Barack Obama's closest adviser said Sunday that the outgoing president has led a scandal-free administration – a statement that drew howls from conservatives.
Valerie Jarrett made that claim despite the nation's years-long focus on embarrassing episodes like the Operation Fast & Furious 'gunwalking' program, the swap of U.S. Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl for five high-risk Taliban terror suspects, and a laundry list of other deadly and politically damaging public controversies.
'The president prides himself on the fact that his administration hasn't had a scandal and he hasn't done something to embarrass himself,' she said in an interview broadcast Sunday on CNN's 'Fareed Zakaria GPS.'
You know, like Solyndra, drawing a red line, stabbing Israel in the back, paving the way for Iranian nukes, instrumental in the Muslim Brotherhood takeover in Egypt, etc.
He didn't do any of that.
'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,' Jarrett continued.

Lucky for her FOX was able to improve her recollection.
A Fox news host did 'seven seconds' of research and came up with a quick scandal list.
Any question why she is Barry's closest adviser?
