Obama came out and criticized Trump’s presidency. Cenk Uygur, Brett Erlich, Brooke Thomas, and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down.

Read more here:

“Former President Barack Obama offered his most pointed critique to date of President Donald Trump, delivering a lengthy and direct indictment Friday of the last two years in American politics by arguing the President is “capitalizing on resentment that politicians have been fanning for years.”

The speech before more than a thousand students at the University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign was a preview of the message Obama will carry into the midterm elections. But it also represented the former President’s most comprehensive condemnation of Republicans in Washington and the first time he has publicly criticized Trump by name in a speech.”

Elections have consequences. I hope Jimmy Dore pulls his head out of his asshole but that’s probably too much to ask.

Young King · September 8, 2018 at 3:37 am

When he supposedly fell asleep. I wish he wouldn't have woke up. The world would have been a better place for it.

Patrick Barrett · September 8, 2018 at 3:38 am

So the Kenyan is back. He lost the election for Hillary, and now he will lose the midterms for the Democrats. 😄

LOGICAL MIND · September 8, 2018 at 3:39 am

Courage Karnga · September 8, 2018 at 3:39 am

Hey, it's a sane president!

sarah dean · September 8, 2018 at 3:39 am

How I long for those days.

Jarrod · September 8, 2018 at 3:40 am

Trump said he fell asleep.. I think if he was awake, he would have learn some intelligence, that's if he has the capability to learn.

Doctor Doom · September 8, 2018 at 3:44 am

Trump is sentient swamp scum, but I hate how progressives are now praising Obama. He's part of the reason we have Trump.

ThreePalmsII · September 8, 2018 at 3:45 am

Republicans get sick when they see and hear and hear an intelligent person like Obama and then have to compare him to a turd like Trump.

Mike Vega · September 8, 2018 at 3:45 am

All the obama hating trolls are out. Obama destroys jump with facts. He doesnt make stuff up like our current president. You guys get triggered, trump has been asking for it. Once we get control impeachment hearings will proceed all the way until the 2020 election. When trump loses he will be arrested. Thats the Republican future.

Kevin Gregory-Evans · September 8, 2018 at 3:47 am

Obama is critical of Trump. Shocker!. Never saw that coming!

Ray Ray · September 8, 2018 at 3:47 am

Where was President Obama on 9/11?
Probably on vacation with that Magic Johnson.

Nizzle FoShizzle · September 8, 2018 at 3:48 am

Wow, imagine this was still 2009 and whatever Obama said still mattered.

i Sheret · September 8, 2018 at 3:48 am

If the Dems win back the house can we make Obama the Speaker of the House? YES ! WE ! CAN !?!

thor ham · September 8, 2018 at 3:49 am

Obama will end Trump on any campaign at any time

CHILL PILL · September 8, 2018 at 3:49 am

TYT actually think the correct response for Trump should be bow down and cry. Lol

MAPHI NARI'I HANDS · September 8, 2018 at 3:51 am

Bolgernow · September 8, 2018 at 3:52 am

Republicans are all immoral racist hookers. They're just negotiating price. No principals

danieljckson · September 8, 2018 at 3:55 am

Its so nice to listen to a smart person speak! I am so insanely tired of stupid! From the GOP to my coworkers, from the dog park to the moron in chief, I feel inundated with stupid. Ima go listen to some Opening Arguments 😉

Blackatchaproduction · September 8, 2018 at 3:56 am

The status quo. The one obeezy kept going? You know the one where murica keeps wasting money on wars? Helping bankers. Screwing average people

Dominique Hardie · September 8, 2018 at 3:57 am

TYT, 4:56. Do you really consider what you did a pertinent journalism piece? That's entertainment, and that's all folks. Cue loony tunes music.

Scott Po · September 8, 2018 at 3:58 am

Looks like the Trump MockuPresidency is going to finale sooner than expected.

JUST ME · September 8, 2018 at 3:58 am

Trump is the SYMPTOM AND the DISEASE!

TheHeavyb1985 · September 8, 2018 at 4:00 am

Didnt Romney say Russia was the biggest geopolitical threat? What was Obama's response? When questioned about election tampering pre results what was his response? Stfu soyboy you're the reason trump got elected

Chauna · September 8, 2018 at 4:02 am

I like that he talked about Medicare for all

Can'tHandleTheTRUTH · September 8, 2018 at 4:02 am

i believe trump is an 94 year old angry grandpa that needs to steep down BUT obama has no right to speak because obama escalated so many wars and got a noble peace prize. think about it….. trump sucks …. so does obama.

Sir Alfred Lawrence · September 8, 2018 at 4:03 am


Heather Huber · September 8, 2018 at 4:04 am

I loved hearing Obama brilliantly urge us all to VOTE and retake our power of the people!

Abraham Rivera · September 8, 2018 at 4:05 am

Trump will win in 2020, seriously who can democrats put up who can beat him

Ulf Åman · September 8, 2018 at 4:06 am

in Obamas defence, him working across the isle was a serious try to make reforms stick, he knew that if he couldn't get republicans to support some of his ideas they could get torn up as the leadership shifted which is what has happened. to all of his ideas since the republicans took office

Heather Huber · September 8, 2018 at 4:08 am

5:55 I love it.. Trump rallys should all start with a 15 minute nap 😆

mark haas · September 8, 2018 at 4:10 am

Growth under Trump is at 4.1% after just two years as President. Some economists say it will be 4.6% at the end of the 3rd quarter. And unemployment is the lowest in U.S. history. Under Obama, growth averaged just 1.6%. It was starting to rise slightly at the end of his final term , but now he actually has the nerve to take credit for Trump's surging economy? It just shows how stupid he thinks his minions really are.

Chris Haynes · September 8, 2018 at 4:12 am

When obama speak and u hear dumb ass speak u b like did obama go to a private school and did dumb ass go to a special school

Deon Blue · September 8, 2018 at 4:13 am

Oh man I missed hearing Obama.

Telly Vin-a · September 8, 2018 at 4:15 am

it's hardly even fair
dissing trump is like picking on the slow kid at school

GotDRAMAbringit · September 8, 2018 at 4:16 am

Please get rid of Brett ASAP, so sick of seeing his jokie moronic face.

TRUMP ARMY · September 8, 2018 at 4:18 am

So glad this guy is gone lighting up the white house in rainbow colors made America look weak and gay.

PrimalMiltos · September 8, 2018 at 4:19 am

Don't you miss all the nice things Democrats implemented, the KKK, the Jim Crow laws, lynching etc. Their legacy goes on with a new type of plantation promising milk and honey to any minority that might vote for them. The Democrats are great company to be with especially the BLM and Antifa fascists, the muslim US hater Obama, assassin Hillary, raper Bill, creepy Joe Biden, pervert Anthony Weiner, insane Elizabeth Warren, retarded Maxine Waters, etc. etc..

Chaz Bennett · September 8, 2018 at 4:20 am

OBAMAs Neoliberalism helped Make Trump. Obama is a self proclaimed 80s Moderate Republican.
