Sarah Huckabee Sanders EVISCERATES Obama After He Tries To Take Credit For Trump Success

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was on a tear on Twitter yesterday. She shredded former President Barack Obama with some white-hot criticism that he more than had coming. She bluntly said that Obama did not deserve any credit for the apparent improvement in the economy. And he doesn’t. He laughably tried to claim last week that despite “resistance at every step of the way,” his administration’s efforts to fight climate change resulted in a better economy. “As we took these actions, we saw the U.S. economy grow consistently,” Obama said. “We saw the longest streak of job creation in American history by far — a streak that still continues, by the way.” He then had the nerve to add: “Thanks Obama.” And then he winked to the crowd. That’s the biggest load of bull feces I have ever heard.

Trump deserves the credit for the improvement in the economy, not Obama. I know a lot of people who were unemployed the whole time Obama was in office. He had us in a quasi-depression. There were no jobs for eight long years. Under President Trump that has finally started turning around. The stock market is up 30 percent and over 1,000 manufacturing jobs have been created. Businesses are coming back to the US again and Trump is about to slash taxes that will not only create a ton of new jobs, but will cause the economy to boom even more. Obama was the only president to not experience any form of job growth during his time in office. Give me a freaking break.

Many critics of Trump predicted doom and gloom when he came into office. They said the economy would crash and unemployment would surge even more. Liberal New York Times columnist Paul Krugman predicted economic ruin with no end in sight under the new president. Specifically, he said that the markets would “never recover” thanks to Trump. Krugman is a socialist who is far more wrong than right anymore. He was definitely wrong on this one.

“It really does now look like President Donald J. Trump, and markets are plunging. When might we expect them to recover? If the question is when markets will recover, a first-pass answer is never,” he wrote. “We are very probably looking at a global recession, with no end in sight. I suppose we could get lucky somehow. But on economics, as on everything else, a terrible thing has just happened.” That was a major ‘fail’ and a lie on Krugman’s part. I don’t think we’ve heard from him much since then.

I will say this, the unemployment rate is still as fake under Trump as it was under Obama. The actual unemployment rate is still much higher than they are claiming. That’s because the numbers are continuously doctored. Individuals who have been looking for a job longer than four weeks are not counted as participating in the labor force, they are considered “no longer actively seeking a job.” “Back in December 2000, the unemployment rate was 3.9%. But that month, the labor force participation rate — the share of the population that’s either working or looking for a job — was 67%. The current rate: 62.7%. Things are definitely improving under Trump, but we’ve got a long way to go. If the labor force participation rate were the same today as it was in 2000, the official unemployment rate would be more like 10%.

Some of this can be explained by the baby boomer generation retiring. But that doesn’t account for anywhere near all of it. While the number of people above age 65 climbed by 14.3 million over the past 17 years, the population not in the labor force swelled by 25 million. But again, most of the unemployment can be laid at the feet of Barack Obama. Trump’s deregulation and tax cuts are improving things in the economy, but the damage done by Obama was more massive than most realize.
