Sarah Huckabee Sanders Just Smacked Down Obama After Taking Credit For Trump’s Economy

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders mocked former President Obama after he tried taking credit for the current booming economy, saying his comments were “laughable.”

Yes, the man who blamed George W. Bush for economic woes during his eight years in office is now trying to take credit for an uptick in the economy after being out of office for nearly a year.

 

 

 

 

 

Obama touts his economic record: ‘Thanks, Obama’ https://t.co/ENJSGc6vTT BO is insane: Doubled the national debt; gave US a credit hit; saw more foreclosures than ever in history; gave Iran 1.7 BILLION in cash & apologized his skinny hind-end off for US. NOPE!! No thanks!!!!!

“As we took these actions, we saw the US economy grow consistently,” Obama claimed. “We saw the longest streak of job creation in American history by far. A streak that still continues, by the way.”

“Thanks, Obama,” he added.

Essentially, nothing bad that happened during his administration was his fault, while everything good that happens when he’s not in office is due to him. This man has an insanely loose grip on reality.

Sanders, fortunately, was right there to smack him back to reality, taking to social media to mock Obama’s delusional claims.

Can’t make it up: Obama now wants credit for the booming Trump economy. At least we can all agree the economy is better under President Trump.

I’m old enough to remember when President Trump’s election was going to “crash the market.” One year later: market up over 30%, two million new jobs & 1,000 new manufacturing jobs created every day just last month…and now Obama wants credit for the booming Trump economy.

Sanders reminded certain groups of people that Obama had claimed to be a champion of, that they’re already doing so much better in the Trump economy than they did in the previous eight years.

“Donald Trump’s relentless focus on tax cuts, deregulation and draining the swamp is great for job growth… with minorities, women, men and even those with low incomes, showing the best gains” https://t.co/DpvWtKlCY6

Since the election “the jobless rate for African Americans dropped from 8% to 7.3%, while for Hispanics it fell from 5.7% to 4.7%…and with Trump’s big tax cuts on the way, job growth isn’t likely to end soon -more good news for all Americans.” -Investor’s Business Daily

Yikes, that’s sure to leave a mark.

Sanders wasn’t content in blasting Obama on Twitter. She appeared on Fox News to say “I think it’s laughable that President Obama thinks he has anything to do with the success of where the economy is right now.”

She then explained that job creation and economic growth are taking off under Trump because of Trump and nobody else.

“There’s a reason that it continues to go up, and it started when President Trump was elected and when he got into office,” Sanders said. “It had nothing to do with President Obama, and I think everybody knows it, including President Obama. And I think it’s pretty laughable that he’s trying to take credit for it.”

To be fair, ‘laughable’ is probably the most descriptive word for Obama’s entire tenure in office.

Meanwhile, it took a determined President Trump to reverse job-killing regulations and unleash the economy, something unseen the previous eight years.

Thanks, Trump!
