Obama talks down white privilege and tosses a bone to Trump voters in farewell speech

Obama’s speech is still going on as I publish this, and will probably go on forever, but there’s one part that I found very interesting. He actually tries to reach out to the disenfranchised poor white voter that put Trump into office. He even seems to talk down the concept of “white privilege.”

Watch below:

Obama says they need to be sympathetic to “the middle aged white guy, who, from the outside, may seem like he’s got advantages, but has seen his world upended by economic, and cultural and technological change.” Interesting huh? I doubt the people that need to hear this message will hear it.

Already liberals are applauding the speech because of the other parts that seem to subtly criticize Trump:

LOL! Sure buddy.

Ah well.
