And Obama begged millennials to vote:
.@BarackObama calls out millennials: “Look at your phone to see where you can vote. Look at you phone to see where you can get involved.” Tells them to talk to friends, knock on doors. “Change will happen. Hope will happen.” Taps the podium three times. And he’s out. pic.twitter.com/d3Id8zvw5L

If that sounds familiar, it should. President Obama made similar pleas in 2016, but then it was black voters and a metaphorical Cousin Pookie who wouldn’t get off the couch:
"I need you to call up Cousin Pookie and say 'Pookie – it’s time to vote," @POTUS urges crowd to get friends and family to the polls.

Note the date of this tweet — election day 2016. Cousin Pookie stayed home:
It looks like Cousin Pookie didn't get off the couch.

And now it’s “slacktavists, millennials and noshow voters” that are the keys to Dem victory in November?
