Joe Biden, the man everyone thinks is running against President Trump in the election isn’t even the official DNC nominee.
In an interview with Fox news, Xochitl Hinojosa, the DNC Communications Director said: “We are not officially nominating Joe Biden.”
It’s a big statement, considering it was buried within a throw-away response regarding the party convention, which was meant to be held in July, but is now scheduled for August.
Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer asked Xochitl Hinojosa: “There’s a real possibility the convention does not happen or it happens in a virtual sense. Is that correct as of today?”
Hinojosa full response was: “First of all, our convention has to happen because we are not officially nominating Joe Biden in order to take Donald Trump. So our convention is happening. There is business that has to happen.”
If it’s not going to be Joe Biden, someone needs to tell him because he’s already hit out at the President with an attack ad.
We All Presumed Joe Biden
Everyone just concluded it would be Joe Biden after Sen. Bernie Sanders dropped out of the race and vowed to support the Democrat nominee.
He said: “Today I am asking all Americans — I’m asking every Democrat, I’m asking every independent, I’m asking a lot of Republican — to come together in this campaign to support your candidacy which I endorse.”
All the headlines at that point said Sanders was endorsing Biden but it seems the DNC are trying to keep some mystery surrounding it.
Ironically, Biden even thinks it’s him, saying at the same event in April: “If I am the nominee, which it looks like now you just made me, I am going to need you, not just to win the campaign, but to govern.”
The big question is, if this was a mistake by the DNC communications director, why hasn’t it been addressed?
