Former President Barack Obama thanked himself in a speech Tuesday in which he took credit for American economic growth occurring under Republican President Donald Trump.
Obama told an adoring crowd at a Chicago climate summit that despite “resistance at every step of the way,” his administration’s efforts to fight climate change resulted in a better economy.
“As we took these actions, we saw the U.S. economy grow consistently,” Obama said. “We saw the longest streak of job creation in American history by far — a streak that still continues, by the way.”
He then added a zinger: “Thanks Obama.”

As an anonymous internet person, I happen to be an expert in the stock market or as they say in France, Le Big Mac.
So allow me to explain.
The drop in the stock market is Hillary Clinton's fault because of gravity, which was discovered by Issac Newton on his Apple in 1492. Hillary is a Nazi, which means that they suck. Gravity is caused by suction.
Are you following me so far?
The stock market climbed, because it had a ladder. And some ropes. Because you always have to be safe when you climb. But not always. Sometimes they have that rubber stuff in playgrounds so when you fall, it protects you from skinning your knee or elbow.
Because that stings when you do that. It doesn't bleed a lot, but you get that scab that always breaks and oozes and it ruins your shirt. And it looks gross.
So, in closing, don't go to play grounds unless they have that rubber stuff. Or you'll have to buy new shirts and pants and you can't really do that because you lost all your money in the stock market crash due to Obama.

But as to the economy in general, the best step to deal with economic downturn is ending the FED, something that both Obama and Trump are to blame for propping up.
