Internet mocks Fox News after it’s forced to admit job growth was stronger under Obama than Trump

Published

on

The official monthly jobs report for December 2017 was a disappointment, as the Labor Department estimated that the economy added just 148,000 jobs over the last month.

And despite the fact that President Donald Trump has bragged about his first year in office being an unqualified economic success, it turns out that average monthly job growth in 2017 was 171,000 jobs per month — which was down significantly from the 187,000 jobs per month that were added in 2016.

What’s more, the monthly average of 171,000 jobs created in 2017 was actually the lowest average monthly job growth since 2010, when just 88,000 jobs were added per month.

Fox News’ research team posted the numbers for average monthly job growth on its Twitter account — and there was deathly silence in response from the usual crowd of Trump supporters.

Instead, the tweet generated lots of pointing and laughing from liberals who mocked Fox for acknowledging that job growth under the last six years of the Obama administration was stronger than during Trump’s first year.

After at least three complaints alleging lax reopening practices at West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice’s luxury resort hotel, a kitchen employee has tested positive for the coronavirus at a residential and sports club affiliated with The Greenbrier.

Local Health Department officials directed a 14-day quarantine for potentially exposed employees at The Lodge, a restaurant at the Greenbrier Sporting Club, and the venue will remain closed until July 10. Festivities planned at the club for July 4 will go on, but with food from other facilities.
