Obama Speaks

I know it’s old news by this point, but, if you haven’t yet, I’d suggest that you make some time and watch President Obama’s speech to students at the University of Illinois which is so infuriating the right today.

Fox News laid bare in 3 minutes

As I’ve mentioned here before, I don’t think it’s particularly helpful at this stage of the game to point out the hypocrisy of those who continue to support Trump.
