    Wait, presidents are supposed to talk in coherent sentences that contain more than 6 different words?!

    It’s been way too long…

    Fabulous. Keep these messages going Barack Obama. They are so important for all people, but particularly young people who have been and who feel, marginalised. Wonderful stuff. And thank you for being you!

  3. Historians will document the Trump era as one of failure, racial division and anti-immigrant rhetoric, scandal, economic collapse, political corruption and incompetence at every level of government. In contrast, the Obama era will be remembered as lacking any political scandal, as one of economic growth and stability, as one of optimism and unity, and as the era that exposed the true racist nature of the Republican Party and its followers.

    • @Nathan S Have you ever won an argument? If you’re looking for likes just go onto Facebook.

    • @Nathan S Post a picture of your cat. Neo-libs love em.

    • @Vega Nona I’m smart enough to realize there’s no point in arguing with a Jill Stein clone.

    • @Nathan S My point is I don’t even think you could mount an argument. That’s why you’d come to an echo chamber such as CNNonline.

    • @Vega Nona This is not CNN honey. So much self righteous anger you have! You must be saving the world; Good for you! Do you think you’ve mounted an argument honey? You’re just ranting and raving like your hero Jill Stein. lol. Go to a KKK rally. You belong there.

  4. Now, here we have a real president !

    Pay attention Trumpholes, you’re looking at a REAL President.

    • Trump didn’t hide in a bunker. It’s a fake news. He retired in the control room where he can supervise everything’s happening.

      Lucidella33 Yet the secret service reports bunker hiding. Be gone troll be gone.

    • Amenadiel The Fallen | June 4, 2020 at 6:28 PM | Reply

      @Lucidella33 You are incredibly naive. Ignorance of the truth can only take you so far before someone else like me calls you out on it. Consider that a warning.

    • 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.

    • Amenadiel The Fallen | June 4, 2020 at 10:35 PM | Reply

      @Adam S First off you have no idea what you are talking about. Not to mention you must be completely ignorant because you failed and/or refuse to acknowledge the fact that out of those 8 years, the Obama Administration was blocked from passing almost every substantive legislation that could have helped back then by the Republican Party for nearly 7 years! So, you’re right about one thing. “We must all educate ourselves”. My suggestion is to learn what really happened before you start posting. Class dismissed.

    Around the world we’re 😔 horrified to see your democracy diminishing under “🍊 leadership”. Europe stands with you & your fight for true democracy ✊🏻✊🏽✊🏿

    Remember when the president could spell?

  8. The old must make way for the young, the new..its inevitable.

    After almost 12 years we still turn to Obama for real leadership.

      Facts 💯💯💯💯

    • Obama 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.

    • Leadership spied on American citizens what kind of leadership is that corrupt and a nation divider

    I hope just SEEING Obama drives Trump crazy!

    • cathyannkailee | June 3, 2020 at 9:37 PM | Reply

      It does
      I wish he would speak out more often mainly because a calm intelligent kind voice is so desperately needed.
      Also a bonus that it drives the orange man crazy

      @cathyannkailee Fox News and their viewers propagate, Obama, the blame for their own Healthcare, tried to blame him for the pandemic until someone provided them the official instructions for a pandemic that was given to this administration upon Obama’s exist from the WhiteHouse. And their working on blaming him for the protests.

    Yes Mister President, I too see our youth as a great national treasure.

  12. A calm, intelligent voice. Thank you, Mr. PRESIDENT! You have been missed.

  13. James Sanders | June 3, 2020 at 8:11 PM | Reply

    We need your insight and leadership in these times of trouble.

  14. I miss you, President Obama. 😢

  15. Keenan Thomas | June 3, 2020 at 8:25 PM | Reply

    See what leader do: accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative. It’s called positive reinforcement. If you ignore the negative it will dissolve for a lack of oxygen and if you feed the positive it will grow and regenerate more positivity.

    • Obama shouldn’t encourage violence.

    • David Butler | June 4, 2020 at 5:24 PM | Reply

      Lucidella33 America was founded on violence. Riots, burning ships, and dumping tea in the Boston Harbor. Then we waged a guerilla war against England till independence was won. Should educate yourself before speaking.

    • Obama 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.

  16. YES U CAN YOUNG PEOPLE ELDERS GOT UR BACK. GO FOR IT!

    Oh how the world misses President Obama now.

    That’s a person with good and real intention for American people. Not divisive. Obama for president again

    A message from the last legitimate president. That seems like a thousand years ago…
