As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

WH: Trump Carrier Deal Nothing Next to Obama’s Accomplishments

How petty. And false.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest moved quickly to diminish Donald Trump’s success at keeping Carrier Corp. from moving 1,000 jobs to Mexico, saying it doesn’t compare with President Obama’s record of job creation.

“If he is successful in doing that 804 more times, then he will see the record of manufacturing jobs that were created in the United States while President Obama was in office,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said. “President Obama has set a high standard.”

Not just petty, but completely dishonest. Because Earnest is leaving out the manufacturing jobs that were lost before Obama started creating them.

According to Politifact:

If you start from the beginning of Obama’s term — which started in a severe economic downturn — the number of manufacturing jobs is actually down by about 303,000.

It’s like a football team claiming victory because it outscored its opponent in the second half. If only we could just tune into the Obama presidency during the good moments . . .

Manufacturing workers have suffered grievously under Obama. There are many reasons for that, some having nothing to do with Obama. But for the White House to claim success on this front demonstrates just how uncaring and out of touch Obama is toward manufacturing workers, and why Rust Belt states rejected this president’s policies.

    • Josh is a puppet with strings that the enemy within pulls. We know Obama is the enemy within, especially when Homeland opened our borders and stopped the surveillance. We still have the military at the borders but we know now that Obama and Hitler are alike. When Hitler left, he destroyed everything in his wake and that is what Obama is doing. He thinks we don’t know what he i doing now, stealing money to give to the terrorists, immigrants and refugees. Obama has never cared for America, he hates America and everything he says and does is to hurt America, its been that way from the beginning of his so=called presidency, or shall we say his non-presidency. He should get some help for his mental problems now that Trump beat his sorry self. No third term, hit the road Obamas, pay your own way now, you took enough from America. The enemies within.

  1. Not watching the clip. Earnest, he is not.

    But, this reminds me of when Congress announces a budget cut when the budget this year is +2% and it was +5% last year….

    What are we, idiots????

      • After sucking the life out of this country, Odracula will be run back into his crypt…
        Oh, he will come up for air sometimes and stir the pot but he (and minions) must now sit back, suffer & pout as they watch how a competent President will build our exceptional country to be great again.
        BTW earnest, how many jobs did Odracula save BEFORE he
        was sworn in? ……crickets…..

  2. They’re all sore losers. Like I’ve said previously, this is the kind of stuff that factored into the Dem’s collective demise…they just don’t get it. As far as I’m concerned, they can keep hanging themselves.

    Go ahead, keep Pelosi. Keith Ellison? Great choice!

  3. This administration is nothing but a bunch of self centered, narcissistic idiots. Let’s count the “saved” jobs again so we pat ourselves on the back. Here Trump isn’t even in office and jobs are staying. I’ve said for years that if you put tariff on products being brought into this country, manufacturing will return. Both sides are guilty of not doing this. The company I work for contributes to both sides so the tariff idea never gains traction. Maybe it will now.

    • It really is that simple, when you don’t sell your administration to foreign interests before even taking office.

      The feds have a major responsibility, to protect our borders, whether it be from military breach, illegal immigration, or economic losses. The current administration (and all recent administrations) have failed in this responsibility in an epic way.

  4. But he saved the auto industry. Hell, I could have saved Enron if I’d had the pockets of the Amer. taxpayer to dig in to. If Trump owned Carrier this analogy works. Beyond me how grown men are this trite.

  5. Trump convinced Carrier and Ford to change their business plan even before he was sworn in as POTUS. Can you imagine what he’ll accomplish, with the help of what looks like what will be a first-class Cabinet, after January 20? Hang on, it’s going to be a great ride.

  6. Josh Earnest is just another portrait of moral decline in the Obama Administration.

    Comes in young and eager with a decent reputation, and exits a servile prevaricator of little interest or talent.

  7. Trump is already the President. My first question when I heard this news was “why didn’t Obama do the work required to get this done?” What an embarrassment to the lame duck punks and leftists as they are planning their escape from D.C. Lazy hacks! Can’t wait for January 20th!! God Bless President Trump and his family.

  8. Nobody asked……..Did anyone in the Obama Administration call Carrier to discuss leaving the U.S?

    If not,why not? If so, why was President Elect Trump successful and President Obama fail?

  9. Meow! Bowl of milky in the corner for Mr. Obama.

    What a petty reaction. Why couldn’t the WH have been happy for the workers and left it at that?

    Because The One and The Wife are small people.

  10. OH DO U ALL KNOW OBOOBOO STOPPED THE DRONE FLIGHTS OVER THE MEXICAN BORDER LAST WEEK.
    NO DOUBT A XMASS GIFT TO SOME CRIMINALS.
    LET THEM OUT OF JAIL AND LET THEM IN OVER THE RIO GRAND..
