Obama gave himself a nice pat on the back for the booming *Trump* economy.
And the dummies, er, Dems in the audience clapped when he claimed his policies are now somehow causing unemployment to drop, three consecutive quarters of 3% GDP growth and the soaring Dow.
This is to be filed under Obama’s Greatest Whoppers, right under “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan.”

Former President Barack Obama is taking credit for the robust economic growth that is taking place under President Trump.
At a conference of mayors in Chicago, Mr. Obama congratulated himself Tuesday for strong employment numbers in the U.S. this year, saying his climate-change policies have contributed to growth.
“As we took these actions, we saw the U.S. economy grow consistently,” Mr. Obama said. “We saw the longest streak of job creation in American history by far, a streak that still continues by the way.”
He added wryly, “Thanks, Obama.”
JUST NOW: "Thanks, Obama," said Obama. pic.twitter.com/tmBkpdGIVN
