Former President Barack Obama on Friday said that the Trump administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic has been an “absolute chaotic disaster” and blamed it on a “selfish” and “tribal” mindset that has become operationalized in government. “This election that’s coming up on every level is so important because what we’re going to be battling is not just a particular individual or a political party. What we’re fighting against is these long-term trends in which being selfish, being tribal, being divided, and seeing others as an enemy — that has become a stronger impulse in American life,” he said.

Comments:

What hubris our former Emperor has! He mentions CHAOS and ELECTION in the same statement: there wasn't any chaos when you responded to H1N1, was there, Obie? Because you DIDN'T respond at all. And election chaos...what do you call what you and your crew of thugs put the country through for the last 4 years? I pray to see you in an orange jumpsuit, Obie.

Unfortunately, largely due to the Presstitute Boot Lickers...none of OBlahBlahs Non-Response to any disaster was ever reported and the feckless republicans...the cowards that weren't subversives like Mccain Grahamnasty Romney and Paul Ryan never made an issue of the worst failure of a president ever...THAT was Barrack Obama...who should be locked in the stocks before being drug to a nearby lamppost for a very public punishment for his subversion of a President and Our Nation!

Barack Obama is very lucky that the American people are decent enough not to jail former presidents. The United States is not a banana republic, and Obama should be very grateful for that.

Watch for Marxists to criticize "selfishness". To them that is the opposite of "collective interests". Liberty and individual rights as enumerated in the constitution are anathema to them, but they rarely are open about it. Just as Lenin, Hitler, and Mao demanded total allegiance to the collective, modern Marxists want to transform our society into a centrally planned Utopia. They expect to be the ones to force the Opressors to equalize conditions with the Opressed (redistribution), and maintain their position as the Central Planners. Omlets anyone?

An actual President should never go to jail, because it would just make the opposing party try to jail the next President for any of his faults they might find. I have a problem with that, but as I believe it is a truism I can agree to it. HOWEVER This guy was never a true President to begin with. Dig up that fake Birth Certificate, and find out where he was actually born. Find out his real father, and prosecute him for the fraud he pulled on this country.

How many disasters, crisis's and other problems did Obama ignore in his 8 years? When Kentucky was a state without power due to an ice storm, what was Stinky doing? Taking his Missus to NYC for dinner and a show. Then there is the time he went off to Vegas to campaign, right after a shooting I think it was. How about Benghazi, and him sleeping right through it? OP says it all for all of us I think. Obama is a piece of work, and not very good work at that.

Keep talking Barry. LOUDER. Come on man, you know you want to. Better hurry. When someone actually is staring at a Federal prison term because of something you ordered, THAT will be a moment, won't it? How many leaks, facts, emails and testimony under oath are out there that could really jam you up. We aren't even talking about forcing the sale of guns to drug cartels. I hope this coup blows up so big they revisit THAT, because any normal time, any normal country would have you in prison or worse for that little move.

Tensions have exploded in recent days between President Trump and a batch of current and former military officials who are critical – to varying degrees – of how he's handled the unrest in the wake of George Floyd's death in the custody of the Minneapolis Police Department. The officials, including Trump's current Secretary of Defense Mark Esper, his former Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis and several others, have either implicitly broken with Trump in statements on policy or explicitly denounced his leadership — and Trump has fired back.

The Baltimore mayoral seat that was vacated last year when Catherine Pugh resigned over a corruption scandal -- which led to a three-year prison sentence -- now appears likely to be filled by a former mayor who has a past conviction of her own. With Democratic primary returns still coming in after Tuesday’s vote, the front-runner appears to be Sheila Dixon, who resigned as mayor in 2010 after a jury found her guilty of misdemeanor embezzlement for misappropriating gift cards for the poor.

Whitmer, a Democrat, famously has imposed one of the strictest lockdowns in the country, sparking frequent protests.

The Minneapolis mayor is asking for federal help cleaning up and rebuilding his city after rioters caused at least $55 million worth of damage through looting, burning, and defacing public and private property. That cost estimate is likely to increase in the coming days as government officials continue to tally the damage done in the wake of George Floyd’s death, Mayor Jacob Frey said according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz and the state’s congressional delegation are also pushing the Trump administration and Congress for funding. On Tuesday, city officials released an initial estimate of $55 million in damage done to at least 220 buildings.

A week ago, in the wake of a possible flattening of the COVID-19 growth curve, President Trump’s campaign could maintain some optimism. While polls suggested that the public trusted likely Democratic nominee Joe Biden as better than Trump at dealing with the health crisis, they continued to trust the president more on handling the economy. The polls were consistent with the idea that if he could convince the country to make the election about “who’s better for ensuring a strong American recovery?” he might be in a competitive position in November. Then came the death by asphyxiation of George Floyd under the knee of a Minneapolis policeman.
