Obama takes aim at Trump & GOP in fiery speeches in Detroit & Milwaukee

Thank goodness for the voice of truth & reason!  Former President Obama lent his support for America with two Midwest appearances Saturday (10.26.18): Detroit & Milwaukee.  It was wonderful hearing the calming voice after months of lies from the WH & the Donald, hyper Republican nonsense with the Kavanaugh hearings, radical right-wing extremists sending 14+ bombs thru the mail to people that Trump bashes at each of his Un-American rallies, and endless string of indictments from the "Mueller Investigation" - charges against Trump's staff (who have largely pled guilty) and his cohorts in Russia.  You would do yourself a favor by listening to the speech (both speeches were quite similar).

"Here's the thing...everything I say you can look up!"
"In Washington they have racked up enough indictments to field a football team," he said. "Nobody in my administration got indicted."
“In the last election, it was Hillary’s emails. ‘This is terrible’ … ‘This is a national security crisis.’ They didn’t care about emails and you know how you know?  Because if they did, they’d be up in arms right now that the Chinese are listening to the president’s iPhone that he leaves in his golf cart.”
My favorite portion of the speech is when Mr. Obama addressed the Donald's braggadocios claims about the economy and the status of America when Trump took office as if voters & the media suddenly have amnesia about where we've been and what we went through the last time Democrats had to clean up messes caused by Republican politics: "Think back to where we were a decade ago ... We got the economy growing again (2008-2016) ... it's been growing ever since by the way...so when folks talk right now about 'oh the economy is doing so well' ....where do you think that started!?!"  And this little fun-fact: "We created more jobs by the way during my last 20-months in office than we have in the 20-months since I left office.  Go look it up," Mr. Obama said.  [link to Bureau of Labor stats]

I'm still wishin' Mr. Obama could have served a 3rd term.
