"Here's a useful summary of the current best thinking among public health experts on how we need to approach the fight against COVID-19 in the coming weeks," Obama said a post retweeted roughly 20,000 times.

"Watch this," Obama said. "It shows why we should all do the right thing and stay home to the fullest extent possible. All of us can help slow the spread of the virus, protecting the elderly, the vulnerable, and each other."



Trump, take that crayon out of your mouth and take notes. This is how a President speaks.

The former president comes off the sidelines to share health information, say thanks and offer inspiration - but avoids criticism of Trump.

He doesn't need to.  His very existence is criticism of Trump.

I'd really love the press to ignore the Braying Jackass the way Obama is -- just keep reporting the advice and guidance by actual, legitimate medical and science professionals.

And then, almost as an afterthought, "Oh, yeah, the President* also spoke today, but he said nothing of consequence compared to the valid information that doctors and medical professionals provided today."

Sure the economy is on fire and a deadly virus has become a global pandemic but you'll never see Trump in a tan suit and he's probably never even seen arugula let alone eaten it. And you know there isn't any fancy mustard on a McDonalds hamberder.

Let us give thanks and count our blessings.

No but if he did Obama would meet him half way.

Obama's not America's dad.  He's a bad person (murdering random people in foreign countries with kill bots) who was ultimately totally ineffective at facing down totalitarianism at his door (Republican insurgency) because he is a farking pussy and fighting these people requires a basic willingness to ACTUALLY MOUNT OPPOSITION.

Obama was always the best president in a couple generations at using his soap-box.  He's aware that when he makes a public statement, people will listen to it, and his reaction to that is to learn a bunch of important stuff people need to know and insert them into his public statements without even worrying much about whether the segue works.

sinner4ever: I wonder how he feels about throwing money at banksters to fill their bank accounts while cutting entitlements for those affected most by an emergency.


While I'm not defending Trump's and the GOP Senate's specific implementation (and I shouldn't because it's bad and ineffective), unfortunately the hard truth is that once you've already farked up to the point that the system is failing, proper systemic fixed won't work and it actually is a standard solution to try to inject money directly into whatever part of the economy will circulate it to impacted areas.  It's a necessary short-term solution needed to give everyone time to adjust so you can get back to the point where systemic solutions can be implemented.

I bring this up not because I'm full of deep wisdom, but because the above is a paraphrasing of the explanation for why Obama bailed out the automobile industry during the last crash (he was somewhat more ambivalent about the banks, iirc).  So technically it's the answer to your question, I think.

Like here's a good one.

How many people in the Bush administration UNDENIABLY should be in jail for things like approving torturing humans, and also following those orders and torturing humans?

Barrack Obama didn't care about their crimes, nobody was ever punished by his DOJ or military tribunal.  No attempt was ever made.

The wimpiness of useless liberals is why we have no accountability for Republicans, which is why they've so boldly and criminal expanded their power through a decade of Obama's pussy leadership

Or you know, he's trying to provide a nuanced reasoned response to try and respect the office that he held.  But you know, you want to howl and throw monkey shiat all over the place by all means go ahead.  But yeah by all means burn it all down child, burn it all down.

Presidents* have traditionally not been critical of current office holders.  A dignity and gravitas that comes with the position that last after that time is done.  But if you want to have it so that BO can go on unhinged rants about the current office holder, then you display a serious lack of understanding.   Did BO have a perfect presidency?  No.  No one would claim so, but if you demand it to satisfy your desire for political purity, than nut up, run, take your bernie bro like typing, wash your hands, and maybe stop posting.

You can justify anything depending on how craven you are.
If Obama had tied that bailout to actual debt ,the economy would have been kick started by the working class being able to spend money again and the banks would have seen consequence for their bad actions.

Instead they have created a pathway to greater riches and lower wages encouraged by both parties.
