You’ve got to hand it to Obama. He lies so effortlessly. During a recent event while campaigning in Wisconsin, he accused Trump of lying, then said that we’ve never had politicians just making stuff up. Amazing.
The Daily Caller reports:
OBAMA SAYS POLITICIANS LYING IS SOMETHING ‘WE HAVE NOT SEEN BEFORE.’ HERE ARE THREE OF HIS BIGGEST WHOPPERS
Former President Barack Obama lamented the state of political rhetoric in the U.S. at a rally in Wisconsin on Friday, saying politicians are “just blatantly, repeatedly, baldly, shamelessly lying.”
Obama traveled to Wisconsin to campaign for Democratic candidates including Sen. Tammy Baldwin, gubernatorial candidate Tony Evers and others. Obama accused Republicans of lying about healthcare, namely that GOP politicians would protect coverage of pre-existing conditions.
“Listen throughout human history, certainly throughout American history, politicians have exaggerated. They make promises that they may try to fulfill, but then it turns out to be harder than they expected,” Obama told the crowd assembled in Milwaukee. “They pump up the things that they did that are good.”
“They downplay the things that they did that aren’t so good. They try to put a positive spin on things,” Obama continued. “But what we have not seen before, in our recent public life, at least, is politicians just blatantly, repeatedly, baldly, shamelessly lying.”

Obama apparently thinks no one remembers the entire eight years he was president.
