Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) took a swipe at former President Barack Obama after he criticized President Donald Trump for his response to the coronavirus, which he called it an "absolute chaotic disaster."

In an interview with the president's daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, McConnell accused Obama of acting "classless."

McConnell blasted the former President for ignoring the tradition set by the two Bush presidents in not critiquing an administration that follows upon their exiting the White House.

"Generally former presidents just don't do that," McConnell said.

"I remember that President George W. Bush and his father, went right through eight years of Democratic administrations after they left office and kept their mouths shut, because they didn't feel it was appropriate for former presidents to even critique a president of another party," he said.

"So I think President Obama should have kept his mouth shut," McConnell continued.

"We know he doesn't like much this administration is doing, that's understandable," McConnell added.

"But I think it's a little bit classless frankly, to critique an administration that comes after you," he said.

"You had your shot, you were there for eight years," McConnell concluded.

"I think the tradition that the Bushes set up of not critiquing the president comes after you is a good tradition."

Trump blasted Obama Swine Flu response calling it a 'disaster'

Trump blasted Obama on Monday in a series of tweets, comparing his response to coronavirus with Obama’s Swine Flu response, calling it a “disaster.”

“We are getting great marks for the handling of the CoronaVirus pandemic, especially the very early BAN of people from China, the infectious source, entering the USA,” Trump said.

“Compare that to the Obama/Sleepy Joe disaster known as H1N1 Swine Flu. Poor marks, bad polls – didn’t have a clue!”

Obama also commented on the Flynne case being dropped, saying he was “worried” there was a risk to the "rule of law."

“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.”
