Obama Mocks Trump for Constantly ‘Making Stuff Up’: ‘I Believe in a Fact-Based Reality’
Former president Barack Obama held a rally in Nevada on Monday to gin up support for Democrats ahead of the midterm elections. During his speech, the Obama took multiple shots at Donald Trump and his administration for their non-adherence to facts.
Obama went through several of his calls to encourage people to vote, calling the upcoming elections “the chance to restore some sanity to our politics.” As he warned about what could happen if Republicans maintain their hold on Congress for the next two years, Obama eventually launched into a tangent where – even though he didn’t say Trump’s name – he seemed to implicitly mock the president for shaping his own reality without regard for what’s actually true.
“This is a fact….unlike some, I actually try to state facts. I believe in fact. All right? I believe in a fact-based reality. And, a fact-based politics. I don’t believe in just making stuff up. I think you should say to people what is true.”
Trump’s critics regularly slam him over his constant falsehoods and factually-erroneous statements. On Monday, multiple political observers raised questions about Trump’s dubious claim that “unknown Middle Easterners” have integrated themselves into the migrant caravan heading towards the U.S. southern border.
