The spin from Biden’s campaign will be that losing one funder is no big deal. But that’s not the case.
The former Vice President performed horribly during the Democrat debate. The most pivotal moment came as Senate hag Kamala Harris called Biden out for his friendship with racists.
But Biden’s woes began a few days earlier.
As CNBC reported,
Former Vice President Joe Biden lost one of his top fundraisers after controversial comments regarding his work with past segregationists and his flip-flop on repealing the Hyde Amendment, CNBC has learned.
Tom McInerney, a veteran San Francisco based lawyer, informed Biden’s team on June 20 that he can no longer help him raise campaign cash to compete in the 2020 presidential election.
“I had actually let the campaign known I’d pulled back my support of Biden for now,” McInerney told CNBC. “I don’t think he did well last night,” he added, reflecting on Biden’s debate performance on Thursday night.
This is not “for now”, as McInerney’s quote suggests.
He pulled back his support forever. And as the article suggests, many more will follow:
While McInerney is the first financier to publicly withdraw his support after Biden’s controversial round of comments, the loss is significant because it could be a harbinger of further defections.
“I would imagine I’m not alone,” said McInerney, who was a lead bundler for President Barack Obama in his first run for president. He helped Obama’s campaign raise at least $200,000 throughout that cycle, according to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics.
No, McInerney is not alone. According to Vox:
Joe Biden may be a favorite of the country’s wealthiest donors. But in Silicon Valley, he has serious work to do.
When the presidential candidate touches down in San Francisco on Friday for a trio of local fundraisers after Thursday’s bruising debate, he faces another hurdle: overcoming the perception that he lacks the the high-octane support of leaders in the tech industry — and that he is coasting on legacy relationships.
That’s because Biden’s fundraising roster in Silicon Valley is not very Silicon Valley. It skews older and does not seem to capture much of the new wealth and influence created by today’s hot tech companies. While other candidates like Cory Booker and especially Pete Buttigieg have found success raising money from this newer generation of cutting-edge startup leaders, the former vice president is somewhat held back by his lack of younger, tech-savvy money, both neutral and Biden-backing fundraisers say.
Booker? Buttigieg? These two shouldn’t even be mentioned with a racehorse like Biden. But the real problem with this article is the idea that Biden is a “favorite of the country’s wealthiest donors”. Since when?
Biden’s initial money raise was expected. Think Jeb Bush, and you get the picture. However, since declaring his run for the presidency, Biden’s poll numbers, star, and fortunes have all fallen.
Biden’s problem? Biden.
Nobody bets that a nag will win the derby. And let’s face it, Biden is a nag.
His racist past teamed with his sexual creepiness only belie the bigger problem that is Biden. That problem: Biden only knows how to be Biden. And Biden is goofy personified. Awkward to a fault.
Biden likes to “look” presidential, and pulls it off with all the deft of a person suffering from cerebral palsy.
Biden’s fall from grace will reflect in his next Federal Election Commissions report. And those numbers won’t look good for the former VP.
The good news for America is Democrats continue a protracted primary cycle. Each of these goofballs will suck money from the system. No doubt Democrats will re-up once their victim is selected to face the president. However, resistance will be futile.
Democrats won’t have the black vote, nor the vote of Gen Z or Millennials. They will have alienated any pro-America group, including those on the Left.
As for Biden, he will be odd man out for a third and final time.

In case you missed it, I declared a while back that Joe Biden will not be the Democrats’ presidential nominee.
First, Biden is a moron. While this is true of all the Democrat candidates, Biden is the president of Planet Moronia.
Second, Biden spooned with racists. He was the little spoon. Kamala Harris called Biden out for this, and Biden was too stupid to see it coming or to respond appropriately.
Third, Biden loves the ladies. While he doesn’t use “Little Joe” to molest women, he does publicly humiliate women sexually, as he exerts his toxic masculinity all over them.
Fourth, Biden’s son Hunter.
As The New Yorker reports. Hunter “Cokehead” Biden participated in shady business dealings. His shenanigans have been kept in the closet until now. Biden the Younger battles drugs and alcohol. And keep in mind this twisted guy divorced his wife and married his older (dead) brother Beau’s widow.
So if you thought Joe Biden was crazy, look at the apple that fell from that tree.
The Bidens can be bought.
The New Yorker articles connects the dots on how Hunter Biden. The article explains that while on the board of the World Food Program USA, Hunter Biden received a 2.8 carat diamond by Chinese energy tycoon Ye Jianming, the head of CEFC China energy. A “gift”.
Biden admitted he was trying to secure a large donation from Ye at the time. According to Biden, the diamond wasn’t a bribe, since his father was out of office. He further claims he gave the rock to his associates. But that may have been a lie.
Hell hath no fury.
During Biden’s divorce proceedings, his ex-wife referenced the diamond. She suggested that the rock represented one of Biden’s “personal indulgences.”
Regardless of the diamond, I’ve asked another question. “Who puts a cokehead in charge of a $40 million deal?
The New Yorker article reported that Biden continued working with Ye, negotiating a deal for CEFC to invest $40 million in a liquefied natural gas project in Louisiana. The deal eventually fell through when Ye was detained by Chinese authorities in 2018 in what was reportedly an anti-corruption charge. Biden maintains that Ye was not a “shady character” and chalked up the situation to “bad luck.”
Yep, bad luck.
Just like the bad luck of Joe Biden befriending segregationists? Or the bad luck of Creepy Joe Biden smelling women’s hair? Or the bad luck of Joe Biden threatening Ukraine for investigating his son?
Biden: If the prosecutors is not fired, you’re not getting the money.
The Hill reported on Biden bragging about what he accomplished in Ukraine. Two years after leaving office, Joe Biden couldn’t resist the temptation last year to brag to an audience of foreign policy specialists about the time as vice president that he strong-armed Ukraine into firing its top prosecutor. In his own words, with video cameras rolling, Biden described how he threatened Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in March 2016 that the Obama administration would pull $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees, sending the former Soviet republic toward insolvency, if it didn’t immediately fire Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.
“I said, ‘You’re not getting the billion.’ I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money,’” Biden recalled telling Poroshenko.
“Well, son of a bitch, he got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time,” Biden told the Council on Foreign Relations event, insisting that President Obama was in on the threat.
Solid. As in solidly in Biden’s corner.
In one sentence Biden proved his corruption and his lust for real power. Not the power of a VP, but the power of a president. Now Adam “Collusion” Schiff claims Trump setting Biden up.
STEPHANOPOULOS: We also saw an effort this week by Rudy Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer, to get the Ukrainians to investigate Joe Biden for his diplomacy in the Ukraine while his son was serving on the board of the largest natural gas producer there. And the president told Politico on Friday it would be appropriate for him to discuss a probe of Biden with the attorney general. Is it appropriate?
SCHIFF: Of course it’s not appropriate and what is so shocking to me, I served for many years on a democracy commission in the Congress where we would partner with parliaments in emerging countries, emerging democracies and we would always say when you win an election you don’t seek to jail the losing side. And here the president of the United States is saying it’s perfectly OK for him — and he has said this before — to go to the attorney general and get them to open an investigation of his rivals. And sadly, this attorney general has turned out to be so political and partisan and so without — frankly without integrity, he just might do it.
Biden’s political career ended with Obama. But Biden was the Great White Hope to bring down Trump. Somebody forgot to tell Kamala Harris.
The dialogue continues,
And you know, that does add to the sense of crisis that these democratic norms are being broken down every day. The fact that we’re not even done with this investigation of the last foreign interference in our election and Giuliani, apparently with the president’s — at least initially — knowledge and blessing, was going to get the help of another foreign government in a presidential election. You know, it — it tells me that they not only think this — there’s nothing wrong with this. If that’s true, there’s something wrong with them.
How about the underlying issue, though? There’s no public evidence that the vice president — former vice president took any inappropriate action to help his son, but was it right for Hunter Biden to take a job like that in Ukraine while his father was engaged in diplomacy there?
I don’t know the circumstances in which he took the job but I can say this vis-à-vis Joe Biden, there’s no evidence nor has there ever been any evidence that he was doing anything but trying to get the Ukraine government to crack down on corruption. Now we’re providing generous support to Ukraine, we’re providing defensive weapons to Ukraine, we want Ukraine to be successful in its conflict with Russia. But part of that is happening in a government that the people of Ukraine are willing to fight for and protect.
And they’ve had an endemic corruption problem. That’s what Joe Biden was trying to address. So going after his son is just a method of going after someone the president believes is his most formidable opponent.
So yes, let the president go after him, but don’t seek the help of a foreign government in your election. And, you know, if this isn’t criminal and Bob Mueller said he could prove all the ailments of a crime, then maybe we need to change the ailments of that crime because we cannot make this the new norm that if you can’t win an election on your own, it’s fine to seek help from a foreign power.
LOL. Trump already won an election on his own. And unlike Hillary Clinton he needed no help to do so.
Biden created his own problems when he bragged about getting a prosecutor fired for doing his job.
Clearly Democrats see the writing on the wall. The spin will continue, until the spin meets the unmovable object. Justice.
