Sean Hannity said Thursday that the eclipse of former President Barack Obama’s funeral for the late Congressman John Lewis was a “divisive, politically charged, and frankly, occasionally, soulful speech filled with untrue statements or reality “.
In his speech, Obama recalled Lewis’ failed efforts as a leader of the civil rights movement as he issued a political call to action.

At one point, Obama referred to George Floyd’s death in police custody in Minneapolis, the Trump administration sent in federal agents to deal with violent protesters and demonstrators, as well as the challenges of mail-order voting during this upcoming “urgent”; election.
“Today, we witness with our own eyes police officers kneeling on the necks of black Americans,” Obama said. “George Wallace may be missing, but we can testify that our federal government is sending agents to use tear gas and batons against peaceful demonstrators.”
In response, Hannity played footage of demonstrators attacking law enforcement officers in Portland and Seattle and asked if they were, “the so-called peaceful protesters that Obama is talking about?”
Obama also said: “We may no longer need to guess the number of jellies in a jar in order to cast a ballot, but even as we sit here, there are those in power who are doing their best. to discourage people from voting by closing polling stations and targeting minorities and students with restrictive identity laws and attacking our voting rights with surgical precision, even damaging the Postal Service on the eve of an election that will depend on ballots mail so that people do not get sick. “

“In an effort to destroy President Trump and his supporters, Obama said many things that are simply inaccurate and not true,” Hannity claimed.
“Every two years, every four years, the Democratic Party, the book of games remains the same. They divide America. [into] old versus young, rich versus poor and play the race card ”.
