A good place to find it if you shun Facebook. I’m kind of conflicted about it. There is something noble in his “act as though you have faith and faith will be given to you” belief in America. But I gotta be honest, shared values and aspirations rhetoric at this point to me seems like a joke, introduced axiomatically even though it really no longer is. That being said, this may be the right way to play it under the circumstances (“Trump and Sessions are racists engaging in legal ethnic cleansing!” is incontrovertibly true but probably wouldn’t be helpful), but ultimately I don’t think his speaking out is going to have much impact as the ideas and rhetoric here are so familiar.

    The value here is it adds to the he said/he said inanity that passes for political reporting.  And there probably is some actual value here in that it will be another prominent, quotable voice pointing out how wrong this is.

    I think if Obama had been more blunt that would have ended up being the “narrative”.
