Former President Barack Obama can’t even pull a crowd a quarter the size of what President Trump can – and honestly, it’s sad.
Any former president should be able to attract a decent crowd size, especially while campaigning in a historic election like this, but the fact that Obama can’t make it happen means America is simply fed up with the Left.
Furthermore, why should Americans show any enthusiasm for a presidential candidate like Joe Biden, who calls a 5-day lid on his public appearances without valid explanation?
No amount of star power campaigning on Biden’s behalf can make up for that and it shows in the crowd sizes that Former President Obama received this week.
On Wednesday, Obama pounded the pavement campaigning for his former Vice President Biden in Philadelphia, which is supposed to be a Democrat stronghold, yet he was not well received.
The former president held a “drive-in” rally where only about 300 cars arrived to hear him speak on behalf of the Biden-Harris ticket, according to Fox 29.
Perhaps the turnout was so low simply because he spent most of his speech bashing Trump like the Left always does.
Obama dishonestly told rally goers that Trump “hasn’t shown any interest in doing the work or helping anybody but himself and his friends,” in addition to many more lies and insults.
On the same day, Obama took to the streets to talk to local Philadelphians about voting for Biden to a crowd of what looked like far less than 100 on videos circulating on social media.
Here is a clip of Obama speaking to supporters.
When is the Left going to learn that their platform and their methods simply do not resonate with the American people?
Then again, they don’t care about what the American people want, they care about gaining power.
President Trump taunted Obama and Biden for the failed outcome of their campaign events.
“Obama is campaigning for us. Every time he speaks, people come over to our side. He didn’t even want to endorse Sleepy Joe. Did so long after primaries were over!” he humorously tweeted on Thursday.

While the president was somewhat joking, there is truth to what he’s saying. Obama’s increased appearances on behalf of Biden don’t seem to be helping much and using the same old anti-Trump talking points has gotten old.
Americans want to see candidates who have real solutions, not tired talking points. The Biden campaign is simply not filling that need, but President Trump is. That’s why he sees crowds of tens of thousands. It’s obvious where the enthusiasm lies, but it’s a matter of where the votes end up on November 3rd.
