President Barack Obama headlined a high dollar Manhattan fundraiser for Hillary Clinton Sunday where he made remarks blaming Fox News and Rush Limbaugh for Clinton not running away with the election against Donald Trump.
Obama spoke at the home of restaurateur Danny Meyer attended by about 65 people where tickets ranged from $25,000 to $250,000 according to the AP.
CNN’s Jim Acosta posted a copy of the pool report on Obama’s comments.

…”So this should not be a close election but it will be and the reason it will be is not because of Hillary’s flaws but rather because structurally we’ve become a very polarized society and if all you’re doing is watching Fox News and listening to Rush Limbaugh…a lot of misinformation on a regular basis, it’s very hard for you to think that you’re going to vote for somebody who you’ve been told is taking the country in the wrong direction.”
