President Obama is a beloved part of American history because, for the eight short years he was president, the country felt like it had a leader who actually cared about them. Obama cried with us when our children died from gun violence. Trump gave a scripted speech on how mental illness was to blame and not the actual weapon used for the slaughter.

Obama endured much hatred from conservatives about things like “date night” and the tan suit scandal, but he never wavered. He certainly never got on Twitter to whine about how mistreated he was.

So when Obama showed up to Elijah Cummings’ funeral Friday morning, everyone knew they were in for a treat, and so was Mr. Cummings.

To head Obama speak is a delight, and to hear him eulogize such a pivotal figure in American history is an honor.

According to NPR:

“Cummings served 14 years in the Maryland House of Delegates. During that time he became the first black person in the state’s history to be named Speaker Pro Tempore. After being elected to Congress in 1996 via special election, he held that seat until his death last week.”

Watch Obama embrace Cummings’ widow at his funeral:

NPR continues:

“If there were any doubts about the indelible legacy the late civil rights advocate and Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings left in his nearly 40 years of public service, look no further than the political luminaries who will deliver tributes at his funeral in Baltimore Friday.”
