EXCERPT:

CAMEROTA: “So, Valerie, when you watch what’s happened, let’s just say this week, okay, coming out of the White House with Rudy Giuliani changing the narrative saying that President Trump did actually reimburse Michael Cohen, his long-time fixer, for this hush money to Stormy Daniels and everything else that’s happened this week, what goes through your head?”
JARRETT: “Well, it’s impossible to keep up with all the twists and turns. I guess what I would say to you is this, Alisyn. and Chris Cuomo mentioned it at the top of the hour, credibility. The president that I had the pleasure of serving, President Obama, there was just nothing more important to him than his credibility, his honesty, his directness and his transparency with you in the press and of course the American people and his own team. He spent a lot of time and energy and focus on you and not on himself and thinking about what could we do to make our country strong, vibrant, grow our economy, make sure everybody gets a fair shot. As a result of doing that in his first term, he was re-elected for a second term. So that’s the basis of comparison I have.”
