Oh MSNBS

Spinning like mad men

The jobs report showed that 223,000 jobs were added in May — more than economist predicted — and that unemployment dropped to 3.8 percent.

The MSNBC panel admitted that the numbers were great, but then quickly pivoted to criticize Trump for tweeting that he was “looking forward to seeing the employment numbers” before the report was released.

“The president, he certainly wanted us to pay attention,” anchor Stephanie Ruhle said. “At 7:30 this morning he sent out this tweet…I completely understand why the economy is a win for the president but to send this tweet out one hour before it becomes public?”

“The security around these numbers is incredible,” guest Brendan Greeley affirmed. “If I were to before 8:30 text my wife and say the job numbers look good…I would never work in financial journalism again.”

Ruhle and Greeley went on to fret over whether Trump’s “deeply suspect” and “unprecedented” behavior may have affected trading on the market.

Greeley admitted again that the economy has been good under Trump but knocked the president for “cherry-picking” data to make himself look good.

There they go again
