|This one stings.|
Conservatives complained about Obama taking vacations on taxpayer expense.
Now a new leader is in charge. It's a Republican. And now this Republican takes a vacation. This 17-day or longer vacation is on taxpayer's expense and you won't hear a peep from conservatives. You hear whataboutism from concern trolls.
When Barack Obama touted out good job numbers the conservatives and Donald J. Trump would denounce the jobs report. They would say the numbers are fake and the real unemployment rate would be extremely high.
Now that Trump is in charge of this, the conservatives would say that he is keeping his promises of bring jobs back.
They won't say that 95.3 million Americans are not working. They won't talk about the brick and mortar stores like Kmart shutting down. They refuse to acknowledge that the underemployed are working twice as hard for a measly amount of pay.
They will denounce progressives whenever they say, "What has Trump signed into law that benefits American looking for work?"
Newsweek released a harsh cover of the inept leader. They have him inside a Lazy Boy chair looking annoyed with work.
The unemployment rate has ticked down to 4.3 percent. The numbers for July are out. There were 209,000 jobs for the month. Pretty solid.
Jobs in the food service, professional, and healthcare services rose.
The labor force participation rate continues to be slow. Only 62.9% of Americans are not working. Black unemployment is 7.4 percent meaning 35 million Blacks aren't working.
What Happened To Trump's Promise To Make Blacks Work Again?
I remind you that there are reasons to why Americans aren't working.
FIRED FROM A JOB
LAID OFF FROM A JOB
QUIT A JOB
STAY A HOME PARENT
GIVING UP ON WORK
SCHOOL AGE (UNDER 16)
ACTIVE PART TIME WORK ONLY
With a looming retail crisis, Trump and his supporters continue to ignore the signs of collapsing economy. Republicans spent most of Obama's eight years demonizing his policies, his proposals and results.
Progressives vow they'll make Trump's term a stressful one. You can talk a mean game from the sidelines, but when you're in charge of 326 million Americans, you're decisions mean "life or death."
Being the President of the United States is stressful. You have to be ready on day one. Trump is still trying to catch up.
