Former President Barack Obama ripped into President Donald Trump over the Republican's recent complains about the media's constant focus on the coronavirus crisis.
'He's jealous of COVID's media coverage!' Obama remarked to a crowd of 273 cars at a drive-in style event in Orlando, Florida Tuesday.
Trump made is clear he was watching Obama hammer him, sending out a tweet mocking the Democrat's crowd size: 'Now @Fox News is playing Obama's no crowd, fake speech for Biden, a man he could barely endorse because he couldn't believe he won,' the president wrote.

'And over the weekend his chief of staff, and I'm quoting here, I'm not making this up. His chief of staff on a news program said, 'we're not going to control the pandemic.' Yes he did and yes we noticed,' Obama said.
Obama seemed to bungle the name of Sen. Bill Nelson at first, calling him Ben. Ben Nelson is the ex-Nebraska governor.
Obama joked that Sen. Nelson had been wearing a mask.
Obama again hit Trump for saying 'not much' when asked if he'd change his response to the coronavirus pandemic.
'Not much? Not much? Really? Not much? You can't think of anything you might be doing differently,' Obama said, pointing out how Trump had said 'inject bleach' during a White
