Rep. Jim Clyburn publicly admitted over the weekend that April’s jobs report is “disappointing” despite President Biden touting the figures as proof America is “on the right track.”
“If you look at that jobs report, yes, it was disappointing. But it was more disappointing among women. They’re basically the care givers, they’re populated in the world of work that is slowly coming back. They’re teachers and all of that!” said Clyburn.
President Joe Biden’s economic agenda was thrust into question Friday when an important jobs report widely missed the mark; showing just 266,000 new positions in America when experts predicted nearly one million.
“The unemployment rate unexpectedly rose to 6.1% — while it’s still well below the April 2020 peak of 14.7%, it’s about twice the pre-crisis level, the Labor Department said in its monthly payroll report, released Friday morning. Economists surveyed by Refinitiv expected the report to show that unemployment fell to 5.8% and the economy added 978,000 jobs,” reports Fox News.

Joe Biden’s economy:
The April jobs report was the worst miss in 23 years: "The worst miss, we're told, since '98."

“The figure marks a significant drop from March’s downwardly revised number of 770,000 and February’s upwardly revised 536,000,” adds Fox. “There are still 8.2 million fewer jobs than there were last February, before the crisis began.”

ALEXANDRIA’S ARMY: Ocasio-Cortez Teaching Liberal Colleagues How to Use Social Media

“Class was in session this morning! I was thrilled to offer some insights on Twitter and social media to my. colleagues this morning. Now Majority @WhipClyburn is teaching me what all the bells mean in the Capitol,” tweeted Cortez.

FARRAKHAN BLUES: Top DEMS UNDER FIRE Over History with Prominent ANTI-SEMITE
Ranking Democrats in the House of Representatives and liberal activists found themselves in hot-water this week; flat-out refusing to condemn Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan after his three-hour long rant against the “Satanic Jew.”
Members of the Republican Jewish Coalition called on seven members of the Congressional Black Caucus to resign Tuesday after the legislator’s connections to the prominent anti-Semite became more evident.
“There’s clearly a double standard,” said the group’s leader. “No, there’s a double double-standard. Not only do you get the progressive left wing and more centrist Democrats who aren’t shy about criticizing President Trump or branding the Republican Party as white nationalists or neo-Nazis, but when it comes to condemning Louis Farrakhan, they’re silent.”
The announcement comes as Rep. James Clyburn -the third highest ranking Democrat in the House- was under fire for “sharing a stage” with the Nation of Islam leader back in 2011.
Left-wing legislators aren’t alone. The Women’s March organization found itself in the spotlight after one of its co-chairs attended Farrakhan’s event, sitting silently as he screamed “the Jews are my enemy.”
“I proudly serve as a leader for one of the largest women’s advocacy organizations in the world. For that reason, my recent presence at the Nation of Islam’s Saviour’s Day convocation troubled some of the very people who I have fought for and worked alongside for most of my life,” wrote the co-chair after refusing to condemn Farrakhan’s remarks.
