Obama takes jab at Trump during Lewis eulogy

During his eulogy for the late Rep. John Lewis, former President Barack Obama received a standing ovation for his remarks about voting rights ahead of the 2020 election.

“What a gift John Lewis was,” said former President Barack Obama, standing before the congressman’s coffin in Ebenezer Baptist Church on Thursday.

And what a gift Obama was on this day, delivering the eulogy for his friend and hero. He acknowledged the great debt we all owe to Lewis, praised “his forceful vision of freedom,” and reminded us of the hard work we need to do to resume America’s faltering march toward a more perfect union.
“Bull Connor may be gone,” Obama said, “but today we witness with our own eyes police officers kneeling on the necks of Black Americans. George Wallace may be gone, but we can witness our federal government sending agents to use tear gas and batons against peaceful demonstrators.”

The former President described how he first met the congressman as a law student, when he told Lewis he was one of his heroes.

When Obama was elected to the US Senate, he told the Congressman that he stood on his shoulders, and when he was elected the first Black president, he hugged him and said his victory had been made possible only by the sacrifices Lewis made.
