Donald Trump has been on a Twitter rampage, and we’re pretty sure we know what set off the thin-skinned president. Former President Barack Obama held a private phone call with members of the Obama Alumni Association, in which he tore into Trump’s appallingly slow response to the national crisis and vowed to campaign hard for Democratic presumptive nominee Joe Biden. Trump is devoid of empathy, but when it comes to being criticized, that’s when he lashes out.
Trump has been blasting his predecessor daily since he got into office. It’s a pathetic display as he’s even blamed Obama for “broken tests” for the coronavirus that didn’t exist on his watch.
Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell took aim at Obama during an interview with Lara Trump to say he “should have kept his mouth shut,” and called the former president “classless.”

That didn’t go down well at all.
Mitch is not the one to talk about classless behavior, speaking out of turn or breaking norms.
Mitch McConnell is a dried up politician with no semblance of decency.
Mitch McConnell will be defeated and can then shut up once and for all.

The man is a walking hypocrisy. Every point he makes is something he or his party have just recently done. Trump ripping Obama from day one, pandemic playbook ignored, to say nothing of the SC Justice nomination that he’s already said he will allow if one becomes available.

I still haven’t heard one Republican clearly say what Obama actually did wrong.

Moscow Mitch is the most classless evil politician to ever walk the halls of Congress.

We literally left them a 69-page Pandemic Playbook…. that they ignored
And an office called the Pandemic Preparedness Office… that they abolished.
And a global monitoring system called PREDICT .. that they cut by 75% https://t.co/OD94v0UI4n

Obama’s phone call was leaked, and if he had done absolutely nothing after more than one hundred thousand Americans had died from COVID-19, then that would mean he was as devoid of feelings for others as Trump is. Trump was handed a healthy economy from his predecessor, but that’s gone now. Tens of millions of Americans are now unemployed. Obama is trying to do something because he loves this country.
