You really can’t make this up, people.
This is a quote from Liz Jaff, “a veteran of Obama’s 2008 campaign and White House,” on what she thinks of Obama and his role in the future of the Democratic party:
"Obama is still a powerful force for the generation that grew up working for him. 'He’s our Jesus Christ.'” https://t.co/MA8Hw8cHRS

Obama is still a powerful force for the generation that grew up working for him.
“He’s our Jesus Christ. We’re crazy,” said Jaff, not without self-awareness. “It’s 10 years later, and we’re still obsessed.”
Maybe this is why they lost? If they’re literally worship Obama as a god, how could they ever put in that same effort for Hillary?
