Speaking at his final press conference from the White House, Obama decided to tackle the prickly topic of "voter fraud" saying that the notion that "there are a whole bunch of people out there who are not eligible to vote and want to vote" is just "fake news".
"This whole notion of voting fraud, this is something that has constantly been disproved. This is 'fake news'."
"The notion that there are a whole bunch of people out there who are not eligible to vote and want to vote. We have the opposite problem. We have a bunch of people who are eligible to vote, who don't vote."
“It’s a very easy thing for Republicans to say, “Well, they’re bussing people in.” Well, you know what? We’ve been bussing people in to deal with you fucking assholes for fifty years and we’re not going to stop now, we’re just going to find a different way to do it."
“When I do this I think as an investigator first – I used to do the investigations. I think backwards from how they would prosecute, if they could, and then try to build out the method to avoid that.”
