On Friday, Barack Obama admitted the economy is “doing great,” but took all the credit for it. Politico’s economics correspondent Ben White backed up the former president’s claim:
The economy is quite good. It was quite good when Trump took office. By some measures it's slightly better. By others it's pretty much the same. Measured by deficit/debt outlook it's worse. These are the facts.

Obama will be pleased with that seconding of his taking all the credit for the economy when he was launching midterm campaigning on behalf of Democrats.
The good thing about a Republican being in office is it's now ok to mention deficit/debt outlook. https://t.co/t9qXKFlfGm

Another example to add to a bias file that’s already busting at the seams.
There isn't a single fact in that tweet.

Obama’s still got it (and by “it” we mean the ability to get journalists to have his back).
