Now that Senator Bernie Sanders is taking it to former Vice President Joe Biden in the Iowa Caucus he is getting desperate and he is touting he’s going to bring out Michelle Obama.
Just a couple of days ago Biden was asked by a man at an event if he would consider putting Obama on the supreme court.
Here’s what Biden said:
“Yeah, I would, but I don’t think he’d do it. He’d be a great Supreme Court justice,” Biden responded. The questioner followed up with the question, “Which Obama?”
Biden responded: “They’re both incredibly qualified people and they’re such decent, honorable people.”
Man: “Would you consider appointing Obama for the Supreme Court?”
Joe Biden: “Yeah, I would, but I don’t think he’d do it. He’d be a great Supreme Court Justice.”
Man: “Second question is – which Obama?”

This isn’t the first time Biden has mentioned the former first lady being his running mate.
The New York Post reports:
In September, Biden joked during an appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” that he had “only [asked Michelle] to be my vice president,” when asked if he had asked her for advice.
The former vice president said in December at another Iowa campaign stop that he’d nominate President Obama to the nation’s highest bench “if he’d take it.”
This comes at it appears that Joe Biden is starting to have a small meltdown. On Tuesday Joe Biden was confronted by a potential voter and he got so upset he told him to go vote for someone else.
A man in Iowa asks Joe Biden to stop supporting the building of new pipelines. Joe Biden tells him to go vote for someone else and then starts accusing him of voting for Bernie Sanders. Actually, the man says, he’s voting for Tom Steyer. Very awkward. pic.twitter.com/OOuGiypED8

Lastly, this week the Biden campaign is now begging supporters to defend him on social media.
Breitbart News reports:
Joe Biden’s campaign is urging its active social-media supporters to get online and defend the Democratic presidential candidate against what it sees as increasingly aggressive attacks from the surging Bernie Sanders camp.
With less than a week before the Iowa caucuses, the Biden campaign expressed concern on a call to its supporters that Sanders people were getting ugly and it had to step up its game defending the vice president. The message was confirmed by campaign national press secretary TJ Ducklo.
What’s especially notable about this specific act of desperation, is a candidate with a real base of support should not have to ask supporters to defend him on social media, should not have to beg for this kind of energy. And to beg publicly, to admit to such a weakness publicly, it tells you just how worried they are.
Biden is getting whupped on social media because even those who say they’re going to vote for him have no passion for him.
This week the vulnerability of Biden’s campaign has been exposed.
