Former Obama administration officials and assorted worshippers have been indulging themselves in a lot of nostalgia tweeting over the last few weeks, somehow convinced that if their Dear Leader were still in the White House, the coronavirus would have skipped past the United States altogether.
Never mind the fact that Obama would probably still have flights coming in from Beijing to this day. Never mind that Obama was the Uncrowned King of Globalism and that he would probably be off apologizing to our enemies and allies for daring to be so rich as a country during this crisis. Never mind all that. Let’s just sit around and pretend that simple ObamaMagic would have kept us safe from the pandemic.
On Wednesday, Valerie Jarrett (who, remember, looks absolutely nothing like a mixture of Planet of the Apes and the Muslim Brotherhood) tweeted: “Someone asked me today how would @BarackObama have handled this crisis? Answer in one word – Better. Ok, two words. Much better.”
This tweet was widely shared and appreciated among the Obama Cultists on Twitter, but at least one social media user didn’t care for the sentiment. In a response, Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) urged Jarrett and everyone else longing for Barack Obama to take a step back and remember that we’re all in this thing together.
“Why do so many Obama administration staffers constantly try to make Americans feel awful?” he asked. “Highlighting policy differences is expected – but this level of vitriol? During this pandemic? Why?”
Ooh, call on us, call on us. Yes, thank you. Dan, it’s because liberals are absolutely some of the most miserable people walking the face of the earth, and they want everyone else to feel that way, too!
Of course, we suspect that you already knew that.
We’d love to know how Democrats – Obama or anyone else – would have improved the response to this crisis, because if we’re taking their criticisms of Trump as the standard, we’re not seeing much to be impressed with. Guess what? Refusing to call it the Wuhan Virus wouldn’t help the people flooding NYC emergency rooms right now. Nor would shoving emissions standards into the stimulus bill. We’re also not quite sure how you can criticize the federal response to the crisis on one hand…and then insist that we put the government in charge of all health care on the other? That just doesn’t quite make sense.
But then, a lot of things don’t make sense when you spend your time listening to Democrats. Better to devote that time to better things like washing your hands or playing video games or drilling a small hole in your forehead. You know, productive stuff.
