Donald Trump said he watched former President Barack Obama’s speech at the University of Illinois earlier today, but fell asleep during it. “I’m sorry. I watched it, but I fell asleep. I’ve found he’s very good, very good for sleeping.”
I watched Obama’s speech and not only did it not put me to sleep, it inspired me. It motivated me. And it dramatically demonstrated to anyone who took the time to watch it, the remarkable contrast between both the styles and the content of the former and the current presidents.
It really is too bad that Trump glibly demeaned Obama’s speech and dismissed the former president. Donald could have learned a lot about what a real president sounds like.
I so miss President Obama.
