Kellyanne: ‘Bit by bit, President Trump is undoing the Obama legacy’ and people are thanking him profusely

According to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, the reason the economy’s performing so well right now has everything to do with former President Barack Hussein Obama.

How so? It’s simple. Because of current President Donald Trump’s willingness to roll back every single one of Obama’s disastrous policies, the economy is being made great again, she explained Saturday on Fox News‘ “Justice with Judge Jeanine.”


“It’s called deregulating and undoing the Obama regulations. Bit by bit, President Trump is undoing the Obama legacy,” she said, adding that it’s nothing personal. “It’s because those were wrong policies that were taking us toward a socialist, pro-government America.”

“People know they are doing better and we are more peaceful and prosperous,” she continued. “I travel and talk to people. People come up to me from all over the country. Some aren’t so nice, I pray for them.”

“But most of people will come up to me and say I didn’t vote for President Trump, I don’t like this or that. But tell him thank you for turning Washington upside down. Those results, that progress, that matters most of on Tuesday.”

Like all socialist-friendly leftists, the former president believed in overregulation and overtaxation, two policy ideas that conservatives tried to warn him would devastate the economy. But he never listened.

And when Trump appeared on the scene in 2015 as a GOP presidential candidate and pledged to fix Obama’s ailing economy, the then-president outright dismissed him.

“When somebody says like the person you just mentioned who I’m not going to advertise for, that he’s going to bring all these jobs back,” he said during a pro-Clinton stump speech in 2016.

“Well how exactly are you going to do that? What are you going to do? There’s no answer to it. He just says, ‘I’m going to negotiate a better deal.’ Well how? How exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have?”


Now fast forward to 2018.

“[Trump] said to industries that were flat on their backs — manufacturing, construction mining — I’m here for you. We are going to open up the factories, bring those jobs back, renegotiate trade policies, deregulate and cut your taxes. All of that is why we have an economy boom,” Kellyanne argued Saturday.

Forbes has confirmed that manufacturing jobs skyrocketed after Trump took over the White House: “Comparing the last 21 months of the Obama administration with the first 21 months of Trump’s, shows that under Trump’s watch, more than 10 times the number of manufacturing jobs were added.”

Even in the face of such facts, Obama continues to attribute Trump’s economic gains to himself.

“Right now Republicans are all ‘Look the economy’s so good,'” he said at a campaign event last week in Florida for scandal-plagued Democrat gubernatorial nominee Andrew Gillum. “Where do you think that started? When did that start?”

Kellyanne wasn’t particularly impressed by this rhetoric.



“People don’t believe that,” she said Saturday. “There has been polling that’s been done to prove that.”

True. A Harris Poll published last week found that 47 percent of Americans attribute the current economy to Trump, while only a 21 percent minority attribute the gains to Obama.

“It also just seems like a very odd and somewhat pathetic argument from a former president who is on tape also saying that 2% or less in growth in GDP is the quote new normal. Under President Trump it’s been over 4% for several quarters,” she added.

It’s not Kellyanne who finds Obama’s rhetoric to be silly.
