Over the weekend, Obama took a thinly veiled shot at Trump during a college commencement speech.
Trump pushed back. Hard.
He called Obama a grossly incompetent president. You can almost hear the sound of journalist heads exploding.
‘Grossly incompetent’: Trump dismisses Obama over coronavirus criticism
President Donald Trump on Sunday dismissed his predecessor as “grossly incompetent,” a day after former President Barack Obama said leaders weren’t “even pretending to be in charge” amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Asked about Obama’s comments, Trump first told a pool of reporters at the White House that administration officials “had a great weekend” during a working trip to Camp David.
“We did a lot of terrific meetings, tremendous progress is being made on many fronts, including coming up with a cure for this horrible plague that has beset our country,” he said.
When pressed further, Trump added: “Look, he was an incompetent president. That’s all I can say. Grossly incompetent.”

As you can probably imagine, people on the left are freaking out about this.
I know it doesn’t need to be said but Trump is the one who’s grossly incompetent.

Trump responds to Obama's commencement address by saying he "was an incompetent president. That's all I can say. Grossly incompetent."
Quite the accusation coming from the guy currently overseeing the most incompetent response to the crisis of any nation.pic.twitter.com/P2MMR6MtH6

None of these liberals will admit that Obama started this.
Obama is simply not capable of showing Trump the same courtesy he was afforded by George W. Bush.
