Washington (CNN)Pete Buttigieg is weighing whether to endorse Joe Biden after exiting the Democratic presidential race late Sunday night and later speaking on the phone with the former vice president and former President Barack Obama.

An endorsement for Biden is likely, two people close to Buttigieg say, but whether he makes the decision before Super Tuesday is unclear.

President Trump called it yesterday. Right after BootyGig announced he’s leaving the race Trump tweeted about a Biden /dnc move against Bernie.

That's been the strategy from the start.

Project “Kneecap Bernie” is in full swing, word has it Obama is going to endorse Biden as well. I wonder what the “Bernie Bros” are going to think about having defeat snatched from the jaws of victory by the party elite two elections in row? (I doubt Bernie himself will care, he’ll get another beach house out of the deal.)

They are probably negotiating over the size of the quid pro quo for the endorsement.

Well, that's it. Biden is in, lol.

I'm kind of going to miss the Buttigieg threads and humor. I remember when Barney Frank was always in the news, and Rush would play that song, My Boy Lollipop, whenever Frank was to be the next topic.

This attempted uniparty end around reverse pay will likely back fire in Bernie’s favor.

Buttigieg is a deep state boy, so of course he’d go this way.

I can’t see this ending peacefully if true and Biden secures the super-delegate induced nomination. The undercover Project Veritas subject prophetically suggested Milwaukee will burn. It seems likely so.

The Bernie Bros will come back in 2024 totally united behind AOC. I doubt she is going to take a beach house to go away. That one will get ugly.

Maybe Biden’s people told Mayor Pete that they would pay off some of his leftover campaign debts if he decides to go all in for Uncle Joe. There is often a lot of ‘horse trading’ prior to endorsements. Some may even call it Quid Pro Quo!

Hey Joe, with Pete behind you, what’s not to like?

“I remember when Barney Frank was always in the news...”

I wonder if Barney’s wife/husband is still running the prostitution service out of their house.

The appropriate Ukranian officials have to be consulted and with the time difference there is a coordination lag.

It’s gotta be today, and he will. It is really surprising to see “DNC Discipline” finally come down like a hammer. Steyr out. Mayor Homo out. Klobuchar sabotaged ini St. Louis. When the DNC issues orders things happen.
