Why The Democrats Have No Show

It's the economy stupid.

Have a look at the unemployment figures here and then go figure.   By any measure, a substantial improvement over the Obama era of fundamental transformation into an economic basket case.

A reduction in total unemployed of 100 basis points since inauguration is nothing but Yuuuuuuuuuge!

NOTE: Persons marginally attached to the labor force are those who currently are neither working nor looking for work but indicate that they want and are available for a job and have looked for work sometime in the past 12 months. Discouraged workers, a subset of the marginally attached, have given a job-market related reason for not currently looking for work. Persons employed part time for economic reasons are those who want and are available for full-time work but have had to settle for a part-time schedule. Updated population controls are introduced annually with the release of January data.

These figures are bullshit, they are not true, they are fake news and all made up.

How do I know this? Because Donny Two Scoops told me so last year.

Wipe away the tears, dear boy, wipe away the tears. Go and throw a few more molotov cocktails at Trump rallies.
