[Ed. – Not a smidgen of scandal]
Five years ago, former President Barack Obama revealed at a White House press briefing that he had no strategy to defeat the Islamic State.
Members of the press and a handful of right-wing and GOP cranks went wild … for the president’s choice of attire. Obama attended the briefing wearing a baggy tan suit. It was all reporters and commentators could talk about.
Newsrooms have since rewritten the history of that 2014 incident. Every year on the anniversary of Obama debuting his tan suit, a number of journalists and commentators claim it was the president’s critics who overreacted. They claim it was conservatives, not the newsrooms thatgushed like teenage fans, who turned the suit into a full-blown event.
Today, members of the press have tweaked further their false version of events. They now use the anniversary of the tan suit to claim the Obama administration was essentially scandal-free.
