Don’t forget to remind your family and friends that Barack Obama is making a commencement speech to the graduating class of 2020 tonight. Some networks and media sites are carrying it. The contrast between the former president and the current one will be stark and unmistakable. Thus the speech to a national audience will be a political event, even if that isn’t its intention. Obama will likely mention the devastating and deadly impacts of a pandemic as well as the growing crisis of governance that exists, as a result of lies, decisions, and actions of Trump and his Republican enablers.
