Barrack Obama recently made the news and this time it’s absolutely disgraceful.
So much so, it’s not even laughable. Obama’s arrogance is astonishing.
Recently speaking off-the-record, Obama talked about the drama-free nature of his White House and said it was a “low bar” now to avoid embarrassing presidential scandals.
He took a pot shot at President Trump and his administration during a close-door speech in Boston last week, saying that his White House “didn’t have a scandal that embarrassed us.”
But audio of the speech was leaked to Reason, and while Obama doesn’t mention his successor by name, he did raise the specter of scandal.
“We didn’t have a scandal that embarrassed us,” Obama said. “I know that seems like a low bar.” He added, “You didn’t hear about a lot of drama inside our White House.”
In reality, Obama has presided over some of the worst scandals of any president in recent decades.
On the contrary, the media’s failure to cover the Obama administration critically has been a scandal in itself.
In a nutshell, there were the multiple insistence’s by Vice President Joe Biden, including telling an audience in Danville, Va., during the 2012 campaign that Mitt Romney’s policies as president will put them “back in chains.” There was also the controversy surrounding press secretary Robert Gibbs clashing with first lady Michelle Obama and adviser Valerie Jarrett.
Additionally, Obama seems to forget about the State Department email with Hillary Clinton, Operation Fast and Furious with his A.G., IRS abuses, Benghazi, Hacking, and Veterans Affairs.
All of these scandals were accompanied by a lack of transparency so severe that 47 of Mr. Obama’s 73 inspectors general signed an open letter in 2014 decrying the administration’s stonewalling of their investigations.
One reason for Obama’s penchant for secrecy is his habit of breaking rules—from not informing Congress of the dubious prisoner swap involving Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl and the Taliban, to violating restrictions on cash transfers to Iran as part of a hostage-release deal.
Following Obama’s remarks, many came forward calling out his undeniable lies. Michelle Malkin and American Hero Kris “Tanto” Paranto stepped up punching back.
Michelle tweeted, “Benghazi victims Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods were unavailable for comment. Slain Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, slain ICE agent Jaime Zapata & the soldiers who died searching for traitor Bowe Bergdahl were unavailable for comment.”
Additionally, Kris Poranto tweeted, “Did you really just say that

Mr. Paronto was part of the CIA annex security team that responded to the terrorist attack on the US Special Mission in Benghazi, Libya, September 11th, 2012, helping to save over 20 lives while fighting off terrorists from the CIA Annex for over 13 hours.
He can confirm the true account of the events of September 11, 2012, when terrorists attacked the US State Department Special Mission Compound and a nearby CIA station called the Annex in Benghazi, Libya. A team of six American security operators fought to repel the attackers and protect the Americans stationed there. Those men went beyond the call of duty, performing extraordinary acts of courage and heroism, to avert tragedy on a much larger scale.
We dare Obama to say that to Kris Paronto’s face.
