Speaking with ABC’s “The View,” recently-announced 2020 presidential hopeful Joe Biden gushed over his time as Vice President under former President Barack Obama, boasting that their administration had “not one single whisper of scandal.”
Although Democrats and the media have frequently parroted this falsehood in their efforts to virtually canonize Obama, his administration was not without scandal – something conservatives quickly pointed out, following Biden’s comment.

Quickly, conservatives flocked to social media to refute Biden’s claims of a scandal-free administration, pointing to incidents such as Benghazi, the disastrous Iranian Nuclear Deal, Operation Fast and Furious, and the spying on then-candidate Donald Trump’s campaign.
For Biden, who has attempted to woo liberal voters by harkening back to the “glory days” of he and his boss, Barack Obama, his memory of an administration without scandal appears to have grown foggy with age.
If Obama didn’t have “one single whisper of scandal,” explain this:
• “If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor”
• Iran deal
• Spying on Trump’s campaign
• Hillary’s private server
• Fast & Furious
• IRS targeting conservatives
• VA abuse https://t.co/QIwhadhJq8

This is literal propaganda from the Obama administration. It was plagued by scandal. That is why they feel the need to say it so much: “If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth.” https://t.co/Km2NAFIkU8

You forgot all the drone strikes, the disasters of Syria and Libya, ISIS taking over vast swathes of territory, and Russia seizing half of Ukraine. But yeah, sure, “no scandal”. Democrats really think people are stupid
