Fox News Actually Corrects Donald Trump's Embarrassingly Blatant Economy Lie

President Trump took to Twitter Sunday morning to attack Democrats

Earlier in the day, Trump made the claim on Twitter.

Fox Business Network's Charlie Gasparino torched President Donald Trump over his Monday tweet in which he incorrectly claimed that the GDP had eclipsed the unemployment rate for the first time in 100 years.

If this statistic seems dubious, that is because it is categorically false; there have actually been 63 fiscal quarters across the past 60 years in which the unemployment rate was lower than the rate of growth for the gross domestic product, or GDP. "You'd have to talk to the president about where the number came from, but the correct number is 10 years".

Another prominent Trump ally who contradicted the president's claim was the chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, Kevin Hassett.

And indeed, most of Hassett's comments were flattering as he praised Trump's record on the economy. After sharing this fact, Lemon played a clip of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders dismissing Bob Woodward's new book, Fear: Trump In The White House, as "careless and reckless".

World class narcissist and former President, Barack Obama, gave a speech on Friday at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, where he brazenly laid the current state of political division within the country at the feet of President Donald Trump and the GOP.

While that was good news about the economy, Lemon was struck by the president's inability to tell the truth. "That's 700 000 African-Americans that are working now that weren't working when this president took place".

This wasn't the first time Hassett has weighed in on a presidential tweet.

Before taking office, Trump regularly accused federal officials of falsifying economic data.
