In fiery speeches Friday in Milwaukee and Detroit, former President Barack Obama took aim at President Donald Trump and other Republicans for “making stuff up.”
“What we have not seen before in our public life is politicians just blatantly, repeatedly, baldly, shamelessly, lying. Just making stuff up,” Obama said. “Calling up, down. Calling black, white. That’s what your governor is doing with these ads, just making stuff up,” he said, referring to Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker.
Obama cited a recent Trump comment about passing a tax cut before the November election. Obama then told his audience that “Congress isn’t even in session before the election! He just makes it up!”
