LMAO: AP Says, ‘Trump Claims Credit For What Is Still Mostly Obama’s Economy’

Written by K. Walker on January 18, 2018

The leftist in the Media (D) cannot stand that President The Donald is having a wildly successful first year in office. What are they going to do about it? Simple: Lie.

The Associated Press is saying that the booming economy under President Trump is not a result of his tax plan, and consistent deregulation, but rather Barry’s socialism-lite covered in red tape and high taxes.

And the Media (D) wonders why we have no faith in them.

Watch Doug call this B.S.:


The Associated Press, apparently a wing of the Democrat Party, said that the economy isn’t as great as you think it is, and if it is great, well, it’s Obama’s doing.

But in the year since Trump’s inauguration, most analysts tend to agree on this: The economy remains essentially the same sturdy one he inherited from Barack Obama.

Growth has picked up, but it’s not yet clear if it can sustain a faster expansion. Hiring and wage growth actually slowed slightly from Obama’s last year in office. Consumers and businesses are much more optimistic, but their spending has yet to move meaningfully higher.

“I don’t see any noticeable break over the past year,” said Michael Strain, an economist at the conservative American Enterprise Institute. “We tend to overstate the degree to which the president has the ability to control the economy.”

Now, we’re pretty hard on Dubya over here at Clash. But he did say a few sensible things when he was in office.

Like this:

‘When your economy is kind of ooching along, it’s important to let people have more of their own money.’

And this:

‘The way out of this recession, the way to create jobs, is to grow the economy by encouraging investment in factories and equipment, and by speeding up tax relief so people have more money to spend. For the sake of American workers, let’s pass a stimulus package.’

And of course, this:

‘I’ve watched politics for years. Republicans rarely get credit for the good things that happen in the economy during their watch. Democrats always get more credit than they deserve. They are just better at political discourse that we are.’

But hey, just because the Democrats drone on incessantly that the booming economy isn’t due to Republican policies, and Pelosi shrieks that the tax plan is ‘Armageddon’, and the Media (D) pushes that narrative, the actual experts cut through all the crap and agree that it’s President Trump that deserves credit.

Happily for President Trump, the pros agree with him. A recent survey of economists suggest it is President Trump, and not Obama, who should be taking a bow.

The Wall Street Journal asked 68 business, financial and academic economists who was responsible for the strengthening of the economy, and most “suggested Mr. Trump’s election deserves at least some credit” for the upturn.

How nice — ‘some credit’.

That’s totally President The Donald doing what he said he would do: ‘Make America Great Again’!

And he’s doing it through classic Republican policies.

The pros cite the White House’s push for lighter regulation and the recent tax bill as critical to a pro-growth environment; more than 90 percent of the group thought the tax bill would boost GDP expansion over the next two years.

A year ago in the same survey, economists awarded President Obama mixed grades. Most saw his policies as positive for financial stability, but neutral-to-negative for GDP growth and negative for long-term growth. By contrast, Trump was seen as neutral to positive for long-term gains.

Why would Trump rate higher than Obama with this group? Economists point to the upturn in business confidence that accompanied Trump’s election, and tie that to increasing business investment. Spending on capital goods accelerated sharply over the first three quarters of last year, growing at an annualized rate of 6.2 percent.

The poll that Doug cited showing that a whole whack of Americans believe that the boom is due to Obama’s policies seems sketchy…

In a recent Quinnipiac poll, a record 66 percent of those surveyed graded the economy as “excellent” or “good” but 49 percent of those surveyed credited Obama while only 40 percent named Trump.

That poll, though, seems biased. Only 23 percent of those questioned were Republicans, while 34 percent described themselves as Democrats, and 38 percent said they were Independents. It also asked the questions in a way that appeared likely to elicit an anti-Trump response.

It seems that the arctic blast that we’ve all been suffering through this winter due to Al Gore’s ‘Global Warming’ extended all the way to the Pits of Hell — even the New York Times praised President Trump’s booming economy.

Even the New York Times, no friend to President Trump, has described the “wave of optimism” sweeping over Americans business leaders, saying it is “beginning to translate into the sort of investment in new plants, equipment and factory upgrades that bolsters economic growth, spurs job creation — and may finally raise wages significantly.”

But hey, why let the TRUTH get in the way of a good narrative, right, AP?

What Jim Acosta, Rachel Maddow and the Rest of The Media (D) STILL haven’t figured out yet is why we call them ‘Fake News’.

Let’s spell it out for them. In a shirt.

Because you know they won’t be able to figure it out on their own.

JOUR-NAL-IST: A Professional Liar For Liberal Causes

There’s a ladies’ version

And a men’s version

The problem isn’t just the lies they tell…

It’s the truth they DON’T tell…

And the opinions laced right through them.

It’s propaganda:

And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!


Ladies, tell everyone that you don’t like the emasculated, metro-sexual ‘feminists’ — you’d rather have a President with balls:

And gents, let everyone know that you want your President to be just as much of a man as you are:

Donald J. Trump is our 45th President. Why? Because Americans from all races and classes are sick of whining Republicans and corrupt Democrats. Finally, we have a President who isn’t afraid to say what he thinks even if it is not popular with the press. Trump is not a typical politician. Trump can’t be bought. He will back up what he says with action, no matter the cost. Finally. A president with balls!
Get yours today and trigger the leftists and the RINO NeverTrumpers.
