President Obama Just Gave A Classy Response Today’s White Supremacist Violence

Today, the predictable violence in the aftermath of a white supremacist rally left at least one dead and 19 others wounded. President Trump failed to mention the obvious racial motives for the attack.

President Obama however, showed the class, dignity, and respect that has been missing from the White House since he moved out on January 20.

On this dark day in an already painful chapter in American history, words can seem insufficient. So Obama called on a leader who helped pave the way for the freedom of millions of oppressed people and overcame South Africa’s Apartheid regime built on racism: Nelson Mandela.

By invoking the words of a global hero who turned oppression into triumph, Obama not only brought some much needed wisdom to the situation, he reminded us that even in the most challenging of times, better days can lie ahead. In other words, he gave us hope. 

Thanks, Obama.

Add your name to millions demanding that Congress take action on the President’s crimes. IMPEACH DONALD TRUMP!
