President Obama’s stunning eulogy for Rep. John Lewis was a stark reminder of what was. In the inimitable words of Joni Mitchell, “Don't it always seem to go, that you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone.” Let’s honor John the way he would want us to - vote. Image
@CNN "America was built by John Lewises. ... John Lewis will be a founding father of that fuller, fairer, better America," former President Barack Obama says in his eulogy for the late civil rights icon.

Watch it here:


@jemelehill If hearing Obama’s excellent eulogy of John Lewis doesn’t inspire you to vote, then you are literally spitting — and that was the word I wanted to use — on John Lewis’ legacy.

I actually agree #ObamaWasBetterAtEverything. when he was running an insurgent campaign against the establishment candidate hillary clinton, he pulled no punches, didn't play nice, didn't do bullshit civility politics. instead he did this and won:

here's more of obama just brutally mocking hillary clinton, calling out her hypocrisy and lies, her fakeness

remember in that debate in 2016 when bernie was asked point-blank by hillary to name one example of a vote she changed due to donations and being corrupt, and bernie didn't say anything while we were all shouting: "THE BANKRUPTCY BILL!!!". obama said it:

Recreating this from March in my temp account:

Some facts for the MAGA crowd who keep comparing the Obama/Biden H1N1 response in 2009-10 to Covid-19 in 2019-20.

The CDC estimates the flu kills 12,000 to 61,000 Americans per year.



Here is a timeline of what happened under Obama:

Obama inaugurated in Jan of 2009 amidst the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression 80 years earlier. It was grim.

The first H1N1 case in the US was ID'd in mid April of 2009

HHS declares a public health emergency on April 26, 2009 despite only a handful of cases in the US.

Within 30 days of that first case, over 1 million Americans had been tested for H1N1. It took around 70 days for the US under Trump to reach 1 million tested.

Eagerly and enthusiastically awaiting the conversation with President @BarackObama. ♥️
For those who don't eat, sleep, and breathe #SexualHealth and #SexEd, this is what we're aiming for. We don't want "they didn't say no". We're want "they gave eager and enthusiastic consent." That's where the bar should be.
YES!!!! 👏 👏 👏 👏 👏 Starting with spoken word!!! Artists will save us. #ArtIsPolitical

In response to Trump's tweet where he claims credit for the current state of the economy, I thought I'd share the transcript for episode 8 of my podcast ("I Feel Snitty"), entitled, "Don Didn't Built That." It was aired 9/4/19.…
Welcome to I Feel Snitty, episode 8, entitled, “Don Didn’t Build That.” I’m your host, Craig Rozniecki. Today I’ll be dissecting Donald Trump’s seemingly constant self-praise, proving once and for all the claims he makes on his alleged positive accomplishments are nothing more
than riding Barack Obama’s coattails harder than a frat brother on steroids rides a mechanical bull after doing 16 Jaegerbomb shots.

I’ll start each dissection with a quote made by Trump pertaining to the category at hand, starting with the unemployment rate.
