All of the worst Democrats are coming out of the woodwork to support California Gov. Gavin Newsom. As tiresome as it all is, the worst part is watching former President Barack Obama hog the spotlight all over again.
Obama has reemerged in support of Newsom and to prop up President Joe Biden’s floundering agenda, Fox News reported. Newsom faces a recall vote this month while Biden’s approval ratings are in a freefall.
“California! You’ve got a big choice to make by September 14, and everything is on the line,” Obama urged. “Your vote could be the difference between protecting our kids or putting them at risk; helping Californians recover or taking us backwards. Vote ‘no’ on the Republican recall,” he tweeted using all of the usual leftist tropes.
Newsom shared a video message from the former president on his Twitter Wednesday reiterating that message. Up until recently, Obama was happy just churning out self-serving content for Netflix.
Listen to @BarackObama — California has a big choice to make on September 14th.
Your vote could be the difference.
Vote NO on the Republican Recall.

Not wanting to waste another opportunity to self-aggrandize, Obama also tweeted his support for Biden’s agenda by reminiscing about his own political success in implementing socialism. Biden had released a video Tuesday speaking about the 12th anniversary of Obamacare’s passage.
“Great memories of an important day. 31 million people now have health insurance—and the peace of mind that comes with it—thanks to the Affordable Care Act,” he tweeted with Biden’s schmaltzy video retrospective. “Now@POTUS is committed to making it even stronger through his Build Back Better plan.”
Obama seems to think his magic touch is enough to rescue Biden from his sliding approval ratings. Newsom may be doing well in preliminary polling, but time will tell how the people of California really feel.
Things are already pretty dismal in the Democratic party, but it’s telling to watch Obama and Vice President Kamala Harris try to prop Newsom up. Hopefully, the Democrats will be successfully vanquished in the recall and beyond.
