LAUGHABLE: Obama Claims He ‘Didn’t Have Scandals As President’

You have to give Obama credit for one thing. He is utterly shameless about self-promotion and lying with a straight face. He recently claimed that unlike Trump, his presidency didn’t have any scandals. Is he kidding?

Newsweek reported:

BARACK OBAMA TAKES JAB AT DONALD TRUMP: ‘I DID NOT HAVE SCANDALS AS PRESIDENT’

President Barack Obama took a light swing at his successor during a tech conference in Las Vegas on Wednesday. His eight years in office were scandal free, he told the audience.

“I didn’t have scandals, which seems like it shouldn’t be something you brag about,” Obama joked.

President Donald Trump’s presidency has thus far been racked with scandalous allegations, but Obama later hedged his barb. “But actually,” he said, “if you look at the history of the modern presidency, coming out of the modern presidency without anybody going to jail is really good. It’s a big deal.”

The reason his presidency was relatively controversy free, he said, was because he was accepting of bad news. “No one in my White House ever got in trouble for screwing up as long there wasn’t malicious intent behind it,” he said.
