Trump Can't Even be Truthful About Good News

In a tweet that’s been criticized, Trump said “the GDP Rate (4.2%) is higher than the Unemployment Rate (3.9%) for the first time in over 100 years!”

In fact, it’s been only since the George W. Bush administration — in 2006 — that the rate of change in GDP has been higher than the unemployment rate. And GDP frequently outstripped the unemployment rate in the Clinton administration.

Actually, it's happened 63 times since 1948.

We live in a time in which decent and otherwise sensible people are surrendering too easily to the hectoring of morons or extremists.

He gets away with it because very few people would take the time to fact-check him.  All he had to say was the GDP rate is higher than the unemployment rate, period.  But, no.  He has to add that it's 'the first time in over 100 years' to make it sound like he's a big deal. What an insecure human being he is.
