In response to the violence in Charlottesville over the weekend—spurred by white supremacists, no matter what Trump thinks—Barack Obama shared a quote from Nelson Mandela on Twitter. It is now the most liked tweet ever.
That’s a fact.
It was a set of three messages, though the first had an image of the 44th, and last real President of the United States, playfully interacting with kids that could easily be an OG Benetton ad.
“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion … People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love … For love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite,” tweeted Obama, quoting the former South African president.
Still and always Presidential.
