Liar Lies Lyingly

I’m shocked.

HuffPo caught this on Chuck Todd’s Sunday Talkies:

AL GORE: The loss of jobs in the coal industry started with the mechanization of the coal industry. Natural gas started displacing coal and the fossil fuel sector. And promising to re-create the 19th century is not a visionary strategy for a successful 21st century. (END TAPE)

CHUCK TODD: Is he right that you guys are making a false promise though to some of these fossil fuel industries?

EPA ADMINISTRATOR SCOTT PRUITT: Dead wrong. Because the numbers show exactly the opposite in fact since the fourth quarter of last year to most recently added almost 50,000 jobs in the coal sector. In the month of May alone, almost 7,000 jobs.

…which is a pretty remarkable lie when you consider that the entire set of coal miners consists of about 50,000 workers, according to the BLS, and only about 400 more people started work in coal. So either there were none before the Russian Usurper took office or Fossil Fuel Fetishist Pruitt just stone-cold lied to the American People, but mostly he lied to the miners.

    Mr. Pruitt is also likely aware that coal was killed dead during Cheney’s secret meetings with the oil industry. If not, he needs to read up on the fracking confefe.

    You forgot to add in the lobbyists and the politicians they are all hiring to work for the coal industry.

    Pruitt has proven to be the ideal Trump appointee in a highly competitive group.

    Pruitt spent years as a liar in OK and now on the national stage he really sounds like a total, obvious liar with made-up stats and embarrassing fellating of Trump.
