President Obama Returns

Issue

He's back, Barack Hussein Obama II. The former President chose the University of Chicago in his first public appearance since leaving The White House. As expected, he handled himself like a pro.

President Obama said warned that political gerrymandering is preventing the country from tackling problems like economic inequality, a broken criminal justice system and climate change.

The President

The dignity and decorum of the presidency like Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, and his Teddy's fifth cousin, Franklin exemplars of what it means to be president and of the moral authority of the presidency. It is not only what they accomplished, but how they did it; not just their policies but their dedication to democratic institutions. Trump has forever destroyed the moral authority.
