[Ed. – An argument is to be made that the country is so screwed up because he served as its president.]
Former President Barack Obama on Saturday criticized President Donald Trump in all but name as he gave a televised commencement address for high school seniors.
Obama’s message to graduating high school students came at the end of an hourlong television special.
Obama panned ‘so-called grown-ups, including some with fancy titles and important jobs’ who do ‘what feels good, what’s convenient, what’s easy.’
‘That’s how little kids think,’ he added, ‘which is why things are so screwed up.’
The 44th President did not mention Trump by name, but there was no mistaking who he meant.
Earlier on Saturday, Obama gave another commencement address online, in which he claimed that the pandemic showed many officials were not ‘even pretending to be in charge.’
Obama spoke on ‘Show Me Your Walk, HBCU Edition,’ a two-hour event for students graduating from historically black colleges and universities, which was broadcast on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.
