When even CNN is calling BS on your DNC talking points you know you’re in trouble … and that’s exactly what happened when Jake Tapper interviewed DNC Chair Tom Perez this morning on ‘State of the Union’.
“If you get a dollar more in your paycheck and the cost of gasoline, the cost of healthcare, the cost of housing goes up by $3, you’re not better off,” DNC chair Tom Perez says in reaction to President Trump’s positive job numbers #CNNSOTU pic.twitter.com/bWMntz6jNV

Wow, when you’ve lost Jake …
Perez might as well have said, ‘The square root of potato is six.’ No matter how hard the Democrats try and spin the economy into something bad (looking at you Rep. Eric Swalwell), the fact of the matter is Americans are doing far better now than they ever did under Obama. Heck, even Tapper all but pointed this out to Perez as well.
If the economy is so bad, why is Obama running around claiming credit for it?

Of course it's more like I've gotten $100 or more because my business got a tax cut and I'm also keeping $100 due to lower taxes 🤔 so you're 100% wrong

MAFF IS HARD, TOM.
“Americans getting raises is bad.”

Democrats don’t want people to succeed on their own, this is nothing new.
And of course, the Left just couldn’t deal with Jake being honest.
It's stunningly amazing that there are people who cannot see the Republicans handed out temporary table scraps to the middle class in their tax cuts and gave huge permanent tax cuts to the top 10%. Why anyone in the middle class runs to the Republican Party for help is beyond me.

They are trying so hard.
@jaketapper decimated Tom Perez in that interview, showing he really isn’t DNC Chair material.

@jaketapper who put nasty pills in your wheaties today? You were way over the top mean to Tom Perez.

@jaketapper Hey Jake, how about a little consistency? I am no fan of Tom Perez and pressing him is absolutely fair- but how about the same treatment for guests on the Right? You let them spew “falsehoods” as a matter of course. News flash they’re “lies”. Come on, you can say it

Because you know, CNN is so easy on the Right.
Not to mention it wasn’t only the economy Jake pushed Tom on:
.@jaketapper asks Tom Perez about Keith Ellison abuse allegations. He says Dems “didn’t hesitate to take action,” but investigation quickly cleared Ellison. Perez later: “[Ellison’s accuser] deserves to have a fair and full investigation.” Perez saying investigation not thorough?
