A few outlets fact-checked Mrs Leon Spinks/Mrs Michael Strahan. ABRAMS: "The Republican tax bill rigged the system against working people. Rather than bringing back jobs, plants are closing, layoffs are looming and wages struggle to keep pace with the actual cost of living. THE FACTS: The economy is doing better in the wake of the Trump administration's tax cuts than Abrams suggests. The number of people seeking unemployment benefits, a proxy for layoffs, briefly fell to a five-decade low last month. And average hourly pay is running ahead of inflation. ABRAMS, in the Democratic response: "We know bipartisanship could craft a 21st century immigration plan but this administration chooses to cage children and tear families apart." THE FACTS: The cages that Abrams mentions are actually chain-link fences and the Obama administration used them, too. How nice of her to wish everyone a Happy Lunar New Year. WTF. Too politically incorrect to say Gung Hay Fat Choy? Year of the pig and all.
