WATCH: Obama claims Republicans are “trying to systematically prevent ordinary citizens from making their voices heard”

Speaking at an event in Richmond, VA for Democrat gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe, former President Obama said “We don’t have time to be wasted on these phony trumped-up culture wars, this fake outrage, the right-wing media’s pedals to juice their ratings.”

Obama also said “All across the country, Democrats are trying to make it easier to vote […] and push back on Republicans who are trying to systematically prevent ordinary citizens from making their voices heard.”
