While campaigning for Democrats in Nevada on Monday, former President Obama made a laughable claim. He said he doesn’t believe in just making things up. You know, stuff like being able to keep your doctor and your healthcare plan.

Obama goes up against Trump in fight for Nevada Senate seat
Obama picked apart a number of current Republican positions including claims by Republican congressional candidates that people with pre-existing conditions would not lose their health insurance. “I know you can bet on anything here in Vegas, but you don’t want to bet that Republicans are going to protect your healthcare.”
Without mentioning him by name, Obama took a thinly-veiled swipe at President Trump. “Unlike some, I actually try to state facts—I believe in facts- I believe in a fact-based reality, a fact-based politics,” he said. “I don’t believe in just making stuff up. I think you should say what’s true.”
In her Senate campaign, Rosen has made health care the primary issue of her campaign — an issue that was also central to Obama’s presidency.
One of her supporters, Malerie Stanley, who arrived more than three hours before the rally to ensure she would get inside, said women’s rights was the key issue for her in the midterms.
