Rosario Dawson Thinks Tweeting Would Have Made Obama A Better President

April 2, 2016 / Posted by:

This is an election year. Have you heard? There’s going to be a new elected come November and up ’til then we’re going to continue to have people yell at us and rally us and have to endure watching an orange tub of lard talk about very expensive walls. And then, finally someone new will sit in that swivel chair in the house painted white and realise what a headache it is to run a country. We’re also lucky enough to have people, well, celebrities!, to give us their supremely important opinions, thoughts and ideas on the nominees and the dog eat dog world of politics! The rising star of the Bernie Sanders campaign is without a doubt Rosario Dawson.

Not only does Rosario love Bernie, she also like really totally super loves Twitter. At a Bernie rally on Friday, via Mashable, Rosario gave her cold hard truth about Obama and his presidency:

They all organized and they thought that they had their guy, their one person. But within two months of him becoming President, people lost faith. And to his due credit – Twitter only just had its ten-year anniversary – I don’t think he really fully appreciated the organizing that was possible that could continue after getting the seat. To say that was all obstructionism is a complete fallacy because he had presented to the House. So he lost that afterwards because he didn’t continue with the momentum that got him there.

This didn’t sit well with a number of people at the rally. One lady said, “We don’t all think alike. I don’t believe that the obstructionism is a fallacy.” And another said, “I think that a lot of those people went in with high, unrealistic expectations and were the ones who thought [Obama] dropped the ball.” Of course Rosario took to twitter after the whole thing to defend what she said and you can see it here – be warned, it’s LONG. Although super dumbed down, the take away from all this is that she thinks Obama should have tweeted more. Modern world, modern president? Is that what you mean, Rosario? I think it’s more complicated than Twitter, but good for her being out there and trying to change the world or some shit. My political views can be summed up with this:
