Reince Priebus says President Obama “has been lying to the American people.”
“The American people are seeing Barack ObamaBarack ObamaWATCH LIVE: Obama speaks at African American Museum opening Obama talks racial tension at African-American museum opening Trump in 2011: Clintons ‘have done so much’ for blacks MORE for what he is. He says one thing and does another. He’s been lying to the American people,” he said in interview on Fox News’s “Hannity” show Thursday night.
Priebus serves as chairman of the Republican National Committee.
In 2011, officials told the Boston Globe Obama had never met his uncle, who at the time, had been arrested for drunk driving. Carney, however, clarified that account was based on records including the president’s memoir, but didn’t come directly from Obama himself. The uncle was granted legal residency in Boston this week.
“These little lies, like, you know, lying about whether you met someone or not that's been significant in your life—listen, those are big things because it goes to the character of the person that you're dealing with. And President Obama is proving himself not to be trustworthy on the small things and now the very big things,” he added.
