Obama Blasts ‘Demagogues’ at Ohio Political Rally
“Vote Vote VOTE!” — is overall a much better political chant for rallies than “Lock her up.”
CLEVELAND — Former President Barack Obama on Thursday decried “demagogues who promise simple fixes to complicated problems” — an implicit but clear rebuke to his successor, President Donald Trump, whom Obama suggested is regularly violating political norms and threatening basic democratic institutions.
At a packed campaign rally on behalf of Richard Cordray, Ohio’s Democratic candidate for governor, Obama implored supporters to vote in the midterm elections on November 6. “You’ve got to vote, that’s why I’m here” he said, leading the crowd in a chant of “Vote, vote, vote.”
