I could not help but laugh when I saw Barack Obama listed as a keynote speaker at a conference on disinformation.
Obama spoke at Stanford University on Thursday on the subject.
Ironically, this is the same man who won the “Lie of the Year” in 2013 by PolitiFact.
The Best Liar
Politicians in general are notorious liars.
They are narcissists that will say just about anything to feed their ego and win office.
Obama stated, “All we see is a constant feed of content where useful factual information and happy diversions, and cat videos flow alongside lies, conspiracy theories, junk science, quackery, White supremacist, racist tracts, misogynist screeds.”
He has also promised that his Obama Foundation will be “working to empower and equip emerging leaders to tackle issues like the spread of disinformation.”
He can start by cleaning up his own act.
Let’s not forget that under Obama, the FBI investigated Donald Trump for Russian collusion that was made up by his former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.
The Federalist editor-in-chief Mollie Hemingway responded, “Would you be apologizing for your role in the biggest disinformation campaign the country has ever seen?
“The Russia collusion hoax that you helped perpetrate?”
She was one of many that had a long list of Obama lies.
My favorite, however, is the 2013 award of “Lie of the Year.”
That was given to Obama by PolitiFact when it actually had a decent reputation as a legitimate fact-checking outlet.
Obama won the award for telling Americans, “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it,” during the launch of Obamacare.
I suspect that if PolitiFact has any dignity left, one of the many lies that Joe Biden has spewed will be the 2022 winner.
