Wow, Obama is just the definition of class. He has recently been fighting one of the worst instances of corporate greed and environmental destruction in American history. And now he is standing up for even those who defiantly oppose him.
Compare that to Trump, say, who sometimes throws out even his own supporters from his rallies just because they are black. At a recent rally for Hillary, Obama was speaking when an elderly man held up a pro-Trump sign. The crowd began booing loudly, and Obama very seriously asked them to stop.
“Everybody sit down and be quiet for a second,” he said. “Now listen up, I’m serious. Listen up!” Obama defended the Trump supporter as an “older gentleman who is supporting his candidate” and “not doing nothing” to disrupt the event. “This is what I mean about folks not being focused,” he continued. “First of all, we live in a country that respects free speech. Second of all, it looks like maybe he might have served in our military and we have to respect that. Third of all, he was elderly and we have to respect our elders. And fourth of all, don’t boo, vote!”
