CBS Anchor Agrees with Michelle: Obama Administration Faced 'No Scandals'

Eight years, and no scandals.  That would be a remarkable track record, if it were true.  This assertion is now quite familiar, of course, as Obamaworld has been working hard to install their revisionist version of history since late in the 44th president's second term.  We've heard it from top Obama aides, from his former Vice President (in pursuit of his own candidacy), and now the former First Lady.  I'm more or less willing to give Michelle a pass on this one -- but it's galling to see a CBS News anchor sit there and actively agree with this assertion -- which, by the way, came in the context of describing her view that unlike her husband's inaugurals, President Trump's did not look like "all of America:"

Does anybody believe she was capable of covering his tenure in office fairly -- especially in her treatment of his critics?  King's sycophantic endorsement of the 'no scandals' fairy tale should settle that question once and for all.  As for the substance of the claim, the Washington Free Beacon put together a montage recapping the supposed lack of scandals in early 2017.  Flashback:

In addition, I wrote this at the time:

I'd also add the journalist-targeting imbroglio to the list, as well as an illegal negotiation with terrorists, lying about shipping a cash ransom to a terrorist regime, lying about nuclear negotiations with said regime, and lying about doctoring the public record regarding the previous lie.


But hey, at least a foreign election interference scandal didn't occur on the Obama administration's watch, according to Uncle Joe
