Fox Host Breaks Into Trump’s Lies With Fact Checks

“I do want to clarify a couple of things he said, that no president in history has cut regulations as much as he has. That is true. But the president just mischaracterized the regulations that were added under Barack Obama — they were largely financial related.”

“You might recall we had this little thing called the financial meltdown and much of those regulations were geared to preventing banks from ever investing in things like risky mortgage securities, pooling them, selling them off.

“The unemployment rate did, under Barack Obama, go down from a high of 10% to around 4.7%. President Trump, of course, sent that even lower, eventually getting us down to a 3.5% unemployment rate.

“But I didn’t want to leave you with the impression that during those eight years when Obama first came into office and we were bleeding about a million jobs a month, that that was standard fare and that characterized the whole eight years.

“It was not a disaster under Barack Obama. Not only did the Dow essentially triple during his tenure, but whether you want to call the increase regulations and other things that police financial companies, as a bane to our existence, those companies did very well.

“Americans did very, very well. So I just want to put that in some context here.” – Fox News host Neil Cavuto, who will surely be a tweetstorm target for breaking into Trump’s lie-fest with some truth-telling.

There is more at the link above.   Also I am going to add another link to another post on that site where tRump lies and is fact checked.  It is nice to see some attempt to stop the gaslighting and outright lies to grandize himself that tRump pulls on the people.  However notice the hate and belligerence of the ones trying to defend tRump and attack Cavuto.   No one can be allowed to disagree or say anything not complementary to the Dear Leader.    Hugs

Trump Employs Red And Blue Trucks To Symbolize The “Weight” He’s Lifted Off Regulations, Lies Many Times

    Scottie, there are Republicans who believe Obama caused the housing recession. He did not, as it occurred on Bush’s watch. There are even more who don’t know we had six consecutive years of 2 million plus job growth the last six years of the Obama presidency. There are many who do not know Trump inherited an economy that was in its 91st consecutive month of economic growth.

    The truth does not fit on a bumper sticker. How about this one – there were more jobs created in Obama’s last year than in Trump’s first year. But, I am sure I would be told this is fake news.

      Hello Keith. One of the things killing our democracy is State Propaganda TV and other State Propaganda media. Also the systematic defunding and destroying of education in the US that leaves people unable to reason for themselves, something fanatical religions also employ. Through our blogs and our interactions with right wing propaganda believers we must try to impress upon them the truth. However they have been now taught the tRump model of attack, never listen, claim everything you don’t want to hear is fake, and try to intimidate the person you are talking to at every opportunity. If you can not win with reason then go to insulting or threatening the other person is another right wing tactic. I think these tactics are a desperate attempt to stop the return to reason that must come when tRump is dethroned, but I am not sure they will stop. I think of young Dylan who used to comment here and how distorted his world view was. I would take time to inform him of the reality of the situation. He stopped posting my comments on his blog and no longer comes here. I have checked out his blog a few times and they have gotten more hard right wing, so whatever media he is listening too is part of what is poisoning a new generation of young people with fear and hate. Hugs
