Bill Maher falsely claims Marco Rubio is a ‘shameless liar’ about debt
Wow, what a shameless liar this Rubio guy is – Obama created more debt than Bush? Well, if you don't believe in science, why not math too?

Last August , PoltiFact, an organization not known for its right-wing bias, acknowledged that President Obama racked up more debt than President George W. Bush:
According to the Treasury Department’s count, the debt has grown $5.3 trillion since Obama took office in 2009, compared to $4.9 trillion in Bush’s eight years.
Of course, if we consider the additional debt accrued since the PolitiFact article was published — about $490 billion — Rubio’s claim is even more true.
Someone is shamelessly lying, but it isn’t Sen. Rubio.
