President Barack Obama is giving a speech right now, airing on multiple cable news networks, and live streaming on the obama.org website. He’s just a few minutes into it, and he hasn’t even reached the town hall Q&A portion of the event yet. But Obama is already reminding is of what a real President sounds like.
President Obama is thoughtfully speaking about the murder of George Floyd, the institutional racism involved, and the ways in which police conduct is overseen. He’s also thanking the police who have marched alongside the protesters. Obama is also addressing the importance of protesting and voting in order to create real change.
