Former President Barack Obama finally put aside the "when they go low, we go high" mantra for a bit during a drive-in rally for Joe Biden in Philadelphia on Wednesday evening.

Obama took the gloves off after facing years of criticism for not speaking up enough amidst unprecedented actions by President Donald Trump.

The former president ripped Trump for his handling of the coronavirus pandemic and questioned how Fox News would react if it was revealed he had an unreported bank account in China like his successor.

"He's got a secret Chinese bank account. How's that possible? Listen, can you imagine if had a secret Chinese bank account when I was running for reelection? You think Fox News might've been a little concerned? They would've called me Beijing Barry," Obama said as cars honked loudly.

The 44th president was referencing a recent New York Times revelation that in his public financial disclosures, Trump did not include a Chinese bank account as well as others in Britain and Ireland. Trump withdrew an unusually large $15.1 million lump sum from the capital account in 2017.

He went on to note that Trump's companies paid more to the Chinese government in taxes, $188,561, than Trump himself paid federal income taxes, $750. 

“This is not a reality show. This is reality, and the rest of us have had to live with the consequences of him proving himself incapable of taking the job seriously,” Obama added.
