Carney served as press secretary during a series of key moments in the Obama presidency, including: the so-called "Birther movement" publicized by Donald J. Trump and Fox News; the elimination of Osama bin Laden by U.S. special operations; Obama’s announcement of his support for gay marriage; Obama’s election to a second term; the Sandy Hook shooting in Newtown, Connecticut; the passage of the American Tax Relief Act, which raised rates on high earners while extending tax breaks for most Americans; the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare; the government shutdown of October 2013; the shooting of Trayvon Martin; and the imposition of sanctions against Russia for its invasion and occupation of Crimea.

Carney said, "Virtually with no exception, everyone I dealt with in those administrations, whether I personally agreed or disagreed with what they thought were the right policy decisions or the right way to approach things, I never doubted that they were patriots,” he said. “I don’t feel that way now." He later walked back the comments with a tweet saying he has respect for countless patriots working in the United States government.

During the sixth game of the 2019 World Series, Carney sent out a tweet complaining about the officiating of the game. Carney tweeted that the officiating was a "disgrace," dubbing the umpires "a bunch of overweight, diabetic, half-blind geriatrics." He apologized the following day.
