Thanksgiving is a time for gratitude, but liberals have precious little of that to spare in the wake of their epic failure in the 2016 presidential election. So of course, we can expect many to take it out on their more conservative friends and relatives when they meet for Thanksgiving dinner.
At Power Line, John Hinderaker shreds the above graphic, a product of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee:
It isn’t worth the trouble to fact-check this whole mass of talking points, but I note that it requires some nerve to allege that “Under Trump, it’s estimated that the national debt would rise by $5.3 trillion over the next decade,” when we have just seen the debt rise by more than $9 trillion in less than eight years of the Obama administration. What they’re saying is that the increase in the debt would be slowed under Trump’s policies by more than 50%.
One of the things I am thankful for this year is that there won’t be anyone at our Thanksgiving dinner who comes armed with partisan talking points in hopes of winning arguments with his or her relatives.
