Monday in Nevada, former President Barack Obama took an apparent jab at his successor President Donald Trump.
Obama said. “Here’s the good news, Nevada. Right now we have a chance to restore some sanity to our politics. Right now we can tip the balance of power to you, the American people. Because ultimately there is only one real check on abuses of power. There is only one real check on bad policy, and that is you and your vote.
He continued, “And you know, the great thing in Nevada, you do not have to wait two weeks. You can go ahead and vote right now. In Nevada, early voting is already underway. You can vote at any early voting site in your community.”
He added, “If you do not think it is important to vote, look at what the Republicans have done these past two years. Look at what they’re saying they’re going to do if you send it back for two more. Here is one simple fact—this is a fact. Unlike some, I try to state facts. I believe in facts. I believe in a fact-based reality and a fact-based politics. I don’t believe in just making stuff up.”
