Obama defines what it means to be ‘honorable; ‘You are not a sucker to have integrity’

President Obama delivered a powerful eulogy during funeral services for Rep. Elijah Cummings Friday morning, highlighting the congressman’s unique honor and integrity.

“There is nothing weak about kindness and compassion. There is nothing weak about looking out for others. There is nothing weak about being honorable. You are not a sucker to have integrity and to treat others with respect,” Obama said during his remarks.

The former president added that while the official title “honorable” is conferred on “all kinds of people” who get elected to public office, Cummings was different because he was honorable before serving in Congress.

“There’s a difference,” Obama said. “There is a difference if you are honorable and treated others honorably outside the limelight, on the side of a road.”
