President Obama Releases Statement on Robin Williams' Death

President Obama has released a statement on the passing of beloved actor Robin Williams, who died from an apparent suicide on Monday (August 11).

Robin Williams was an airman, a doctor, a genie, a nanny, a president, a professor, a bangarang Peter Pan, and everything in between. But he was one of a kind. He arrived in our lives as an alien – but he ended up touching every element of the human spirit,” the statement began.

“He made us laugh. He made us cry,” Barack continued. “He gave his immeasurable talent freely and generously to those who needed it most – from our troops stationed abroad to the marginalized on our own streets. The Obama family offers our condolences to Robin’s family, his friends, and everyone who found their voice and their verse thanks to Robin Williams.”

Barack Obama Arrives in Brussels Amid Calls for Impeachment

Barack Obama waves to the cameras while arriving at the military airport to attend the G7 Summit on Wednesday (June 4) in Melsbroek, Brussels.

The President of the United States is stepping out after some of his right-wing critics have called for him to be impeached after he freed five Taliban commanders from the Guantánamo Bay prison to release prisoner of war Sergeant Robert Bergdahl.

The reason why they are calling for the U.S. House of Representatives to file articles of impeachment is that he reportedly did not give Congress thirty days notice before releasing the prisoners from Guantánamo Bay.

WHAT IS YOUR STANCE on the situation?

President Obama Gets Honored at USC Shoah Foundation's 20th Anniversary Gala!

Barack Obama hits the stage to give a speech while attending the USC Shoah Foundation’s 20th Anniversary Gala on Wednesday (May 7) at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Century City, Calif.

The 52-year-old President of the United States was joined at the event by Octavia Spencer, Samuel L. Jackson, Liam Neeson, Rita Wilson, Jessica Capshaw, Christa Miller, and Steven Spielberg, who introduced Obama before accepting his Shoah Foundation’s Ambassador of Humanity Award.

“I have this remarkable title right now — President of the United States — and yet every day when I wake up, and I think about young girls in Nigeria or children caught up in the conflict in Syria — when there are times in which I want to reach out and save those kids — and having to think through what levers, what power do we have at any given moment,” President Obama said during his speech. “I think, ‘drop by drop by drop,’ that we can erode and wear down these forces that are so destructive; that we can tell a different story.”

“And because of your work — because of your work, Steven, and the work of all who supported you — our children, and their children, and their children’s children will hear from the survivors, but they’ll also hear from the liberators, the Righteous Among the Nations. And because of your work, their stories, years and decades from now, will still be wearing down bigotry, and eroding apathy, and opening hearts, drop by drop by drop.”
