Obama knocks 'folks in charge' while discussing COVID-19 in commencement speech.
Fox News ^ | 5/16/2020 | Sam Dorman

Former President Obama took a shot at government officials in charge of responding to the coronavirus, arguing Saturday that the pandemic showed they were incompetent.

“More than anything, this pandemic has fully, finally torn back the curtain on the idea that so many of the folks in charge know what they’re doing,” Obama said. He added that “a lot of them aren’t even pretending to be in charge.”

Obama spoke on “Show Me Your Walk, HBCU [Historically Black Colleges and Universities] Edition,” a two-hour event for students graduating from historically black colleges and universities that was broadcast on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. His remarks were unexpectedly political, given the venue, and touched on current events beyond the virus and its social and economic impacts.

Although Obama didn't directly name President Trump, he has previously criticized the administration's response as plagued by selfishness.

He never went near an HBCU until he needed black votes.

“Folks” is an example of old commie lingo. It tells you who he surrounded himself with.

Oh, this was only for black students?
Pretty damned discriminating of the little fag.

Some things never change.

I despise the word 'folks.'

I didn't despise it before Obama.

His 'folk' means 'widget in the collective.'

'Folks' aren't free individuals, they are potatoes in a barrel.

Obozo should have been specific. The public will think he’s talking about the batshit crazy Democrats.

Of course the racist bastard . . literally and figuratively . .. would choose a “HBCU” audience to make these remarks

Was he talking bout white folk like Fauxi, Debbie et al along with Asians like the Communist Chinese, and blacks like WHOTeddie, Mad Maxie, Holder, et al

Although I always avoided hearing his jarring voice, during his first term he was interviewed on TV and I just happened to catch his saying something about Wall Street “fat cats.” My head snapped in a double-take because that was an expression clear out of the radical communist hand book.
