Even Fox News Shoots Down Donald Trump's Economy Boast

President Donald Trump boasted Monday in a tweet that it's the first time in more than a century that America's gross domestic product growth is higher than the unemployment rate.

World class narcissist and former President, Barack Obama, gave a speech on Friday at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, where he brazenly laid the current state of political division within the country at the feet of President Donald Trump and the GOP. Economic data show this circumstance last occurred in early 2006, or about 12 years ago.

"If you look at the collective body of evidence, the notion that what we're seeing right now is just a continuation of trends is not super defensible", Hassett said.

Fox News was not the only media outlet to push back.

Fox News research contradicted Trump in a tweet about two hours after his claim, noting that there have been 63 quarters with a GDP growth rate higher than the average quarterly unemployment rate (several during the Clinton administration).

The only catch.the claim was made by his boss, President Trump. What is true is that it's the highest in 10 years.

"We numbers geeks here at the White House are grateful when the press finds mistakes that we make - we don't like making mistakes but we're grateful when they're pointed out because we want to correct them".

"It was 100% my fault and I apologized immediately", Hassett said, hand over his heart.
