McConnell: Obama “should have kept his mouth shut”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell criticized Barack Obama Monday evening, lashing out days after the former president reportedly described the Trump administration’s response to the coronavirus as an “absolute chaotic disaster.”

“I think President Obama should have kept his mouth shut,” McConnell (R-Ky.) told Lara Trump, the president’s daughter-in-law, during an online Trump campaign event.

McConnell added that the critique was “a little bit classless” and said former presidents should follow “the tradition that the Bushes set up of not critiquing the president who comes after you.”
