President Obama claimed there had been no “major scandal” in his administration during a Democratic fundraiser Sunday night in San Diego.
Obama made the comment while railing against Rep. Darrell Issa (R., Calif.), the former chairman of the House Oversight Committee who once called him “one of the most corrupt presidents” in modern history.
“Here’s a guy who called my administration perhaps the most corrupt in history–despite the fact that actually we have not had a major scandal in my administration–that, when Trump was suggesting that I wasn’t even born here, said, well, I don’t know, was not sure,” Obama said, according to PoliticoPlaybook. “This guy has spent all his time simply trying to obstruct, to feed the same sentiments that resulted in Donald Trump becoming their nominee.”
Issa, locked in a tough reelection battle, has touted Obama’s signing of a sexual assault bill he cosponsored, according to the Washington Examiner. Obama called it the “definition of chutzpah” after Issa’s earlier criticisms of him.
