It appears President Trump had the last laugh as his satirical video mocking President Obama’s current recommendation of previous Vice President Joe Biden has gathered more views within hours than Obama’s 12- minute address carried out in the recently.
Obama endorsed his former running mate after all of Biden’s main competitors withdrew from the governmental race. The widely advertised recommendation gotten 10.2 million views given that last Tuesday.
However, the video Trump shared surpassed Obama’s video, earning 10.3 million views within roughly 13 hours regardless of the previous president’s remarks still having more likes and retweets.
The video– which was not produced by the project– parodies an Allstate commercial with the insurer’s spokesperson Dennis Haysbert seeing a basketball video game with his friends prior to a commercial of Haysbert advertising Allstate appears on the screen. In the original ad, Haysbert’s good friends urge him to alter the channel, which he does, just to find another Allstate ad starring himself.
In the video Trump tweeted, Obama’s head is certainly superimposed over Haysbert’s, and rather of an Allstate commercial, a phony Biden advertisement appears on the TELEVISION when the basketball video game goes to business.

” The kids used to come up and reach in the pool and rub my leg down so it was straight and then view the hair come back up again,” Biden states in the phony ad. “I learnt more about kids getting on my lap, and I enjoyed kids jumping on my lap.”
The ad may be fake, but it uses a real quote by the former vice president from June 2017 in which he was explaining his time as a lifeguard at a Delaware swimming pool when he was younger. The Biden comments were not nefarious and were not the main subject of the speech he was giving, but have actually been seized on by his challengers previously to illustrate the candidate’s gaffe-prone nature.
The video Trump tweeted shows Obama shrugging and saying “what” to the others taking a look at him just as Haysbert carries out in the original Allstate commercial.
Obama provided his official endorsement to the presumptive Democratic nominee one day after Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., who withdrew from the race, offered his endorsement.
” Choosing Joe to be my vice president was one of the very best choices I ever made, and he became a friend. And I believe Joe has all the qualities we need in a president right now,” Obama stated.

Pointing to the serious difficulties the country deals with as it handles the coronavirus pandemic, the previous president said, “Joe has the character and the experience to assist us through among our darkest times and recover us through a long recovery. And I know he’ll surround himself with good individuals– professionals, scientists, military authorities who actually know how to run the federal government and appreciate doing an excellent job running the government.”
And Obama stressed that Biden’s a more powerful governmental contender after enduring a historic primary field that peaked at some 25 White Home hopefuls.
” Now Joe will be a much better candidate for having actually run the onslaught of primaries and caucuses together with among the most outstanding Democratic fields ever. Each of our prospects were skilled and good, with a track record of accomplishment, smart concepts, and severe visions for the future,” the previous president kept in mind.
