Barack H. Obama, the first Afro-American president, who brokered a functioning nuclear deal with Iran, who restored many Second Amendment gun rights to the American people, and who just wanted to go for a bike ride and enjoy and ice cream cone, has been out of office for about four years. Now President Trump, who ran on a platform of MAGA but has thus shown himself to promote MIGA (Make Israel Great Again) and sodomy as part of his official duties, is now blaming Obama for a lack of preparedness for the COVID-19 Coronavirus as the UK Guardian notes.
Donald Trump sought to shift blame on to the Obama administration for a nationwide coronavirus test kit shortage.
The president on Wednesday blamed a federal agency decision during Barack Obama’s presidency, which Trump said made it harder to quickly roll out testing for the virus.
“The Obama administration made a decision on testing that turned out to be very detrimental to what we’re doing, and we undid that decision a few days ago so that the testing can take place in a much more accurate and rapid fashion,” he told reporters during a White House meeting with airline executives, whom he had called to discuss the economic effects of the outbreak.

But in all seriousness, Trump has no place in doing this.
In reality, there is no way that anybody could have been truly prepared for this.
Sometimes, life just happens and people can get caught by surprise.
Even governments are taken by surprise, including the US.
It would be just as wrong and ridiculous if the Democrats did this to the Republicans for the same reasons.
Perhaps the question we should ask is, what are you (the average man), going to do about this?
For a long time, and still in many cultures, it is normal to prepare for the unexpected because everybody does, since nobody can predict the future.
Certainly we at Shoebat.com did not see this coming, but how could we have? The same goes for many other people.
Nobody can control or know everything of the future.
What we can do is react to our situations in a calm and orderly way.
Perhaps instead of trying to say “The Democrats did this”, Trump could put his supposed business skills to work and fix the problem as best as he can from the view of the government, since that is what businessmen do- they solve problems for people, which is how they make their money.
Or perhaps, is Trump just an actor, who made his career marketing the image of a businessman without actually being so (and as evidenced by his venture such as Trump Airlines/Ice/Steak/University/Vodka/the numerous casinos and hotels now closed)?
Now is not the time to blame Obama for something he did not do.
Let Obama play a round of golf in peace. Trump is the man in charge, and let us see if he steps up to his duties as boldly as he did when he was verbally abusing people on the 2016 campaign trail.
