Barack Obama

Barack Obama did not mention his successor by name Saturday in two virtual commencement addresses to high school and college students.

But Obama’s comments echoed criticism of the Trump administration that the former president leveled last month in a video endorsement of former vice president Joe Biden. Obama said then that the coronavirus pandemic had shown that “having leaders who are informed and honest and seek to bring people together” matters.

“More than anything, this pandemic has fully, finally torn back the curtain on the idea that so many of the folks in charge know what they’re doing,” Obama told college and university graduates on Saturday. “A lot of them aren’t even pretending to be in charge.”
