Trump makes up thing Obama said, Attacks him for it

Thing is, Obama didn’t say that. In fact he said nothing like that.

Trump appears to be paraphrasing remarks Obama made during a PBS town hall in June 2016. Obama referenced Trump’s promise to bring back manufacturing jobs, and said, “Well, how exactly are you going to do that? What exactly are you going to do? There’s no answer to it.”

He just says, ‘Well, I’m going to negotiate a better deal.’ Well, what, how exactly are you going to negotiate that?” Obama continued. “What magic wand do you have? And usually the answer is, he doesn’t have an answer.”

At no point during Obama’s remarks did he say anything about GDP. In short, Trump fabricated a quote to make himself look good.

Our President ladies and gentlemen.

Show me where the president lies lol.

Show us where the lie is in the assertion.

Obama did deride him and Trump does appear to have a magic wand.

Many others said 4% GDP was impossible, one could imply Obama meant this by referring to manufacturing jobs…Which are coming back.

Obama didn’t say it. That’s the lie.

Trump’ tweet:
“President Trump would need a magic wand to get to 4% GDP,” stated President Obama.

See those things called quotes? (“) You may not know this but their use indicates an actual quote.

Trump could say he has increased GDP by 50% and we have zero unemployment and you would still somehow find a way to parse his words to tell yourself that he is not lying.

Making up a quote is a lie, and I never tell lies. - George Washington

The best part? It wasn’t even his only lie this morning:

You do know that Obama had 4% and even 5% growth quarters right? They’re certainly possible. What many people don’t think will happen is sustained 3-4% GDP growth. And we actually lost manufacturing jobs last month. FYI.

In a PBS Town hall in June 2016 Obama said this:

"He just says, ‘Well, I’m going to negotiate a better deal.’ Well, what, how exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have? And usually the answer is, he doesn’t have an answer.”

:ok_hand:

so Obama did not use the words; magic, wand, and 4.2, in the same sentence. thanks for clearing that up and confirming the OP

Literally quoted in the opening post, and it doesn’t say what Trump said - nothing about the GDP at all.

Trumpers seem to have as much problems with reading as Trump does telling the truth.

I thought I was responding to this comment.

Obama started the “magic wand” narrative so ether suck it up or shut up because any paraphrasing or comment that responds on that narrative is valid. IMO

If I responded to the wrong person blame it on this message board format. :angry:

He used the phrase Magic Wand, but he wasn’t talking about the GDP, and never even mentioned it in his speech. Trump fabricated the quote.

Why is this hard?
