As Twitchy told you, Jay Carney made an absolute ass of himself when he claimed that members of Barack Obama’s administration “NEVER boasted about the stock market”:
Good time to recall that in the previous administration, we NEVER boasted about the stock market — even though the Dow more than doubled on Obama's watch — because we knew two things: 1) the stock market is not the economy; and 2) if you claim the rise, you own the fall.

Anyone who wasn’t asleep for eight years knew that was a total lie, but not “conservative” blogger Jennifer Rubin. She swallowed it hook, line, and sinker — and loved every minute of it:
That would be because you weren't idiots

Oh, hey, speaking of idiots … what kind of “conservative” political expert so blindly swallows a narrative that’s so easily proven false?
Uhm,,, A Little quick on the trigger there Ms. Rubin https://t.co/T5vJv0etOy

Jennifer, you’re not a conservative, so stop it. Also: https://t.co/5WJViA1pWa

Actually, they were, and Jay just lied about this. Also.. how in the world do you consider yourself conservative still? At least go with moderate, or be truthful and say liberal. People would respect you more.

I never cease to be astounded by the lack of self awareness by the DC Swamp.

So, is Jennifer Rubin just an idiot herself? Or is there another explanation?
— ConservativeBlackMan (@Thomasismyuncle) February 5, 2018
Who says both explanations can’t be true?
Anyone up for a flashback?
Jennifer Rubin 2014-2015: Obama "a fool,""level of a college Freshman," "delusional."
Jennifer Rubin in 2018: That's right Jay Carney, you guys never did something dumb like brag about the stock markets because unlike this administration, you guys weren't idiots. pic.twitter.com/BDZCFXMoLq
