I really hate this fucking guy.
President Barack Obama faces a difficult challenge Thursday when he hosts a town hall aimed at engaging the country in a conversation about the combustible issue of race and policing after a series of horrifying and violent incidents last week.
The killings of African-American men by police in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and suburban Minneapolis, followed by a sniper’s rampage that killed five police officers protecting a peaceful protest march in Dallas, have left the nation on edge.
The hour-long town hall, which will be simulcast on ESPN and ABC and streamed on multiple platforms at 8 p.m. ET, is part of the president’s effort to restore calm and forge exchanges around the emotional issue of how police treat African-Americans – perhaps the most volatile fault line in American race relations.
“It’s a week that laid bare some of our country’s toughest, most uncomfortable challenges,” Obama said in a recent Facebook post. “But I reject the idea that these issues are somehow too big for us – that America is too divided to find common ground. As I’ve said, I know that we can honor the incredible courage and service of our police officers – and also recognize the racial disparities that exist in our criminal justice system. There’s no contradiction there.”
During the Washington, D.C., meeting, the president will field questions from police officers, students, community leaders and others in hopes of promoting understanding about the nation’s racial disparities, a subject on which Americans of different races hold sharply divergent views.
What a load of crap!
The worst part won’t even be the bullshit that comes out of Obama’s mouth, it will be the way his sycophantic followers in and out of the media lap it up with a spoon.
Fuck that and fuck him. I won’t be watching. I would rather shove a wet noodle up a bobcat’s ass than listen to Obama speak.
