Notice this pattern?

Obama squanders his few remaining days in office releasing convicts from prison, freeing Gitmo terrorists, strapping down the economy with crazy rules and slandering our ally Israel. Trump isn’t even President and he has boosted economic confidence, kept jobs from leaving, and is boosting the stock market to record highs.

Yet the media tells the story a different way.

When Obama claims credit for the economy, the Fakestream Media grants it.

“The Obama economy has now created 15 million jobs” (CNN ’16)

But when it’s Trump, what does he get?

“Trump Seeks Credit for 5,000 Sprint Jobs” (bloomberg)
“Trump takes credit for Sprint plan” (CNBC)
“Trump Takes Credit for Sprint Plan to Add 5,000 Jobs” (NYT)

If i didn’t know better, I’d say they were all writing their stories from the same set of Talking Points. (Sarcasm)

Somehow anything Obama says is taken as Gospel… sorry, I meant to say Sura. Of course, proper context from the FSM would include that America lost manufacturing jobs under B. Hussein and replaced them with low wage starter jobs in service economies.

It would point out that after 8 long years of Obama, American families are actually making LOWER household incomes.
Trump is treated as though he’s just some schlub who happened to stumble into the gig and is now trying to cover himself in glory for things that would have happened anyway.

Just try saying, out loud and with a straight face, that Carrier, Sprint and SoftBank would have happened anyway if Hillary had been the choice.

Go ahead, I double dog dare you!
