What would be the name of this planet?
Former President Obama said in an interview that Fox News viewers and NPR listeners are living on different planets in terms of what news they consume.
“If you watch Fox News, you are living on a different planet than you are if you, you know, listen to NPR,” Obama told David Letterman on his new Netflix series “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction,” which started streaming on Friday.
The former president was referring to how the Russians were able to “exploit” different kinds of U.S. voters, who were “operating in completely different universes.”

The comments drew a strong reaction from Gingrich. “Many, many years from now in a nursing home, or a nice retirement community, Barack Obama will be still living in a fantasy life,” Gingrich said.
“He’ll think that Iran really wanted to have a deal, he’ll think that high taxes really work, he’ll think that welfare’s a good deal.”
Hannity said that there’s actually some truth to Obama’s argument about people living in “different information universes.”
“The mainstream media, they want to destroy Trump and they loved him,” Hannity said, referring to Obama. “It’s that simple.”
