8yrs we had him! The REAL AUTHENTIC #LEGACY of #PresidentBarackObama! #PresidentObama is the MOST SUCCESSFUL president in history because he accomplished what 43 presidents before him could not, he shattered the glass ceiling. #BILLIONS of children around the world have grown up ONLY knowing a man of color as PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, COMMANDER IN CHIEF-the most powerful man in the world, leader of the free world. He held that office with dignity, integrity, grace, courage under fire, faced unprecedented attacks in the ring and in the corner from everyone who criticised him. He never buckled under the pressure, he had NO SCANDAL, nothing anyone could attack him on legally. He showed us a loving marriage and beautiful family where everyone was an asset to this country. EVERY HUMAN BEING VIEWS THEMSELVES DIFFERENTLY, views the world differently. Every person on the planet views race in a whole new light because of #BarackObama. That is the #GREATEST SUCCESS of any previous president. A child of color said to his mother "Trump will be the first white president". This is their new reality. THE ESSENCE OF THIS MAN TOUCHED EVERY PERSON ALIVE and the consciouness of this PLANET has elevated into higher realms. Everyone now has the #AudacityOfHope for the rest of their lives that they will pass on generationally. Small #SOULless minds can never change what has already happened-his legacy is bigger than legislation or law. If it can be easily erased THAT WASN'T YOUR LEGACY. No one can erase what has penetrated the #SOULofthePLANET! REAL GENIUNE LEGACY CAN NEVER BE ERASED! Trajectory of what's possible has changed exponentially #GLOBALLY! He is no Mandela, he is no Dr. King because HE IS BARACK OBAMA 44th president of the United States and we will speak his name for all eternity. #HIStory#44#BarackObama#POTUS44#GOAT#ObamaOut#IHAVEADREAM#DREAMFULFILLED#HOPEinACTION#YESweCAN#YESweDID! WE WILL NEVER FORGET! #HOPEbeatsHATE
September 15th, 2016: President Obama speaking at the 39th Annual CHCI Public Policy Conference. (2nd video is from Ellen - Feb 2016). Someone yells out "Don't jinx us!" in the first clip.
I will let you infer what you will about his body language in the first video, to the phrasing of his response in the second video.
#TakeTheKnee. The difference between #PresidentObama and #Trump reactions to #ColinKaepernick kneeling movement. One stands for our 1st Amendment rights. One is attacking our first amendment rights. http://time.com/4955050/trump-obama-nfl-nba-kaepernick-kneeling/
