"We thought it was important to find a setting where President Obama can make a cogent argument outside of the candidate-specific stump speeches coming this fall", Schultz said in an email.

"It shouldn't be Democratic or Republican to say that we don't threaten the freedom of the press because they say things or publish stories we don't like".

The former president is following up his address by campaigning tomorrow with Democratic candidates running to flip Republican House seats in Southern California's Orange County, a traditionally conservative-leaning area where Republicans are at risk of losing several House seats. He aims to criticize Trump without giving up his own post-partisan stature as a president emeritus, which he has publicly embraced in a series of events with former Republican President George W. Bush. "I found that he's very, very good for sleeping".

Obama took Trump to task by saying he's played on voters' fears and crafted divisive policies.

Obama's remarks signaled he would not pull any punches in taking on Trump, who Obama has studiously avoided attacking by name after handing him the keys to the presidency in January of 2017. The speech, which can be viewed live below, is taking place at the University of IL at Urbana-Champaign, and is expected to have many Democratic Senators and Congressmen in attendance, including Senator Dick Durbin (D) of IL. "And we're sure as heck supposed to stand up clearly and unequivocally to Nazi sympathizers!"

Obama has largely stayed out of the everyday political fray, but his speech was the first of a series he is expected during the midterms.

Democrats' Rage Puts Kavanaugh In Clearer Light
In another consequential exchange, Kavanaugh would not say if a president was legally obligated to comply with a subpoena. But Kavanaugh's nomination languished for three years, as Democrats fumed over his participation in Bush's recount team.

Former President Barack Obama issued a scorching critique of his successor Friday, blasting President Donald Trump's pattern of pressuring the Justice Department, his policies and reminding voters that the economic recovery - one of Trump's favorite talking points - began on his watch. "We are Americans. We're supposed to stand up to bullies, not follow them", he said to applause. "It did not start with Donald Trump", he said.

To hear Ben Shapiro tell it, Obama's speech was too much of a lecture.

Republicans, and many naïve journalists, liked to attribute the hysterical right-wing backlash against Barack Obama to a sudden upsurge in fiscal conservatism. Republicans passed a tax bill that exploded the deficit by $1.5 trillion, Obama noted.

Sen. John Kyl to be named John McCain's replacement
Kyl, incidentally, is leading the process through the Senate for President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh . Ducey has said he would wait until after McCain's funeral to appoint the late senator's replacement.

Obama is re-entering the public eye two months before voters head to the polls for the midterm elections on November 6.
