The Washington Post on Thursday opened an online interview with Valerie Jarrett about race with a montage of peaceful protests and an appraisal of them in the wake of George Floyds death from her former boss, Barack Obama.
When sometimes I feel despair I just see whats happening with young people all across the country and the talent, and the voice, the sophistication that they are displaying and it makes me feel optimistic, Obama said. It makes me feel this country is going to get better.
Washington Post columnist Karen Tumulty called the protests sparked after Floyd, a black man who died at the hands of Minneapolis police, peaceful and made no mention of the widespread violence at many of them.

I look around and I see the destruction and growing tyranny occurring worldwide and I feel hope.
Well Ferris felt good too!
Is he currently too terrified to leave Martha’s Vineyard?
[Well Ferris felt good too!]
I did! I hate it when looters don’t have nice cars!
[I look around and I see the destruction and growing tyranny occurring worldwide and I feel hope.]
I’m sure it does give him hope for the destruction of America.
Great job, Democrats. Really great job. Thanks!
Let them touch those things.
Ferris doesn’t drive a clunker!
Just ask Cameron! The man has wheels!
The only reason this douche spent 8 years raising his civilian army of thugs was to raise hell if he and his henchmen ever got in political trouble.
Spygate erupts, subpoenas are coming for the Coup Cluck Clan, and presto! The mobs gather in record speed. The reaction to the Floyd killing was just a test run. More riots will break out if any of this demons minions get indicted.
No kidding! Not fair! ;)
obama and ilk are the ones that fomented this racist crap- throwing fuel on the fires- and now those fires have burnt down countless businesses- and obama is optimistic? Really?
Anymore questions about whether or not he was Anti-American>?
[Is he currently too terrified to leave Marthas Vineyard?]
Here’s a little pick-me-up. Barack speaking to the people of the world with some really, really, really great music. Inspiring!
Race relations were steadily improving until this POS hit the scene.
Sorry I’m not getting to all the replies.
The Democrats remind me of the hotel night clerk (or whatever) where Corporal Melvin had lived in “The Manchurian Candidate” (2004 version).
It’s really a great movie. Raymond Shaw was such a great speaker. Really knew how to move the audience.
Denzel was promoting a nut-job conspiracy!
[Race relations were steadily improving until this POS hit the scene.]
Yep. I’ll try to read more of the replies tomorrow. Saw this one where I went to Breitbart a little while ago.
Let them touch Celine’s things....
I understand. At some point you are just too tired.
