I am not sure about this one. Can anyone believe that Fox News is giving useful and truthful data to their viewers and followers? Well, it seemed to have happened today.
President Obama will just shake his head after seeing this one and ask, 'Why didn't Fox News show these numbers more prominently when I was in office?'
RawStory published the following.
The official monthly jobs report for December 2017 was a disappointment, as the Labor Department estimated that the economy added just 148,000 jobs over the last month.
And despite the fact that President Donald Trump has bragged about his first year in office being an unqualified economic success, it turns out that average monthly job growth in 2017 was 171,000 jobs per month — which was down significantly from the 187,000 jobs per month that were added in 2016.
What’s more, the monthly average of 171,000 jobs created in 2017 was actually the lowest average monthly job growth since 2010, when just 88,000 jobs were added per month.
Fox News research tweeted the following.

President Obama was not perfect but he ran the country under dire conditions. Unfettered crony capitalism destroyed the economy. He allowed its reinflation without penalizing the titans of finance who caused the pilfering of millions as they profited. He provided health care for millions who never had it, and he passed several laws to protect women and others. He did that all in his first two years when he had a Democratic Congress.
Sadly, his last six years could have been much better. But his first two years were so productive that his marginal economic success over the next six years coasted on the back of the first two.
The inconvenient reality of the job numbers was so true that according to RawStory, Fox News went into radio silence on the matter. And what followed? The Fox News mocking by Liberals on Twitter.
So, what you're saying is we've had the worst job creation since 2011? Rad.

Trump's numbers are so tiny compared to Obama's big numbers.
