Former President Barack Obama delivered forward-looking, encouraging remarks in response to the police killing of George Floyd and the ongoing nationwide protests, and the Internet rejoiced. President Obama’s comments, part of a town hall organized by his My Brother’s Keeper Alliance, were focused for his younger audience, and were short and seemingly off-the-cuff, yet inspired a nation thirsting for caring, intelligence, and leadership.
Take a look.
I Love President Barack Obama.

Finally, a president trying to inspire and unite us.
President Obama understands the importance of leadership. For the past three and a half years, that type of leadership has been completely absent in the White House and missing among Republicans.pic.twitter.com/FPaDoQ5hc9

Barack Obama speaks to our better angels. No matter what color you are. Barack Obama is the best of America. Barack Obama is American beauty.

The contrast could not be more stark: the current lack of national leadership & the compassion, goodness & inspiration being expressed by former presidents. We need to rid ourselves of @realDonaldTrump’s tyranny & sycophants. Return integrity to the White House & Congress. Vote.

Obama absolutely nailed it… “Make people in power uncomfortable”… God I miss him… #takeobamalive

How comforting to hear President @BarackObama who is articulate, comforting, uniting. Forgot what that feels like.
Instead we have to deal w a racist dividing authoritarian KGB troll.
