After a one hour meeting with Bernie Sanders today, President Obama officially endorsed Hillary Clinton via the release of a well produced video.
However, White House spokesman Josh Earnest accidentally let it slip the video was recorded last Tuesday – BEFORE California, New Jersey, Montana, New Mexico and South Dakota even held their primary elections.
The “D’oh” moment is at the end of this video clip:
Yes, it appears the scripted Associated Press release on Monday and the White House recording on Tuesday is the final evidence Bernie was never going to be allowed. Earnest admitting the endorsement video was recorded before the votes being counted on Tuesday is just salt in an open wound.
The reality of a rehearsed, produced, and heavily scripted roll out of Hillary Clinton as the presumptive nominee is yet another example of how Senator Bernie Sanders never stood a chance. The professional DNC machine was always going to anoint Hillary Clinton.
