The man wears hypocrisy oh so well…
President Barack Obama denounced Donald Trump for insisting that the election is “rigged” against him, saying the Republican nominee’s claim is “dangerous.”
…never mind that Obama has made similar claims in the past.
“When you try to sow the seeds of doubt in people’s minds about the legitimacy of our election, that undermines our democracy,” Obama said Thursday at a campaign event for Hillary Clinton.
The president went on to misrepresent Trump’s remarks about not accepting the results of the election, before adding that it’s “not a joking matter.”
But Media Research Center found a 2008 clip of then-candidate Barack Obama warning about voter fraud, saying both Republican and Democrats “have monkeyed around” with voting results.
