i've heard better audio but don't have links to those. the protesters are saying,
"Mr. President: Over 4,000 peaceful protesters have been arrested while banksters continue to destroy the economy,"protesters proclaimed. "You must stop the assault on our First Amendment rights. Your silence sends a message that police brutality is acceptable. Banks got bailed out. We got sold out."

when he says "ok guys" I just thought of a parent trying to get control of unruly kids while trying not to raise his own voice....

Ew. That's the same condescending bullshit my ex-husband used to pull with me anytime I brought up something serious I wanted to talk about.

"I'll listen to you, you listen to me." I call bullshit.
