we were forced to Impeach him.

    • @Legend Bartlett yeah about what we have no idea

    • Harold Moore | March 5, 2020 at 9:52 PM | Reply

      Maddvp24 lmao that’s why he tried to give the people healthcare? I see what you tried to do but it didn’t work. How many time Obama got impeached?🤣🤣🤣 you are a whole clown.

    • @Legend Bartlett is that why his created a healthcare program that cost 37 million people their healthcare and had to spread lies about saving money

    • Legend Bartlett | March 5, 2020 at 9:54 PM | Reply

    • Legend Bartlett | March 5, 2020 at 9:54 PM | Reply

      @snoop alert trumps spread multiple lies unlike Obama who wasn’t impeached

  2. Obama has more influence on elections as an ex-president than Trump has as a current president. Speaks volumes…

  3. My REAL President Barack Obama 👍🏾✊🏾💪🏾

    • @Joseph Kasten Libtart? Is that anything like a PopTart?

    • @Joseph Kasten 👈🏾 MAGA hoax racist wacko still butt hurt cuz Trumprick will never be loved and admired like my REAL President Barack Obama . . NEVER. .

    • @Joe Rubio He’s so loved and did such a good job killing children that everyone who voted for him in the democratic states like PA,MI,WI voted for TRUMP in a landslide. SAD

    • @PewDie Pie MAGA goo goo boo hoo 👶🍼😭 MAGA supremacist are gun-ho for war but don’t want people to die😪 sniff, sniff. HYPOCRITES

  4. Obama Was Pro medicare for all in his most recent speech, “We have new good ideas like medicare for all”

  5. In Texas on super Tuesday the Democrats voting turn out was over 2 million voters than the Republicans turn out.

    • Oba*** Man It was much smaller than that but Trumps numbers were still higher than Biden, Warren, and Sanders combined. Look it up. Democrats have no chance at winning Texas.

    • Timothy Kozlowski | March 5, 2020 at 9:16 PM | Reply

      Can you possibly lie even more.

    • JoeyFiveandDimes | March 5, 2020 at 9:23 PM | Reply

      Oba*** Man …….. Republican ratfucking to vote for Biden – the Designated Loser . No need for them to vote Repuke with trump the only one .

  6. If that happened, Trump would immediately announce that Putin is officially joining his campaign.

    Obama.s beautiful spirit …is being missed so much! He has the desire to show his comedic side and”live a serious side too another side Of Obama is his peaceful and authentic desire to serve the people…all the people!

    Let’s save 68,000 lives a year.
    Let’s save $450 billion a year.
    Medicare for all Americans
    Because we can!

    • MyrnaMinkoff | March 5, 2020 at 9:40 PM | Reply

      @98LowDown Saving 68,000 people a year is wasteful? You are saying that the 68,000 people should just die already?

    • Yes we can!

    • Stuart nevins | March 5, 2020 at 9:51 PM | Reply

      Your tax rate will be at least 50 percent. If you make 10 dollars an hour you will get five before other taxes are taken out. But you will have free access to the dmv/va run health care that is horrible. I’ve been to the doctor once in ten years I’m not with it.

  9. Ohh how we miss the Obama’s

  10. Comparing trump to President Obama is like comparing a kindergarten child to a law professor.

    • @RocketBot Trump has done more in 3 years then Obama has done in his entire career. Obama literally did nothing besides go on talk shows and sell out the presidential office to the highest bidder.

    • @Marilyn Reallon There were two recessions under Obama’s administration try again lmao

    • Mark Allen, or comparing a criminal to an upstanding person

    • Richard Hayduk | March 5, 2020 at 9:49 PM | Reply

      Sean Bailey, why have you decided to live a life of denial?

    • @Saynoto Socialists Wow, can you be more ignorant than you already are? Who/when/where was it said regarding Obama, and the Messiah? Trump is so jealous of him. How many people in Obama’s administration were indicted or sent to prison? With Trump, the numbers keep going up of indictments and people going to prison. Obama has the love and respect of all ages, of people who are white/brown/black. With Trump, it’s white people . For 12 straight years in a row Obama, has been the most admired man in America! Trump, will never ever achieve what Obama has achieved as still is achieving!! You’re what Trump has said about his supporters,” I love the poorly educated”. Do your due diligence before you embarrass yourself again sweetie🤷.

    Oh my God I would love to see Obama on the campaign trail again. Just to hear his intelligent voice speaking in complete sentences. His gracious, presence, intellect, intelligence, and charisma would be greatly refreshing to have out there

  12. MSNBC trying to make it look like Obama is endorsing Biden. pathetic.

  13. When younger voters are voting for Bernie at a much higher rate, even if he loses the primary it shows that he’s ideas would live on far beyond his life

    • The polls says you’re lying.

    • Anne Rodgers | March 5, 2020 at 9:48 PM | Reply

      Independent The problem with Bernie and his ideas are two fold: His constituents are young, and didn’t make it to the polls. His ideas are expensive, and we would have to pay for them. Case Closed.

    • @John C You’re in a vegetative state right now John. I’m so sad for you.

    • whatthebleepisgoingon bleep | March 5, 2020 at 9:54 PM | Reply

      EVERYONE needs to get out and vote or bernie wotn be on the ticket in nov. Biden got a lot votes all the BOOMERS are handing biden a ticket.

    • Bernie’s ideas with only last as long as long as the taxpayers money last as far as the young people voting for him the only reason why they are is because he wants to give them free stuff

  14. Obama: A decent human being with integrity, common sense and empathy .
    trump: trump .

  15. Barney Potter | March 5, 2020 at 9:39 PM | Reply

    Can you remember even one thing Bidden did for us besides run errands for borack

  16. Vote to Count | March 5, 2020 at 9:44 PM | Reply

    Joe Biden won, SC, NC, Virginia, Alabama, OK, TN, AR, MN, MA,TX 
    Bloomberg won American Samoa,

  17. Australia loves Bernie ❤️

    Calling Sanders a liar, whether he talks to Obama or not? Ari is the liar now
