Every day it’s a new low for this guy. Speaking before Al Sharpton’s shady National Action Network today, the president actually claimed this:
In an unsparing critique of Republicans, President Barack Obama on Friday said the GOP is threatening voting rights in America more than at any point since the passage of the historic 1965 law expanding rights at the ballot box to millions of black Americans.
“The stark simple truth is this: The right to vote is threatened today,” Obama said in a fiery speech at civil rights activist and television talk host Al Sharpton’s National Action Network conference.
This is beyond irresponsible and incredibly incendiary. It’s difficult to believe a president would sink to such depravity as to incite people in such ugly fashion. Truly deplorable.
The president pinned efforts to curb access to the ballot box directly on the GOP, declaring that the effort “has not been led by both parties. It’s been led by the Republican Party.”
Of course none of what he says is even remotely true, but when have facts stopped this maniac?
