The Left continues to slurp their yummy hate and rage smoothies from MSM.
So fortunately for them, they won’t have to cringe or break a Starbucks window because this headline-worthy-headline is being suppressed…
In just one month of President Trump being in office our national deficit has been reduced by 12 billion dollars!
This is compared to a 200 billion increase in Obama’s first month.
What WAS printed in MSM was plenty of ridicule and poo-poos.
The Hill, reported,
Later in the day, the president of the nonpartisan Committee for a Responsible Budget said that while the debt outstanding did decline by $12 billion in his first month, it had nothing to do with new policies implemented by his administration.
“It is true the debt outstanding declined by $12 billion in the first month of Donald Trump’s presidency. We applaud the president for focusing on the debt as an important metric of success and economic health, but would point out that the improvement this early in his term has to do with normal fluctuations in spending and revenues rather than new policies he has implemented,” Maya MacGuineas said.
Bloomberg Politics has not kept up with the news.
They didn’t get the memo that President Obama was responsible for the mind-blowing national debt of 20 trillion dollars. And that Obama’s been out of the White House for the last month. So in Pelosi dementia-drive, they’re giving Obama credit for this success! If it’s simply random and not a success, why give credit to anyone?
“Anything that has happened to the debt has been on autopilot since Obama left,” said Laurence Kotlikoff, an economics professor at Boston University. “If anything, he is taking credit for something Obama did.”
Forbes stated, “The truth is that these numbers bumble about near randomly.” Wow! There must have been a LOT of random bumbling when BHO was in charge.
MSM just won’t quit with the bias already.
But they still want to be invited to the press parties. If their darling career criminal Hillary had “won” the election, would they be poo-pooing these figures?
However, if Lefties are getting their facts from places like Mother Jones, it’s easy to see why they’re skipping class and tearing their clothes off in outrage! According to this article (that had the audacity to blast “Fake News”) they state,
During Obama’s presidency, he turned around America’s finances. We went from a deficit of $80 billion in 2010 to a surplus of over $100 billion in his final year. Why didn’t the mainstream media ever report that?
Uh… Maybe because it’s too fake even for them? WOW. Mother Jones must really be from Jones Town! MSM outlets wish they had the chutzpah to print something that whacked. All of them agree that it reached close to the 20 trillion mark.
Business Insider reported,
As part of the broader economic legacy of President Barack Obama, from jobs to the stock market, one of the most notable changes has been the increase in the national debt.
Based on quarterly data released by the US Treasury, the debt at the end of 2008 — just before Obama took office — stood at roughly $10,699,805,000,000.
As of the third quarter of 2016, the most recent data available, the debt as Obama is set to leave office stood at $19,573,445,000,000.
Herman Cain spoke up.
On Fox & Friends Herman Cain complained that the media is ignoring the reduction of the deficit. But MSM bashed him because even though he is an amazing role model for the black community, he’s also a conservative, soooo..…
President Trump was pleased so he Tweeted. Of course that was also ridiculed. Because it’s so unusual for Presidents and politicians to announce their successes.
Whatever they report or don’t report, having 12 billion slashed from our staggering deficit is worthy of a celebration.!
What is not worthy of celebration is MSM’s continued attacks on our fairly elected President. All his haters will share the benes of a burgeoning economy and a safer country, but they’ll never be grateful. Or admit they were wrong.
BTW-do you find it bizarre that the media and their leftie lapdogs still ridicule President Trump for tweeting even though it seems that all politicians and government officials tweet nowadays?
