Sarah Sanders: ‘Can’t make it up, Obama now wants credit for the booming Trump economy’


If former President Barack Obama wants to take credit for economic gains realized under his successor, President Donald Trump, he’ll first have to get by the president’s spokesperson, Sarah Sanders.

The White House press secretary took to Twitter this week in response to the former president trying to claim responsibility for job growth under her boss.

“We saw the longest streak of job creation in American history by far — a streak that still continues, by the way,” Obama said recently at a mayors conference in Chicago.

But Sanders wasn’t about to let him get away with discounting Trump’s de-regulation and tax reform efforts.

“Can’t make it up: Obama now wants credit for the booming Trump economy. At least we can all agree the economy is better under President Trump,” she tweeted.

But then, Sanders has proven to be an effective gatekeeper, as seen Monday when she mixed it up with CNN reporter Jim Acosta, who hijacked another press conference to attack President Trump for calling out fake news.

Proving she can troll with the best of them, Sanders wasn’t finished with Obama just yet.

“I’m old enough to remember when President Trump’s election was going to ‘crash the market.’ One year later: market up over 30%, two million new jobs & 1,000 new manufacturing jobs created every day just last month…and now Obama wants credit for the booming Trump economy,” Sanders tweeted.

While wannabe economists got lost in the minutia of comparing job numbers, there was plenty of support for Sanders.

Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
