Former GE CEO Jack Welch was on Fox News this afternoon, where he explained his tweet earlier in the day suggesting that President Barack Obama had manipulated the data in the jobs report.
Fox anchor Eric Bolling asked him about a Washington Free Beacon report that notes two economists working at the Bureau of labour statistics have donated to the Obama campaign — one at least $9,000 over the last three election cycles and one at least $270 this time around.
Welch didn’t offer any judgment on that.
“It’s just ironic that these assumptions all came this way the month before the election,” Welch said. “You can draw your own conclusions.”
