Desperate Obama Unleashing Bizarre and Inappropriate Attack On Trump
Barack Obama lashed out at President Donald Trump once again on Tuesday, this time targeting his handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
During a drive-in campaign rally for his former Vice President Joe Biden in Orlando, Florida, Obama let loose on his successor, holding nothing back.
“What’s his closing argument? That people are too focused on COVID,” Obama said.”He said this at one of his rallies. ‘COVID, COVID, COVID,’ he’s complaining. He’s jealous of COVID’s media coverage.”
The former president even stooped so low as to bring up the fact that President Trump, his family, and several top White House officials tested positive for coronavirus earlier this month.
“Let me say this: I lived in the White House for awhile,” Obama said at today’s rally. “You know, it’s a controlled environment. You can take some preventive measures in the White House to avoid getting sick. Except, this guy can’t seem to do it. He’s turned the White House into a hot zone.”
Obama went on to reference comments made by White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, who said on Sunday that we can’t control the virus and must instead focus on finding a vaccine.
“Listen, winter is coming,” the former president said, according to The Hill. “They’re waving the white flag of surrender. Florida, we can’t afford four more years of this.”

Obama also warned the attendees of the rally against voter apathy, saying “don’t boo, vote” over and over as the leftists tried to loudly bash Trump.
This comes as Obama has spent the past few days attacking Trump on the campaign trail for Biden, ignoring the long-standing tradition in this country that former presidents do not publicly attack their successors.
Trump fired back at Obama’s latest comments on Twitter after he learned that Fox News was broadcasting the former president’s speech.
“Now @FoxNews is playing Obama’s no crowd, fake speech for Biden, a man he could barely endorse because he couldn’t believe he won,” Trump tweeted. Also, I PREPAID many Millions of Dollars in Taxes.”

From the CDC
The (H1N1)pdm09 virus was very different from H1N1 viruses that were circulating at the time of the pandemic. Few young people had any existing immunity (as detected by antibody response) to the (H1N1)pdm09 virus, but nearly one-third of people over 60 years old had antibodies against this virus, likely from exposure to an older H1N1 virus earlier in their lives. Since the (H1N1)pdm09 virus was very different from circulating H1N1 viruses, vaccination with seasonal flu vaccines offered little cross-protection against (H1N1)pdm09 virus infection. While a monovalent (H1N1)pdm09 vaccine was produced, it was not available in large quantities until late November—after the peak of illness during the second wave had come and gone in the United States. From April 12, 2009 to April 10, 2010, CDC estimated there were 60.8 million cases (range: 43.3-89.3 million), 274,304 hospitalizations (range: 195,086-402,719), and 12,469 deaths (range: 8868-18,306) in the United States due to the (H1N1)pdm09 virus.
Since the 2009 H1N1 pandemic, the (H1N1)pdm09 flu virus has circulated seasonally in the U.S. causing significant illnesses, hospitalizations, and deaths.
Additionally, CDC estimated that 151,700-575,400 people worldwide died from (H1N1)pdm09 virus infection during the first year the virus circulated.** Globally, 80 percent of (H1N1)pdm09 virus-related deaths were estimated to have occurred in people younger than 65 years of age. This differs greatly from typical seasonal influenza epidemics, during which about 70 percent to 90 percent of deaths are estimated to occur in people 65 years and older.
Though the 2009 flu pandemic primarily affected children and young and middle-aged adults, the impact of the (H1N1)pdm09 virus on the global population during the first year was less severe than that of previous pandemics. Estimates of pandemic influenza mortality ranged from 0.03 percent of the world’s population during the 1968 H3N2 pandemic to 1 percent to 3 percent of the world’s population during the 1918 H1N1 pandemic. It is estimated that 0.001 percent to 0.007 percent of the world’s population died of respiratory complications associated with (H1N1)pdm09 virus infection during the first 12 months the virus circulated.
The United States mounted a complex, multi-faceted and long-term response to the pandemic, summarized in The 2009 H1N1 Pandemic: Summary Highlights, April 2009-April 2010. On August 10, 2010, WHO declared an end to the global 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic. However, (H1N1)pdm09 virus continues to circulate as a seasonal flu virus, and cause illness, hospitalization, and deaths worldwide every year.
But let’s not forget about all of that when Obama was President.
