With the #JobsReport being released today, here is how every President in the last 55 years has done in terms of the number of jobs added to the US economy during the first 47 full months of their term.

Trump's term ranks last out of these 14 Presidential terms.
This data comes from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (bls.gov) and was calculated by adding all the monthly jobs report for each month of every Presidential term, from February of the year of inauguration until December of the year of the next election. 47 months.
Here are the numbers:
1) Clinton (02/1993-12/96) - 11.349 million jobs added.
2) Clinton (02/1997-12/00) - 11.346 million jobs added.
3) Reagan (02/1985-12/88) - 10.526 million jobs added.
4) Carter (02/1977-12/80) - 10.253 million jobs added.
5) Obama (02/2013-12/16) - 10.179 million jobs added.
6) Johnson (02/1965-12/68) - 9.666 million jobs added.
7) Nixon (02/1969-12/72) - 5.829 million jobs added.
8) Reagan (02/1981-12/84) - 5.074 million jobs added.
9) Nixon/Ford (02/1973-12/76) - 4.831 million jobs added.
10) Bush (02/1989-12/92) - 2.334 million jobs added.
11) Bush (02/2005-12/08) - 2.065 million jobs added.
12) Obama (02/2009-12/12) - 1.017 million jobs added.
13) Bush (02/2001-12/04) - 0.074 million jobs lost.
14) Trump (02/2017-12/20) - 3.003 million jobs lost.
So far, a net 3.003 million jobs have been lost from US payrolls since Trump's first monthly jobs report in February, 2017.
The only other President during this period to have lost jobs at the 47 month mark was George W. Bush, who had lost 74,000 jobs in his first term.

But the US economy added 150,000 jobs in January, 2005, allowing Bush to close out his first term with a small net gain of jobs.
Unless the US economy somehow gains over three million jobs this month (extraordinarily unlikely), Trump will become the first President since Herbert Hoover to have a net loss of jobs during the span of a four year Presidential term.

I don’t know that any politician in US history has lost as much influence and political capital in a six day time span than Trump has.

Sunday: We hear audio of Trump threatening Georgia’s Secretary of State if he didn’t cheat to help him overthrow the election.
Monday: Trump visits Georgia to try to help the Republican candidates Perdue and Loeffler win their run-offs.

Tuesday: Perdue and Loeffler both lose.

Wednesday: Trump incites his supporters to storm the US Capitol. Five people are killed including a US Capitol Police officer.
Thursday: Congress formally ratifies Joe Biden’s defeat of Donald Trump in the Electoral College.

Multiple aides resign, including two of his few remaining original Cabinet members.

Friday: Congress readies for impeaching him a second time. Trump is kicked off of Twitter.

Many people do not realize that they carry this bias within them, but ...

When black people and white people do the exact same things, they view them as more harsh when blacks do it. And have more sympathy and leniency when whites do it.
And, on the other side, when the exact same things happen to blacks and whites, they’re seen as less severe when they happen to blacks. And more concerning when it happens to whites.

Obviously, to various extents, this can go both ways. But I see this part of the societal bias.
If a lot of my white friends get mad and raise their voices in anger when in public, people are like “that guy really should calm down.”

If I lose my cool, somebody’s gonna think “OH MY GOD ... IT’S HAPPENING! MY DAD WARNED ME ABOUT THIS. IS IT TIME TO CALL 911??”

I've had five or six separate conversations with other black guys over the last 24 hours. In every conversation, I ask "what would have happened if you and I rushed the capitol?"

Without exception, the consensus between all of us is that we'd be shot. Quickly.
Not only would we be quickly disposed of but then @TuckerCarlson would be doing a segment on us. "Two Black radicals stormed the US Capitol today. They must have been with ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter! And one of them was a Never Trumper!! This is frightening!!"
Every. Single. Conversation.

We don’t even have to say complete sentences.

Me: “Hey!”
Other guy: “What’s going on?”
Me: “Whatcha think about ...”
Other guy: “(Interrupting) if it was US ...”

(Exchange double nods)

End of conversation.

In case anyone doesn’t realize this, one of the dumbest places to commit crime is a federal building like the US Capitol.

- There are cameras everywhere. And your faces are on many of them. They WILL identify and catch you. It’s only a matter of when they get around to it.
- You didn’t just commit a crime. You committed a FEDERAL crime, on federal property. When they catch you - and they WILL - you are going to go to prison. Not jail. Not the County lockup. Federal prison. Save up for a good lawyer.
- You didn’t just commit any crime. You committed a crime that made world news. You embarrassed a lot of law enforcement organizations who now are extra motivated to make sure that you’re made an example of.

You know what needs to happen?

A lot of people need to be arrested. And taken into custody. And HELD in custody. And then prosecuted.

This is the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. We don't tolerate this kind of foolishness.
And to the #JimCrowCaucus, including @HawleyMO and @tedcruz, this is on YOU. None of your political careers will ever recover from this.
You like voting for President?

Guess what's not going to happen for at least a very long time if you commit a federal crime?

That's right. You voting for President.

Call me naive, but I am not one of the folks who thinks that Trump is going to personally exert long-term influence over the GOP.

1) A lot of his allure came from the idea that he's a "winner." He's now been repeatedly proven to be a loser.
2) We're going to hear more phone calls, tapes, etc. and other evidence showing some of the terrible things Trump has done that we haven't even thought of yet. This is NOT going to add to his political capital.
3) Trump is almost undoubtedly going to face charges. And could be convicted. He could even face prison time. None of which will help his clout or reputation. Especially not when any evidence strong enough to warrant such a prosecution comes out.
