Former Obama White House press secretary Jay Carney said on CNN’s New Day Tuesday that Obama’s presidency was completely scandal-free.
Carney was asked by New Day co-host Alisyn Camerota what he thought Obama’s legacy is beyond not having any personal-life scandals?
“I think that it was scandal-free beyond his personal life,” Carney said. “The man’s integrity, his decency and his optimism about America that he embodied and pursued, I think will be his legacy.”
Carney added that working for Obama was a very profound experience, knowing that the values emanating from the top were “patriotic and pure” in a way that had become seemingly rare in modern American politics.
“It was an honest and sincere effort driven towards the idea of making America better and improving the lives of everyday Americans.” Carney said.
Camerota then pushed back against Carney’s assertions, stating that Republicans certainly don’t think the Obama administration was scandal-free.
Carney sounds a lot like Obama-bot Valerie Jarrett who said that the President was very proud of the fact that there hasn’t been a scandal under his watch.
Both Carney and Jarrett have seemingly blocked from their collective memories Benghazi, Clinton’s private email server, the IRS targeting of Tea Party groups, etc.
Revisionist history is alive and well in Obama world.
