Harry Reid: ‘I’ve Shed Tears’ Over Picture of Obama

Harry Reid, who infamously hailed Obama as a “light-skinned” African-American “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one,” reveals that he keeps a picture of President Obama in his office that has brought him to tears on more than one occasion. The photograph shows a young African-American boy sitting on the president’s lap as the president bends over to let the boy touch his hair. “Feels like mine,” the boy said, according to Reid.

Reid notes that the president inscribed the picture, “This is the change we’ve worked to make possible.” “I’ve shed tears over that picture more than once,” he says.
