President Obama is not too happy about the fact that Donald Trump is going to succeed him as president, but he’s still pretty satisfied with the legacy he’s going to leave behind.

For example, during a press conference earlier this week, Obama congratulated himself for leading an administration “without significant scandal.”

He’s absolutely right, if you don’t count things like the Benghazi terrorist attack (and the effort to blame it on a YouTube video), the IRS targeting of conservative nonprofit groups, the debacle at the Department of Veterans Affairs, the “Fast and Furious” gunrunning operation that resulted in the death of an American border agent, the administration’s efforts to target American citizens in lethal drone strikes, the fact that a secretary of state named Hillary Clinton was investigated by the FBI for conducting government business on a private email server, the strong-arming of intelligence agencies to present of rosier picture of the war against ISIS…

You get the idea.
