I have watched the media report economic news under 8 years of Bush, and now under 8 years of Obama. Believe me when I tell you there is a stark difference. The media allowed President Obama to blame our economic malaise entirely on George W. Bush, even during Obama’s second term. They would never afford President Trump the same luxury, not that Trump would ever resort to blaming his predecessor ad nauseum (adult vs. man-child).
Here is a handful of predictions, things to look forward to from the media as soon as Trump is inaugurated:
* The media are going to suddenly discover there are 94.6 million Americans unemployed, and what’s Trump going to do about it?
* The media are going to suddenly discover that we have huge budget deficits and an exploding national debt nearing $20T, and what’s Trump going to do about it?
* We have homeless people in America, and what’s Trump going to do about it?
* GDP growth under Trump will easily trump that under Obama, but the mainstream press will still try to talk down a growing economy and dig for and exploit any shred of adverse economic news.
