Barack and Michelle Obama delivered speeches at the Democratic National Convention that the media hailed as epic take downs of Donald Trump.
The Obamas and every other Democrat expected those speeches to help cement Joe Biden’s victory in the fall.
But Barack and Michelle Obama discovered the one betrayal they never saw coming.
Both Barack and Michelle Obama slammed Donald Trump and America in their speeches as racist.
Michelle Obama went even further and smeared Donald Trump supporters as racists.
Joe Biden faces an enthusiasm problem with young black voters.
The Biden campaign deployed both Barack and Michelle Obama in primetime during their convention to help correct that problem.
Hillary Clinton also tried this strategy in 2016 to disastrous results.
The early returns for Biden’s campaign suggest the Obamas have no special power to motivate young black voters to turnout for Democrats.
On night two of the Republican National Convention NBC “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd noted that the Biden campaign is worried Donald Trump will overperform with black men.
“There is another focus, showcasing what President Trump is done on criminal justice reform,” Todd told a stunned NBC viewing audience. “You know, both campaigns, guys, tell me that there is a chance that Donald Trump could over perform with African-American men. It’s a concern of the Biden campaign and it’s a focus of the Trump campaign.”
Tod’s commentary came after a star making speech by 34 year old black Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron.
Cameron was one of many black speakers following Herschel Walker, Kim Klacik, Tim Scott and Vernon Jones that trashed the fake news media lie that Donald Trump was a racist and also put the spotlight on Joe Biden’s long history of racist commentary.
In his speech, Cameron called out Biden for telling black voters in 2012 that Mitt Romney wanted to put “y’all back in chains”, telling a black radio host that if he couldn’t tell if he was for Biden or Trump than “you ain’t black” and also stated that all blacks think alike.
Cameron took apart Biden’s racism in one of the most memorable lines of any speech from the convention.
“Mr. Vice President, look at me. I am Black. We are not all the same, sir. I am not in chains. My mind is my own and you can’t tell me how to vote because of the color of my skin,” Cameron exclaimed.
Polling shows Donald Trump has an opening to win over the votes of young black men.
The Biden campaign understands this.
And that’s why the fake news media worked so hard to trash the Republican Convention.
They know the Trump campaign put forth a compelling list of speakers with an appealing message targeted at Joe Biden’s soft support among young black voters.
