Obama: Trump Has Accelerated “Truth Decay” [VIDEO]

The Hill reports:

Former President Barack Obama made some of his most pointed criticism of President Trump to date in an interview that aired on “60 Minutes” Sunday night, saying his successor has hastened “truth decay.”

“We have gone through a presidency that disregarded a whole host of basic institutional norms– expectations we had for a president that had been observed by Republicans and Democrats previously,” Obama said.

“And maybe most importantly, and most disconcertingly, what we’ve seen is what some people call ‘truth decay,’ something that’s been accelerated by outgoing President Trump, the sense that not only do we not have to tell the truth, but the truth doesn’t even matter,” he added.
