NO LIES TOLD! Barack Obama Criticizes Trump’s Handling Of The Pandemic During Class 2020 Commencement Speech

​ ​ ​ ​

Forever president delivered a commencement speech for the Class of 2020 and made sure to take aim at the way the Trump administration has been handling the pandemic. See that speech, plus his speech to HBCU students inside….

It’s graduation season and since graduates can’t physically walk across the stage to receive their diploma, the virtual commencement events have kicked off.

Last night, Forever President Barack Obama delivered a speech to the graduating class of 2020 for the "Graduate Together: America Honors the High School Class of 2020" virtual event. The event aired on several networks, including CNN, ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC, YouTube, TikTok, Facebook, California Music Channel, ESPN, The CW, Fox Business Network, Fox News Channel, Twitter, Freeform, MSNBC, Univision and over a dozen other outlets and platforms, to celebrate the graduating class of 2020.

During his speech, he made sure to let the world know exactly how he felt about the way the Trump administration is handling the Coronavirus pandemic without mentioning Trump’s name. And he delivered his thoughts, straight talk, no chaser.

“Doing what feels good, what’s convenient, what’s easy, that’s how little kids think, “ he said during his speech. “Unfortunately, a lot of so-called grownups with fancy titles and important jobs still think that way,” he continued.

“That’s why things are so screwed up,” he said. Our forever president noted the pandemic “pulled back the curtain” on the flailing response to COVID-19 and that it proves why the old ways of handling things just won’t work any longer. He noted how Trump doesn’t have all the answers and he’s “not evening asking the right questions.”
