All that President Obama has to do to show up Donald Trump is to simply show up, and that’s what happened when Obama gave a virtual commencement speech for students tonight which aired live on several national television channels. Trump notably went silent on Twitter during Obama’s speech, because Trump is a bully, and bullies are always cowards. But others had plenty to say.
Trump has spent the past week pushing a completely incoherent phony scandal that he calls “Obamagate.” To that end, he keeps posting the same one- word tweet “OBAMAGATE” over and over again. Tonight, real Americans pushed back on this by pushing the #OBAMAGREAT hashtag, which quickly began trending:
I miss having a president who can speak in coherent sentences. #ObamaGreat
