Former President Barack Obama doesn’t believe President Joe Biden can win in November and wants to see him drop out of the 2024 race, according to insiders who spoke to RadarOnline.com.
The outlet reported that Biden “is stubbornly ignoring polls, pals, and (Obama), who are all allegedly telling the 81-year-old he needs to quit the 2024 race to save America and the Democratic Party.”
The report said that, according to insiders, tensions between Biden and Obama “exploded” after an “irate” 44th president went into a secret meeting and “confronted Biden” about his falling poll numbers as he attempted to fend off the likely GOP nominee Donald Trump, who has been surging in the polls.
“Obama read Joe the riot act,” a Beltway insider claimed to the National Enquirer. “He told him to up his game or step aside for a candidate who could win the race.”
RadarOnline noted further:
America’s first Black president, 62, has betrayed his old running mate before. He endorsed Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election despite Biden’s declared goal to take the top job.
Incredibly, Joe seems almost oblivious to the lack of excitement about his campaign and cratering approval ratings. Recent polls show a scant 38 percent of American’s approve of his performance with a whopping 58 percent holding a negative opinion of his work.
Also, comments made by former first lady Michelle Obama recently during a podcast have many speculating she is positioning herself to become the Democratic nominee — instead of Vice President Kamala Harris, who is more unpopular than Biden.

Appearing on Jay Shetty’s “On Purpose” podcast, the host asked her what keeps her up at night.
“What keeps me up are the things that I know: the war in the region, in too many regions. What is AI going to do for us? The environment, you know, are we moving at all fast enough?” she began.
“What are we doing about education? Are people going to vote? And why aren’t people voting? Are we too stuck to our phones? I mean, these are the things that keep me up because you don’t have control over them, and you wonder, where are people, where are we in this, where are our hearts? What’s going to happen in this next election?” she continued.
“I am terrified about what could possibly happen. Because our leaders matter. Who we select, who speaks for us, who holds that bully pulpit. It affects us in ways that, sometimes, I think people take it for granted,” she added. “You know, the fact that people think that government — ‘eh, does it really even do anything?’ — And I’m like, oh my God, does government do everything for us, and we cannot take this democracy for granted. And sometimes, I worry that we do. Those are the things that keep me up.”
Her comments led longtime Republican operative Roger Stone, a vehement ally of former President Donald Trump, to predict anew that she was “positioning” herself to be the nominee.
I continue to predict – as I have for well over two years – that Michelle Obama will be the Democrat Party Nominee for President in 2024.

For the 2024 cycle, as Trump continues to rise in the polls, the Biden administration and Democrats in general are campaigning on portraying the 45th president as a “threat to democracy,” conjuring images of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and making baseless claims that he will become a dictator — even as the Biden administration is prosecuting him for various charges.
In addition, the White House launched a new initiative this week headed by Harris that seeks to make abortion a campaign issue as well.
What is distinctly missing from the current Biden reelection strategy is any discussion of his policies and record while in office, as the border remains chaotic, prices for most goods and services remain substantially higher than when Biden took office, and most Americans reject other initiatives like his push to eliminate gasoline-powered vehicles.
