The president claimed he hadn’t heard his predecessor’s remarks criticizing U.S. leadership during the coronavirus pandemic.
President Donald Trump on Sunday tore into former President Barack Obama, calling him “an incompetent president” after Obama appeared to criticize his response to the coronavirus crisis during two commencement speeches a day earlier.
Asked about Obama’s remarks, Trump told reporters on the White House lawn that he “didn’t hear it” before proceeding to bash his predecessor as “grossly incompetent.”
“Look, he was an incompetent president,” Trump said. “That’s all I can say. Grossly incompetent.” (Read more)
The Political Agitator’s response: For those who say President Obama did not do anything while President, well Trump continues to prove that to be not true almost daily. If President Obama has not done anything why do he need to talk about him?
Don Lemon wants to know why President Donald Trump is still obsessed with former President Barack Obama.
Over the weekend, in what Lemon called “a new low from a president who goes low all the time,” Trump retweeted a conspiracy theory about Obama. Lemon said it was a “shameless attempt” to distract Americans from the administration’s continued failures in dealing with the coronavirus pandemic.
“In a time when we need leadership, when we need compassion, this is the crap that you’re peddling? Conspiracy theories?” Lemon asked.
Lemon also praised former President George W. Bush, who sent a message urging unity among Americans. Trump responded by attacking Bush on Twitter.
Then, Lemon ― himself a target of some recent Trump rants ― returned to the topic of Obama with a message aimed directly at Trump: (Read more)
Who would ever thought?
Barack Obama became a Eulogist after becoming the President of these United States.
To eulogize a Republican shows there can be healing because all the President Obama went through, to be able to for fill this task on national TV should let us know that in spite of what it what we may go through, our works speak for us.
I reminded by a sermon this week during our church rival the Dr. Robert Wooten message was “Surviving Our Valley Experience.” President Obama survived his valley experience during his Presidency and Rep. John McCain even spoke up for him when someone tried to discredit his character.
Are you seeing and listening?
President Barack Obama and President George Bush eulogizing Rep. John McCain? We can come together.
Death can bring about beautiful and powerful experiences.
I am feeling good about what can be on today in spite of our valley experiences we can survive.
The Political Agitator’s response: It is a shame how much stuff has happened under the watch of the Secret Service since this black President has been in office. This stuff just don’t add up.
Police in Washington D.C. reveal that a Secret Service agent had his gun, badge, radio, handcuffs and flash drive were stolen during a broad daylight robbery near the agency’s headquarters. The agent’s belongings were stolen from his personal vehicle while it was parked in downtown Washington. A report filed with DC police detailed how the agent returned to his car and noticed the back rear window of his car had been “unzipped.” The police report identify the stolen items as a black Sig Sauer handgun, APX6000 radio, handcuffs, a USB flash drive, a black Patagonia bag and a Secret Service badge, number 1266. The agent is reported as belonging to the Presidential Protective Division. (Source: Read more)
The Political Agitator’s response: When all good folk, white, black, other, Republicans, Democrats and other admit to what we have experienced since electing the first black President Barack Obama that the entirely world has witnessed RACISM and IGNANCE at it’s best coming from the highest office of these United States, the better off the world will be.
One of the most important parts of the Affordable Care Act was the expansion of Medicaid to extend healthcare to low-income Americans. Most Republican governors across the country, determined to sabotage President Obama’s flagship legislation, refused to accept the expansion, preferring to let their people and their budgets suffer just to spite President Obama.
Those decisions by red governors are coming back to bite them where it really hurts- in their budgets. A new report from the Kasier Family Foundation indicates that states that refused to expand Medicaid coverage are now paying more for it than if they had, easily debunking the false narratives and doomsday prophecies that Republicans still treat as gospel, no matter how many reports or studies are released showing that the ACA in fact lowers healthcare costs.

Well I know what the bible says however I don’t confuse the bible with laws. What I truly believe is that President Obama just happen to be in office during the time that this was suppose to happen. I say that because my research in my opinion says so. https://en.wikipedia.org/…/Same-sex_marriage_in_the… But this is just my ignant opinion.
This thing started long before President Obama became President and it ain’t going to stop now.
The Political Agitator’s response: “Ignorance will never end. Even those with money can’t buy SENSE!!” Author: Curmilus Dancy II The Political Agitator
Cornel West appeared on CNN to discuss the legacy of white supremacy. During the interview, he discussed why it has taken so long to confront the issue of white supremacy in America and why so many politicians have been slow to confront the moral issues of black oppression.
Watch the interview. (Source: Watch Video)
The Political Agitator response: Damn that was enough said right there! Since the late 80’s since I have seen all races of people not taking a stand for justice and as long as that happens this will continue. I am so glad I will not go down in history not taking a stand for justice locally and nationally because I ain’t afraid.

The Political Agitator response: This dude is just too ignant!
Former neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman said in a video that surfaced on Monday that President Obama should’ve reminded the American public not to “rush to judgement” in discussing the shooting of Trayvon Martin.
Zimmerman made the comments in an interview with his Tampa, Fla. divorce lawyer that was recorded on March 8, the Orlando Sentinel reported on Monday. (Source: Read more)
The Political Agitator response: “Ignorance will never end. Even those with money can’t buy SENSE!!” Author: Curmilus Dancy II This is about as ignant as it gets that folks don’t understand the logic behind why it should be mandatory to vote. This b.s. about folks are going to vote Democrat makes no sense when the Republicans have the majority in Washington DC and in North Carolina. But I have never understood why folks chooses not to vote and let other folks vote to elect folks whom will represent them. It is up to individuals to learn about the candidates and what the issues are. But if these ignant folks whom don’t vote, if they like not voting then I love it! But sit down and shut the hell up if you don’t vote.
On Wednesday, President Obama suggested one of the worst–and possibly stupidest–ideas that’s ever come from the terrifying depths of his twisted progressive mind.
Yes, our president, the man tasked with upholding the Constitution and protecting our freedoms and liberties, wants to take away personal choice and force Americans to head to the polls.
This isn’t a popular idea with most Americans, but it left a particularly bad taste in the mouth of comedian and Price Is Right host Drew Carey, who took to Twitter to share his thoughts on what the president had to say
This pretty much sums up what we’re all thinking at this point. (Source: Read more)
The Political Agitator response: Very good article. No matter who we are I strongly feel we do things in due season. And as a person whom have been engaged in politics since the early 90’s, I recognize and understand that I don’t have to benefit from any or all of the changes that takes place on the local, state and national levels but to know that someone benefits should be the main thang!
It was by all standards of oral communication, a magnificent performance. Passionate, clear, and responsive to the context of the moment, the President was truly in “the zone.” As he ticked off item after item, on his “Middle Class” political agenda, the collective “Amen” from the Democratic base grew from a whisper to an outright shout. Community College for all? That’s right! Affordable Child Care? You better work! Paid sick leave? Don’t hurt’em Hammer!
By the end of his 6500 word speech, I had only one thought: “Where the HELL have YOU been for the last six years?!”
The man giving this magnificent performance, challenging his former colleagues in Congress to rise to the better nature of the human soul, who confidently silenced a heckler–this was THE MAN that Democrats voted into office in 2008. The defender of the middle class, the archangel of fair play, THIS Barack Obama was the one that so many believed was going to change the politics of the collective pool of nonsense known as the nation’s capital.

First, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said that he thought President Barack Obama didn’t love America. He made the comments while speaking to a crowd of conservatives at a private dinner, saying, “I do not believe— and I know this is a horrible thing to say— but I do not believe that the President loves America. He doesn’t love you. And he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country.”
Almost immediately, there was a strong reaction— both in support of and against the comments. One of the most outspoken people against Giuliani’s thoughts on the President so far has been Minister Louis Farrakhan, who didn’t hold back when letting Giuliani know what he thought of his remarks.

The Political Agitator response: These ignants will continue to do anything they possibly can to attempt to discredit this black man. Damn shame!
Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) responded late Monday to former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s accusation that President Barack Obama doesn’t “love America” by highlighting his administration’s accomplishments, including the killing of Osama bin Laden.
Giuliani and many other prominent Republicans have faulted Obama for refusing to call the Islamic State terror group ‘Islamic.’ The retiring senator took a shot across the bow at the ex-mayor in a tweet reminding him that the Obama administration was responsible for finally taking out the elusive al-Qaeda leader: (Source: Read more)
The Political Agitator response: Again save that thought! You see these guys say stuff and then try to act like they don’t mean it in the public but I bet behind closed doors the message stands. You see when folks say stuff like this, they are saying how some folks really feel and didn’t have the guts to say it publicly so they have done it for them. Damn say what you mean and mean what you say or shut the hell up. Once you have said it, you can’t change it. It is a damn shame that these guys making these ignant comments over and over again after the President has won both ought to get over him being an intelligent black man who they need to respect. Hell I didn’t say they had to like him but they need to just respect the man and the better off they will be.
After doubling and tripling down on his controversial comments regarding President Barack Obama’s lack of love for America, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani on Sunday moved closer to something of a mea culpa.
“My blunt language suggesting that the president doesn’t love America notwithstanding, I didn’t intend to question President Obama’s motives or the content of his heart,” Giuliani wrote in a Wall Street Journal op-ed. “My intended focus really was the effect his words and his actions have on the morale of the country, and how that effect may damage his performance.”
The former GOP presidential candidate then went on to criticize the president for “his inability or disinclination to emphasize what is right with America,” a point Republicans have been making for some time now. He also took issue with Obama for failing to express adequate support for allies like Israel and Ukraine. (Source: Read more)
The Political Agitator response: Just because our President is black. When will they ever get over it? Never! I can’t wait to see what they are going to do when his term is over. This is one of the best articles I have read in a long time. This is an awesome report!
Let’s sing the praises of Obamacare for a minute.
Get back here! I said just for a minute. OK, it’s not the tidiest law in history. You’re probably still sulking because you wanted something simple and rational, like a single-payer plan. But it’s here, and about 10 million people have health coverage who didn’t have it before.
Plus, it’s apparently working better than any of us imagined. Here is how great the Affordable Care Act is doing: The Supreme Court is about to hear a challenge to the law, filed on behalf of four Virginia plaintiffs, who claim to have suffered grievous harm by being forced to either buy health coverage or pay a penalty. Lately, reporters have been trying to track down this quartet of pain, and discovered they are: (Source: Read more)
