I think people need to stop confusing Obama the person with Obama the Administration. POTUS doesn't have full reign over all aspects of gov't. It's a system. And unfortunately the political system is about a lot of give and take. Ex: Obama would've never gotten a second term if he PUBLICally supported LGBT rights. He freed Chelsea and Oscar in the last dying breath because that was the best political time to do so. I don't condone the drone strikes or wars but those aren't HIM, it's the shitstem

right. you do know obama has signed off on drone strikes unapproved by congress before?? I know what this message is tiptoeing around and before you like go to sleep thinking that what you said is reason enough to excuse any president for the actions they support, you should know that Obama–not congress, not the entirety of DC, not your ‘system’–but Obama and Obama’s admin expanded the unchecked powers that will now be handed down to Donald Trump. It was Obama’s era that reigned in the overwhelming surveillance we have rn. it was obama’s own go-ahead that allowed so many of the barriers that exist to protect our privacy to be lifted. i get what you’re trying to say, and sometimes it’s true. but like please stop acting like obama was tied to a chair for 8 years in the oval office and was water-boarded into signing things by the ‘shitstem’.

and like. please reevaluate the shit you’re saying about “he freed chelsea because it’s the right time for HIM to do it politically (:” obama wasn’t about to win a third term because he can’t, so why not free her then?? why not let go of oscar then?? please reflect on what you’re saying.

it’s just like…whenever i call trump out on being misogynistic, racist, ableist, bigoted, etc. his supporters don’t even deny it they just straight up use slurs and threats as if that makes me wrong, and they only prove my point?? like good job buddy, u calling me a dirty farmer c*nt or wanting me to get raped by trump and then killed don’t make the things i say any less true or you any better of a person

Just when I started to lose interest in Empire , Power , OITNB , Blackish , Scandal and Being Mary Jane.

If you ever, EVER need the motivation to make it through the day today, our favorite dumplings of Hamilton are giving us kind words of strength to make it through.

This numb feeling isn’t going away anytime soon, but we can’t give up. For the next generation, our generation can’t give in to the hate that made him win the campaign. We all most start loving one another. We must make his supporters see that this will not bring us down but pull us together.

Obama has done so much to make everyone feel equal and like themselves in the past eight years as president and now we have someone who is having a fucking rape case studied next week.

For those who follow me, and for those who don’t, we must live. Throw your head high in the face of ignorance. Stare them down when they choose to resort to childish behaviour. Let’s not give them what they want.

We have to hold each other closer than before now.

We can do it.

For the person who re-blogged one of my posts about ManChildTrump, and claimed that despite having no previous experience, Ronald Reagan was a great President.

And, by the way, Reagan served as Governor of California before he became POTUS.
