Gutfeld on no drama Obama


♪ ♪>>Greg: LET’S ADMIT IT, AMERICA. WE MISS BARACK OBAMA. IN A RECENT SPEECH HE SAID HE HAD NO REAL SCANDALS IN HIS WHITE HOUSE. A JAB AT TRUMP.>>WE DID HAVE A SCANDAL THAT EMBARRASSED US. SEEMS LIKE A LOW BAR. YOU DIDN’T HEAR ABOUT A LOT OF DRAMA.>>Greg: NO DRAMA. TO QUOTE THE TSA OFFICER WHOSE DOG SNIFFED MY CARRY-ON, LET’S UNPACK THIS. WHY DIDN’T YOU HEAR MUCH ABOUT OBAMA’S WHITE HOUSE? WHO WAS BRAVE ENOUGH TO LOOK? NEVER A CLOSER RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE PRESIDENT AND THE MEDIA. IF THE WHITE HOUSE WAS A BED, THE PRESS WAS THE MOTT DOZING. THEY TOOK AND ATE YOUR SLEEPING PILL TO WAKE UP WHEN OBAMA’S POLICIES LEAD TO THE REJECTION OF THE PARTY IN THE ELECTION OF TRUMP. THEY SPRUNG TO ACTION. IT WASN’T LIKE THERE WEREN’T SCANDALS UNDER OBAMA. IRS, BENGHAZI. THE MEDIA’S BAR WAS SO HIGH IN TERMS OF INTEREST THEY DIDN’T EXIST. NOW YOU HAVE A WOKE PRESS CHASING DOWN ANY INCIDENT WHERE TRUMP HAS A BURGER WHOSE CENTER ISN’T HOT PINK. OBAMA’S SPEECH WAS AT A CONFERENCE WHERE PARTICIPANTS WERE REJECTED IF THEY SHARED ANY PART OF IT. YOU WANT TO KNOW WHY YOU NEVER HEARD ABOUT OBAMA? THERE IS YOUR ANSWER. COMPLIANCE. TRUMP’S WHITE HOUSE, THE MOST TRANSPARENT ENTITY SINCE SCOTCH TAPE. THE PRESS SCRAMBLES AFTER HIM AS IF THEY ARE MAKING UP FOR A LOST TIME. LIKE A MAN CLIMBING A MOUNTAIN AFTER A LIFETIME OF COUCH SURFING AND PIZZA. ISN’T IT TRUE, DANA, THAT OBAMA’S LACK OF SCANDALS WERE NOT ABOUT SCANDALS BUT A COMPLIANT PRESS THAT ALLOWED HIM TO OPERATE IN TOTAL SECRECY.>>Dana: HAVING BEEN A REPUBLICAN PRESS SECRETARY, I WOULD SAY YES, REPUBLICAN COMMUNICATORS ALWAYS HAVE TO WORK HARDER. I ALSO THINK ONE OF THE THINGS OBAMA SAID IS THERE WERE NO SCANDALS THAT EMBARRASSED US. IF YOU ARE NOT CAPABLE OF EMBARRASSMENT, THEN THAT WOULD BE TRUE. THE OTHER THING IS, IT IS TRUE THAT THERE IS LESS DRAMA. THERE WAS LESS DRAMA AND THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION, LOOKING AT PERSONNEL ANNOUNCEMENTS AND BACKBITING IN THE FIRST EIGHT MONTHS OF THE THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION. THE OTHER THING IS THAT ALL OF THE OBAMA PEOPLE WHO WORKED FOR HIM, THEY HAVE SAID FROM THE BEGINNING THAT EVEN AS HE ENDED HIS PRESIDENCY, THE ONE THING THEY WERE SO PROUD OF IS THEY HAD NO SCANDALS. HE BECAME A WROTE TALKING POINT. “NO SCANDALS” IS THE NEW “NO COLLUSION.” EVERYONE SAYS IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN AS THOUGH IT WILL FINALLY SINK IN.>>Greg: I REMEMBER MSNBC, IF YOU CRITICIZED PRESIDENT OBAMA, YOU WERE RACIST. THAT WAS A GOOD IMMUNE BUBBLE TO KEEP ANY CRITICISM OR ANYBODY FROM LOOKING INTO ANYTHING.>>Jesse: VERY EFFECTIVE. YOU GLOSSED OVER PRETTY BIG OBAMA SCANDAL. THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE WAS HUGE. OBVIOUSLY THAT WAS A FORGERY. HE PULLED ONE OVER ON THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. STILL GETTING TO THE BOTTOM OF THAT. [LAUGHTER]>>Juan: YOU WON’T GIVE UP.>>Jesse: I AM TEASING. I BELIEVE HIM. I THINK YOU ARE RIGHT. IT IS ALL ABOUT THE PRESS. THIS IS BUT THE PRESS SAID ABOUT BENGHAZI. IT WAS A REPUBLICAN CONSPIRACY. THEY DIDN’T PROTECT ONE OF THEIR OWN AMBASSADORS ON THE ANNIVERSARY OF 9/11 AFTER WARNING SIGNS AND LYING ABOUT IT. AND THAT’S A REPUBLICAN CONSPIRACY? THEY SAID THE IRS SCANDAL WAS BIPARTISAN EVEN THOUGH 95% OF THE GROUPS THAT WERE TARGETED WERE CONSERVATIVE. THEY SAID THE AERON DEAL WAS GREAT DIPLOMACY WHEN THEY W GREAT DIPLOMACY WHEN THEY E GREAT DIPLOMACY WHEN THEY S GREAT DIPLOMACY WHEN THEY N GREAT DIPLOMACY WHEN THEY T THEM CASH THAT WOUND UP IN HEZBOLLAH’S HANDS. WE ARE PASSING OVER THE BERGDAHL TRADE. HALF A BILLION DOLLARS IN TAXPAYER MONEY. THE VA SCANDAL. PEOPLE DIED. GOVERNMENT BUREAUCRATS GOT BONUSES. I FOUND A LIST OF WHAT “THE NEW YORK TIMES” SAYS TRUMP SCANDALS. READY FOR THESE? KELLYANNE CONWAY PROMOTED IVANKA’S FASHION LINE ON TV. GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS STAYED IN TRUMP HOTELS. IF THAT IS THE BAR, COME ON. ANYTHING IS A SCANDAL.>>Greg: THAT IS A GOOD POINT. I FORGOT ABOUT THE VA. WHAT I LEARNED FROM PRESIDENT OBAMA, MY LIFE WOULD BE EASIER IF I WAS A LIBERAL. NO ONE QUESTIONS YOUR COMPETENCE. I SHOULD BE A LIBERAL. MY LIFE WOULD BE EASIER.>>Juan: YOU WOULD HAVE A HARD TIME HERE AT FOX. [LAUGHTER] I THINK FOX WAS ABSOLUTELY VIGOROUS IN PURSUING EVERY BENGHAZI, IRS.>>Greg: FAIR AND BALANCED. WE HAD TO.>>Juan: YOU SAY IT’S A SCANDAL. THERE’S A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN NITPICKING PIMPLES AND STUMBLING AND A HUGE ROCK FALLING ON YOU AND CRUSHING. THAT’S 19 PEOPLE INDICTED. FIVE PEOPLE PLED GUILTY.>>Kimberly: THEY ARE NOT EVEN LIVING HERE.>>Jesse: ANY TROUBLE FOR SHOW PLEAD THE FIFTH OR DESTROY EVIDENCE?>>Juan: NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR. TRUMP IN THE OVAL OFFICE TALKING TO RUSSIANS ABOUT NATIONAL SECRETS.>>Jesse: WHAT ABOUT REVEREND WRIGHT?>>Juan: YOU TALK ABOUT WHAT’S GOING ON. I DON’T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED IN NIGER. FOUR PEOPLE DEAD, NO REPORT, NOTHING. YOU ARE DEALING WITH — HOW ABOUT ROB PORTER BEATING UP HIS WIVES. YOU CAN STAY. IMAGINE IF THAT — IMAGINE IF OBAMA HAD A PERSONAL LAWYER PAYING OFF PORN STARS?>>Greg: THAT WOULD BE IMPRESSIVE.>>Kimberly: FACT WOULD BE INTERESTING FOR A LOT OF REASONS. I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT YOU HAVE TO COVER THE MUELLER INVESTIGATION. WE ARE COVERING FISA WARRANTS, HOW THEY WERE OBTAINED, THE PROPRIETY, THE ETHICS, THE FACTS AND SUBSTANCE. WHEN YOU SEE WHAT WE DID HERE, WE COVERED EVERYTHING IN A HEALTHY WAY, WHETHER IT WAS SOLYNDRA, BENGHAZI, FAST AND FURIOUS, LOIS LERNER. THERE WAS A PLETHORA.
