Things have gotten surreal when Fox News pundits are allowed to openly correct Trump on his misrepresentations of reality:
"Trump has cut numerous financial and environmental regulations, slamming them and Obama’s economy as disasters. But Cavuto explained why those attacks are unfounded.
“It was not a disaster under Barack Obama,” Cavuto said. “Not only did the Dow essentially triple under his tenure, but whether you want to call the increased regulations and other things that police financial companies as the banr of existence, those companies did very well. Americans did very, very well.”
Cavuto also mentions the unemployment rate going from 10% to 4.7%, and that while the recovery might have been weak it was because we were coming off “a meltdown.”
Whether Cavuto is correct in his assessment is of less interest to me than the fact that FOX news is allowing its pundits to openly fact check Trump as his speeches are unfolding. Strange times.
