This one was such a whopper...

This one was such a whopper, even Trumpery couldn't believe it!  party  But alas, the damage has been done as the White House retraction will never reach his troops.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders: “President Trumpery in his first year and a half has already tripled what President Obama did in eight years.”

Sarah Huckabee Sanders said on Twitter late Tuesday that she had been wrong earlier that day when she told reporters that Obama created only 195,000 jobs for African-Americans during his tenure compared with Trumpery’s 700,000 new jobs in just two years.

The U.S. economy actually added about 3 million jobs for black workers during Obama’s tenure, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Official statistics show black jobs went from 15.5 million when Obama took office in January 2008 to 18.4 million when he left in January 2017.

In fact, the most dramatic drop in black unemployment came during the Obama administration as the nation climbed out of a crippling recession. Unemployment of black workers fell from 16.8 percent in March 2010 to 7.8 percent in January 2017.

What cannot be denied (Trumpery and his wingnuts do on a regular basis), Obama inherited the worst economy since the Great Depression, and Trumpery inherited a booming economy, the best in ten years.

This is a fact.

The 2nd Quarter GDP growth that Trumpery claims was a "record", was not. The actual record (16.7%) is four times higher and occurred in 1950. One quarter of 4.1 percent real growth (after accounting for inflation) is neither a record nor close to one. There were four quarters of higher growth during just the Obama administration, including one quarter of 5.1 percent growth in 2014.

Trumpery, Aug. 7: I’d like to take this opportunity also to briefly highlight some of the administration’s key economic accomplishments. As you know, we’re doing record and close-to-record GDP. Nobody thought we’d be anywhere above, even close to 2. And we’re at 4.1, and I think we’re going much higher. FALSE
