Fareed Zakaria: Obama Admin ‘Largely Scandal-Free’ Operated ‘Under a Microscope, Because He Looked Different’

At the conclusion of Wednesday’s CNN special, “The Legacy of Barack Obama,” host Fareed Zakaria argued the Obama administration “was largely scandal-free, and he did it all the while under a microscope, because he looked different.”

While discussing the Democratic Party’s electoral defeats during the Obama administration, Zakara said that it is possibly Obama’s failure, but “it is equally likely that the currents were stronger than any one person could shift. In recent years, America has gone through enormous economic, technological, political, and cultural change, and in some parts of the country, there has been a backlash to that change, and to an African-American president. It remains unclear whether the country was ready for Obama’s vision.”

He added that Obama’s administration “was largely scandal-free, and he did it all the while under a microscope, because he looked different.”
