As we told you yesterday, former VP and current 2020 candidate for the Democrat presidential nomination Joe Biden let loose with an attempted brag that echoed what Joe‚Äôs former boss once said about the Obama years:
'Just complete, utter dishonesty': Joe Biden hopes to get elected on the merits of this brazen, bald-faced lie https://t.co/KWYfSwYYYn

Biden‚Äôs claim of ‚Äúnot a whisper of scandal‚ÄĚ during the Obama years sparked massive eye rolls, and Dan Bongino counted some of the reasons why:
With the exception of:
-Fast & Furious
-The IRS scandal
-The AP phone records scandal
-The VA scandal
-Hatch Act violations
Biden is absolute right, they were scandal free. https://t.co/f6adQSfy2U

How‚Äôs that for starters? The list could go on, but yet Joy Behar let Biden make that claim without even batting an eye (she actually seconded the motion).
The thing he's proudest of is the way the media covered up the Obama administration's scandals.

If there wasn‚Äôt a whisper of scandal (as Biden claimed), it was at least in part because the MSM was in hibernation mode and didn‚Äôt do any whispering.
