President Obama pulled out the facts during a rally in Milwaukee on Friday and called out the Trump administration for promising to take on corruption, but instead getting hit with multiple indictments.
“They promised to take on corruption. Remember that?” Obama said. “They have gone to Washington and just plundered away.
He went on to say that the number of officials who have been criminally indicted can take up a whole football field. “In Washington, they have racked up enough indictments to field a football team,” he said before adding, “Nobody in my administration got indicted.”
He also brought up Hillary Clinton’s email server, which was a hot button topic during the last presidential election.
“In the last election, it was Hillary’s emails. ‘This is terrible’ … ‘This is a national security crisis.’ They didn’t care about emails and you know how you know? Because if they did, they’d be up in arms right now that the Chinese are listening to the president’s iPhone that he leaves in his golf cart,” Obama said.
Obama also took a jab at the current administration for just “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,” he stated. “Calling up, down. Calling black, white.”
Obama’s speech came just in time for next month’s midterm election, in which he said “the character of our country is on the ballot.”
