President Obama needed a distraction from his terrible jobs record and he found the perfect diversion.

He took the opportunity Friday, while holding a press conference about job growth, to direct his minions in the media to investigate Donald Trump‘s record.

“He has a long record that needs to be examined,” he said at a press conference on Friday about job growth. “I think it’s important for us to take seriously the statements he’s made in the past.”

“I just want to emphasize the degree of which we are in serious times, and this is a really serious job. This is not entertainment. This is not a reality show. This is a contest for the presidency of the United States,” he added.

And he told the media to scrutinize everything.

“Every candidate, every nominee, needs to subject to exacting standards and genuine scrutiny,” Obama told the reporters in attendance.

“What I’m concerned about is the degree to which reporting and information starts emphasizing the spectacle of the circus because that’s not something we can afford,” he said. “And the American people, they’ve got good judgment, they have good instincts, as long as they as have good information.”

Perhaps Obama was using Trump to take the focus off the weak economic report he was trying to spin into something positive.

With 7.9 million still unemployed and job creation slowed to a crawl Obama reached back to tout that jobs have been created every month for the ast 74 months.

But the Department of Labor’s report showed the weakest hiring in six months, UPI reported.

It also showed 300,000 left the workforce altogether, meaning they either quit jobs or stopped looking for work.

Which makes shifting the focus to Trump in the president’s best interests.
