Obama: ‘Not Everything’s Supposed to be Inspiring,’ Voting for Hillary ‘One of the Things You’ve Got To Do’

During an interview with Rev. Al Sharpton broadcast on Friday’s edition of MSNBC’s “All In,” President Obama stated that you can’t claim to care about issues like healthcare and criminal justice reform “and then suggest somehow that you’re feeling cynical” and “not everything’s supposed to be inspiring. Sometimes you just do what you have to do, and one of the things you’ve got to do right now is to make sure to vote for Hillary Clinton.”

Obama said, “[T]he main thing that I’ve been trying to explain to people is that, if you supported me in ’08, if you supported me in ’12, if you think that I’ve done a good job, if you believe that Michelle has done a good job, everything that we’ve done over the last eight years will be reversed with a Trump presidency, and everything will be sustained and built on with a Hillary Clinton presidency.”

He continued, “So, this vote is as important as any of those other two votes in being able to maintain a progressive agenda that keeps 20 million people with health insurance, and hopefully gets the next 20 million, that makes sure that we’re working on issues like criminal justice reform, and somebody who actually wants to see a reinvigorated civil rights office in the Justice Department, that wants to make sure that things like early childhood education get put in place so that our young people can all get the benefits of a great education, at the earliest stages, all the way through college. You can’t say you care about those things, and then suggest somehow that you’re feeling cynical or you’re not sufficiently inspired.”

Obama concluded, “Michelle and I we talk over the dinner table, we explained to our daughters, you know, not everything’s supposed to be inspiring. Sometimes you just do what you have to do, and one of the things you’ve got to do right now is to make sure to vote for Hillary Clinton.”
