This morning Chuck Todd on Meet The Press made the point America needs to hear regarding all those misfits and mental-midgets that throw about their bile and uneducated rhetoric for political gain. The topic was the jobs numbers and those who are trying to claim the numbers were played with for political purposes.
MR. TODD: Stop here. This has been– this is really making me crazy. The Federal Reserve gets questioned out for politics these days, the Supreme Court and John Roberts. We have got– we have corroded– what we’re doing, we are corroding trust in our government in a way and one-time responsible people are doing to– to– to control it. And the idea that Donald Trump and Jack Welch, rich people with crazy conspiracies can get traction on this is a– is a– is a– is a bad trend.
MR. GIBBS: I assume, David– I assume, David, there’s a number of people that believe the real unemployment report is somewhere in a safe in Nairobi with the President’s Kenyan birth certificate. I mean this stuff is absolutely crazy. The notion– and the notion, quite frankly, that somebody as well respected as Jack Welch would go on television and singlehandedly embarrass himself for the entire day of Friday by saying somehow that these statistics are made up, I agree with Chuck, it’s incredibly dangerous and we wonder why institutions in this country are– the perception of institutions in this country are failing because people go on TV and just make stuff up. Asked for evidence, he said he had none.
Let me be more blunt and to the point.
Note to the three-thumb crowd–YOU ARE DAMAGING THE COUNTRY—SO CUT THE CRAP AND SHUT THE HELL UP!
