WH Adviser Belittles Media Coverage Of Staggering Unemployment As 'Pity Party'

White House trade adviser Peter Navarro on Monday disparaged the media’s coverage of the staggering 14.7 percent unemployment rate in April caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.


“That was a pity party yesterday on the Sunday shows,” Navarro complained on “Fox and Friends,” singling out CBS News “Face the Nation” host Margaret Brennan, ABC News “This Week” host George Stephanopoulos and “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace.

“This is not the Great Depression,” the White House official continued. “Anybody who thinks this is the Great Depression doesn’t understand either history or economics.”

Navarro claimed that President Donald Trump had built “the strongest and most beautiful economy” before the virus took hold.

Okay shit for brains, tell the country how 3.5% in January being unemployed to over 15% in April is not a depression in less than 3 months.....and having over 80,000 deaths and over 1.5 million infected by a deadly virus on those that want to live.....................and besides you have BLOOD ON YOUR HANDS also..............that is your legacy...........you libertarian POS........maybe you can use the "cubic model" by that DPS economist in the white house........................

2. #Trumps pal, Peter Navarro should be forced to set in a #townhall with the unemployed and

listen to their 'pity' stories.

3. Keep talking, Mr. Navarro

Campaign operatives for Joe Biden are going to have the easiest job in the world cutting opposition ads.

Even in appearance.

5. The unemployment rate is currently 50% higher than it was at the peak

of the Great Recession, and we all remember how much fun it was digging out of that hole! But yeah, it's a pity party. Thanks for putting things in perspective, rich asshole millionaire.

The worst administration in history is also the most time-deaf.

8. What's up with the obsession of this "administration" with the word

"beautiful".

Trump uses it for the mythical tests for covid-19 (aka the Trump Virus): "We have millions of beautiful tests."

Now this buffoon is talking about the "beautiful economy." (Remember that this idiot also claimed to be an expert in infectious diseases if I recall and actually told Trump that covid-19 would be a huge problem. However, his obsession in saying this was to gouge China.)

Bizarre choice of a word.

11. This is not the Great Depression," maybe not

but how much closer do we have to get before Trump and his useless gaggle of incompetents recognize that the hand writing is already on the wall. When is close to a Great Depression level event going to be bad enough to get these greedy morons to do something to help the rest of us?
