Here’s how politics works in the modern era, when more the half the electorate hates the other party or candidate so much they won’t even listen, and therefore is willing to believe anything, so long as it’s an attack on the other guy.
Marco Rubio barely waited for President Obama to finish his speech at a Maryland mosque before attacking him for something he never said.
Marco accused the President of being divisive.
“Always pitting people against each other. Always! Look at today: He gave a speech at a mosque. Oh, you know, basically implying that America is discriminating against Muslims,” Rubio whined.
Never mind that not once did the president “pit people against each other,” said nothing of the sort, and in fact said the OPPOSITE, it doesn’t matter. The only point is that the President had to be attacked, and it doesn’t matter that it has no relation to reality.
Here’s a video of the President’s full speech. See if you can spot where he pitted people against each other.
