Obama less combative in California speech

Obama less combative in California speech

In that speech, he slammed "crazy stuff" coming out of the Trump White House and blasted President Donald Trump for trying to politicize the Justice Department.

The former president's remarks in IL came ahead of a series of campaign stops to help fellow Democrats running in the November midterm elections. "Our antibodies kick in and people of good will from across the political spectrum call out the bigots and the fear-mongers and work to compromise and get things done and promote the better angels of our nation". "Your lies, your policies, and your divisiveness". "It did not start with Donald Trump ― he is a symptom, not the cause".

During his speech Friday, Obama warned that there are "dire" consequences to staying on the political sidelines, adding that "powerful and privileged" people want to "keep us angry". "He's just capitalizing on resentments that politicians have been fanning for years", Obama said.

"What bothers me is that if what was written was true, then there is a cabal in the White House that's working against the president", said Paterson, who also served as the New York Democratic Party's chairman.

In response to Obama's critique, Trump claims to have fallen asleep while watching the speech. "'I don't recognize what's going on in Washington right now - that's not what I believe, '" Obama said.


At an event in North Dakota, Trump again brought up Obama's address.

Following his California visit, Obama will travel to OH next Thursday for an event for Richard Cordray, the Democratic gubernatorial candidate in OH, and he is also slated to headline a campaign event in Pennsylvania later this month, and a NY fundraiser for the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, an organization led by former Attorney General Eric Holder, Obama's longtime friend. "I found that he's very, very good for sleeping".

In unusually direct terms, he made clear his concerns about politics in the Trump era and implored voters - especially young people - to show up at the polls in the November midterm elections.

"Because in the end, the threat to our democracy doesn't just come from Donald Trump or the current batch of Republicans in congress or the Koch brothers and their lobbyists or too much compromise from Democrats or Russian hacking", Obama said. "Barack Obama wasn't ready for America", said Bongino.

The one-time community organizer used his notable gift of oration and implored students to get out and vote, setting up the election as a defining moment for the direction of the country. "You can not sit back and wait for a savior". "That's the only way it could happen", he told a Montana rally.
