The White House is reeling after yet another sub-par jobs report dropped this week. After missing expectations by a whopping 700,000 in April, they managed to only come in at around 100,000 under in May; though, the big drop in the actual projection by the “experts” helped that equation (the projection was lowered from 1,000,000 the previous month to around 650,000 for May).

But White House Chief of Staff Ronald Klain wants you to know that Joe Biden is doing so much better than the bad orange man.

Further, employment is not the chief factor in judging how well an economy is or isn’t doing. Barack Obama had good employment numbers the last year or so of his presidency, but those came with meager growth and wage stagnation. Only after Trump booted a lot of the regulatory empire did things really take off for the
