The Trump Economy: Messaging vs. Reality

If you ask Trumpers, the economy was total shit until 1/21/17 at which point it turned around over night. In reality, Trump just picked up Obama's surging economy and (to his credit) hasn't ****ed it up yet.

Do you have any idea how either are actually computed? The comparison is utterly stupid.


Here's one answer to your stupid question. If a player has 125 hits in 1000 ABs (.125 avg), one extra hit moves him to .1258.
If a player has 1 hit in 4 ABs (.250 avg), one extra hit moves him to .400.
So, I guess you were wrong.
Stop embarassing yourself. They are two entirely different things and they way to compute one doesn't correspond to the other.
Seriously, the assumption was obvious, but I will be crystal clear. The batting averages are hypothetically for the same person with the same at bats, let's use a nice round number like 200 ABs... now do your math.

Talk to anyone in the financial industry and ask them, is it easier to make money if you can buy in at the bottom of the market (.125), or if you are starting after, a historically slow, but 8 year recovery after one of the deepest bottoms in history(.250)... Here's another one to help your pea brain...

A team goes 1-15 in the NFL, the next year they win 7 more games and finish 8-8... Is it going to be easier or harder to win 7 more games the following year...

These things are called an analogy - a correspondence or partial similarity.

I know, I'm was just saying if I lost I really would have left for a year, where most of the lefties on here already have mults and would have just used a mult. So I guess I don't mine the sig.

I love how they show a graph of Jobs numbers going up like that correlated to the economy.... uhhhh how many manufacturing jobs have been added?

How many good paying jobs?

You can not factually deny Trumps administration and its policies have made our economy much strong than Obama’s.

It can not be done.

It's common for people who have trouble understanding a concept to blame the concept instead of themselves. I say this to help you, because self awareness is sometimes difficult. (Of course, I know you understand what he's saying and you're just playing dumb for effect).
