Funeral Of Civil Rights Icon Rep. John Lewis Elicits A Call To Preserve Voting Rights | MSNBC

Former President Barack Obama eulogized Rep. John Lewis with a strong condemnation of those who endanger the voting rights for which Lewis risked his life. Obama spoke against those he said are ‘attacking our voting rights with surgical precision, even undermining the postal service in the run-up to an election that’s going to be dependent on mail-in ballots so people don’t get sick." President Trump, for his part, used the day of Lewis’ funeral to make an unconstitutional suggestion that the election be delayed. Here’s what you need to know. Aired on 7/30/2020.

Funeral Of Civil Rights Icon Rep. John Lewis Elicits A Call To Preserve Voting Rights | MSNBC


    1. Obama/Biden did EXACTLY what Nixon did. I can’t decide who was worse,but I’m leaning toward Obama/Biden.

    2. What a disgusting pi of shi you are obama you came to a funeral to discuss politics you will allways be the same stupid disgusting person

    1. @Eli Dicken
      No Russian girls for u demonspawn, u have to sniff keyster for your king, Tinkerbell

    2. @Eli Dicken
      You must be confused, you have to lap keyster for Satan now, you don’t have a choice.. Good luck with that, Pumpkin

    1. @Stephen Hansen I get it.You are liberal so you automatically are in favor of voter fraud. I believe in showing a picture ID and castng a ballot.I’m for integrity of the voting process you are not.

    2. @David Eby you’re very busy spouting conclusions for which there isn’t proof. About me and anything else. No one, myself included, will learn anything useful from a debate with you.

    3. @David Eby write one fact or truth. Try. It doesn’t have to be political or about the election.

  1. The elections were OK when you won the presidency! You didn’t question if there was any mis-counts on mail-in ballots!

  2. “15 will go to zero.”
    DJ Trump
    Instead the zero’s went to the 15.
    150,000 dead patriots.
    Blood on the hands of the incompetent criminal traitor Trump.

    1. @sam mckenzie There are 3141 counties in the US
      Trump won 3084 of them, shrillery won 57
      There are 62 counties in New York state
      Trump won 46, shrillery 16
      Clinton won the popular vote by approx 2-3mil
      In the five counties that encompass NYC, Shrillery received well over 2mil votes more than Trump
      Therefore, these counties alone more than accounted for Clinton winning the popular vote of the entire country.
      These counties comprise 319 square miles.
      The US is 3,797,000 square miles.

      When you have a country that is almost 4 million square miles it would be ludicrous to suggest that the vote of these 5
      counties should dictate the outcome of a national election..

      This children, is why we have the electoral, so a few cities cannot speak for the rest of the country

      oops! stupid )

  3. This all or nothing approach to government is nuts, a Democratic America has representation in government for all citizens. Thats how it works properly.We need to bring civility back to this country. This is not a war.

  4. Look at how many of these comments get deleted when you call them out to be what they are, russian trolls!

  5. Look at how many of these comments get deleted because they get called out for what they are, from russian trolls!

    1. Did you hear the Ghislaine Maxwell documents just dropped? Looks pretty bad for your side. Ouch.
      Not to mention the Durham investigation, a CRIMINAL investigation, is about to conclude before the election.

    2. Sparky McSpark ummm…you mean Jeffs accomplice Trump wished ‘well’, Comrade?


    3. @Patty Kelly Oh, it’s not good. Looks like Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew are on the list. Can’t say we didn’t tell you so.

    4. @Eli Dicken Nope, the documents clear Trump. Hope you are ready for 4 more years of Trump and maybe more if you’re lucky.

  6. Internet “Research” Agency
    The agency has employed *fake accounts* registered on major social networking sites,[2] discussion boards, online newspaper sites, and *video hosting services* to promote the Kremlin’s interests in domestic and foreign policy including Ukraine and the Middle East as well as attempting to influence the 2016 United States presidential election. More than 1,000 employees reportedly worked in a single building of the agency in 2015.

  7. What I don’t hear is term limits for ALL positions in government, a requirement to have an education to hold any office and the banning of religious idiots from holding any office. Then the government will work for the people.

    1. How about banning Democrats because of the slavery connection? That makes more sence than banning Uncle Ben.

    2. @David Eby STFU you moron. It’s you people that are about to be pushed aside, made irrelevant and powerless to control others. Now go find a rock because you’ll be needing it to crawl under soon.

  8. No one is listening to him anymore, he really does think he can do what he likes, love to be a fly on the wall when finds out he can’t delay anything and only Congress can, maybe he should watch Obama he might learn how a REAL president acts

  9. President Putin’s Puppet is the only one allowed to use a mail-in ballot, which is essentially the same as an absentee ballot.

  10. You can be assured that if Don the Con is behind on election night, he’ll change his tune to “we have to count every ballot”.

  11. t’rump: We need to postpone the election!
    China: That’s our move.
    t’rump: See! I’m right!
    America: 🤦
