Obama Torches Trump During John Lewis Eulogy: Doing His ‘Darndest’ to Discourage Minority Voting

‘Even as we sit here, there are those in power who are doing their darnedest to discourage people from voting’

EXCERPT:

OBAMA: “We may no longer have to guess the number of jelly beans in a jar in order to cast a ballot, but even as we sit here, there are those in power who are doing their darnedest to discourage people from voting by closing polling locations and targeting minorities and students with restrictive I.D. laws and attacking our voting rights with surgical precision, even undermining the Postal Service in the run up to an election that’s going to be dependent on mail-in ballots so people don’t get sick. I know this is celebration of John’s life. There are some who might say we shouldn’t dwell on such things. But that’s why I’m talking about it. John Lewis devoted his time on this Earth fighting the very attacks on democracy and what’s best in America that we’re seeing circulate right now.”
