"Mitch McConnell: Obama 'should have kept his mouth shut' instead of criticizing US coronavirus response"

As if (1) Obama lost his First Amendment rights when he left the White House and (2) McConnell "kept his mouth shut" when Obama was president. I'm sure Supreme Court Justice Merrick Garland would agree.

What type of loser types about Hannah's remote ? Weird

It's a deflection. Obama's administration is now under increasing scrutiny due to its Nixonian behavior with respect to its political enemies. So this exercise in bad taste, while unfortunate, is not a major concern.

There it is, 7:32 trotting out Obamagate. Is Obamagate supposed to be Trump's counterpunch? Unfortunately, it's unintelligible to anyone not deeply mired in the Fox news cinematic universe. But then again, Trump's only talking to his superfans, right 7:32. Not your average non-obsessive American worried about their health or job.

Newsflash, Obamagate is meaningless.

And it's fucking rich that Mitchell calls out Obama for saying the response has been chaotic (it has) when all Trump does is blame Obama for everything, even bad testing for a virus that didn't exist when he left office. But again, these guys are speaking to superfans like 7:32 who love this catnip.
