Barack Obama Officially Endorses Emmanuel Macron

Tyler Durden's picture

On April 20, just days before the first round of the French election, former president Obama caused a diplomatic stir when Reuters reported that he had spoken on the phone with French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron - the market-friendly candidate preferred by Europe's establishment. Quick to avoid the perception of yet another foreign interference (who can forget Obama's strong condemnation of the Brexit campaign last summer), in a statement from Kevin Lewis, spokesperson to President Barack Obama, he said that "an endorsement was not the purpose of the call, as President Obama is not making any formal endorsement in advance of the run-off election on Sunday."

Meanwhile, Macron said Obama simply wanted to exchange views about the French presidential campaign and that the ex-president had stressed how important the relationship between the two countries was. Macron's party "En Marche!" said in a statement that "Emmanuel Macron warmly thanked Barack Obama for his friendly call."

* * *

Two weeks later, Obama no longer had any qualms about the optics of interfering in the French election, and moments ago, in a video clip released on Emanual Macron's official twitter feed, Obama officially endorsed the former Rothschild banker Emmanuel Macron.

"I'm not planning to get involved in many elections now that I don't have to run for office, but the French election is very important to the future of France and the values that we care so much about, because the success of France matters to the entire world", Obama said in the clip. 

“He appeals to people’s hopes and not their fears,” he said. “And he is committed to a better future for the French people. He has stood up for liberal values. He put forward a vision for the important role that France plays in Europe and around the world.”

Well, Obama did get involved in the Brexit vote, and he did so by endorsing the losing side. So perhaps it's a good thing that the former US president has kept his foreign political involvement to a minimum. Whether his intervention will have an impact remains to be seen, but in any case stating that Emmanuel Macron has "stood up for liberal values" Obama enrosed the 39-year-old candidate, saying "I am supporting Emmanuel Macron to lead you forward.

“I know that you face many challenges and I want all of my friends in
France to know how much I am rooting for your success" the former president added.

“Because of how important this election is, I also want you to know I am supporting Emmanuel Macron to lead you forward. En march. Vive la France.”

But who does Putin endorse?

froze25's picture

Probably LePenn, I trust Putin more than Obama any day of the week. Putin didn't go after my guns, didn't buy up all the ammo, didn't put pressure on credit card merchant services to not do business with gun/ammo dealers. Didn't make me pay for health insurance against my will under threat of force.

Hey, Kenya boy... no one gives a shit what you think or who you endorse.  Your usefulness for the tribe is spent.  Now you can go back to your bath houses and enjoy your much-deserved retirement before your next inauguration in hell.

Wasn't there some kind of uproar about foreign countries meddling in elections?  I swear I thought I heard something about that somewhere.

As always the "Rules for Radicals" dictates you project what you do onto your opponents.

Correct!  Saul, unfortunately dead, Hillary's mentor, Rules are actually quite easy to defeat.  If you know logic and rhetoric, Saul arguments go down in flames as they try to shout obscenities at you while you laugh at their behavior.  It is amazing those techniques worked as long as they did.  Game over, now though.  Delphi technique is another satanic ruse that is easy to expose, because of the imperiousness of the "leader" trying to direct you like a cult follower.  All their soft weapons have been defeated, it's almost time for the "great cleansing to begin."  The 2nd war of independence is within one misstep of the government from going hot. That's why the rush to world war, what a good way to kill us all?  THEY think...but it will actually signal the start of the 2nd war of independence that same day.  Make the populations of the world's day, that have had it waiting for their freedom, and start a world war US rogue government, go ahead.

Obama’s Cuck, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, is back!

Former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz is fully embracing the divisiveness of the Democratic Party. As she continues to shamelessly attack Bernie Sanders and progressives, the former co-chair of Hillary Clinton’s 2008 campaign makes zero effort to mask how she feels about Sanders and his supporters.


 On May 2, CNN reported Wasserman Schultz attacked Sanders and Sen. Elizabeth Warren for criticizing Barack Obama over a speech he’s scheduled to give to a Wall Street firm for $400,000.

That bitch is a nightmare. Anti-depressants and booze stick out all over her like a rash.

She looks like 200 miles of bad road and sounds 50X worse. And that's after some "prepping" I'm sure.

Wow, trying to destroy the democratic process within the Democratic party.

Now that takes balls.

Funny but not true. Now, the result has been computed, only it remains to be relased.  In a modern democracy it is not necesary to poll for electing somebody.

Meddling in the elections of others.  Hmmmmm

Need to get that special person a nice gift?  Look no further:

He's meddling because he knows his Islamist allies in France will be in trouble if M. Le Pen is elected.

The Muslim Brotherhood called their ally and Queen, Huma, to pressure Barky to do it.

If I send LePen $25 donation, do I have to register as a foreign agent?

He was calling to find out if it is OK to give $400,000. speaking engagements to French banks for "favors".

Kiss of death.

I cracked up laughing the second I read the headline.

Fuck, maybe I need to start doing prediction markets again. 19 cents buys a dollar on a LePen victory on predictit right now.

Same.  CNBC flashed it across the bottom of the screen and I laughed out loud in my office.  I just had to come here and read a few comments.  Back to work...

"But who does Putin endorse?"

K, let me 'splain it to you.

If Putin makes his preference known in an election, it's INTERFERENCE by a foreign government official.

If Barack Obama makes HIS preference known in an election, it's an ENDORSEMENT, therefore perfectly acceptable by a (former) foreign government official.

Who next? Rothschild and Soros? All three came out against Brexit within a week of the vote. That went really well for them.

I doubt Vlad gives a shit who wins

Putin is too smart and gentleman to get involved into the elections of other country.He said this multiple times.

Nigs gotta nig.

This fucker thinks he still matters.

I suspect to some brain dead people he does.. Obama matters as much as Gore mattered after loss to Bush... Then he had to grab some attention to feel relevant...


Obama will do the same thing.

The guy is shameless.  PS There was a time when decent heads of state were expected to speak a little French.

"There was a time when decent heads of state were expected to speak a little French."

I think that's "There was a time when decent heads of state were expect to speak little."

WOW...Obozo also endorsed Hitlery

Obozo is literally, beneath contempt.

Here's the thing: If people can be convinced to surrender peacefully, the world's remaining chattel will hold its value for the elites. Who will want what's left of Syria, save for a pipeline?

Hey, ole Barry's just trying to help the process along. Probably will result in higher speaking fees.

Says more about the terrorist spy Barry Soetoro than his comrade, the other scumbag.
