Obama slams Trump’s ’what’s in it for me’ worldview on COVID-19

Barack Obama, during a private call on Friday with former aides, slammed the Trump admins response to the COVID-19 crisis. ’It has been an absolute chaotic disaster when that mindset of ’what’s in it for me’ and ’to heck with everybody else’ ...is operationalized in our government’, he said on a call with the Obama Alumni Association. Obama previously called out a lack of ’coherent national plan’.

He really has no room to talk. If I were him I’d be trying to keep my name out of the news considering I just got caught using the FBI to falsely imprison Mike Flynn.

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Saturday dismissed the criticism from Obama, saying in a statement to CNN: "President Trump's coronavirus response has been unprecedented and saved American lives." She’s right, it is unprecedented. Very poor and lacks direction, but unprecedented.

That's calling the pot kettle black. this guy didn't do anything until 1200 people have died thanks Obama. At least Trump did something after one person died let me repeat that one person died he was on control

Once again, no one is able to tell me how exactly Trumps response was terrible, my opinion has been he’s handled this very well. Even if it is possible that he could have done something differently, I don’t believe that any Democrat could have handled it better. They opposed all the travel bans and have opposed Trump on EVERY SINGLE ISSUE since he’s been elected. Certainly every single thing he’s done hasn’t been terrible. So when the Dems wanna cry orange man bad on every issue, I really don’t care for their imput even if it’s true.

Obama's "coherent national plan" included abuse of power, and the destruction of race relations in America.

This coming from the president that didn't respond at all to H1N1 until we had over 1k dead and allowed an Ebola outbreak in the US... not really the best look.

Haha Obama is just scared because somebody under his administration (Dr. Fauci) gave taxpayer money to the lab in China, to study “accelerated coronavirus mutations”, in the city that the outbreak began. This was done in the last year of Obama‘s presidency. So he is not totally guilt free here, which is why he is starting early on shifting the blame. By the time everyone in the country starts to connect the dots, he wants to have already shift the narrative. Just speculation though.

Obama is just upset that this president left things to the states rather than grabbing power...ya know like how the Constitution is structured. In any case, always take anything someone who has just been accused of using government organizations to spy on political opponents with a grain of salt.

Trump saved lives. He called for a travel ban shiver China, the dems called him racist. Trump formed a task Force in January, the dems keeped going with fake impeachment. Trump DID save lives, dems in New York said there's nothing to worry about that the flu is worse. President Trump did everything correctly and the dems kept slamming him. Fuck you Democratic, lying, power hungry, pieces of shit.

This is a big story? Obama doesnt like Trump, or what Trump says, or what Trump does. Who cares what any ex-president thinks? Breaking news: Carter doesn't like Trump's COVID-19 response.

11,000 people died from Ebola. Maybe the Trump cultists are just completely oblivious but almost 80,000 have no died from covid and most states are still reporting increases in new cases and deaths after only a month.
