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.”
Via Washington Examiner.
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

The photo I LOVE TO HATE.
When Trump promised to increase GDP 3-4%, it was Obama and his sycophantic minions who proclaimed it to be an unrealistic, pie-in-the-sky goal. They can try to take credit where it isn’t due, but we know better. #MAGA
A prime contributor to economic growth during Obama’s terms was fracking. Which in the name of climate change, Obama tried to shut down along with not approving Keystone. So because he wasn’t able to complete energy destruction before Trump took office, you could say Obama contributed to current growth. Not a positive to brag about though.
Funny how Obama was not genius enough to make it happen before he left office. (Yeah, we heard the same idiocy from the Jimma minions during the Reagan boom.)
Obama is certainly to be congratulated on debt growth.
