Earlier today, Sanders ripped a key White House economic fable stating that the real U.S. unemployment rate is double what the Obama administration claims.
Aside from being a radical Marxist kook, Sanders has plenty of other skeletons in his closet.
“Once a month the government publishes a set of figures, and the last figures they published said that official unemployment was 5.4 percent,” the Democratic nominee continued, slightly misstating the Labor Department’s most recent report which put June’s unemployment rate at 5.3 percent.
“But there is another set of government statistics,” Sanders continued, “and that that real unemployment if you include those people who have given up looking for work and the millions of others who are working part-time 20, 25 hours a week when they want to work full-time, when you all of that together, real unemployment is 10.5 percent.”
Pass the popcorn, Nahanni.
