As the pandemic continues to spread across the United States at a record pace, President Trump has continued to hold large, unmasked rallies in battleground states.
While the simple fact that these rallies are happening is incredibly irresponsible behavior for a President, the things he says at them go to the next level.
During his remarks in Martinsburg, Pennsylvania, on October 26, President Trump mocked former President Obama for the small size of his speech earlier that day.
The only problem? President Obama had made no speech earlier that day.
For the umpteenth time, the internet was struck by how obsessed President Trump seems to be with the popularity of his predecessor.

The President has never been one to rise above a petty attack.
@atrupar Does @realDonaldTrump actually ever say anything? Is crowd size what is really on the minds of Americans?… https://t.co/X8h3ZWWIfS— Pam (@Pam)1603753926.0
@atrupar @kenjeong In his head Obama gives a speech about him everyday.— Sal Romero (@Sal Romero)1603758542.0
The things President Trump claims at his rallies will be one thing Americans could likely do without if he loses re-election next in November.

At this point, few people online were surprised by the President's obvious apathy for the facts.

@atrupar @kenjeong He doesn't care. His supporters believe him.— Anita Paul (@Anita Paul)1603749906.0
At least in these dark times, the President gave us a healthy stream of unhinged moments to keep us entertained.
@atrupar I have yet in four years seen Donald Trump make a speech intelligible enough to be called one. All I have… https://t.co/tJGCDe1NlX— AnLynn208 (@AnLynn208)1603841467.0
Next week, Americans will choose whether or not they want a President endlessly fixated on the achievements of his predecessor or one focused on the nation's future.
