Barack Obama on Tuesday called out President Donald Trump’s widely criticized handling of the coronavirus pandemic, urging voters to “demand better of our government.”

“We’ve seen all too terribly the consequences of those who denied warnings of a pandemic,” Obama tweeted. “We can’t afford any more consequences of climate denial. All of us, especially young people, have to demand better of our government at every level and vote this fall,” he added.

Obama did not mention Trump by name in the tweet.
Maybe he was talking about his own feckless response to H1N1.

The worst president in history talking as if he has anything worth saying now that is hilarious.
The classless punk can’t follow normal precedent of es Presidents not commenting on current Presidents.

Absolutely no class.

“These are times when the American people look for leaders. Leaders don’t whine. Leaders don’t blame." Trump is severely unqualified And my years with Obama while not great ,were good years and he left a far better economy to dump than he was given by repub gwb
Leaders don't blame? Guess that omits Obama...dumbass.

"And again, when you have 15 people, and the 15 within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero, that’s a pretty good job we’ve done."

“And so, if we could hold that down, as we’re saying, to 100,000 – it’s a horrible number, maybe even less, but to 100,000, so we have between 100 [thousand] and 200,000 – we altogether have done a very good job.

It's important to remember no matter what happens, and no matter what he did or didn't do, Trump is doing a good job!

Um, Trump bashed Barry while running for, and being, President. You have a short memory. Barry bashed Bush during his campaign, and blamed him for anything that went wrong during his entire 8 year regime.

You lose.

Actually he is showing his usual lack of self awareness. He talks about global warming as it is called now because climate change fell through. But he is so worried about it that he bought a multi million dollar mansion that is supposed to be underwater. So either he knows the climate stuff is bull or he isn't smart enough to understand that being underwater is not a good thing.
I tend to think it is lack of intelligence.

Easy to see why you didn't just post the article. It does not support your point of view very well and even mentions trump attempting blame Obama. Just for clarity, here is what you are bitching about:

Barack Obama Takes Rare Public Swipe At Donald Trump Over Coronavirus Response
The former president urged voters to “demand better of our government.”

By Lee Moran

Former President Barack Obama on Tuesday called out President Donald Trump’s haphazard handling of the coronavirus pandemic, urging voters to “demand better of our government.”
“We’ve seen all too terribly the consequences of those who denied warnings of a pandemic,” Obama tweeted. “We can’t afford any more consequences of climate denial. All of us, especially young people, have to demand better of our government at every level and vote this fall,” he added.
Obama, who has rarely attacked Trump since leaving office in 2016, did not mention the current U.S. leader by name in the tweet.
Trump has been fiercely criticized for downplaying the threat of the virus for weeks while his administration dithered. He has previously called climate change a “hoax” and his administration has pursued an anti-environment agenda.
Trump has also sought to blame Obama for his own government’s botched response to the public health crisis that has sickened more than 188,000 people in the U.S. and killed upwards of 4,000. The U.S. now has more confirmed coronavirus cases than any other country in the world.
Obama linked to a Los Angeles Times article documenting the Trump White House’s rollback of Obama-era fuel economy standards with his tweet.

After actually reading it, I'm not too sure what is wrong with it, unless pointing out how long it took him to get around to it, since he rarely comments or criticizes the sitting POTUS.
I don't get it What am I bitching about?? I wanted to show to the red crowd here how a real man like Obama is handles a bad situation,,,Just what do you think my point of view is?
Those are fives...a "real" man.

Bottom line, The Trump/Pence team is handling this virus attack as well as anyone could possibly handle it.
That is far from clear. We won’t know this with any certainty for a long time.

One thing that is for certain, Trump’s attempts to downplay the risk early on were clearly misguided.

joaquin Too bad republicans have short memories
Not so much short as just plain bad. They can remember things that didn't happen from years ago.
You mean like Biden remembering getting arrested while trying to visit Mandela? Or him remembering his corn pop.
Or are you talking about 44 and him visiting all 57 states?

China travel ban: Jan 31. What were the asshat Dimsocialist doing then? Their fake impeachment.
Then at the beginning of March, the commies were trying to pass a bill to stop Trump's travel bans, and even rescind his first one.

One could say misguided. But you could also claim that leaders like Churchill were misguided when he kept saying that the U.K. would persevere. You could say that JFK was misguided when he claimed we would go to the moon.

Should Churchill have told them that we can't win?
Should JFK have said we have no real idea how to get to the moon because we have never done it and we don't have the technology?

If Churchill had said the Nazis are totally under control as they marched into Paris, he would have been thrown out of office immediately.

There’s a difference between being inspiring confidence and downplaying.
