Ted Cruz Crushes Obama for Claiming GOP Has 'Massive War Chest, Propaganda Network'
Republican senator shreds former Democrat president over Joe Biden endorsement speech
After months of unexplained silence on the matter, Barack Obama finally gave his endorsement to former Vice President Joe Biden for the Democratic presidential nomination on Tuesday.
Despite failing to reveal why he waited until Biden was literally the last candidate left in the Democrat race before endorsing him, Obama released an almost 12-minute-long video seeking to convince America to vote for the ex-VP.
In a speech loaded with heavy pushes for the Democrats' socialist agenda, Obama took several vicious swipes at President Donald Trump and Republicans.
The ex-POTUS attempted to frame his "friend Joe Biden" as a hero who will lead the Democrats in their struggle to save the American people by taking power back from the evil Republican Party.
"The other side has a massive war chest," Obama claimed as he attacked the GOP and Trump campaign.
"The other side has a propaganda network with little regard for the truth," he added.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) responded by taking aim and obliterating Obama.
The Texas Republican senator fired back at Obama's remarks on Twitter:

“Shorter Obama: ‘Dems only have 8 of the 10 richest American billionaires—including Bloomberg, Bezos & the Google founders—plus Soros & Steyer. And we’ve only got ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, WaPo, NYT & just about every other newspaper in America. How can we compete on $$ and propaganda?’”

In August 2017, CNN’s Jake Tapper admitted: “I don’t want to compare President Obama and President Trump on these issues because they’re different, and the scale isn’t even remotely the same.
"But President Obama said things that weren’t true and got away with it more for a variety of reasons, and one is the media was much more supportive of him.”
There are numerous instances of the media's bias toward Obama.
Examples include the infamous interference of CNN’s Candy Crowley, during Obama’s 2012 debate with Mitt Romney.
During the debate, she interjected her own version of the truth to blunt Romney’s attack on Obama and support Obama’s version of events.
In his video endorsing Biden, Obama also made a pitch for more government, rather than less.
The former Democrat president claims that “pandemics have a way of cutting through a lot of noise and spin to remind us of what is real and what is important.
"This crisis has reminded us that government matters.”
“I could not be prouder of the incredible progress that we made together during my presidency,” Obama bragged.
He then asserted that he wouldn’t run the same campaign he had in 2008 because the world had changed.
“Bernie understands that, and Joe understands that," he intoned.
"It’s one of the reasons that Joe already has what is the most progressive platform of any major-party nominee in history.”
After outlining his agenda's goals, he blasted:
"One thing everybody has learned by now is that the Republicans occupying the White House and running the U.S. Senate are not interested in progress; they’re interested in power.
"They’ve shown themselves willing to kick millions off their health insurance and eliminate preexisting condition protections for millions more … (they’ve) denied the science of climate changing just as they’ve denied the science of pandemics.
"Repeatedly they’ve disregarded American principles on rule of law and voting rights and transparency.
"Basic norms that previous administrations observed regardless of party.
"Principles that are the bedrock of our democracy.
"So our country’s future hangs on this election.
"And it won’t be easy. The other side has a massive war chest.
"The other side has a propaganda network with little regard for the truth …
"On the other hand, pandemics have a way of cutting through a lot of noise and spin to remind us of what is real and what is important.
"This crisis has reminded us that government matters."
In 2013, Obama stated during his second inaugural speech:
”The American people don’t expect government to solve every problem.
"They don’t expect those of us in this chamber to agree on every issue.
"But they do expect us to put the nation’s interests before party.”
Just not right now.
