Morning Joe demolishes Donald Trump’s lies about the U.S. economy being the best ever by bringing receipts: Bill Clinton and Barack Obama had better numbers.

During an interview for Meet the Press, Trump told Chuck Todd:  “My economy is phenomenal. We have now the best economy, maybe in the history of our country.”

Well, Morning Joe panelist Steve Rattner came with receipts. “You only have to go back to the Clinton years to find stronger growth than under Trump,” he said.

Rattner also brought receipts about wages under Barack Obama. “Contrary to Trump’s claim that the economy was “dead” under Obama, real earnings growth was actually stronger than it’s been under Trump,” he said.

Of course, Chuck Todd just sat there and allowed Donald Trump to slide right under that lie. News networks like CNN and Fox News are running with Trump’s talking points, in a pitiful attempt to normalize lies.
