It's a drive-in meeting in the era of the coronavirus.

“The other day at a rally he said people are paying too much attention to Covid. As if he is jealous of the media coverage of the Covid! So he turned the White House into a cluster! "

The charge is unprecedented in a country where it is customary for a former president not to criticize his successor. But after having suffered in silence the attacks of Donald Trump for nearly four years, Barack Obama cheerfully breaks the tradition in turn in the last days of the campaign.

"When we asked Trump what he could have done differently, you know what he said? Not much. Not much ? Really ? Maybe he could have avoided advising us to swallow bleach to cure the Covid!

The rally is broadcast live by all news channels, even the very Trumpist Fox News. Donald Trump is clearly among the viewers and ranting live on Twitter. This is Barack Obama's third meeting to support his former vice president. The goal is not to rally new voters but to mobilize the Democratic electorate.
