For the last eight years, conservatives and the right-wing media have made it a top priority to attack President Obama at every turn. With the election of Donald Trump, his surrogates and conservative news outlets have done their best to discredit the entire Obama administration.

Legacy talk

Moments after Barack Obama became the 44th President of the United States by defeating Republican nominee Sen. John McCain in 2008, the Republican Party carved out their number one mission. Led by Sen. Mitch McConnell, the GOP's top goal was to make Obama a one term president, regards of what impact it would have on the American people.

Republicans failed to succeed, and Obama was re-elected in 2012. While dealing with legit criticism along the way, the consensus is that Obama's legacy will be a positive one. Though many have that mindset, not everyone is in agreement, as was seen on the December 6 edition of "Hannity" on Fox News.

Joining Fox News host Sean Hannity was former Donald Trump campaign manager and current surrogate, Corey Lewandowski. Lewandowski has long been known to defend the former host of "The Apprentice" regardless of the situation, and his interview with Hannity was no different.

While Lewandowski often stretches facts to fit his narrative, like surrogates on both sides of the aisle, he made one claim that left many scratching their heads.

"Donald Trump, in the first four weeks of his presidency, has done more to help this country than I think Barack Obama has done in the last 4 years," Lewandowski said.

"I know that's a strong statement, but what we have seen is a commitment to our military again. A commitment to our business," Lewandowski continued. "His presidency is summed up in two words 'America first,'" Lewandowski concluded, while adding, "I love it."

Moving forward

While Corey Lewandowski's words are admittedly strong, Donald Trump has yet to even be sworn into office.

On Inauguration Day, January 20, the billionaire real estate mogul will become the 45th President of the United States, and only time will tell if his legacy will be as bright has his former campaign manager believes.
