FULL TITLE: Obama, whose administration prosecuted and spied on reporters, claims Trump is very bad for criticizing newsrooms
Former President Barack Obama is right when he says his administrations attacks on the press can't be compared to President Trump's current crusade against the news media.
The Obama White House was far worse for press freedoms.
The former president spoke Friday afternoon at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, urging students to get involved in the November midterm elections. He dedicated a good deal of his address to drawing contrasts between his administration and the administration of President Trump. It was the regular sort of material from Obama. There was a lot about optimism, hope, change, etc.
The real whopper of a lie didnt come until later in his address when he criticized Trump for routinely attacking the press.
It shouldnt be Democratic or Republican to say that we dont threaten the freedom of the press because they say things or publish stories we dont like, the former president said. I complained plenty about Fox News, but you never heard me threaten to shut them down or call them enemies of the people. This is some grade-A, primo historical revisionism.
When it comes to being anti-media, Trump only talks a big game. And, boy, does he talk. Obama, on the other hand, is a man of action. As president, he did much more than complain about Fox News. His administration spent eight long years curbing the press freedoms of journalists of every stripe. Obama was a pro at this.

Spied on reporters, locked up filmmakers, spied on congress, used the epa and irs to target political opponents, punished unfriendly corporations...
The “magic negro”. What a total fraud.
Don’t forget: COLLUSION WITH THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD, and COVER-Up and LYING to the public about BENGHAZI, interfering in the election in Kenya as a US senator
The Kenyanesian Usurper belongs in Gitmo, but he had too many GOP accomplices for anything to happen to him.
collusion with the violent racist extremist group BLM
The Deep State still protects Obama’s tyranny and subversion.
Trump is very bad for “globalism.”
Looks like the Obama plan to fundamentally transform America had a small snag, but appears back on track. Obama never left.
POS Kenyan needs to be brought down now. Enough is quite enough from this filthy, lying gasbag.
Hey asshole. You never appeared on Fox News either, did you? Why is that?

All of which president Trump should be pointing out, over and over again, in his rallies- and then saying “And the msm calls me bad for this country? When have i ever done any of that? Seems like the msm is practicing ‘selective outrage’ and infact manufacturing outrage using false accusations against me when all the time, right under their noses, their candidate, barack, was pulling this crap right here in the USA”
I am guessing POTUS Trump will get around to pointing these facts out sooner or later.
Everything Obama said his speech landed at his own feet.
What’s more the dishonests presstitutes KNOW the truth.
The only 3 people who come to mind pointing it out (and I’m probably going to butcher names) are Dinesh Dsouza, Jay Sekulo, and that woman who discovered her computer had been hacked (I think she worked for Newsweek).
He appeared with Bill O several times...
If he can stop talking about NFL...
Trump needs new speech, needs to lift ban on all paper withheld by DOJ and FBI. He needs to to talk about and show proof of subversion and crimes of deep state and dems and higher up repubs...probably the reason the bottom hasn’t fallen on the deep state with the evidence before the elections as there so many repubs too involved it would confuse everyone as to who to vote for. As many repubs against him as it was dems...
