You know, if Obama had bothered to at least address the rioting and violence taking place in Minneapolis in his statement we probably wouldn’t even be writing about him but since he couldn’t be bothered to call for an end to what is happening in Floyd’s name that is far from protesting here we are.
The set on this guy …
Take a look:

PS: Stop looting, setting fires, and assaulting people because you’re becoming the story instead of what happened to Floyd. Peace out.
See? If he had just added that one teeny tiny little nugget …
You do know you were president when Ferguson and Baltimore burned, right?

How soon they all forget.
I notice there are no calls for an end to the arson and looting.

Right?! C’mon, man.
How about the pain of all the people whose lives are being destroyed by this rioting?

The cynical part of this editor thinks in a way Obama is thrilled with the rioting and destruction.
It didn’t seem to bother him all that much when it happened on his watch.
If you were still president you'd have big-footed into the middle of this case and pushed the locals aside by now – just as you did in the Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case and in Ferguson. (In both of which cases, you were WRONG, BTW) Unlikely that's true here, but STFU anyway.

Start with yourself. Purge your own hatred and bigotry and stop pouring gas on these fires, like you always have.

Great. Derek Chauvin has been taken into custody. Waiting for your word salad on the 170+ businesses and livelihoods that were destroyed in the Twin Cities over the last 3 days…

Ferguson set the tone, and it happened under your watch. 99%+ are appalled by the murder that bad cop committed, and yet you are faithful to continue dividing people into opposing factions. Do you not have your Illuminati card with John Kerry yet?
