Fox News Actually Corrects Donald Trump's Embarrassingly Blatant Economy Lie

White House economist Kevin Hassett fact-checked a seemingly extraordinary claim about the country's GDP growth rate overtaking the unemployment rate for the first time in more than 100 years.

The national unemployment rate was at 3.9 percent in August, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. "You'd have to talk to the president about where the number came from, but the correct number is 10 years". "What is true is that it's the highest in 10 years".

"President Trump is lying, even about good news", Lemon said.

Actually, about Fox News, Obama White House Communications Director Anita Dunn told The New York Times in 2009, "We're going to treat them the way we would treat an opponent".

GDP growth exceeded the jobless rate as recently as the first quarter of 2006, when unemployment was about 4.7% and quarterly GDP growth was 5.4%, government data show.

"The history of thought about how errors happen is not something I can engage in, because from the initial fact to what the president said, I don't know the whole chain of command", Hassett said.

Woodward book goes on sale as ex-Trump aides push back
Nevertheless, Woodward continues to float the idea they are "saving the country". One telltale sign of the book's soon-to-be success is its author's reputation.

Administration officials rarely contradict the president in public and nearly never from behind the podium, well aware that Trump prizes loyalty above all else in his employees.

Trump uses Obama's own words slamming him to point out the "economic boom".

And indeed, most of Hassett's comments were flattering as he praised Trump's record on the economy.

President Donald Trump posted to Instagram a new video trolling former President Barack Obama on the booming economy under the Trump administration.

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