Democrats Downplay New May Jobs Report: ‘Not A Triumph,’ And ‘Not Joyous’



The Democratic National Committee doesn’t seem to be too happy about the good news from the latest job report that actually has a drop in jobless numbers for the first time since this whole coronavirus mess started.

Along with downplaying the facts in that case, they also are refusing to acknowledge that Republican led states that reopened the economy were responsible for this uptick.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

“What we have in this report is a flicker of good news,” DNC Tom Perez said during a Friday press call. “We’ve gone from a Category 5 hurricane to a Category 4.9 hurricane.”

Perez compared the job losses over the last three months, 19.6 million, to the worst three-month stretch of job losses under the Obama administration, 2.3 million, in the middle of the Great Recession.

President Trump, Perez said, is “continuing to compete with Herbert Hoover to have the worst record of job loss in at least the last hundred years in the United States,” and blamed the “preventable” losses on Trump failing to act to contain the coronavirus pandemic earlier.

The report from the Labor Department stated that the economy has gained almost 2.5 million jobs in the month of May and the unemployment rate fell down to 13.3 percent. The lockdowns are responsible for the destruction of 1.4 million jobs in April.

Austan Goolsbee, an economics professor from the University of Chicago, really seemed dismayed by the fact that Trump’s economy might actually have a bit of a rebound.

“They’re not a triumph. They’re not joyous.”

Every party has a pooper they say.

“One month or two months of rebound — if they do not get us back to the levels that we were before this crisis began,” the former chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers said. “We cannot say that we are succeeding until we have at least gotten ourselves back to where we were before the crisis.”

It was states that were governed by members of the GOP that first started reopening and allowing folks to get back to work. Those that have been overseen by Democrats have been crawling toward an opening. The city of New York, which was the epicenter here in the United States for the virus, is set to begin the first phase of reopening on June 8.

Of course, Goolsbee told the Washington Examiner that the shutdown orders played a very small order in the rise of the unemployment rate, saying it was fear and people pulling themselves out of the economy that was the source of the trouble.

Save conservative media!

Omar: We Have to ‘Dismantle the Whole System,’ Not Just Fix Criminal Justice System

Tear it all down!

John Salvatore



Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar (MN) is making waves again. Unfortunately, there’s a very decent chance the mainstream media won’t cover her latest nonsensical speech. Check this out, via TDW: Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) stated on Tuesday that Democrats “must begin the work of dismantling the whole system of oppression wherever we find it,” which she suggested meant “our economy and political systems.” Omar made the remarks during a press conference held by the Minnesota People of Color and Indigenous caucus in St. Paul, Minnesota, which centered around racism. WATCH: The only reaction necessary: President Trump held his first rally in a few months in Tulsa, Oklahoma. As expected, the joint was jam-packed with proud Americans. POTUS did his thing, slamming the left while propping up the USA. He even went after radically far-left brother-lover Ilhan Omar. Trump told the crowd, “Ilhan Omar is going to be very much involved in a Biden government. They will put this hate-filled, America-bashing socialist front and center in deciding the fate of your family and deciding the fate of your country. I don’t think so. She would like to make the government of our country just like the country from where she came. Somalia.” WATCH: More from the rally… VIDEO:
