Obama Slams Trump’s Coronavirus Response Efforts, Flynn Case in Leaked Phone Call

Former President Barack Obama (D) can reportedly be heard slamming President Donald Trump’s coronavirus response efforts and the dropping of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s case in a leaked phone call.

Tape of the phone call, which obtained by Yahoo News, captures a conversation between Obama and former members of his administration.

The former president discussed the Flynn case, expressing his concern about the abandonment of the case.

On Thursday, the U.S, Department of Justice dropped its criminal case against Flynn. He initially pleaded guilty of lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, but he then sought to withdraw his plea this year.

“The news over the last 24 hours I think has been somewhat downplayed. … And the fact that there is no precedent that anybody can find for someone who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free. That’s the kind of stuff where you begin to get worried that basic — not just institutional norms — but our basic understanding of rule of law is at risk. And when you start moving in those directions, it can accelerate pretty quickly as we’ve seen in other places.”

Listen to an excerpt of Obama’s call below:

Obama went on to discuss the upcoming election and the sense of urgency he feels to ensure President Donald Trump is not re-elected.

“I am hoping that all of you feel the same sense of urgency that I do. Whenever I campaign, I’ve always said, ‘Ah, this is the most important election,’ especially obviously when I was on the ballot, that always feels like it’s the most important election,” Obama said. “This one — I’m not on the ballot — but I am pretty darn invested. We got to make this happen.”

“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. And by the way, we’re seeing that internationally as well.”

The former president also shared his opinion of the Trump administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic, describing it as an “anemic,” “spotty,” and an “absolute chaotic disaster”

“It’s part of the reason why the response to this global crisis has been so anemic and spotty,” the former president said. “It would have been bad even with the best of governments. It has been an absolute chaotic disaster when that mindset — of ‘what’s in it for me’ and ‘to heck with everybody else’ — when that mindset is operationalized in our government.”

Despite mounting criticism, the rising number of coronavirus cases, and the staggering death toll, on many occasions, Trump has insisted his administration has done a “great job.”

As of Saturday morning, there are more than 1.3 million confirmed coronavirus cases in the United States with the death toll over 78,600.

  1. Dear MR. OBAMAnation, you are the deeply embedded STAIN on this country that has marred it’s very fabric for 8 torturous, treasonist and terroristic years, now, PLEASE, kindly take your he-man wife and DISAPPEAR!! Your words have no meaning here, WE THE PEOPLE do NOT CARE what you have to say, do or think… You have brought this country to its knees during your presidency and now, by the Grace of God we have a POTUS that is lifting us out of the depths of despair that you had tried to bury us in.. BEGONE degenerate one, we need you NOT!! #KMAGTRUMP2020…. No, I DO NOT blame PRESIDENT Trump for what is happening today with this pandemic, it was just another ploy set forth by the democrats to try to unseat him, since the collusion, FAILED, the impeachment FAILED, it was only a matter of time before they would come up with something this heinous..

    1. This phone call is saaaaddddd. He was describing himself. Without a prompter. Barry is uhhh and duhhhh and uhhh and duhhh

  2. The single greatest danger to the health and well being, safety and security, the very life of all Americans and the Constitutional, Democratic, Rule of Law foundations of America is THE TYRANT TODDLER and MURDERING PSYCHOPATH presently pretending to be the 45th president : trumpisanabsoluteasshole.

    1. I see John dancing around in his underwear in his basement, covered in peanut butter.

        1. Johnnie boy – I love it when you talk dirty. Seems like that’s all you have to say. What kind of peanut butter do you like? I’ll bet it’s Skippy.

    2. Excuse me, John, HILLARY is not the 45th!! Please correct your statement!!

      1. Mary you are in the legions of trumphucklican morons who are unable and unwilling to live in the present. You assholes act like Obama is still president and Hillary is his VP. Living in the past has no effect on the present other than making you look like the toxic, useless, and worthless idiots, imbeciles, and morons you are

  3. Obama so wants to run this country he can taste it. He had his time now he just needs to go away. I have had enough of the Obama’s and the Clinton’s in this lifetime. They are a bunch of crooks and Hillay will suck his d— to ensure she will be first female president. What a sham. All the excuses she made for why she lost with the American people know why. We have had all of the Obamaclinton clan we can take. How unamerican can you be. Ask Hillary.

    1. Didn’t you know that? What do you think has been going on for the past few decades, at the bare minimum since Obama became the first non-white president that we ever had?

      All of their fear wrapped into one huge projection.

      1. Scotty – Obama’s failures, lies, racial division and scandals is why the Hillarrhoid lost. Nobody wanted another term of that BS.

        1. Obama is right when he said he got sense of urgency that Trump does not get re-elected . First the law is catching up to him. He was in on the fame up of General Flynn so he will have something to go down in history as the first President to be charged in a crime and sent to jail. Now why was he the only president who stood in Washington. He is the head of the shadow government. Why did Paul Ryan dump his secret service detail and come back with Obama’s chauffeur and detail. He made a deal for himself. Ryan could never get a seat on the Fox TV BOARD OF DIRECTORS unless he got help. This happened after Obama left office. So why would a Republican want to see Obama.
          Ryan refused to bring anything to the floor. That was his part.
          You worry about Obama care that should of been kicked out. You people think it is so great well it is worse than the Republicans think. They said you can keep your doctor lie. They said if you got a an illness like cancer you can’t be turned down. True. Problem is doctors now aren’t telling you and if you were told before Obama care the test they take won’t show your ill. So your still not being treated. Good Doctors are leaving bad doctors stay for money.
          In Venezuela they say they have the best health care in the world. Problem is they got no doctors . They got Cuban army medics. That is coming here. As for Obama I use to hold a baby now she is marry to a secret service agent . That agent was on Obama,s detail . He said not to vote for Obama on the 2nd term. They need to check out the logs on Obama’s details at the end of his term. It will show how many times he dumped his detail and were he called from. Then see what happened at that time. Seems Mr Barry was more civil Rights activists than president.
          But he was is not a DR King . He was a man of peace. But checked the riots at the end of his term.

          1. There is an old saying a good Indian is a dead Indian? Well the new saying should be the good Republican is a dead Republican

  4. Since when is he worried about division in this nation? He single-handed divided this nation racially in a way it hasn’t been since the 60’s. He needs to keep his big mouth out of business that doesn’t concern him. He had his chance, and he f’ed it up royally. So just stfu Obama and crawl back under the rock you came from!

  5. He’s only invested because his legacy is in the crapper and another 4 years of Trump might spell big trouble legal for him as the shady sh*t he was doing is slowly coming out….drip, drip, drip.

  6. Flynn was never charged with perjury.
    You are a limp-wristed, do nothing, useless, EX president that has absolutely no class and doesn’t know when to shut up.
    You are hip deep in some big trouble, bud.

  7. Poor Obamanation. He thinks he’s still in charge. Perhaps if he read the reason the charges were dropped, he might have a clue. The FBI agents backed Flynn’s statements, said he was truthful. The whole accusation was a BS charge.

    As far as the epidemic response, maybe he has forgotten that when H1N1 occurred during his administration, the response was so slow that 60.8 million Americans were infected. There were never any closures, travel restrictions, social distancing, calls for manufacturing of healthcare equipment, etc. Also, perhaps the US could have been better prepared if the Obamanation had anticipated another epidemic from his experience with H1N1. No, he just left everything the way it was so it could happen again. Now, he criticizes Trump. Of course he does, it’s an election year and he’s a liberal puke. He also upset because Trump has negated Obama’s administration, reversed the stranglehold on energy production.

    The Obamanation did nothing but complain, complain, complain during his 8 years. He constantly sought to divide America along racial and gender lines. His speeches on institutional racism and accusations racism against anyone that opposed any of his legislation. He traveled overseas, bad mouthing America at every chance, then supported Muslims over the US, pulling troops out of Iraq while providing funding that ultimately wound up in ISIS hands. He abandoned an ambassador and 35 other Americans in Benghazi because he didn’t want to offend Muslims in Libya. He bowed down to Iran, giving them $2.2 Billion for a treaty that only delayed their nuclear program and was unenforceable. He lied about getting Syria to destroy it’s chemical weapons only to have those weapons used against Syrian rebels. Then you have his AG meeting with Bill Clinton in private, resulting in Obama’s FBI dropping all charges against Hillary Clinton, Comey saying there was no “intent”. And, his FBI used a fake dossier, paid for by the Clinton campaign to obtain two FISA warrants for wire taps in order to spy on the Trump Campaign. He still travels overseas complaining about the US and the President.

    All in all, the Obamanation has nothing to say about anyone.

  8. Barry you have no room to talk about anyone when your administration sat idly by doing absolutely nothing while Americans died. You let swine flu kill thousands before you did a single thing and what you did was deplete 30,000 N95 masks and never restock them. What would your response to this have been deplete all the masks left then think about replacing them? Shut the entire country down and lock everyone in their homes and arrest those who don’t comply? Give everyone tax funded checks that are no longer being funded since nobody can work under your extremism?

  9. Obama needs to shut his corrupt mouth. Obama’s days are numbered. He is going to go down for his crimes. If it were up to me he would be hanged for treason. The most corrupt president there has ever been has NO business saying anything about President Trump who has done nothing but good for our country, unlike the piece of corrupt crap Obuma.

      1. maybe untouchable? nobody is untouchable from “the people” Just read the comments

        1. I am well into my 7th decade of life. I will not hold my breath

  10. This from the failure with so many scandals and Failures during his administration. This is why Trump is president and hillary isn’t. Let’s not forget his death toll on his watch.

  11. Is he upset because now we see what a corrupt President he really was and the media covered his ass and the criminal behavior. Now it comes out.

  12. You can’t trust a transtesticle Indonesian!

  13. O needs to keep his mouth shut. He had his chance. Even though he does have a right as a US Citizen, there is a time and a place for him, of all people, to be respectful.

  14. Obama was never trustworthy when he was President. There’s no reason to think he’s more truthful now.

    1. he is less truthful now because he can be and i know that any dem that is nominated is working for Obama. i promise it. that is why o pushes and pushes for dems since they will hand it to O on a silver platter. They cannot be trusted with American progression or American culture. Trying to erase it as it never was. We will teach our children no matter what you try. I know 50 years from now the history books will read how O infiltrated our government and Trump is the strong one to pull us out of it. Trump loves a good fight and he can stand among the best. He is one of the closest presidents to our forefathers standardsthen any president since Reagan

  15. What an unbelievable hypocrite! He’s worried about the rule of law??! The axxhole who ran the most corrupt, destructive administration in history? Proven now to have led an attempted coup on our duly elected President! Obummer should be behind bars or better yet, in front of a firing squad!

  16. Does any sane person care what this headed for Gitmo idiot says

  17. THE ETERNAL ASS HOLE trumpuke sure looks like what he is : a pile of toxic, useless, and worthless raw cesspool sludge.

    1. pile of toxic, useless, and worthless raw cesspool sludge….but…but…that’s Obama??????

    2. Whats wrong John? Did Obama cast you under his spell too? Well just move on over to that side and stay off our turf.

      1. Olivia, What the hell!!! You cannot give johnny butt, syphilis, confuction the projectionist, michael (with a capital B) or any other communist turd a lobotomy. THEY DO NOT HAVE A BRAIN!!!!! They were born without one.

  18. “And when you start moving in those directions, it can accelerate pretty quickly as we’ve seen in other places.” President Obama

    With Barr overriding our laws, with Moscow Mitch stacking the courts and not passing legislation, and Dear Leader pissing all over this country and a quarter of this country kissing His Majesty’s feet, we are screwed if these guys get another term.

    I YOU don’t see the dangers in that toxic soup, YOU are part of the problem.

    1. No! YOU ARE THE PROBLEM! Such childish and foul language doesn’t make you credible. But you’ve already been told that often.

    2. Oh, I’m definitely part of what you see as a problem.

      1. oh yes. And he is going to see how big of a part of the problem we ca be. Can it libtard!!

    3. Barr is not overriding anything; he’s actually applying the rule of law. Obama was the worst President in history. Race relations were ruined under his administration. Glad he’s gone and wish he would go away for good.

    4. Flynn was the first piece. Next the corrupt FBI will start to fall over like dominos. The Obama administrator will be soon exposed as a detriment to this country. Traitors..all of them.

    5. The only toxic soup is the Democrats and their lies. You are part of that soup.

    6. Moscow Mitch? Who said to Medveded on an open mic in 2012. “Give me some flexibility after the election.” Wasn’t that Nikita Big Ears?

  19. Welcome back Mr. Obama !!!!

    Real Americans have missed your calm, poised professionalism for drowning in the flood of insane, unhinged self absorption of the spoiled brat, 5th rate, rank amateur ABSOLUTE ASS HOLE trumphuck .

    1. So you fancy yourself one of the “Real Americans”? Sorry. You’re just another fool with a foul mouth. And that would be the kind of support Obama, the plotter and schemer, deserves. What past president continually comes back and sticks his nose in business he’s OUT of controlling? Not this one.

    2. America DOESN’T miss a GAY, racist, Man marrying, America hating, Islamic terrorist loving Barry Obummer. The ones that miss and loved Obama are the ones that cared less for America and what real Americans stand for. Barry and Michelle Obummer needs to keep their pie hole shut.

    3. He needs to go to hell real quick. Worst President ever. Set race relations back 100 years; tried to have Trump removed from office; knew about the phony Russia Dossier; responsible for more Muslim Murderers coming into the USA than anyone else; both he and his old lady are the biggest racists around. Frustrated ex-liar in Chief. He minds everyone’s business but his own . He needs to respect the present administration like Bysh respected his but then again, pigs have no manners.

    4. Poor Poor John ,,, how’s that view with your head up your backside ??

    5. Missed him? No one knew he was gone. He worked overtime to overthrow this administration. He should be put up against a wall. Blindfold optional.

      1. WOW !

        You trumpukelican ass holes sure are some pathetic shit.

        Just like your god-idol trumpuke.
