Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, May 16, 2018

The good news this month began with an incredible jobs report. The unemployment rate fell to 3.9 percent, falling under 4 percent for the first time since 2000. Even better, unlike during the Obama presidency, the low jobless rate was not due to people giving up and leaving the workforce. Instead, since Trump's election, almost 1 million new workers have re-entered the labor market. That movement toward self-sufficiency reaps myriad benefits for our society including more stable families, lower crime, and less government dependency. In fact, an amazing 2 million Americans stopped receiving food stamps during fiscal 2017.

(cont.) In addition, the quality of the jobs improved as wages accelerated in the first quarter of 2018 at the fastest pace in a decade. This trend particularly benefits minorities. For example, in U.S. history, Hispanic unemployment has registered below 5 percent for only seven months, ever. Amazingly, six of those seven months have occurred in the past year under the pro-growth policies of this president. If President Trump is as racist as media pundits claim he is, he's remarkably bad at it.

A strong America at home supports a strong America abroad as well. On the international scene, this commander in chief, in contrast to his two predecessors, is restrained in his use of American might, but also clear-eyed in his admonitions to our adversaries.

"Unemployment rate only dropped because more people are out of labor force & have stopped looking for work. Not a real recovery, phony numbers"

In the article AND in the summation above:
"Chirftutmoses is an idiot, low jobless rate was not due to people giving up and leaving the workforce. Instead, since Trump's election, almost 1 million new workers have re-entered the labor market"

I may have paraphrased.

"We can rev up this economy like it should be, not with false numbers like 3.9 percent unemployment. But with real numbers."

"Unemployment is a totally phony number."

"Our real unemployment is anywhere from 18 to 20 percent. Don't believe the 3.9. Don't believe it."

At least we know who CTM aims to emulate.
It all makes so much sense now.
Thanks for your input, Trumper.

"Then you hear there's a 3.9 percent unemployment. It's really -- if you add it up, it's probably 40 percent if you think about it."

"I hear 3.9 percent unemployment, that is the biggest joke there is in this country. That number is so false."

"Nobody has jobs. ... It is not a real economy. It is a phony set of numbers. They cooked the books."
