CNN's Anderson Cooper debunks the rumor about President Barack Obama taking a $200 million per day trip to Asia. Michelle Bachmann is one of the people spreading it. The ding bat! But it's gaining traction because we have too many people in this country who believe whatever they read online or hear a politician or pundit saying and they don't check facts. Rush Limbaugh and others are saying this nonsense too. That's not surprising.
The rumor is so outrageous that even the military is speaking up to debunk it. Cooper said twice that there are plenty of reasons to oppose Obama and ways to do it with facts, and so, you don't have to make up stuff.
