Today I need help. Twenty-four days into his administration, the continuing scandals of the Trump administration claim its first “internal” victim with the resignation of Michael Flynn. So why do I need help? Trump: One in 24 days. Obama: None in eight years? I can’t remember. In the eight years of the Obama administration I don’t recall that one senior member of his administration resigned in disgrace (or was fired). None. Nada. Rien. I came of age in the era of political controversy and disgrace. I barely remember the Johnson administration. I do remember Spiro Agnew resigning as Vice President and don’t get me started on Watergate. But it seems that Obama ran the cleanest administration in my memory.
So help me. Did I miss a scandal? Add a comment here or on Facebook. Who and what might I have missed?

I believe you are correct about the scandal-less Obama era. I don’t mind you taking Trump to task, but please leave Melania alone (future occupant of the new cabinet-level Secretary of Fashion).
