"There’s proof after proof after proof that he is a purveyor of untruths," Palin told Hannity. "Our country has to love truth. We have to be seekers of truth. We have to be willing to follow truth. And there are so many untruths that Barack Obama is leading people to still."

Palin said that Obama, as one of the leading voices in the Democratic Party, is still leading many people in America toward "untruths."

"The provisions about it’s OK to kill a baby in the womb — there are so many things that Barack Obama stands for still and he just doesn’t get it. The solution to our issues in this country, it all comes down to simply loving truth. He does not represent nor love truth," Palin said. 

Earlier this month, Palin also expressed her displeasure with Obama's book in a post on Facebook. 

"Dear President Obama, Hi! Media reports that your new book blames me for a drastic shift in the GOP twelve years ago. Just wanted to drop a line to thank you, and say how honored I am," Palin wrote before expressing that she is impressed with the growth that she has seen in the Republican Party since her 2008 run.
