Sean Hannity said on Thursday that former President Barack Obama’s funeral praise for the late Congressman John Lewis was “divisive, politically charged and, frankly, at times a boring speech filled with statements that are not based on truth or reality.”
In his speech, Obama recalled Lewis’s hard-working efforts as a leader of the civil rights movement as he made a political call to action.

Obama also said: “We may no longer have to guess the number of jellyfish in a jar to vote, but even as we sit here, there are those in power who are doing their best to prevent people from voting by closing polls. and targeting minorities and students with restrictive ID card laws and attacking our voting rights with surgical precision, even undermining the postal service in the course of elections that will depend on mail ballots to keep people from getting sick. “

“In an effort to exterminate President Trump and his supporters, Obama has said many things that are simply factually inaccurate and untrue,” Haniti said.
“Every two years, every four years, the Democratic Party, the notebook stays the same. They divide America [into] old vs. young, rich vs. poor and play the racing card. “
