Dear CNN: Jobless Claims Below 300K Longest On Record – Is That ‘News?’

You can add this to that list of good news stories CNN will ignore in their pursuit of tabloid journalism.

While they dig up the kind of stories you’d read in a supermarket check-out lines, Trump has been boosting the economy.

Slashing regulations. Cutting taxes. That sort of thing.

And now, we have set a new record.

The number of Americans claiming new unemployment benefits has never been so low for so long.

 Initial jobless claims, a proxy for layoffs across the U.S., decreased by 9,000 to a seasonally adjusted 233,000 in the week ended April 7, the Labor Department said Thursday. This means claims have now held below 300,000 for 162 consecutive weeks, cementing the longest streak for weekly records dating back to 1967.

The current streak eclipsed the previous longest stretch that ended in April 1970.

Whatever Dems might say about Trump ‘inheriting’ Obama’s economy, remember this:

Obama called the crapfest we had in that slowest recovery ‘the new normal’. Funny how Trump had different expectations. And his expectations and policy have already had a big impact on the jobs market.

But don’t look to CNN to cover this story.

They’ve probably got a juicy rumor to dominate their airtime.

The kind of ‘reporting’ that makes you remember that line by Rick Moranis:

Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.

Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
Gift giving just got a whole lot easier.
What’s not to like?
They get a gift, and you get to crow about just how good Trump’s first year has been.
It’s win-win, right?
Heck yeah.
