The Great Divider Becomes Irrelevant

These are the days that I've been waiting for.  The time when our Great Divider President finally becomes irrelevant.  He apperard on The Daily Show last night, which I'm led to believe is on a comedy channel.  Evidently the Fake News channels (ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, and CNN) don't want him taking up valuable air time.  They'd rather talk about what a threat Donald Trump is becoming.

And, of course, the Great Divider was talking about how horribly racist the US has become under his presidency.
"But that it is not the only factor in so many aspects of our lives, that we have, by no means overcome the legacies of slavery and Jim Crow and colonialism and racism, but that the progress we've made has been real and extraordinary, if I'm communicating my genuine belief that those who are not subject to racism can sometimes have blind spots or lack of appreciation of what it feels to be on the receiving end of that, but that doesn't mean that they're not open to learning and caring about equality and justice and that I can win them over because there is goodness in the majority of people."
When he's got nothing else to say, he falls back on racism.  Or, as Jon Gabriel so succinctly observed.

Just go away, Mr. Obama.  That might be the best service that you ever offer to our country.
