After taking a break from the economy to report on developments in the 2020 Presidential race, the Hardball panel quickly returned to the upcoming jobs report. Ruth Marcus of The Washington Post weighed in on the upcoming GDP report: “President Trump is going to take a lot of credit for these good numbers, don’t believe him.” Marcus attributed the good economy to “a lot of people who bought things because they are worried about his tariffs and a lot of false growth from tax cuts juicing the economy.” Marcus may have committed a Freudian slip when she admitted that the tax cuts were “juicing the economy.” Marcus then predicted “it’s going to slow down, don’t buy it,” apparently hoping that the self-fulfilling prophecy will doom her least favorite President.

Maybe if the media didn’t provide wall-to-wall negative coverage of the Trump administration, especially by obsessing over Russia and Stormy Daniels, he might have a slightly higher approval rating. Matthews also wondered “what is he going to be…when we have our recession in two years?”
