Former President Barack Obama deliberately didn’t mention his successor, President Donald Trump, by name. However, it was crystal clear who Obama was bashing in a speech in Las Vegas when he said that “unlike some, I actually try to state facts.”
Watch video here:
"This is a fact. This is not — 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," former Pres. Obama says at a campaign rally. https://t.co/0wP7P1xCg6 pic.twitter.com/l9t5sIpYjl

Obama, who was stumping for Nevadan Democrats ahead of the November midterms, warned the audience against voting Republican because of “what they’re saying they’re going to do if you send them back to do more.”
“Unlike some, I actually try to state facts,” he continued, in an obvious reference to Trump’s regular touting of conspiracy theories and telling of barefaced lies.
“I believe in facts, alright?” Obama added. “I believe in a fact-based reality and a fact-based politics. I don’t believe in just making stuff up. I think actually you should say to people what’s true.”
