The political arena, already fraught with fervor, has become the canvas for a conspiracy that’s been fueled and flamed for far too long. Former President Donald Trump, never one to shy away from incendiary insinuations, has cranked up the volume on a decades-old notion that simmers within conservative circles. He stands before a crowd during a campaign stop in New Hampshire, and his words, sharp and sizzling, pierce the atmosphere. “It’s never been worse than it is now under crooked Joe Biden and, frankly, his boss, Barack Hussein Obama. I think it’s his boss.”
This notion, this curious claim, has been a shadow in the realm of political discourse for some time, a theory that thrives on suspicion and speculation. It’s grown from mere whispers to a crescendo of belief, underpinned by a 2020 video. The video, seemingly innocuous, captures Barack Obama in a moment of jest on late-night television, speaking of stand-ins and earpieces, delivered with humor and levity. However, this seemingly light-hearted moment has, in the hands of others, fueled a storm of speculation. An ever-widening narrative weaves a story of Obama, once the Commander-in-Chief, now a clandestine puppeteer pulling the strings in the hallowed halls of the White House.
But it’s essential to separate the narrative from fact, the shadows from the reality. (glonme.com) The truth, as often is the case in the murky world of politics, is far more complex. There is no concrete evidence to suggest that Barack Obama exerts a substantial influence over the actions and decisions of President Joe Biden’s administration. (glonme.com) His role, it seems, is one of an elder statesman, an advisor called upon for counsel, a presence, yes, but not a mastermind.
The narrative of Biden and Obama, once painted in the colors of a ‘bromance,’ has evolved. The complexities of the President’s relationship with his predecessor defy simplification. (news-us.feednews.com) It’s a relationship marked by reserve and a different tone than the harmonious duet it once was. This is a reality far removed from the puppet-master trope, a narrative that has found fertile ground, nonetheless, in the minds of many.
In recent weeks, Trump’s insinuations, this recurrent chord he strikes, have found amplification. His words resonate in Iowa, where he raises questions about Joe Biden’s intelligence. It’s an insinuation that slithers into the realm of shadowy figures operating behind the curtains, influencing policies, and shaping decisions. He casts doubt on President Biden, doubting not just his capacity but his position as the ultimate decision-maker.
But it’s in New Hampshire, amidst the cheers and fervor, that Trump’s narrative takes a step further, embracing the notion of a third world war, a bleak vision of ‘obliteration.’ Here, in the granite state, he doesn’t just hint; he asserts, boldly, “This is obliteration, and Obama has plenty to do with it.” The words “Biden’s boss” resound, a declaration that shifts the discussion into the realm of conspiratorial certainty.

This notion, the idea of a puppeteer hidden behind the scenes, pulling the strings, has transcended mere speculation. It’s taken residence on the internet, before Biden’s inauguration and ever since. It’s etched into the minds of many, unsettling and divisive, casting doubt on the very foundations of American democracy.
It’s a narrative that stands at the intersection of politics and conspiracy, a crossroads where belief and fact diverge. The implications stretch far beyond the realm of Trump’s rhetoric. They touch the core of American democracy, asking questions about the sanctity of the political process, and the integrity of those who lead the nation. It’s a narrative that whispers of distrust and whispers louder in the corridors of power.
