Just two weeks ago we marked the end of Donald Trump's first year in office, and so far it's been a pretty wild ride. In a year full of scandals, each new one seemed to outdo the last. But no Presidency is without controversy, as one Twitter user reminded us.
They listed all the scandals from the Obama administration. And the list just kept going on and on and on...
Twitter never forgot the infamous tan suit scandal:
Oh yes the Audacity of Taupe. One of my all-time fav headlines— JJ Miller (@jjacobsmiller) February 4, 2018
Half way through I was like.... what about the tan suit?.... ahhhh there it is— Gene Eats Coney (@ejouppi2) February 4, 2018
Fine, I'll say it. I thought the tan suit looked great.— Andrew Trundle (@TrundleFancy) February 4, 2018
But some people believed others were looking back with rose-colored glasses:
I liked Obama, but no president lasts 8 years and has one scandal. Benghazi, not closing Guantanamo, more troops in Iraq, Obamacare failures, ATF Fast & Furious, and NSA & Snowden, come to mind immediately— Joshua Slinkard (@josh_slinkard) February 4, 2018
What you did here is quite adorable but not rooted in reality. First off, scandal vs. controversy is in the eyes of the beholder. Plenty of Obama scandals/controversies come to mind from IRS abuses to Obamacare lies and roll-out problems to Benghazi to Fast & Furious, et al.— CaliforniaDisasters (@CalDisasters) February 4, 2018
What about Fast and Furious? You don't think giving guns to Mexican cartels isn't a scandal? Every President has there's, none of them are perfect. But Trump is way worse, I won't forget that.— Brian Keller (@BrianKeller71) February 4, 2018
Still, it was a simpler time:
My my... now compare this with our current POTUS. This speaks volumes!!! SMH— Donna Michael (@Chinchin59) February 4, 2018
Controversy can follow every Presidency, but there's an important distinction between the man and the office:
Usually ‘scandal’ represents personal issues (watergate, Monica, “grab them by the pussy,” etc.) rather than policy. The larger point is that Obama and his family were under a microscope for 8 years and stayed clean the whole time. It’s impressive.— PLANNED PARENTHOOD GANG (@TBirdFirster) February 4, 2018
