It seems that Obama believes in facts that are convenient to him. This is just another example of the media bias between Obama and Trump. Obama gets the benefit of the doubt while Trump gets attacked on a daily basis.
Obama actually said this: "Unlike some I actually try to state facts. I believe in facts. I believe in a fact-based reality and a fact based politics. I don't believe in just making stuff up."
This astonishing statement flies in the face of that stubborn thing called the truth. Here are just a few of the times Obama has wrought havoc with the truth as he sold (and sells) his bill of goods to America:
1. Rated the “Lie of the Year” by left-wing Politifact, Obama said, "If you like your health care plan, you can keep it.” Politifact noted in 2013, “So this fall, as cancellation letters were going out to approximately 4 million Americans, the public realized Obama’s breezy assurances were wrong. Boiling down the complicated health care law to a soundbite proved treacherous, even for its promoter-in-chief. Obama and his team made matters worse, suggesting they had been misunderstood all along.”
2. Obama said this year about his administration: “We didn’t have a scandal that embarrassed us.” Oh, really? He conveniently forgot the IRS scandal, the Benghazi scandal, the Fast and Furious Scandal, letting Hezbollah funnel cocaine into the United States, and secretly wiretapping AP reporters.
