Obama Grows ‘Increasingly Anxious’ About 2020 Election, Considers Intervening: Report

A new report says former President Barack Obama is concerned about the recent momentum of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, a candidate for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

In recent weeks, the democratic socialist has put some distance between himself and the third-place candidate, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, in most national polls.

The results of a CNN poll released Wednesday showed Sanders in first place nationwide, overtaking former Vice President Joe Biden. Sanders garnered 27 percent in the poll, compared with 24 percent for Biden.

Biden is still leading in the RealClearPolitics polling average, with 28.7 percent support, compared with 22 percent for Biden.

Sanders’ rise is making Obama “increasingly anxious,” according to Fox Business reporter Charles Gasparino, citing Democratic Party sources.

The former president is even thinking about making a “public statement” to address his concerns, Gasparino tweeted Thursday.

“SCOOP: Dem Party sources who have spoken w @BarackObama say former prez is growing increasingly anxious about @BernieSanders rise in the national polls & where the avowed socialist would take the country,” Gasparino tweeted.

“[H]e is considering a public statement addressing it more now.”

While Obama implemented a host of liberal policies during his time as president, it’s possible that Sanders, who supports eliminating private health insurance, forgiving all federal student loan debt and abolishing U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement, is too far left of a candidate even for him.

Gasparino’s report came the same day a former high-level adviser to Obama claimed the Vermont senator would be the “worst candidate in a general election.”

    What obammy is really getting anxious about is that justice is closing in on his criminal ass and that he will soon be facing the federal pen and/or the firing squad.
