Obama, Biden Team Up in Conversation on Trump’s COVID-19 Handling: ‘He Can’t Relate in Any Way’

Former President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are teaming up in a new conversation, where they discuss the current administration’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

In a minute-long clip teased on Wednesday by Biden’s campaign, Biden and Obama are seen showing up to the meeting in masks and socially distanced as they are seated further apart.

In the clip, Biden starts out by saying, “Can you imagine standing up when you were president and saying ‘it’s not my responsibility. I take no responsibility.’ Literally. Literally.”

“Those words didn’t come out of our mouths when we were in office,” Obama answered to Biden’s remark.

Biden continued to take a swing at President Donald Trump’s handling of the outbreak, “No. I don’t understand his inability to get a sense of what people are going through. He can’t relate in any way.”

Obama responded in praise of Biden, “Well, and one of the things I have always known about you Joe, it’s the reason I wanted you to be my vice president, and the reason why you were so effective … it all starts with being able to relate.”

The full video of their conversation is expected to be released on Thursday.

Watch the video below:

In a previous tweet, Obama has urged against people politicizing the pandemic, as IJR reported.

“The latest data offers a tragic reminder that the virus doesn’t care about spin or ideology––and that the best thing we can do for our economy is to deal with our public health crisis,” Obama tweeted on July 15.

Obama officially endorsed Biden for president on April 14, where he said, “Our country’s future hangs on this election, and it won’t be easy.”

Responses

  1. Now Beijing Biden, the Basement Boy, has stated he will over turn Trump’s Executive Order restricting immigration and allow unrestricted immigration.
    Talk about clueless.
    Apparently doesn’t know how this virus got into the US.

  2. Well….all Trump has to do to stop the increase of people testing positive for this virus is to do what the Beijing Biden/Obummer administration did, stop the testing.
    Yep, that stopped the N1H1 virus.

  3. Screw, aren’t you going to attempt to convince us the H1N1 deaths in 2009-10 and the 2 Ebola deaths were signs of Obama’s “incompetence” BUT COVID-19’s 145,000 deaths in 6 months is a sign of Trump’s excellent response? That is not going to work any more than you repeating Biden is still in his basement.

  4. “Can’t relate in any way.”

    Considering one of these people hides in a basement and the other sequesters on his multi-million dollar Martha’s Vineyard estate (an island which should be flooded by dire predictions of global warming) I ask one question.

    How can either of you relate?

  5. trumplethinskin is not good enough to be in the

    same zip code as Mr. Biden and Mr. Obama

    1. newsflash for morons:

      He’s not. Joe’s hiding in a basement far from DC. Obozo’s either in toney Westchester (AOC’s hometown) or more-toney Martha’s Vineyard.
