Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Steven Greenhouse: It has long been confounding that President Donald Trump's strongest supporters are Whites with only a high school education. This is bewildering because the Trump administration has repeatedly and systematically hurt America's blue-collar workers and favored corporations over them.

Donald Trump has never had a friend, just various organic possessions.

It's amazing that, more than three years into tweety's reign, American workers haven't figgured out that he detests them, and would not grieve to see them dead.

They listen to his promises because he is "just like them" rather than look at the results.

And if they are forced to look at the results, they blame Democrats somehow.

Trump is nobody's friend. Did Hitler have friends? Did Stalin?. Totalitarians never have friends,only victims and accomplices.

When Democrats controlled government and union workers supported them, people made a decent living. Enough income to afford 2 kids, a house, annual vacation with the family, new car, maybe a boat ...

If anything, this pandemic has made the disparity that exists between the 1% and everyone else glaringly clear, especially now that the extra $600 a week unemployment is gone. The coming weeks are going to bring a lot of hurt to working families.

It isn't a secret that Democrats wrote a bill to take care of individuals, small businesses, and local and state governments hurting through no fault of their own. All due to gross incompetence and apathy from out president and his administration.

By now it should be getting obvious to most that it's going to take a new administration to right our ship of state.

Comparing the last 21 months of the Obama administration with the first 21 months of Trump's, shows that under Trump's watch, more than 10 times the number of manufacturing jobs were added.

Bunker Bitch has 20 weeks in a row with over 1 million jobless claims. That's some kind of putrid.

That's because the average American can't find
their @ss, even if they had a compass and a map!
This nation, on the whole, is split between the
education, and mindless, spoon fed, zombies...

Funny because Trump didn't pass an economic policy until the end of his first year.

Could it be a coincidence?

Yep. FactCheck on your ass again.

"Manufacturing has been one of the bright spots in the economy over the last couple years," Chad Moutray, chief economist for the National Association of Manufacturers, told us in a phone interview.

Trump doesn't get all the credit though, Moutray said. The president's success has been due, in part, to a "coincidence of timing" in which the global economy and the energy sector improved about the time he took office.

Otherwise, all he did was take out a huge government loan, called it a tax cut, and gave it to businesses. We are PAYING these businesses to hire people. That's not real job growth.

I should add nearly ALL the manufacturing jobs were added in 2017 and 2018 when the international market again added demand. Then we added hardly any in 2019 and started seeing manufacturing losses in late 2019 and early 2020 even before Coronavirus.

If Trump policies were so effective, what happened?

Now we lost over half the manufacturing jobs added under Trump because of poor handling of Coronavirus.

For comparison sake, Obama was running a roughly $500 billion deficit in the final years while creating about 2.8 million jobs per year. That's $178,571 per job.

Trump was running a trillion dollar deficit for about 2.1 million jobs per year. That's $476,190 per job.

HOW THE ---- DO YOU DO THAT BADLY CREATING JOBS WITH THAT MUCH MONEY?!
