In what can only be interpreted as an implicit insult against current President Joe Biden, former President Barack Obama slammed the idea of ‘open borders’ during an interview with ABC News on Tuesday.

As The Daily Wire reports:

Former President Barack Obama took a shot at President Joe Biden during an ABC News interview on Tuesday as Biden struggles to grapple with the crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border that many say was caused by Biden’s policies and rhetoric.

In speaking with “Good Morning America” co-anchor Robin Roberts, Obama said that the horrifying images of up to 30,000 illegal aliens being trapped under a bridge in Del Rio, Texas, were “a painful reminder that we don’t have this right yet and we’ve got more work to do.”

Obama said that while Biden was “big-hearted,” that it was time to “get serious about dealing with this problem in a systemic way, as opposed to these one-offs where we’re constantly reacting to emergencies.”

“Immigration is tough. It always has been because, on the one hand, I think we are naturally a people that wants to help others. And we see tragedy and hardship and families that are desperately trying to get here so that their kids are safe, and they’re in some cases fleeing violence or catastrophe,” Obama added. “At the same time, we’re a nation state. We have borders. The idea that we can just have open borders is something that … as a practical matter, is unsustainable.”

Obama has a history of undercutting his former Vice-President and casting doubts on his abilities.

NO SHIT! These Idiots might have good enough Eyesight to see things AFTER the fact, but they Suuure don’t have the Intelligence to have ANY VISION of their mistaken, wrong thinking policies AHEAD of time.
Liberals live in a Dream UTOPIA that CAN’T Happen…. and in the meantime they continuously cause one disaster after another with their tragically Foul thinking.

I say a greeting card onetime you could send to the hopeless romantic in your life. When you opened the card there’s a cliff with sharp pointed rocks at the bottom with bleeding bodies and above on the cliff we’re more people running and jumping off those are the hopeless
I showed it to a friend and without any second thoughts he said loudly you betcha he understood immediately and immediately agreed he was a hopeless romantic. That’s Democrats in a nut shell or maybe it’s nutty democrats in a shel either would be descriptive and correct hopelessly democratic Why bother ignore them they way they ignore us and may the battle go to those that don’t jump

too bad Obama used big words, as Biden is unlikely to understand what he’s saying about a country needing borders….maybe if he drew it out in crayon, and gave Biden some cookies and milk he’d understand…you have to deal with Biden as a toddler, as that’s his level of comprehension these days.

Yup, first and FOREMOST, the “blankey” you failed to mention. I believe it’s now where he spends 70/75% of his time. And

That’s because of the decades of cocaine abuse he chose to endure! Even Ozzy Osbourne would say how is that f_cker still alive after all of that coke?
