Good economic news is never bad enough for the liberal media. The Bureau of Labor Statistics recently released an impressive report on job growth in July. Specifically, Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 1.8 million in July, and the unemployment rate fell to 10.2 percent. In context, economists had forecast a 1.48 million job increase and the unemployment rate to hover at 10.6 percent, according to CNBC. That means predictions were off by roughly 320,000 jobs. CNBCs headline read: Payrolls increase by nearly 1.8 million, topping expectations despite coronavirus resurgence.

This BS with the jobs numbers is SOP since W.

You watch- they will also spin the EO on the stimulus relief- claiming that their opposition to it was just and moral and in America’s best interest... because Trump’s EO and the Republicans plans ‘didn’t feed the poor starving little children in America’, or some such nonsense (Nancy pelosi was saying that to Chris Wallace- so you know this was the idiotic line they were gonna push)
The economists need to be fired if they can’t make accurate projections.
If President Trump cured cancer the headline would be:
“Trumps forces thousands of health care professionals onto unemployment. Film at 11.”
