Trump Uses George Floyd To Tout Unemployment Numbers Comments (0)

Trump literally just said — in reference to a surprisingly positive trend in unemployment numbers — that the hopes George Floyd is looking down and is happy:

Hopefully George is looking down right now and saying, “This is a great thing that's happening for our country.” It's a great day for him, it's a great day for everybody. It's a great day for everybody. This is a great, great day.

The numbers are suspicious on the face of it, but also, black Americans' unemployment actually inched upward, so there's that.

Also, Trump regularly accused Obama of juicing unemployment figures to make his Administration look better, so you better believe that's what Trump is up to. He's presided over the worst unemployment since the Great Depression, and still thinks murdered black men are dancing in heaven over the great job he's doing.

Anyway, I think a “Keep his name out of your mouth!” is due here.
