Yesterday, Former President Barack Obama wrote a puff piece on Twitter attempting to take credit for the current strong U.S. economy. The Tweet received 693K Likes and 102K Retweets.
Obama wrote “Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.”
However, it was not long before a scathing retort came in the form of a tweet from actor and conservative commentator James Woods who Tweeted: “The notion that you did anything but destroy this nation’s economy is beyond hilarious. “Those jobs are never coming back. What’s he going to do, wave a magic wand?” Yes, @realDonaldTrump did exactly that. Your only sad legacy was your blatant lies about ObamaCare.” Woods, who has been absent from Twitter for several months following a number of temporary bans for upsetting Twitter's delicate sensibilities, returned to Twitter a few days ago, much to the delight of his many followers. One of which is Senator Ted Cruz, who simply tweeted: “Damn straight.”
