  ‘It just won’t be so exhausting’: Obama debuts his closing argument for Biden In a rousing speech before the Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, former President Barack Obama lambasted the Trump administration and urged the Democratic faithful to turn out in droves to elect Joe Biden. “We can't be complacent,” Obama said Wednesday at what the Biden campaign advertised as a “drive-in town hall.” Obama stressed that a Biden-Harris administration would be, above all, a return to normalcy after what he described as the chaos of the Trump era, including the president’s penchant for elevating baseless conspiracy theories online. © Provided by Yahoo!

Former President Barack Obama lit into Republicans, specifically White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, over their failure to contain the coronavirus pandemic or pass a healthcare law to replace his signature policy, Obamacare.

During his second stop in Michigan with 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, his two-term vice president, Obama riffed off of Meadows' admission last week that the U.S. wouldn't "control" the COVID-19 outbreak.

"We've got his chief of staff saying, he said this on TV, 'We're not going to control the pandemic.' Flat out just said it," Obama said Saturday in Detroit of President Trump's top aide. "We noticed. Yes, you're right. And that's why we've got to have Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in the White House."

While Trump tried to pin blame on Obama , the initial responsibility for the shortage appears to lie with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

President Obama , House Republicans voted more than 50 times to repeal or rewrite the Affordable Care Act. But on Friday, the House couldn’t muster the votes needed to pass its own healthcare law, which some call White House coronavirus task forces to be 'phased down' around Memorial Day

Obama similarly dinged Republicans for promising to ensure healthcare coverage for people with pre-existing conditions, but struggling to turn any of their proposals into law.

"It's the same place they put the pandemic playbook we gave them," he said, the small drive-in rally crowd chanting "no plan, no plan." "It's lost. It's gone. Missing."

While waiting for a technical glitch that cut-out his microphone to be fixed, an audience member asked after the former first lady.

“Michelle’s home. She says hey," Obama said.

Though on the road to support his ex-lieutenant before the Nov. 3 election, Obama used the opportunity to defend his own legacy.

"A president by himself can't eliminate all racial bias in our criminal justice system. Electing me, it didn't make us post-racial," he said. "That's what voting’s about: it’s not about making things perfect, it’s about making things better."

What is Trump's healthcare plan? It looks a lot like Obamacare.

  What is Trump's healthcare plan? It looks a lot like Obamacare. Though President Trump talks a lot about throwing out the ACA, he's just been tweaking certain parts of it, and preserving it in all but name.He often says he'll be replacing that 2010 law with "something terrific" and/or "something great.

"TrumpCare" describes health care reform under Donald Trump. We explain TrumpCare and how it is different than ObamaCare. When people say “TrumpCare” they are essentially referring to healthcare changes made, attempted to be made, and/or pushed for under President Trump

The latest GOP plan would add 23 million Americans to the ranks of the uninsured within a decade, according to the Congressional Budget Office. Republicans are stuck, of course, because they have hollered for the repeal of the ACA since a Democrat- controlled Congress passed it in 2010.

Biden, following Obama's address, asked the crowd whether they felt "nostalgic" listening to his former boss. He too mocked Trump, this time over the New York Times report that the president wrote off $70,000 for hairstyling while starring in his NBC reality TV show, The Apprentice.

"l'll tell you what man, I hardly have any hair, but I'd rather have what I have," Biden said.

Obama also has appearances scheduled in Florida and Georgia on Monday for Biden.
