Senior Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett says president is proud of his scandal-free administration

A top adviser to Barack Obama says that the president is proud of ending his two terms in office without having done "anything to embarrass himself."

In a recent interview, Valerie Jarrett told CNN's Fareed Zakaria, "The president prides himself on the fact that his administration hasn't had a scandal and that he hasn't done anything to embarrass himself. But that's not because he's being someone other than who he is. That's because that's who he is — that's who they are — and I think that's what really resonates with the American people."

Tom Fitton, head of conservative group Judicial Watch, disagrees with Jarrett's summation of the 44th American president's legacy. Fitton responded to the Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs official, noting her comments were "delusional."

"The Obama administration has a scandal rap sheet longer than my arm," said Fitton. "Between just the IRS abuses, Benghazi, and the Hillary Clinton scandals, this administration was even more corrupt than Nixon's."

Nevertheless, the president himself had expressed a similar sentiment while giving a speech in Peru less than two months ago, saying, "I am extremely proud of the fact that over eight years we have not had the kinds of scandals that have plagued other administrations."

In response, the Daily Wire posted a list of 11 events it claims qualify as scandals during his terms. The list includes those listed by Fitton, as well as allegations of phone records abuses and Iran hostage payments.
