This is complete BS!
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough gave his two cents about the controversy surrounding former President Barack Obama for trying to take credit for President Trump’s booming economy.
According to Breitbart, Scarborough knocked the media for “parroting what Donald Trump says” regarding the economy. He then went full fake news and credited Obama for the current state of the economy claiming it “began 11 years ago.”
“The media runs around all the time, and they have been doing it for years talking about, parroting what Donald Trump says about how great the economy has been. Well, yes, this is a recovery that began 11 years ago,” Scarborough said. “And if you want to just look at growth, economic growth, you know, because Donald Trump is promising four, five, six percent in terms of economic growth and GDP, you look at the last 10 presidents and their GDP growth throughout their administrations, six in 10 of those presidents, according to Axios yesterday and well, just according to government statistics, actually had stronger economies than Donald Trump. … [W]hich means that once again, Donald Trump is in the bottom half of his class. It’s something that he’s all too familiar with.” You can watch a clip of Scarborough’s outlandish comments here.
