This Isn’t Normal #1

I flagged this yesterday but here Deadspin or whoever put together this video has put the two segments together.

What this montage leaves out is the part where Obama keeps saying “Hold up! Hold up!”. But as you can very clearly see in this video he’s saying that to his supporters in the crowd who are trying to shout the protester down with a Hillary chant.

As I said yesterday, this contrast reminds you who these men are and maybe who you are.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
