Appearing Tuesday on the Fox Business Network, House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) dismissed record-low black unemployment under President Donald Trump, stating black Americans “were fully employed during slavery.” A transcript is as follows: NEIL CAVUTO: As you’ve been seeing with Michael Bloomberg, he’s been jumping in the polls on the heels of his very expensive, pricey ad buys if you include $125 million slated for Super Tuesday. Could you, would you back him? REP. JAMES CLYBURN: I’m going to back whoever our nominee is — Absolutely. CAVUTO: Even with the things he’s said about African-Americans? Does that bother you? REP. CLYBURN: Not as much as what Trump has said about African-Americans.


WOW!! Can you imagine the reaction if President Trump had said something like this!!

Actually Clyburn the unemployment numbers are true and it’s making you squirm. It’s getting more difficult to keep your hypnotized followers on the plantation when the truth has never been clearer. If voting for a condescending elitist snob who is literally buying your Party is preferable to vastly improved financial circumstances for your own race you sir have lost your humanity.

So Mr. Clyburn...Are you suggesting we return to the good old days of FULL black employment? Sure sounds like it!

Poor James Clyburn is tied to the Democrat plantation for life! No critical thinking for this Representative! What’s truly frightening is he’s not the only “imbecile” in Congress we’re paying for! Another thought Guam would tip over and another thought our astronauts planted a flag on Mars! The downside of gerrymandering!

OMG give it a rest. There is nothing that would make you happier than knowing no black person or black family is able to take care of their own needs. You want them looking to the government to take care of them. An employed independent black person just might think twice about heading back to the plantation.

It’s a flabbergasting statement. It shows absolute corruption of thought, emotion, and sense of justice. Is he saying blacks are better off on welfare? Black jobs don’t matter? Working blacks are scum compared to an elite like him and deserve to be slaves? What the hell? What?

You are still a slave, Mr. Clyburn, a slave of the Democrat Party, a still ignorant. It's just not possible to educate an idiot, so you will always be that way. Alas, you won't be able to find any help, as no one wants to take on a bitter, resentful, and unhappy old man.

Clyburn is right about all blacks being put to work, but employment also implies payment and doing so voluntarily. He did forget to mention that all the slaveowners were Democrats though. I wonder if he misses The Good Old Days?

fta: "REP. CLYBURN: No, because it’s not true. I’m saying that the African American unemployment is not the lowest it’s ever been unless you count slavery… We were fully employed during slavery. So, it all depends how you measure this up." This is good to know. If by your very words Blacks were "employed" during slavery, that is engaging in activity for compensation (food, housing, clothing, etc), how can you then support reparations? You have been paid for your work if you were truly "employed."

Clyburn is a racist who does not understand the difference between ownership and employment. Democrats cannot acknowledge Trump's accomplishments because they expose the reality that Democrats and their policies are utter failures.

I see where this is going. The reparations idea was going nowhere. So now they will claim that the slaves were forced into unemployment when they were freed from slavery against their wills. So the government actually owes for past unemployment benefits that were never paid to the unemployed slaves. Hey, its as "logical" as anything else the lie-berals keep coming up with...

Does Clyburn realize it was his own party that owned the slaves, fought bitterly against his community getting to vote and have civil rights? Does he also realize that his party still has his community in a newer form of slavery, thanks to LBJ? Does he realize that it was the GOP that not only helped those freed slaves defend themselves from the democrat created KKK, but armed them as well? Does he notice that it was his party which created the Jim Crow laws that kept his community segregated in the South? He does know right, that MLK was REPUBLICAN? One of the most hated governors of the segregation era was George Wallace and he was Democrat. We could go on and on listing his ignorance about his own party. But I guess this Democrat party foreman and collaborator in his own community's mental enslavement and misery is too fat and well paid to even care.

As usual they left makes a statement that is really stupid. Clyburn does not know history, there were blacks that had businesses that hired blacks that were not slaves. Undoubtedly there were freed blacks that had problems getting a job. I am tired of the Blacks insisting on being called African-Americans. They are Black citizens or just citizens, there is not need for anyone to declare the color of ones skin. The color of the skin has no indication of the IQ of any person. Dr. Ben Carson is a prime example of that. Why do Blacks insist on being part of a down trodden minority. I have seen more blacks on TV as actors, great news commentators, and the other great talents in Hollywood in the last 5 years than I saw in my whole life. I have seen Black entertainers come of from strictly comic relief actors to prominent actors. Clyburn made a really stupid statement because he is ignorant of modern day black.

Jim Clyburn does not have a lock on Black Congressional Leadership stupidity, as remember when his neighboring Black Congressman Hank Johnson of Georgia announced in Congress that the island of Guam was in danger of tipping over and falling into the Pacific Ocean because of the large number of US military personnel who are stationed there?

President Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy at the United States-Mexico border is ensuring pregnant migrants are not using their court dates in the U.S. to then deliver their children on American soil, thus securing them birthright citizenship. Currently, Trump’s Remain in Mexico policy has made sure that southern border crossers claiming asylum are returned to Mexico or their native Central American country while they await their asylum hearings in the U.S. The policy has prevented mass fraud where illegal aliens are released into the interior of the U.S. only to never show up for their asylum hearings and never leave the country.

In the eyes of Washington politicians and lobbyists, President Donald Trump is the most dangerous person in the world. First, he’s a rich, white male who has run a generally conservative administration. Second, he’s impulsive and quick to take offense. And lastly, he’s genuinely making progress at taking down the Swamp. However, Trump’s progress shows just how deep the Swamp is -- because no matter how much he does, there’s always another monster crawling out. Some of the monsters are familiar. Republican Oklahoma senator James Lankford has followed in his predecessor’s footsteps by releasing an annual report on examples of inefficient and wasteful spending in the federal government.

The mainstream media has been doing its level best to claim that new intelligence reports about Russian meddling in the U.S. election, helping Bernie Sanders, is really all about Russia sowing chaos, or else getting Bernie up there on the Democrat slot to re-elect Trump. It's always Trump who's the real heart of these Russian affections, see, and Bernie is just a means. It's rubbish. The Russians have always had Sanders at a first-draft choice for president, not just in this election but in the 2016 election, too.

That was a four-point gain from the prior survey taken at the end of 2019. That is the highest approval rating since the quarterly survey was launched in 2017. The survey was taken between February 2 and February 10, a period in which the Senate was holding its impeachment trial and eventually voted to acquit the president.

Appearing Tuesday on the Fox Business Network, House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) dismissed record-low black unemployment under President Donald Trump, stating black Americans “were fully employed during slavery.” A transcript is as follows: NEIL CAVUTO: As you’ve been seeing with Michael Bloomberg, he’s been jumping in the polls on the heels of his very expensive, pricey ad buys if you include $125 million slated for Super Tuesday. Could you, would you back him? REP. JAMES CLYBURN: I’m going to back whoever our nominee is — Absolutely. CAVUTO: Even with the things he’s said about African-Americans? Does that bother you? REP. CLYBURN: Not as much as what Trump has said about African-Americans.
