While speaking at the University of Chicago Institute of Politics, former White House advisor David Axelrod claimed that there ‘”here hasn’t been a major scandal” during the Obama presidency. The UK Daily Mail,
The surprising boast came during a Q&A at the University of Chicago Institute of Politics, an organization he founded and leads.
‘I’m proud of the fact that basically you have had an administration in place for six years in which there hasn’t been a major scandal,’ Axelrod said. ‘And I think that says a lot about the ethical strictures of this administration.’
Audio and video of Axelrod’s remarks indicate the audience’s first reaction to his insistence that Obama has presided over a scandal-free government was a chorus of laughs – before friendly attendees quickly drowned them out with applause.
Conservatives have made a parlor game out of cataloging the Obama White House’s scandals, with tallies running into the dozens and some organized alphabetically.
