    I didn't have to---if you read the whole article, it states the company has added 800 jobs over the last 3 years. That part is at the very end, and is buried under the unknown number of jobs that are attributed to the yet to become president. So Trump gets credit for jobs that don't yet exist, before he even becomes President and oversees any legislation but we ignore the jobs that have been created while Obama is in office being the President. Am I the only one that sees how absurd that is??

    Will Obama get credit for these jobs? His record states that he has created an obscene amount of jobs as POTUS.

    Who'd have thunk that after 8 years the only problem with Obama is that he used twitter wrong. Imagine his approval ratings if he just went to twitter and made something up for retweets and likes? His approval rating would be a new all time high.

    You might be correct.......

    President Obama is a much more likable PERSON than Trump.

    The problem is his policies, handling of terrorist, apologizing for American greatness, gutting of our military, and handling of Iran made him an un-likable President.

    Maybe maybe not. Watching Trump on twitter and then watching folks eat it up Obama basically could just say anything like Trump does and folks would love it. Obama on Black Twitter would have been amazing.

    I think I'm getting the hang of this.

    Are we going to have a thread over everything place that opens in closes over the next year?
    The Trump effect won't even hit until about 6 months from now.
    It's not Buffalo Wild Wings, it's called Wings and Rings.

    Metaphorically, yes. There isn't an app or anything like that. Black twitter is a comedic and unfiltered effort from black people on twitter. For example, when Mariah Carey choked on New Year's Eve Black Twitter destroyed and made fun of Mariah Carey all night long and it was incredibly not safe for work and as unpolitcally correct as you can get. When Soulja Boy and Chris Brown fought on Instagram all week Black Twitter made fun of both of them and then once Soulja Boy appeared to be the weak link Black Twitter then destroyed and annihilated Soulja Boy. There is no rhyme or reason to Black Twitter and it isn't for the easily offended. It's pretty much Eddie Murphy, Kevin Hart, Dave Chappelle, Martin Lawrence, Richard Pryor, Bernie Mac, Chris Rock, Paul Mooney, Mike Epps and Chris Tucker on steroid times 1,000,000. And it is awesome. And I love it.

    Ask @Clyde and @gchs_uk9 about Black Twitter. They've seen it.

    I agree, just like to have another option. Plus BDubs has a much better selection of beer (not that Mr. B's is bad) and better TV's.

    And for the record last I saw Obama added a little over 11 million jobs during his 8 years in office. I don't blame Trump for trying to get a head start. He hates losing.

    Easy to do when you dont add in the jobs lost when he took office.
