CNN’s Sciutto: Trump Is Playing to His Base with Outright Falsehoods
SCIUTTO: "A former president taking a not so veiled shot at the current one. Here is President Obama on the midterm campaign trail."
OBAMA: "Here is just one simple fact. This is a fact. This is not — I’m just — unlike some, I actually try to state facts. I believe in facts. (Cheering and Applause) 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, like, actually say to people what’s true."
SCIUTTO: "Imagine that. These words are coming as President Trump tries to play to his base with outright falsehoods, promising new tax cuts, warning of riots, playing up conspiracies with very little basis in reality."
