Valerie Jarrett: Obama's Message Was This Moment Is Different | Morning Joe | MSNBC


  1. To anyone reading this, stay safe, be happy, and may your life be great. Much love to you all.

    1. @Kenneth Hargrove Eight years of Obama’s leadership has left America demonstrably weaker and more divided. Rather than the promised “healing”—racial and other—the Obama era frayed the ties that bind us.

      It began when his Justice Department dropped an open-and-shut voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party. It was essentially a declaration that his administration would use the Voting Rights Act to protect only certain races.

      There followed a steady stream of false claims that America was an inherently racist society with a biased judicial and law enforcement system. Obama rekindled a racial divide that had been steadily disappearing in American society.

      In fostering group identity politics for political advantage, the Obama administration only divided the American people. And the people know it.

    2. @Shemp Howard please wake-up America —-1973 Chilean coup d’état. Armed forces put the country under military control. Little and unorganized civil resistance. The 1973 Chilean coup d’état was the overthrow of the socialist President of Chile Salvador Allende by the army and national police.

    3. @Shemp Howard Nice word-salad there.. You want Cheetos with that? You can wash it all down with Windex or Clorex your choice!

    4. @Shemp Howard Actually, no. It is all of complete and utter failure false leader Chump Trump’s lies that are hurting us all.

    1. gobigorange it does, but unfortunately it only gives it to the current Vice President and not the previous President.

    2. @Teresa S Both are culpable in the crimes that have been committed. If both are removed, it would then be President Pelosi until the next inauguration.

    3. JakeyStar 2020! So if by any luck Obama becomes Vice President, could he then become President again if Biden steps down. I am from Australia and curious. Ps so sad for what America has become under 45

    4. @MFR MFR Right now it’s not about Red or Blue. Our one singular goal has to be to get him out of office. Partisanship can wait until then.

  2. Thank you President OBAMA for setting the BAR on democracy HIGH and not on a deceptive BARR to decimate democracy and TRUTH TO a new LOW

    1. @Jeff Woods I have checked the facts but REALLY? Just open your EYES and LISTEN in REAL time……DUH

    2. we are a constitutional republic not a direct mob rule democracy.
      there’s a reason why the word democracy doesn’t appear anywhere in the declaration of independence, bill of rights or the constitution.

  3. The Lyin’ King had his moments, and what moments they were dispersing protesters with all the gun and fury of a military establishment held captive by the cowardly Bunker Donald!

    1. @Shemp Howard I don’t think you understand that racism in America hasn’t disappeared. Obama was still trying to fix up racial equality. racism, prejudices and stereotypes are still around. Saying Obama divided people based on that shows that you only live in your own little happy bubble and can’t see the totality of the problem. Trump is causing so much more division than Obama had presumably caused by a long run. He tweets and verbally attacks American citizens like a 2 year old and tries to convince his fan base that it’s ‘us vs them’. Obama was trying to promote equality. Obama never told military officers to shoot at protestors, I never saw Obama claim that he had absolute authority and claims no responsibility for anything he does. He also values science and listening to medical professionals rather than going off of his own opinion. No president is perfect but Trump is the farthest president away from a leader I’ve ever seen.
      And if you say it was Obama’s fault that all of this is happening, Trump had 4 years to fix his mistakes and hasn’t.

    2. @Lucie1225 high school bullies can still speak in full sentences and with grammar. he’s on par with a toddler

    3. @cay k “fan base” they are not political supporters. If you listen or read what they have to say they sound much closer to sports fans.

    1. @Jim Skarw Surprise, surprise, another uninformed Trump rube…. Enough, with the President Obama scapegoating!! Move On

    2. @Yoshi Maeshiro Yes, well still be stuck with millions of his angry fans. They will need serious help to ever make it back to being normal human beings.

    3. @Jarrod B your dear leader makes all white supremacists look weak, stupid and incompetent. He will do more to finish your movement than anything else could.

    4. Bryn Carlson It’s one thing to be uninformed, it’s a whole different kettle to be in denial- for that’s just being mis-informed by choice.

    5. @Jarrod B no matter what he does.
      Your parents should be ashamed of you.
      Edit, sorry I see you meant US citizens, not us citizens.
      Ay carumba, I bet you get a lot of flak from others who miss your point.
      Probably worth editing your early post.

  4. My God I miss this man. How’s it possible to rent from such a great president 2 this Russian asset destroying our country and our constitution. It looks like we’re going to have to do it ourselves America we have to take our country back from Trump at any cost if we don’t America is doomed

    1. @FatBoy Smith So much spin. They did it all by the book. Were they supposed to not investigate a corrupt campaign?

    2. Still believing in the fake news Russia Collusion Conspiracy theory! haha Go get your CNN tin foil hat you crazy Conspiracy Theorist!

    3. @FatBoy Smith by turning you all into his cult followers and stealing your souls via koolaid. Destroyed, ignorant, blind and lost people AND Trump…..the Devil incarnate. Everything he touches dies or gets jailed. Destruction enough?

    1. Stone Cold your mad , seriously you really need to get away from the gates controlled computer, he knows what you are typing and bill is coming in his black helicopter for you , quick run run . Seriously you are a fruit loop

    2. @Corpus Callosum NOBODY “Stole” the Presidency! The Corrupt DemocRATS Ran Crooked Hillary aka the HildaBeast aka the Butcher of Benghazi..the Most Hated woman on planet Earth and she LOST 4 years ago! Thank GOD almighty

    3. @Stone Cold 100 thousand dead Americans (25,000 Benghazis) and counting on Trumps watch.
      40 million unemployed Americans and counting on Trumps watch.
      28 Trillion dollars of debt on Trumps watch.
      Thanks, Donald!

  5. President Obama raised these children for over 8 years… they have matriculated. Yes, they are his offsprings. And I thank God for this great man. ❤

    1. He makes us all remember what is was like to have a real President, a functioning government and hope for the future. All that is gone with the tRump Train Wreck.

    1. Just because Obummer was an intellectual that went to the school of producing shills called Harvard doesnt mean anything. He might be book smart and have gift of gab, but he did nothing for Chicago and sold us out making the common man jump through hoops to actually run a succesfull business. Obummer is a joke.

    2. @ManBearPig False leader Chump Trump is the world’s joke; and no thanks to this imbecile in chief, America is seen as weak and pathetic.

  6. It’s not the US that disappoints us, it’s Trump that has. Obama is who we still relate to as the President of the USA.

    1. See what a good education can do for you. Read good books and read decent newspapers and it is surprising how you speak.

  7. notice how when it comes to trump, almost every calls him by name and when it comes to Obama, almost everyone addresses him as President Obama. It just feels right, you know?
