Last night, Fox News hosts, Jesse Watters and Sean Hannity were stunned when Hannity’s guest, Democrat strategist, Jessica Tarlov attempted to convince them that Barack Obama’s economy was stronger than the current booming economy under President Trump, during a segment on the top-rated “Hannity” show.
Hannity had Jesse Watters of Fox News make the case for Trump, while Fox contributor Jessica Tarlov made the case for Obama, The Daily Caller reported.
Hannity opened the show by making it clear the judge in this debate might have already made up his mind.
“Obama, 13 million more Americans on food stamps, 8 million more in poverty, lowest labor participation rates since the ’70s, worst recovery since the ’40s, lowest home ownership rate in 51 years, accumulated more debt than every other president before him combined,” Hannity said.
“Trump, 4 million new jobs created, the best labor participation rate that we’ve ever had. Record low unemployment … This is the single greatest economy that we have had in TEN YEARS. Tell me, what’s wrong with that, why would he want to go back to your friend Obama’s record and agenda?” he challenged Tarlov. –Western Journal
Tarlov made a ridiculous attempt to prove that Barack Obama was a better President when it came to the economy. Tarlov, who was clearly on the defense, responded: “President Obama added over 11 million jobs. He got the unemployment rate down from 7.8 percent to 4.8 percent. There are 15 million Americans who are insured now because of President Obama. It is true. Don’t shake your head, I didn’t shake my head at you.”
Jesse Watters, who couldn’t keep himself from laughing, mocked Tarlov, telling her: “I’m not calling you stupid, but ‘it’s the economy, stupid.”
Hannity responded to Watters: “You have gotten so mature. That’s so mature of you.”
Watters smirked and told Hannity “I’ve gotta cover my bases.”
The best part came near the end of the interview when Watters absolutely destroyed Tarlov and the Democrat Party she represents, reminding her that her party is running on “socialism, open borders, and impeachment. The outspoken Fox News host, Jesse Watters wasn’t finished with his rant, as he reminded Tarlov that Maxine Waters is now the face of the Democrat Party. Watters asked Tarlov, “What, is she gonna chase everybody out of a restaurant? And Nancy Pelosi is the most unpopular politician in America. And then, you have Trump, a stable genius at 48%.”
