Sorry, Michelle O, Trump gets the last word: ‘The world was gloomy before I won . . .’

President-elect Donald Trump did not mention the first lady Michelle Obama by name, but she could have used the message of hope and Christmas cheer he shared on Monday.

Trump’s tweet comes after Mrs. Obama remarked during an interview with Oprah Winfrey a couple of weeks back that “we’re feeling what not having hope feels like” with the election of Trump as president.

But Trump got the last word by sharing a rosy picture of the U.S. economy since the November election.

“The world was gloomy before I won – there was no hope. Now the market is up nearly 10% and Christmas spending is over a trillion dollars!” he said.

Trump responds: ‘Obama said that he thinks he would have won against me, I say . . . ‘


Forbes reported that a Deloitte University Press forecast showed holiday sales this year are expected to exceed $1 trillion — a 3.6% to 4% increase over 2015.

As expected, haters are going to hate and there’s plenty of invective in the responses to Trump’s tweet, proving that all is not sunshine and lollipops for liberal America.

…a sentiment captured quite succinctly in this one response:
