UNEMPLOYMENT: When Barack Obama took office on 1/20/2009, unemployment was 7.8%. After eight years of Obama, as of November 16, 2016, unemployment is 4.6%. This means unemployment is down about 41%.
At the height of the recession there were 15.35 million people unemployed. That number currently is 7.40 million unemployed. This means, of course, that nearly 8 million MORE people are working. In raw numbers there are 15 million more people working than at the peak of the recession.
What a nightmare!
STOCK MARKET: When Obama took office the stock market (Dow Jones) was at 7,949.09. On election day 2016 the market had risen to 19,614.81, an increase of 246%. A stock market INCREASE of 246%.
You and I see these numbers and are amazed at how great America is doing after eight years of Obama.
What do Trump voters think? They are pretty certain these have been the worst eight years in the history of the U.S. ‘Awareness’ may not be their strongest attribute.
Among those who voted for Donald Trump, 67% think unemployment went up during Obama’s term in office, and 39% believe the stock market dropped at the same time.
How astute are these people? Not very. Another 40% think Trump won the popular vote. As of now Donald is 2.8 million votes behind Hillary, and counting.
But hey, If you only watch FOX, you almost certainly believe unemployment skyrocketed, the stock market collapsed, and Trump won the popular vote.
FOX manages to keep their viewers angry all the time by giving them ‘FOX-facts.’ A ‘FOX-fact’ is a bit of information, sometimes accurate, often not, designed to aggravate you, and always-always aimed to make Democrats and Liberals look bad.
You know – fair and balanced.
When presented with actual facts Trump voters, like Trump himself, will simply deny them. “I have my own set of facts.”
And don’t even get me started on climate change. This clearly is a total hoax… I made a snowball last year!
