CBS News reports:
Late last week, former President Obama broke his silence on the Trump administration’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic, calling it an “an absolute chaotic disaster.”
“You know, generally, former presidents just don’t do that,” McConnell told President Trump’s daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, during an interview streamed live by the Trump campaign Monday night.
“I think it’s a little bit classless, frankly, to critique an administration that comes after you,” he added. “You had your shot. You were there for eight years. I think the tradition that the Bushes set up — of not critiquing the president who comes after you — is a good tradition.”

“We literally left them a 69-page Pandemic Playbook…. that they ignored.
And an office called the Pandemic Preparedness Office… that they abolished.
And a global monitoring system called PREDICT .. that they cut by 75%” pic.twitter.com/wAmEDcMuIJ
