        A little bit classless

        Republican Kentucky senator says uppity black former president should Keep His Mouth Shut.

        Last week,?remarks by Obama were leaked to Yahoo News?that were highly critical about Trump and his administration, seeming to break a convention in US politics that former occupants of the White House rarely criticize their successors.

        Does that convention apply to private conversations though? I don’t think so. Obama’s remarks were leaked.

        But really that’s beside the point; I wouldn’t think McConnell had more of a case if Obama had made his remarks in an editorial in the Washington Post. Conventions are all very well but Trump is not a normal “occupant of the White House.” It’s not just that he has bad policies, it’s not even just that he has bad policies plus he’s dimwitted and untalented (like Bush and Reagan). It’s a whole lot more than that.

        Plus, if we’re talking about conventions, there’s also a convention that the Senate isn’t supposed to ignore a president’s nomination for the Supreme Court on the ludicrous grounds that there will be an election in almost a year. Really though that’s not so much a convention as a constitutional duty.

        Asked about Obama “slamming” the administration for its response to the coronavirus outbreak, he said: “I think President Obama should have kept his mouth shut.

        “You know, we know he doesn’t like much this administration is doing. That’s understandable. But I think it’s a little bit classless frankly to critique an administration that comes after you.”

        Ah, classless. Yes. Unlike the deeply classy Trump, who vomits out public insults hundreds of times a day, who brags about grabbing them by the pussy, who bragged about wanting to fuck his own daughter, who has the ugliest tackiest trashiest pseudo-Versailles living room on the planet – that Trump.
