10 attacks Obama unleashed on Trump, GOP in midterm speech

💣"What happened to the Republican Party?"
💣"The politics of division and resentment and paranoia has unfortunately found a home in the Republican Party."
💣"Republicans who know better in Congress, and they're there -- they're quoted saying, 'Yeah, we know this is kind of crazy' -- are still bending over backwards to shield this behavior from scrutiny or accountability or consequence, seem utterly unwilling to find the backbone
to safeguard the institutions that make our democracy work."
💣 "They're not doing us a service by actively promoting 90% of the crazy stuff that's coming out of this White House, and saying 'Don't worry, we're preventing the other 10%.' That's not how things are supposed to
work. This is not normal."
💣 "I know there are Republicans who believe government should only perform a few minimal functions but that one of those functions should be making sure nearly 3,000 Americans don't die in a hurricane and its aftermath."
💣 How hard can that be, saying that Nazis are bad?"
💣 "It did not start with Donald Trump, he is a symptom, not the cause."
💣 "You've got to do what the Parkland kids are doing. ... And they're not giving up until we have a Congress that sees your lives are more important than
a campaign check from the NRA."
💣 "It should not be a partisan issue to say that we do not pressure the attorney general or the FBI to use the criminal justice system as a cudgel to punish our political opponents or to explicitly call on the attorney general to protect members
of our own party from prosecution because an election happens to be coming up."
💣 "It's supposed to be the party supposedly of fiscal conservatism. Suddenly deficits do not matter."

🖕I will not buy the #Gaslighting that Obama on the trail is a bad idea.
