Joining Oprah Winfrey on Apple TV+'s 'The Oprah Conversation,' the former president discussed the meaning behind his memoir 'A Promised Land' and reflected on his presidency.
Former President Barack Obama described the Sandy Hook shooting as the "saddest day" of his presidency but, he said, "when Congress failed to do anything in the aftermath," it also became "the angriest" he ever was.
"I was disgusted and appalled by the inaction. You had parents who just lost their children sitting in front of senators and asking them for very modest reasonable approaches. This wasn't some radical agenda," Obama told Oprah Winfrey in a hour-plus episode of The Oprah Conversation that debuted on Apple TV+ on Tuesday. "It was all viewed as politics as opposed to this human moment we should've been able to respond to as a society."
