President Obama expressed his personal thoughts about the United States’ response to the covid-19 pandemic. It was tastefully presented, unemotional and not personal. It was about leadership. I’m sure that Mr. Obama would enjoy a personal engagement with nearly any of the individuals comprising leadership, but as a group, taken together, they’re neither good company nor good host.

Now the actual point. President Obama expressed his thoughts on the US response to the pandemic. Media repeats the most provocative interpretation possible every 12 minutes in an attempt to whip up some energy, eyeballs and clicks. It’s not news beyond the fact that it happened. Do not keep frothing it to try and make more than it is.
