Barack Obama believes if you just repeat a lie long enough, it will become the truth.
He tried it with Obamacare and the whole “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor”, until it blew up in his face.
Now he’s trying it again, but this latest lie is so ridiculous, no one is buying it.
At an international summit in Peru, Obama patted himself on the back for a scandal-free administration.

Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett repeated this assertion in a CNN interview.
The New York Post reported:
“The president prides himself on the fact that his administration hasn’t had a scandal and he hasn’t done something to embarrass himself,” Jarrett said in an interview broadcast on CNN Sunday.
The aide, also a close friend of Obama and his wife, Michelle, credited the first couple with being good people and getting good results.
“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,” Jarrett said.
Critics scoffed at the notion Obama’s time in office was free from scandal.
The Washington Free Beacon produced a video supercut of several Obama administration scandals ranging from Operation Fast and Furious, to Benghazi and the Veterans Administration’s shameful treatment of ill vets, to the IRS targeting Tea Party groups for harassment.
The video also mentions the biggest scandal of all – Hillary Clinton using a private email server while she was Obama’s Secretary of State.
Many observers feel these scandals that took place during Obama’s time in office contributed to the persistent negative feelings toward Hillary Clinton and ultimately led to the voters distrust of her.
Voters believed Hillary Clinton was lying and that her conduct was part of the “business as usual” policies in Washington.
And this helped lead to Donald Trump’s decisive Electoral College victory.
A scandal that took place right under Obama’s nose helped lead the American people to repudiate him by rejecting Hillary Clinton, the candidate running for his third term in office, which they saw to be a continuation of a scandal-plagued establishment.
Critics argue Obama is living in an alternate-reality bubble since his allies in the so-called “mainstream” media worked so hard to downplay all his many scandals.
