At APEC Obama Blames “Fake News” for Hillary’s Drubbing (VIDEO)

Barack Obama continued his farewell tour on Sunday in Lima, Peru.


On Thursday in Germany Obama blamed fake news and social media for Hillary Clinton’s loss to Donald Trump.

“Part of what’s changed in politics is social media and how people are receiving information. It’s easier to make negative attacks and simplistic slogans than it is to communicate complex policies.”

On Sunday Barack Obama continued to rail against “fake news” in Lima, Peru.
Democrats want to blame fake news sites for Hillary’s shellacking.

As I’ve said before the concern I have has less to do with any particular misinformation or propaganda that’s being put out by any particular party and a greater concern about the general information from all kinds of sources, both domestic, foreign, on social media, that make if very difficult for voters to figure out what’s true and what’s not… In general if we have elections that aren’t focused on issues and are full of fake news and false information and distractions then the issue is going to be… what are we doing to ourselves from the inside.
