Past presidents generally do not make public statements criticizing sitting presidents, but former President Barack Obama and his first lady Michelle ostensibly did so Saturday.

The veiled shots at President Donald Trump's attacks on the poorest parts of Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., district in Baltimore came via Twitter.

Ex-President Obama tweeted:

"I've always been proud of what this team accomplished during my administration. But more than what we did, I'm proud of how they’re continuing to fight for an America that's better."

He linked to a July 26 op-ed in The Washington Post, headlined "We are African Americans, we are patriots, and we refuse to sit idly by," and signed by 149 African Americans who served in the Obama administration.

Former first lady Michelle also tweeted Saturday a video of a Baltimore dance routine done to her famed motto "when they go low, we go high": 

"On #NationalDanceDay, I'm shouting out the Lethal Ladies, a Baltimore STEP team who I saw perform back in 2017. I'm so proud of you all — and everyone who’s dancing today!"
