Democrats recreate the Wellstone memorial

John Lewis' funeral was filled with campaign slogans, just like the Paul Wellstone funeral was in 2002.

Barack Obama, took to the podium at Rep. John Lewis' funeral this afternoon and turned what was supposed to be a eulogy into a divisive, angry speech that sounded more like something you'd hear at a DNC rally.

Pointing his finger, the animated president warned the guests at John Lewis' funeral that minorities are somehow being stripped of their right to vote in America, “But even as we sit here, there are those in power who are doing their darndest to discourage people from voting, by closing polling locations—and targeting minorities and students with restrictive ID laws—and attacking our voting rights with surgical precision—even undermining the postal service in a run-up election that's gonna be dependent on mail-in ballots so people don't get sick!”

After two months of rioting and political chaos, there are still people who claim it all about the death of George Floyd. They're wrong. And Obama proved today he is one of the most dishonest political figures in American history.

Obama said of ways to continue Lewis' legacy, “By ending some of the partisan gerrymandering — so that all voters have the power to choose their politicians, not the other way around. And if all this takes eliminating the filibuster — another Jim Crow relic — in order to secure the God-given rights of every American, then that's what we should do.”
