Obama tells graduates, ‘Doing what feels good, what’s convenient, what’s easy, that’s how little kids think.’

Former President Barack Obama gave a virtual commencement address to graduating high school seniors across the country Saturday night during a televised event hosted by NBA star LeBron James.

It was part of a special called “Graduate Together: America Honors the High School Class of 2020” that included appearances by numerous musical stars, celebrities and athletes, including the Jonas Brothers, Megan Rapinoe, Pharrell Williams, Maren Morris and Malala Yousafzai.

“Doing what feels good, what’s convenient, what’s easy, that’s how little kids think,” Obama said. “Unfortunately a lot of so-called grownups, including some with fancy titles, important jobs, still think that way, which is why things are so screwed up.”
