    I doubt they'll lose any sleep over it.

    UN accidentally rips Obama

    "UN poverty report blasting Trump, US for ‘hatred for the poor’ uses data from last year of Obama’s presidency," the Fox News headline said.


    This happened on Obama's watch, UN.

    What a bunch of losers.

    The international anti-Americans are just as incompetent as their domestic counterparts, who used horrific pictures of children in custody -- taken from Obama's concentration camps for youths.

    "The U.N. report’s main contentions read like an attack on the Trump administration by the Democratic Party: America has 40 million poor people, including 18.5 million who live in extreme poverty; U.S. policies regarding the poor are 'cruel and inhuman;' the Trump tax cuts aren’t working and will worsen inequality; and the U.S. needs to spend less on defense of our nation and more on social programs," columnist Chuck DeVore wrote.

    "But, wait a minute: the U.N. report’s main contentions are based on the U.S. Census Bureau’s official poverty measure data for 2016 – the last full year of President Obama’s second term. So it would be absurd to say that private citizen Donald Trump had any responsibility for the many shortcomings of the Obama administration or any other administration in power before he became president."

    Of course, extreme poverty in America is considered middle class elsewhere in the world.

    Other news outlets, sadly, missed the story. They did not vet the UN press release, but simply regurgitated all the anti-American talking points. Reuters reported, "America's poor becoming more destitute under Trump: U.N. expert."

    That is wholly untrue. Jobs are up, unemployment is lower, and the number of people needing food stamps is down.

    Reuters buried the story in Paragraph 9, when Reuters admitted the story was based on data from Obama's presidency. A more accurate headline would have been, "America's poor were more destitute under Obama."

    Whata terrific news peg. President of hope and change made things worse for his voters while his deplorable successor improved conditions for them.

    Neither the UN nor the state-run media care that they dumped on Obama by mistake. Most people will never know the difference. Plus his shelf life is close enough to expiration that they'll be able to sleep at night even if he does get hurt by it. Which he won't.

    The American Dream is to be Donald Trump.
