The GOP just tried to brag about Trump’s economy and it backfired bigly

After Donald Trump’s campaign rally-style visit to a newly completed Shell plastics factory in western Pennsylvania — an example of exactly the kind of environmentally-harmful energy industry manufacturing that America needs to innovate its way away from to ensure the planet’s eventual survival — the Republican Party decided to send an ill-timed celebratory tweet.

Sent on a day when the financial markets were tanking in the largest rout of the year to date, the tweet became an ironic contradiction— placing the responsibility for the economy squarely at Donald Trump’s feet on a day when he was furiously assigning blame to everyone else he could think of.

No “MAGIC WAND” could save the GOP from the derision of Twitter users who noted the incongruity between financial reality and the Republican talking points.

Nice try, GOP.

Next time, check the news before you post such blatant masturbatory self-congratulations. You’ll save yourself a heap of embarrassment.
