On Friday morning, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) announced that 20.5 million American workers lost their jobs, bringing the adjusted unemployment rate to 14.7 percent, the highest level since the Great Depression, according to CNN:

“The unemployment rate soared to 14.7% in April, its highest level since the BLS started recording the monthly rate in 1948. The last time American joblessness was that severe was the Great Depression: The unemployment rate peaked at 24.9% in 1933, according to historical annual estimates from the BLS.”

And yet, just minutes after that announcement, Ronna McDaniel, chairwoman of the Republican National Committee (RNC), was on Twitter, proudly proclaiming that President Donald Trump had built a “booming economy.”

Really? People are lining up at food banks for hours on end just so they can feed their families but “we need Donald Trump”? What sort of perverse logic is that?

Others on social media also took note of McDaniel’s ludicrous posting and laid a nasty fact-check on her and her boss:

There’s an expression that applies in this situation, and Ronna McDaniel needs to heed it: There are none so blind as those who will not see.
