Barack Obama was in Brazil this week, and the topic of guns came up during one of his appearances. You can probably guess what happened next:
Obama tells Brazil crowd: "Some of you may be aware our gun laws in the United States don’t make much sense. Anybody can buy any weapon any time — without much if any regulation, they can buy it over the Internet, they can buy machine guns." pic.twitter.com/MFFTgaFwLS

Obama blatantly lies to the people of Brazil. You can buy any gun at any time on the internet. EVEN MACHINEGUNS! pic.twitter.com/PhBY54g7d8

BS detectors began to overheat immediately:

He's straight-up lying. https://t.co/POS0l8191D

President “if you like your plan you can keep it” would never lie! *Eye roll*
There's a rich irony in Obama lying about American gun laws while speaking in Brazil; a country with very restrictive gun control laws and a homicide rate about 5 times that of the U.S. https://t.co/V3QXgN4UF7

Bingo! Obama, of course, didn’t bother to spell any of that out for his audience.
That’s what he does best.

These are lies. Sure, you can buy machine guns ILLEGALLY. But that's like saying, "Anyone can murder people in our country. It happens every single day."

Literally every part of this is an absolute lie. It's astonishing. https://t.co/hcxkVFP5tC

Be right back guys. I just gotta pop down to the no-NICS machine gun corner store. Actually I'm feeling a little lazy. Maybe I can get Doordash to just bring me my brand new M240?

Remember when liberals were upset Trump tweeted a joke about Joe Biden from Japan? "Politics is supposed to stop at the water's edge!" they cried. Obama flat-out lies about the country in Brazil and… #Crickets https://t.co/DrtaDdEb84

I really don’t understand why people blatantly lie like this. https://t.co/T0Gr7OWcJc

This isn’t true a background check was run on me right on the spot when I went to buy my gun. if I didn’t pass the background check they would not have sold the gun to me.

And people wonder why the rest of the world has no understanding of our gun laws. Zero of what he said is true in any way

Fortunately for the MSM they were in a restful hibernation for the eight years Obama was president, and that continues to this day as it pertains to any claims he makes.
