Sanders ad with Obama raises eyebrows

by AMIE PARNES -The Hill  |  Published on March 6, 2020

Sen. Bernie Sanders is embracing former President Obama in a new video that underscores the Vermont independent’s need to win over black voters.

The video, which shows the former president with his arm around Sanders walking into the Oval Office, was released after the Vermont senator was routed by former Vice President Joe Biden in a series of Super Tuesday primaries where Biden handily won the African American vote.

The ad includes a passage from a 2016 interview Obama gave to journalist Glenn Thrush for Politico in which he said Sanders has the virtue of “saying what he believes, great authenticity, great passion, and is fearless.”

It also includes audio of then-Sen. Obama saying that Sanders is someone who will fight for people, a clip taken from a speech delivered while he campaigned for Sanders and another congressional candidate in 2006.
