    Are you saying you never heard Fox News constantly calling out President Obama for what they claimed were lies about practically everything he did or said?

    Reminiscing? what's the matter? don't like the "fish bowl"????

    Tough, it's going to take a lot more than hand wringing and whining about the media to stop this, how about a nice impeachment pie? with a cup of regret????

    you miss that whole "if you like your doctor you can keep them" saga. Right-wingers still bring that one up. Took about 2 sec to find this one.

    The difference now is that Trump has convinced his supporters to go out and call anything reported on his lies as "fake news". That and , as your OP indicates, there suddenly a lot of selective amnesia going on in right wing circle.

    All False statements involving Barack Obama | PolitiFact

    The media did report it when Obama lied. Obama didn't lie on a daily basis, though.

    The media can't help it if Trump lies on a constant basis. What? They're supposed to pretend he doesn't?

    used to be using the term "double standard" would suffice ? Not so much since Trump took office. We need new terms to describe the ginormous right-wing Obama/Trump equivocating going on. Maybe "triple somersault" standard.

    Trump is posing, promoting, provoking. His lies, so far, are irritating, maddening and mostly irrelevant.

    The Obama lies have occurred in critical situations and are related to critical congressional actions or national emergencies.

    Smart people in the Trump administration mostly ignore his lies. The press mostly sees them as an opportunity.

    As the trump administration progresses, watch for lies that matter. Looking backward, Obama did many of the same things, but we have a record of those times when it mattered a lot.

    You don't get it. When will you get it?

    President Obama wasn't a dick.

    People did not hate President Obama.

    The world hates Donald Trump. Deal with it.

    Trump falsely accused his predecessor of wiretapping his phone. He then called on Congress to investigate his lies. He's also insulted one of our closest allies by , again, falsely claiming they were complicit in Obama spying on him. It's a hell of a lot more than how you characterize it when a German reporters calls him out for it. And that wasn't the first time that has happen. It seems like every time he visits with a head of state a reporter from that country questions Trump's false claims. James Comey is going to be testifying tomorrow. It is highly likely that he'll erode Trump's credibility even further. These are matters of national security. How on Earth could you possibly reach the conclusion that they are not critical to the American people and our allies?
