BARACK Obama trolled Donald Trump for “low ratings” as he ripped into his successor in a fiery speech in support of Joe Biden.
“His TV ratings are down,” Obama said in the speech at Florida International University on Saturday.
Obama also roasted Trump for his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, claiming the president “doesn’t have a plan.”
"You think he's hard at work coming up with a plan to get us out of this mess? Well, I don't know, because I know he's had a tough week. Everybody's been very unfair to Donald Trump this week," Obama said.
He also questioned how Donald Trump can handle COVID-19 as "new cases are breaking records" eight months into the pandemic.
"Donald Trump isn't going to suddenly protect all of us. He can't even take the basic steps to protect himself," Obama said.
Obama also trolled Trump for storming out of 60 Minutes interview with Lesley Stahl.
"He thought the questions were too tough. Too tough? Miami, listen, if he can't answer a tough question like 'what would you like to do in a second term,' then it's our job to make sure he doesn't get a second term," Obama challenged.
Earlier this week, Obama trolled Trump by claiming he left a “pandemic playbook” in the White House that Trump “probably used to prop up a wobbly table.”
Obama, then speaking in support of Biden and Kamala Harris at a car rally in Philadelphia, referenced an article in The New York Times that claimed the President has a bank account in China.
"Listen, can you imagine, if I had had a secret Chinese bank account when I was running for reelection?" Obama said.
He continued: "You think Fox News might have been a little concerned about that? They would have called me Beijing Barry."
Obama’s trolling comes after Trump took aim at him during a campaign stop in North Carolina, and the president’s continued attacks on his predecessor in recent weeks.
"Nobody is showing up for Obama’s hate laced speeches. 47 people! No energy, but still better than Joe!" Trump tweeted during Obama's speech on Saturday.
The president even joked that Obama is campaigning for Trump as his predecessor has increasingly thrown his support behind publicly behind Biden.
"Obama is campaigning for us. Every time he speaks, people come over to our side. He didn’t even want to endorse Sleepy Joe. Did so long after primaries were over!" Trump tweeted.
