ABTV Politics On TikTok

It’s been a whirlwind few days. We learned about “OBAMAGATE”, President Trump stormed off from a press conference and the nation has been gripped by the case of Ahmaud Arbery, a young unarmed black man killed while jogging in what many believe constitutes a hate crime. TikTok tackles these subjects with humor, anger and empathy – the platform is showing its versatility.

On OBAMAGATE, Sarah Cooper @whatchugotforme

delivers another hilarious, perfect performance:

YouTuber The Ghost @the.ghost.88 was all of us when he first heard of OBAMAGATE – check out his reaction here:  

@the.ghost.88

Sometimes the news of the day does all the work TikTok doesn’t have to. NowThisPolitics @NowThisPolitics brings us this clip prior to President Trump abruptly ending a press conference after he was challenged by a pair of female reporters. In this exchange, President Trump becomes agitated at the suggestion that he asked an Asian American reporter to “ask China” because of her ethnicity. Check out the exchange and draw your own conclusions – and maybe put those conclusions on TikTok:

User Jordan Shambry @jordanssaraiah expressed much of the raw emotion many are feeling from the recent killing of Ahmaud Arbery in this TikTok. Fair warning, it does show part of the incident in the video: 

Warning: Graphic

In another moving video Enrique Toscano @enri_what18 captures moments of the “Run for Ahmaud” movement. Joggers took to the streets around the country for a 2.23 mile run for Ahmaud on what would have been his 26th birthday.
