As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Earnest: Obama Ran the Most Transparent Administration in History

Please, be serious.

From the Washington Examiner:

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest expressed annoyance that President Obama doesn’t get enough credit for being the “most transparent” president in history.

When asked by CNN’s Brian Stelter on Sunday about journalists’ complaints that the federal government isn’t efficient at answering FOIA requests, Earnest said they’ve made progress with the requests over the eight years.

Earnest added that there is really “no constituency in American politics for transparency in government beyond journalists.”

He added: “If this constituency of journalists are gonna be effective advocates for the issue that they care about, they need to remember that they have a responsibility not just to criticize those who are not living up to their expectations.

Looks like Earnest is trying to work on his own legacy issues. Meantime, the Weekly Standard wrote Sunday about how the White House tried to hide that it is letting Iran cheat on the nuclear deal.

  1. The magnitude of his lying for Obama never ceases to amaze me.
    I would think Josh has a barber shave him so he doesn’t have to look at his own face.

  2. JE hasn’t told the truth in years. He has no credibility left.

    This makes me kind of sad. I remember when he took the position and Keith said he was a good or decent or ok guy. Young and earnest really. Then he had a child, a son I think. And I thought this is a good thing.

    And then he willingly stepped into the Obama abyss and turned into this compromised sycophant.

    He will get a job, and probably a well paying one and people will probably think he’s great because of his previous position. But deep down he’s gotta know.

    Or maybe not. Maybe he is now as delusional as his boss.

  3. I can’t stop laughing at Ernest. He makes a fool of himself every day. I can’t decide if he believes all of that garbage he spills or not. But, how does he keep a straight face?
