President Tump’s predecessor, Barack Obama, has taken yet another swipe at his handling of the ongoing medical pandemic.

Trump hasn’t exactly been praised for his handling of the ongoing medical crisis.

In January, shortly after the initial outbreak, he was quizzed on his thoughts on the virus, in which he replied: “It’s one person coming in from China, and we have it under control. It’s going to be just fine.”

He remained calm, and repeatedly stressed that there was nothing to be too worried about.

And, at one point, even dubbed the virus as being a “fake news media” conspiracy.

President Trump simply wouldn’t budge from his stance on the virus and even went on to compare it to the common flu. This was perhaps one of his most dangerous and false statements about the virus, and caused plenty of outrage amongst both Americans and people all over the world.

“When people need a test, they can get a test,” he said earlier this month. “When the professionals need a test, when they need tests for people, they can get the test. It’s gone really well.” However, this certainly wasn’t the case, and millions of Americans, to this day, are still struggling to get tested for the virus.

And fast. As the number of coronavirus cases and deaths grew here in the States, people were growing increasingly more concerned with Trump’s blaze attitude regarding the pandemic.

On March 13th, mere days after he compared the pandemic to the common flu, he finally declared a national emergency.

And promised a new screening website and more drive-by medical tests.

It seems that now, President Trump is finally taking the pandemic seriously.

In a press conference last month, Trump admitted: “We have a problem that a month ago nobody ever thought about.”

And insisted that he “felt it was a pandemic long before it was declared a pandemic.”

Including, former president, Barack Obama, who chimed in on the topic last week.

Obama first tweeted about the matter…

And he didn’t hold back.

“We’ve seen all too terribly the consequences of those who denied warnings of a pandemic,” he wrote, without directly naming the president.

“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, linking to an article below announcing the rollback of environmental mileage standards put in place by the former president 8 years ago.  

Obama has yet again taken a subtle, yet pretty obvious swipe at the President’s handling of the pandemic.

In which he gave advice to a group of America’s Mayors on how to effectively be a leader throughout the pandemic.

“Speak the truth. Speak it clearly. Speak it with compassion,” he said. “Speak it with empathy for what folks are going through.” It doesn’t take a genius to see that this is definitely one of Trump’s downfalls…

“The biggest mistake any [of] us can make in these situations is to misinform, particularly when we’re requiring people to make sacrifices and take actions that might not be their natural inclination.” Burn.

It was pretty obvious that he was referring to Trump’s frequent, and rather embarrassing blunders and mistakes during his press conferences.

“The more smart people you have around you, and the less embarrassed you are to ask questions, the better your response is going to be.”
