Trump keeps lying about President Obama

On Friday night, Donald Trump spoke to a crowd at rally in Pennsylvania and falsely claimed that President Barack Obama had “screamed” at a protester.

“If I spoke the way Obama spoke to that protester, they would say, ‘He became unhinged!’” Trump claimed. “He spent so much time screaming at this protester and frankly, it was a disgrace.”

In actuality, Obama had asked the crowd at a North Carolina rally earlier in the day to treat the protester with respect and not boo. He also made a point to acknowledge the protester’s apparent military service and advanced age.

“We live in a country that respects free speech,” he said as he told supporters not to boo the man. “Don’t boo, vote.”

During his rally, Trump also claimed that the media was spinning the story of the protester at Obama’s event, claiming that the cameras would not show the man.

“They wouldn’t put the cameras on him,” Trump said. “They kept the cameras on Obama.”

This isn’t the first time the GOP candidate has made false allegations about the president. Trump has previously come under fire for his refusal to distance himself from the “birther” movement, which he helped fuel during previous elections.

On Saturday in Tampa, Florida, Trump repeated the same claims concerning the protester.
