Watch: Obama Appears in Cringeworthy Get-Out-the-Vote TikTok Video ⋆ Flag And Cross


One man’s national security threat is another’s legitimate platform to encourage American leftists to go vote, I guess.

I mean, I guess there’s only so much I can blame the Democratic Party for throwing every hail Mary they can think of to try to rescue something — anything — from the coming red wave that just seems every day to be a little bigger than it was the day before.

“Well, under the desk is kinda my thing,” Spehar said.

“Here’s the thing: You can stay for now, but when it comes time for voting you’re going to have to get up,” Obama responded. Never let it be said that the former president isn’t a master of the smooth segue.

“Because you got climate change legislation on the ballot, you got gun safety. And, when we can elect more pro-choice members of Congress, we can re-institute Roe v. Wade as the law of the land,” he said. “So, you can’t…
