This piece is ‘so, so, so important’ that it completely ignores the scandals of the Obama administration.
And they wonder why we make fun of them.

From the Washington Post:
Disillusioned staffers try to make their peace with flawed presidents. Clinton aide Paul Begala “sank into a deep depression” during the Monica Lewinsky scandal, Baker writes and vowed never again to appear on television defending the president. (Spoiler: It was a vow he did not honor.) White House Chief of Staff Erskine Bowles sought to keep his distance from the nitty-gritty of the whole affair: When former United Nations ambassador Bill Richardson wanted to describe how he’d offered Lewinsky a job, Bowles interrupted: “I don’t want to know a f—ing thing about it!” And during Watergate, Haig and Nixon lawyer James St. Clair refused to read transcripts or listen to certain portions of the president’s tapes until late in the game. They didn’t want to know, either.
For Trump staffers and enablers, the dilemma is different. There are few illusions about their leader left to be shattered. Their true challenge is less about surviving Trump’s eruptions than simply living with the choice they’ve made, convincing themselves that service to the nation — passing a tax cut, forestalling a war, reducing immigration — is worth it.
In all honesty, we’re shocked they bothered to share Clinton’s scandals.

Not a smidgen.
I don’t see Obama’s scandals mentioned. Can Carlos update his article? Thanks.

Wouldn’t count on it.
No mention of scandals by The Precious™ Obama, though. So, so pathetic, but so, so typical of the #Cult44Media

They might as well just be honest about being the propaganda wing of the Democratic party at this point.
When a liberal CNN commentator says it’s important it’s more than likely BS propoganda

So, so weird.
You’re missing a “so.” Arguably the most important “so."
