MSNBC is one of the headquarters for the anti-Trump #Resistance.
They attack Donald Trump on a daily basis with the intensity of a personal vendetta.
But one Barack Obama staffer said something on MSNBC that put a smile on Trump’s face.
Joe Scarborough of MSNBC openly admitted that he wants to take down Trump after a war of words he and co-host/wife Mika Brzezinski had with Trump.
This is particularly amusing because Scarborough and Brzezinski had been very friendly with Trump during the 2016 primary.
They had him on their show numerous times, and Scarborough even joked about being Trump’s running mate.
But once Trump became the biggest threat to Hillary Clinton, suddenly the MSNBC co-hosts turned on Trump.
Scarborough even left the Republican Party shortly into Trump’s term.
But Scarborough and former Obama administration economist Steve Rattner recently had to admit some good economic news for Trump.
Rattner said, “Consumers are spending, and that’s good news for Trump. We had a very big jobs number last month, the fourth-quarter GDP number looks like it’s going to come in ahead of expectations, so good news on that front.”
Some Democrats have been openly hoping for a recession to damage Trump’s economic record, but that hasn’t happened.
Consumers haven’t been scared into the talk of a recession.
Rattner also said, “Kitchen-table issues may work in his favor, something for the Democrats to worry about…And I do think Trump is actually a little crazy like a fox on this. I think for all the nonsense we’ve been seeing in the rallies and things like that, I think he is quite focused on the economy.”
As Rattner points out, Trump has been focusing on the economy while Democrats have been sprinting over to the radical left.
They’ve called for limits on free speech, gun confiscation, the elimination of private health insurance, allowing men who claim to be transgender into women’s prisons, and a number of other far-left ideas.
Elizabeth Warren even proposed a wealth tax that already failed miserably in European countries and wrecked their economies.
Meanwhile, Trump has cut taxes and rolled back regulations that have opened up the energy sector and brought unemployment to historically low levels.
His strategy on trade worked out a new deal with Mexico and Canada – and eased trade tensions with China, who is a major international threat.
Scarborough begrudgingly agreed with Rattner’s take, saying, “Well, those close to President Trump have told me, yes, on these trade deals, he is crazy like a fox…It looks like some really great news for Americans going into the new year.”
It surely pains Scarborough and the Democrats to admit that Trump is doing a good job on the economy.
With Trump’s economic record and no new wars, the Democrats have decided to focus on creating a sense of chaos with endless media hit-pieces.
Even that strategy isn’t working – Trump’s approval ratings are up across the board.
It turns out the Democrats made a huge miscalculation with their impeachment hoax.
