Barack Obama was the worst President in history.
Ever since leaving the White House, Obama has attacked Donald Trump and engaged in revisionist history to recast his eight disastrous years in office as a success.
But Obama went off the deep end when he said seven words that proved he is the biggest liar of all time.
Obama’s attempts to rewrite history now include him lying about how “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.”
The Obama administration was awash in scandals.
Mark Hemmingway of the Weekly Standard picked this laughable claim apart by pointing out that two of Obama’s numerous scandals – Operation Fast and Furious and the attacks at Benghazi – both resulted in people dying:
“So what would constitute a “major” scandal? Would it involve, say, dead bodies? The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives gave thousands of guns to Mexican drug cartels; they used some of them to kill dozens of people, including American border patrol agent Brian Terry. When Congress tried to investigate why the ATF gave away so many guns and failed to track them, the Department of Justice engaged in unprecedented stonewalling. The department withheld 92 percent of the documents requested and forbade 48 relevant employees from speaking to congressional investigators. Attorney General Eric Holder was ultimately held in contempt of Congress, with 17 Democrats supporting the measure. An explanation for why the ATF gave thousands of guns to violent criminals has yet to emerge—but we are to understand that this is not a “major” scandal.
Four Americans, including the ambassador to Libya, died in a premeditated terrorist attack in Benghazi two months before Obama’s reelection. The White House claimed, though it almost immediately had evidence to the contrary, that the raid was fallout from a spontaneous protest over an American anti-Muslim YouTube video. The maker of the video was promptly arrested on old, unrelated charges. The CBS news program 60 Minutes recorded Obama refusing to rule out the possibility Benghazi was a terrorist attack in an interview the day after it occurred but didn’t broadcast it. A transcript of Obama’s stunning concession was quietly released a few days before the election, but by then the waters had been sufficiently muddied so that it was difficult for Mitt Romney to press his case that Obama had lied. (The GOP candidate was famously interrupted by moderator Candy Crowley when he tried to make this point in one of the presidential debates.) It probably helped that Obama’s deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes, who would later brag about dishonestly selling the Iran nuclear deal, is the brother of CBS News president David Rhodes. There were four dead bodies at the heart of a political cover-up, but the media attacked the subsequent investigation as an overreach of an obsessive Republican Congress.”
That is just scratching the surface.
During Obama’s tenure, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper was caught perjuring himself during Congressional testimony when he denied that Barack Obama was illegally spying on every American without a warrant.
Edward Snowden’s disclosures exposed a scandal that many critics believed rose to levels of impeachable offenses.
Obama also weaponized the IRS to target Tea Party groups for harassment.
And who can forget the famous Obamacare lie, “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.”
And finally, there was the lie Obama made on national television about Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
Obama claimed he learned about her illegal server from news reports—when in reality Obama exchanged emails with Clinton using her private email address.
The Obama administration was drenched in scandals.
And Obama knowing that he can claim he had no scandals and that the media will dutifully report on it as fact shows two things.
First, it demonstrates Obama is the worst liar in American history.
Second, it shows just how biased and corrupt the so-called “mainstream media” really is.
