(PresidentialWire.com)- White House Press Secretary just confirmed your worst fears…former President Barack Obama is influencing the White House.
On Tuesday, the press secretary admitted that Biden and Obama speak “regularly.” It comes after Maria Bartiromo of Fox News claimed that sources told her “Biden’s on the phone all the time with Obama” and that she hears the former president is “running things from behind the scenes.”
And while Psaki confirmed the reports to be true, she refused to disclose why the president is calling the former president and what exactly they’re talking about.
It’s probably not a conversation about football…

Remember when Biden promised to run the most transparent administration in history?
The news will be particularly shocking to anybody who remembers the time that President Obama told Stephen Colbert that he misses being in the White House and wishes that he could stay in the role through the use of a frontman.
When asked if he would like to run again, Obama responded, “I’ve said this before, people would ask me, ‘Knowing what you know now, do you wish you had a third term?’”
“And I used to say, ‘You know what, if I could make an arrangement where I had a stand-in, a frontman or a frontwoman and they had an earpiece in and I was just in my basement with my sweats looking through the stuff, and I could sort of deliver the lines, but somebody else was doing all the talking and ceremony, I would be fine with that,’” he added.
Well, it looks like that’s precisely what he’s got with President Joe Biden.
Psaki insisted the calls were simply taking place because they were “president and vice president” and that they are “also friends.”
“They share a bond of serving through eight years of the Obama-Biden administration but also a personal friendship and kinship,” she said.
Has nobody told President Biden about the time President Obama told supporters not to underestimate Biden’s ability to “f*ck things up?”
Seems like a real friend…
