Trump's Biggest Whoppers


Recommended Posts

Trump says building up the military will create "millions and millions of jobs." Actually, defense spending creates less jobs than spending on healthcare, clean energy or education. Much less. http://watson.brown.edu/costsofwar/costs/economic/economy/employment 

Actually this is not new and has been a known fact for many, many years.  Defense spending mainly goes to major defense contractors for very expensive weapons systems, facilities, etc.  Very few new employees are actually needed in these areas.  A major non-defense contributor to increased and better paying employment is infrastructure spending by the Federal government.  Tump's much ballhooed (by him) HUGE infrastructure program is no where to be seen.  Even if he had one and it got to Congress, there is ZERO money now to pay for it.

Another James Hohmann (Washington Post) analysis on Trump's failure to have even minimally qualified nominees for judicial offices, not to mention all other offices.

Other than Trump's ignorance and stupidity in nominating these people, who is recommending them?  That is the scary part because you know Trump has no idea who all these people are he is nominating.

The other scary part is that most of his nominees will be with us for 4-8 years, except judiciary who will be with us forever.

You pull it's string and it says "It's going to be tremendous.  Believe me."

It probably also boasts about its accomplishments compared to those of the other presidents.
