Instead of Throwing Shade, WAPO Actually Gives Trump Some Props

Stop the press! This day will go down in history as a day during which something happened that no one would ever expect.

It revealed a tweet that came seemingly out of nowhere…and no, it wasn’t from Donald Trump. Well, not quite.

On this day in history, on June 23, 2017, someone from the Washington Post actually gave President Trump some props instead of throwing shade, which they tend to do a lot.

The tweet by Washington Post’s National Correspondent Philip Bump was brought to my attention when I noticed a tweet, with some advice for Bump and others, by Donald Trump, Jr.

Bump’s tweet consisted of two pictures along with the words, “Give credit where it’s due: He nailed this one. (Five years ago to the minute.)”

Here’s Trump’s tweet from 2012 that Bump was referencing. At the time, the housing market bubble had burst and Trump noted not only that now was the time to buy houses, but added that in five years people would remember his advice. That was to say that five years from 2012, housing prices would have increased tremendously.

Bump included a chart in his tweet noting that Trump was right. It’s 2017 and the housing market has not only recovered, housing prices have risen with the average price being greater than in 2006.

While Trump did not retweet his son’s tweet or make any reference to the props given by WAPO’s Bump, he did retweet a video segment by FOX and Friends that recalled what Bump noted. That is that he predicted the housing recovery, and time period, back in 2012.

What do you think? Will this make the rounds of the news or will CNN and MSNBC continue to focus on Trump/Russia?
