Lindsey Graham Gets Utterly Destroyed For Posting Lie-Filled Tweet About Job Numbers Under Obama And Trump

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham (SC), who has bizarrely become one of Donald Trump’s most ardent defenders, is being dragged all over social media after posting a lie-filled tweet about job numbers under Barack Obama and Donald Trump.

“If @BarackObama’s jobs numbers were anywhere close to what we’re talking about with President @realDonaldTrump……the media would stop the Earth from rotating to make sure everybody heard about it!” Graham tweeted.

Of course, that is a lie. During the last 21 months of Obama’s presidency, the U.S. economy created 4,477,000 new jobs; in his first 20 months as president, Trump has presided over an economy that grew by 4,054,000.

As noted by the New York Times’ Peter Baker, “job creation is no better now than it was under Obama. What is striking is that the recovery continues so long after it started.”

As expected, the internet was quick to set Graham straight.

Take a look at Graham’s tweet and some of the responses below.
