  3. Wasn't it a month into Trump's presidency when he said the economy was great?

It's still something so baffling to me, and what's worse is how his supporters eat it up without a second thought.
I don't know what fact surprised me most: That the man had shot my cat, that I cared for that cat, or that I had a cat.

White supremacists will never admit it was the black man's economy.
Sorry if my posts make you feel emotional. It is not my intent.

And now it's showing signs of weakening

S&P down 5.5% year to date
Dow down 5%
NASDAQ down 3.5%

Remember how the cult was bragging about the stock market here between Trump's election and inauguration? As if somehow just invoking Trump's name changed everything

This is how Fox News does things. They claim "economy was awful in Obama's first month, and great in Trump's first!" which is actually true. That's the most effective thing, it's actually true.

Thing is they are not drawing attention to an important piece of information that most third-graders would realize (so naturally Fox News viewers wouldn't)-

Nothing gets done in one month. Obama's first month sucked because he inherited a s***pile (from a republican, BTW). Trump's first month rocked because he inherited a gold pile (from a democrat, BTW).

That completely reverses the message the intentionally-misleading report was trying to send.

They'd still blame Hillary and Soros. Racist fascism is a hell of a drug.

They'd blame the brownouts on too many illegals making burritos with the kettle and TV on.
(That's why they want the browns out. Pun?)

I agree with the baffling part. Saying that a month in wouldn't that basically be giving Obama credit?

To sane people, yes. But they know Trump followers aren't sane and will only see "TRUMP. GOOD."

He said it the day after he won. His claim was that just the act of winning returned business certainty and consumer confidence.

Maybe because liberals claimed the economy would crash immediately after Trump was elected?? Why do liberals also forget that Obama was dealing with monopoly money. Feds have increased interest rates 7 times in the 2 years of Trump being in office, that's the sign of a super hot economy
