He’s probably just mad that Trump is a better president than him…
Democrats are so obsessed with President Donald Trump that they cannot even take time to mourn one of their friends sans taking shots at him.
But leave it to former President Obama to not only use the speech to attack President trump, but to also talk about his favorite topic. Himself.
He mentioned himself 30 times during his eulogy for the late Rep. Elijah Cummings, saying the word “I” 24 times, “me” three times and “my” three times.
Former Pres. Barack Obama at Elijah Cummings’ funeral: “I tell my daughters…being a strong man includes being kind. That there’s nothing weak about kindness and compassion. There’s nothing weak about looking out for others.” https://t.co/TlLvHGKV3j pic.twitter.com/ipGF2xH6Jh

“I remember I had the pleasure of meeting Elijah’s mother, Ruth, and she told me she prayed for me every day, and I knew it was true, and I felt better for it,” he said.
“I was thinking I would want my daughters to know how much I love them, but I would also want them to know that being a strongman includes being kind — a strong man includes being kind,” he said.
“Once during my presidency, when the economy still looked like it might plunge into depression, when the health-care bill was pronounced dead in Congress, I would watch Elijah rally his colleagues,” the former president said.
But then he decided to take some time off from talking about himself to take some thinly veiled shots at President Trump.
“There’s nothing weak about kindness and compassion,” he said to the cheers and applause of those in attendance.
“There’s nothing weak about looking out for others. There’s nothing weak about being honorable. You’re not a sucker to have integrity and to treat others with respect,” he said.
“That’s a title that we confer to all kinds of people who get elected to public office. We’re supposed to introduce them as honorable.
“But Elijah Cummings was honorable before he was elected to office. There’s a difference. There’s a difference if you were honorable and treated others honorably outside the limelight.”
But still, former President’s Obama’s speech paled in comparison to the anti-President Trump eulogy Hillary Clinton gave.
