 Obama used the friendly setting to urge voters not to be fooled by
what he said were untruths coming from Hillary Clinton's campaign.
"They're trying to bamboozle you. It's the same old okey-doke," he
said, using a slang phrase for a con. "Y'all know about okey-doke,
right? It's the same old stuff."
