Obama attacks Trump admin’s protest crackdown, voter suppression in Lewis eulogy

Obama attacked the Trump admin while delivering eulogy to late John Lewis saying that people in power are ’doing their darnedest to discourage people from voting by closing polling locations and targeting minorities and students with restrictive ID laws...even undermining the postal service.’ The former president said that ’Lewis fought against the attacks on democracy... that we’re seeing now.’

That was thoughtful of the man to use a eulogy as a political platform. Disgusting and disrespectful there Mr. Obama.

I find it racist that Democrats find it black people are too dumb to get a drivers license.

It's called frustration. Obama was fought tooth and nail by the Republicans to accomplish anything. Obama saw bigotry beyond the scope that any president should have to endure. And he rose above it and did his job. Obama won over members of Congress , found common ground. And did his job! The Russians refused to even shake his hand when he was first elected. That changed over time. Obama earned every bit of respect that was shown to him. He never bullied, sent troops in on his fellow Americans, never called people names. Never belittled anyone. Obama loved and still loves America, so please excuse him for not liking what he is seeing now. How this country has become divided and how it's people are treated. He was at a funeral for a civil rights legend. Who endured some of the same things that are happening now. We haven't learned a damn thing! So forgive Obama for showing his emotions. He earned the right to show then. Have any of you? WAKE UP!

Not only BHO broke with the tradition to avoid getting into politics of the current admin, but he did it during a eulogy. Classy.

So in short, Obama used Lewis's funeral to campaign for Biden.
