House Speaker Nancy Pelosi loathes President Donald Trump so much that she’s angry when he accomplishes something that benefits the American people.
Imagine going to work every single day and constantly spinning things against Trump when he is having so much success.
In the latest example of this, Pelosi reacted to the recent jobs report — and her response is nothing short of downright pathetic.
Despite the jobs report getting praise from just about everyone — which showed a record high in employment and the lowest unemployment in 50 years — Pelosi said it “offers little solace” to Americans.
Pelosi released a pathetic statement packed with doom and gloom in response to a jobs report showing America’s economy is the strongest it has been in decades.
“Despite some encouraging numbers, the November jobs report offers little solace to the farmers and hard-working families who are struggling to stay above water with the costs of living rising and uncertainty surging,” she said.
Quickly changing the subject, Pelosi then began touting a Democrat-sponsored bill to control the prices of prescription drugs.
“We must take action to strengthen the health and financial security of America’s seniors and families,” she said. “Next week, the House will pass our transformational Lower Drug Costs Now Act to finally stop Americans from having to pay more for their medicines than what Big Pharma charges for the same drugs in other countries. When we lower out-of-control prescription drug prices, we deliver huge savings for patients, employers and taxpayers — which we will reinvest in the search for cures and historic new vision, dental and hearing benefits for Medicare beneficiaries.”
No matter how hard she tries to lie and downplay it, the jobs report was a smashing hit.
The latest numbers from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics found that 266,000 jobs were created in the month of November, far outpacing the 187,000 expected by economists.
That expands the number of consecutive months for record-high employment to six.
Then, another record was set with unemployment.
The Bureau reported that it fell to 3.5 percent, which is the lowest jobless rate since 1969 — 50 years ago.
Wages rose faster than expected and the stock market has been surging to near record highs.
“This is the best number I’ve ever seen in my life. Fifty years ago, that number was a curse. Now it’s a blessing,” CNBC’s Ian Cramer exulted, adding, “I don’t see inflation. I don’t see recession.”
Trump also tweeted about the numbers, saying, “GREAT JOBS REPORT!” But Pelosi, as the voice of the Democrats who are trying to impeach Trump, still had to get up there and try to put a negative spin on things.
Yahoo Finance’s Myles Udland said the president deserves credit for getting the U.S. economy to levels that many never imagined could happen.
Since taking office nearly three years ago, Trump has honored his commitment to put more Americans back to work and make sure there’s no doubt the U.S. has the strongest economy in the world.
And he accomplished that with zero help from Democrats, who have spent three years trying to impeach him and thwart his agenda since he took office.
