    • Jani mosa what’s wrong with you people… maybe check the so called “facts” you get out of dodgy YouTube videos and conspiracy blogs as carefully as you check the information from traditional media outlets…

    • @Louisa536 said without self awareness as 4 years of obama’s deep state goons all became very quiet under oath unable to repeat all the nonsense they had spewed on tv.
      How’s that virus pandemic narrative going for ya, suddenly forgotten, how convenient.

    Another teachable moment from a corrupt egomaniac.

    • That’s a bold statement, considering that the biggest egomaniac is in the White House right now …

      Amen brother 👌🏻👍🏼

    • @Louisa536 said without any self awareness as the ex pres who started the black cities burning decides to chime in against all historical protocol.

      @wooo weee And who started a war on the poice.

    • …but this was all normalized 20 years ago, so I posted at a mediamonarchy.com December 19th 2007: police brutality and torture are normal after 9/11, and who helped to normalize all that? our previous puppet presidents, who, oh man wouldn’t you know it, they’re on the scene right now!

      George W. Bush says George Floyd’s death reveals America’s tragic failures. bold words for a skull and boner war criminal and the guy who executed 152 people as governor of Texas

      Oh, Obama, hosts town hall discussion of re-imagining policing after George Floyd’s death, which is a really great way to get black folks to chill out, vote Biden and of course distract from your own record of brutalizing protesters at Standing Rock and Occupy, not to mention bombing so many countries, five, remember five more than Bush, that he ran out of bombs!!!!

    Mr. President, your bookshelf ain’t “Becoming”? Don’t see it 🤔😀

    Some folks decided to loot during protests

  9. Just a reminder – When we lose to Trump in 2020, please dont riot or try to undermine our country to get back at Trump. It hurts the lower income minorities the most.

    • Good Father | June 4, 2020 at 7:38 PM | Reply

      When Trump loses against biden, tell Trump’s white supremacist followers to not start a war…

    • @Good Father Hahaha Obama & Biden had 8 years and did nothing for the black communities. You’re delusional. Look up how many black people were killed by cops under his leadership. They did nothing!

    This is how a good leader leads. We need more leaders in the world like Obama.

  11. Deleting my comments now youtube. You don’t want people to know the truth about militant atheist communism, hiding behind the facade of the DNC.

    Thanking the good police for there service. Calling all police bad is like calling all protesters rioters.

    You could have done so much more for society in the country, but you did not!!!

      Agree and what’s happening is a failure of all previous presidents, every single one of them has been a failure including Obama

    • He NEVER led on the issue of race relations in 8 full years – just encouraged Americans to *talk amongst ourselves* about race. The lamest stance he could possibly take. And did *nothing* to empower minorities, the middle class or the poor. He DID militarize the police force. And here we are today.

  17. Paula Morris | June 4, 2020 at 5:26 PM | Reply

    What a JOKE!!!!!!! like you care never did anything or your brothers in Chicago??

  18. He had 8 years to fix this and same stuff was happening, he called the same people who looted and rioted in Freddie Grays murder in 2015 Baltimore “Looters and Thugs”. No one is perfect we must all educate ourselves.

  19. Sally Huang | June 4, 2020 at 8:46 PM | Reply

    Those African Americans voted you but what did you do to resolve the issue in 8 years term?

  20. Nothing changed under Obama, these are some hollow words from a man that had an opportunity to CHANGE the status quo.
