Trump And His Great "Black Unemployment" Lie

So, Donald Trunmp entertiansed his Twitter minion with an attack on Jay-Z's comments about the Trump economy, or lack there of.  
During normal times, and distant US history (Eg. pre-2017), it would be unthinkable and totally unacceptable for a US President to spend so much time silly(ing) on Twitter.  Especially when his (all past presidents have been male) his target is a US rapper and following a report on Fox & Friends. A total farce and comical were it not a US President
Let's spend a few minutes on Black unemployment. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) is the resource for national (and state) employment data. How does BLS archive black unemployment? As you view and contemplate what follows, recognize Trump's propagandist know full well Trump's actual impact on black unemployment. Also ask yourself: "Exactly what measures or legislation has Trump, and his Congress, enacted which actually impact US employment?"   If that doesn't work for you, ask yourself: "What policies has Trump put in place which focuses on black unemployment."

If for some strange reason you are abhorrent regarding charts the raw data paints an even more stark picture. Note the precipitous drop in black-unemployment since 2014. The only rational reason for the drop was an increasingly strong economy. An economy in which "immigrants" really did not take available jobs from black Americans. So much for that piece of conservative cake.

The Raw Story also published a piece regarding Trump's carnival performance and his efforts to sell fake news to the nation.
A recent NPR fact check found Trump’s claim to be true, but noted: “And a big problem with that claim is that those rates had been falling for long before Trump took office, and their declines don’t appear to have picked up speed. This implies that there’s nothing specific that Trump did to change this rate.”
Let's end this piece with a basic question: "Are you surprised Trump would take a stage, a platform and a microphone with such a bold lie."  Despite our understanding of Trump as a pathological liar, we will admit to a level of surprise his henchmen and henchwomen would actually facilitate a lie as bold as his black unemployment lie. 

However, we ask that you consider another perspective form noted economist Jared Bernstein.

Trump King? A Court Of Lies And Sycophancy

If you sit in silence, you might as well side with the oppressor. Unknown author.

If you recall the RNC/GOP's recent attempt to send a dual message across the nation be reminded of this:

TownHall dot com: (with my emphasis in red and centered on two very deliberate words.) 
The short message was released on Sunday by RNC Chairman Reince Priebus (emphasis added):
“Merry Christmas to all! Over two millennia ago, a new hope was born into the world, a Savior who would offer the promise of salvation to all mankind. Just as the three wise men did on that night, this Christmas heralds a time to celebrate the good news of a new King. We hope Americans celebrating Christmas today will enjoy a day of festivities and a renewed closeness with family and friends.
“Even as we celebrate, we must also remember those among us who are less fortunate. Many on this day are without hope, and need the kindness and compassion of those around them. It is our prayer we will rise to meet the material, emotional, and spiritual needs of individuals all around us, and what better day is there to love our fellow man than today?
“As we open presents, enjoy Christmas dinner, and celebrate our own family traditions, we are mindful of our men and women in uniform. Many are stationed around the world today protecting our freedoms, and cannot be with their own spouses, children, parents, and siblings. We express the deepest gratitude for service that takes them away from celebrating with loved ones, and we ought to remember them in our thoughts and prayers not just on Christmas Day, but the whole year round.”
Dual message? Yes, a message to Trump sycophants and possible converts regarding his inner team's (and probably his) wish to facilitate viewing in a manner comparable to a Christ-like figure.  Also, imagine the opportunity for his writers to reap the sort of praise on the "king" they know he relishes. Such wordsmithing would surely draw praises equally to a Roman slave probably manicure the toes of Nero. Yes, dual message and a harbinger of life to come (for those who succumb to Trumpism).   

Before you rationalize into that weak mental argument of commonly uses Christmas references to "the new king,"  re-read the statement: "a king."

A want to be king self-proclaims?

There is yet another case which is proof positive protests on social media can impact disgusting and inappropriate behavior. 

Another Trump (long time) associate recently went utter racists regarding President Obama and Michelle Obama.  The New York State GOP official has a long history of overt racist remarks from oral to email remarks. In April of 2010, Paladino's racism caused a stir after the failed attempt at closet racism were discovered.,were posted here speaks to a long and storied history of utter racism.  Yet, this guy consistently claims how he is not a racist. Is it possible to actually shed one's racism via a simple declaration of "not being a racist." All the while racist acts exude from the guy as if he was a writer for Ron Pauls 1990's Newsletter.  

Paladino's latest:

It is important to note Trump's former long-term butler and current curator of his Palm Beach mansion also revealed deep racism via comments about one year ago. How is it possible a person can have so many servants, sycophants, hangers-on and close confidants who are clearly racists, without suffering the same social disease?

Have to close as such..with another example if a Trump lie.

"She is a world-class liar."  

Bosnia: True. The rest of the speech from which the video was extracted...not so true.

Linked, here. Sadly, even one around trump, especially his family know he is a serial liar.
