Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Valerie Jarrett Claims ‘Scandal-Free’ Obama ‘Hasn’t Done Anything to Embarrass Himself’ During His Presidency

As the clock continues to wind down on the Obama presidency — 17 days, 13 hours and 42 minutes as of this post, but who’s counting — his closest of close advisers, Valerie Jarrett, told CNN’s Fareed Zakaria in an interview which aired Sunday that the administration has been scandal-free.

Jarrett also said Obama hasn’t done anything to embarrass himself.

“The president prides himself on the fact that his administration hasn’t had a scandal and he hasn’t done something to embarrass himself. That’s because that’s who he is — that’s who they are — and I think that’s what really resonates with the American people.”

Not to nitpick, but regardless of whether Obama has embarrassed himself anytime during his presidency, to claim that his administration has been scandal-free at least borders on an attempt to rewrite history.

The New York Post quotes Tom Fitton, president of the government watchdog, Judicial Watch, who calls Jarrett’s claim “delusional.”

“This is delusional. The Obama administration has a scandal rap sheet longer than my arm. Between just the IRS abuses, Benghazi, and the Hillary Clinton scandals, this administration was even more corrupt than Nixon’s.”

Former top aide David Axelrod made a similar claim two years ago — saying that the administration hadn’t had any “major” scandals.

“I’m proud of the fact that basically you’ve had an administration that’s been in place for six years in which there hasn’t been a major scandal. And I think that says a lot about the ethical strictures of this administration.”

In addition to the scandals mentioned by Fitton, apparently, neither Jarrett nor Axelrod consider the ATF “Fast and Furious” gun-walking scandal “major.” A gun provided by the program was used to kill U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in 2010.
