Barack Obama speaks out on politics, life in the White House, and Donald Trump

In his first television interview since the election of Joe Biden as the 46th President, former President Barack Obama sits down with "CBS This Morning" co-host Gayle King to discuss the first volume of his memoirs, "A Promised Land." He talks about the enormous opposition he experienced as he entered the White House; the impact of his political career on his family; and why he campaigned for his former vice president – and spoke out so vociferously against his successor, President Donald Trump.

Presidents come and go and you still see the same faces in congress and senate. See a problem here?
political video comment sections are the most cursed a comment section can get

“A Promised Land” live up to the promise of being an inimitable pleasure trip through an unexplored path through a hidden landscape of what we call as USA. Wonderfully written, sincere and nuanced, with all Obama's selflessness and accuracy. Obama's word is straightforward, simple to understand, yet full of the fragrances of education. As an outsider, I Believe that his America is exactly what America be supposed to be and is also the America that I visualized in my mind. He is in fact one of the brightest alumni of Harvard
From the Preface to 1st chapter bring out the spirit of a noble mind, genuinely caring man who wants to make an optimistic change in his life time and world we exist in. The phrases and portraits indicate who he really is as a genuine human being. As you go through the book , you can listen to Obama's voice and expression clearly. it seems he is speaking exactly to the reader with thoroughly Selected words.
This book, and Michelle Obama’s book, overall are the two most inspiring volumes I have ever read out. Let us pray that upcoming Presidents have as much civility, morality, integrity and moral judgement, motivation for good! There is no wonder that it’s a no.1 Bestseller Book!
It's an remarkable book. Nothing more needs to be said than this. I definitely recommend it to each and every person. and I am sure that u will not be disappointed after purchasing this incredible book. if u want to buy book online from amazon here is the link ( Amazon affilaite site)
It is truely a shame that that some politicians care more about playing sides than doing what it right.

Obama's book had a subtitle: "The Promised Land ... How It worked for
me" .... His net worth is now estimated at $240 million mainly coming
from his conferences and books on "income inequality". I wonder how
much of it they got in New Orleans.
