Barack Obama Bashes He Who Shall Not Be Named With 'Fact-Based Reality' Speech

"Unlike some, I actually try to state facts," the former president said during a campaign rally.

Former President Barack Obama may not have mentioned his successor, President Donald Trump, by name.

But for many it was crystal clear who Obama was bashing in a speech in Las Vegas on Monday night when he said that “unlike some, I actually try to state facts.”

Check out the video here:

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.”
