Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) falsely claimed over the weekend that President Barack Obama was “paying to give arms to terrorists including Al-Qaeda,” which she warned was a signed that “we are in God’s End Times.”
Speaking to the Christian radio show Understanding the Times on Saturday, the Minnesota Republican incorrectly stated that “President Obama waived a ban on arming terrorists in order to allow weapons to go to the Syrian opposition.”
“Your listeners, U.S. taxpayers, are now paying to give arms to terrorists including Al-Qaeda,” she told host Jan Markell.
In fact, the Presidential Determination only allows “the U.S. Government to provide or license, where appropriate, certain non-lethal assistance inside or related to Syria.”
But that didn’t stop Bachmann from declaring that the president’s action was a harbinger of the Second Coming of Christ.
