Watch: Obama Delivers Barn Burning Speech Reminding Democrats That ‘Hope Spreads’ (Full Video)

The crowd did not stop cheering and applauding during former President Barack Obama's barn-burning speech in Florida Friday afternoon. For more than 50 minutes President Obama reminded Democrats how an inspiring president makes them feel, and urged them to vote for Andrew Gillum for governor, and to re-elect Senator Bill Nelson.

President Obama did not mince words or hold back, and although he did not mention President Trump by name, his criticisms were clearly directed toward the current Oval Office occupant.

"Why is it that the folks that won the last election are so mad all the time?" Obama asked rally-goers. "When I won the presidency, at least my side felt pretty good."

Obama called Trump outmatches for his lies, reminding Americans the effect they have on children.

And he mocked Trump for sending troops to the border over the holidays in a "stunt" before the midterm elections.

Here's the full video. Notice the grace with which Obama handled a few hecklers at the beginning of his speech.
