Top Fundraiser Dumps Joe Biden, Former VP Starting to Swirl the Drain

Joe Biden is not likely to last into the first few Democrat primaries next year. After a very poor debate performance and all too many campaign trail gaffes, he has already lost one of his top donors. And more will soon do the same.

Tom McInerney, a San Francisco-based attorney who was a big bundler for Obama, has abandoned Biden before the 2020 campaign is fairly underway, Politico reported.

McInerney’s move came even before Biden’s disastrous debate performance on Thursday evening. He dumped Biden on June 20 after Biden had seemed to be heard praising the segregationist Senators he worked with back in the 1970s.

McInerney also pointed out that his decision seems prescient after Biden’s terrible debate performance.

“I had actually let the campaign know I’d pulled back my support of Biden for now,” McInerney told CNBC. “I don’t think he did well last night. I would imagine I’m not alone,” he added.

Democrat opponent Kamala Harris took out after Biden at the debate, throwing the race card at the former vice president good and hard.

Harris slammed Biden as being an opponent of bussing. She began her attack saying, “I do not believe you are a racist,” but proceeded to go on and essentially accuse him of being a racist.

That debate performance showed just how ill-suited the aged Biden is to this campaign. He is over the hill and wholly unable to understand today’s Democrat Party. And it is painfully obvious already that his being part of the “Obama-Biden” administration means absolutely nothing to the party or the voters.

Leftist Van Jones, a self-professed socialist, slammed Biden for his debate performance.

The night has the Biden campaign running scared. In private they are looking for the exit and are worried that Biden’s chickens are already cooked.

New York Magazine writer Olivia Nuzzi heard the hand wringing and tweeted about the news.

Of course, in public the Biden camp is denying that the campaign is in disarray. But with top donors fleeing, the brave public face is probably a scam.
