At a fundraiser with Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) on Friday, former President Barack Obama graciously wished President Donald Trump the best as he fights cornavirus, remarking:

“Although we’re in the midst of a big political fight, and we take that very seriously. we also want to extend our best wishes to the President of the United States [and] the First Lady. Michelle and I are hopeful that they and others that have been affected by Covid-19 around the country are getting the care that they need, that they are going to be on the path to a speedy recovery, and it’s important I think for all of us to remember that even when we’re in the midst of big political battles with issues that have a lot at stake, that we’re all Americans and we’re all human beings, and we want to make sure everybody is healthy.”

And yet, at the same time Obama made those comments, the Trump campaign was firing off a fundraising email that featured as its subject line, “Lyin’ Obama.”

The body of the email contained was just as disgusting:

“We all know that Sleepy Joe isn’t fit to be YOUR President. We know it. You know it. And even Obama knows it — that’s why he’s holding a fundraiser with Kamala instead of Joe, who is probably already asleep in his basement.”

Biden had announced that his campaign would be taking down all of its negative ads aimed at Trump for the next 14 days, and yet Trump’s team remained in attack mode:

Whatever happened to simple human decency? Oh, that’s right: Trump has never and will never possess an ounce of anything human or decent. Kind of makes you wonder if perhaps the president’s COVID-19 diagnosis is a message from the universe reminding him that when you put out hatred and bitterness, it boomerangs back on you.
