On Monday, we got the feeling that this week’s jobs report was going to be bad because White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said that 9 million people had called in sick because of the Omicron variant at the time data was taken — meaning they were out sick, not unemployed.

On Wednesday, CNBC published a report saying that 301,000 jobs were “unexpectedly” cut in January as the Omicron variant slammed the labor market. That’s a bit short of the Biden administration’s predictions.

The guy above is right — it’s always “unexpectedly” low when a Democrat is president.
