[See NewsBusters for more.] Friday saw unexpectedly great jobs numbers that caused the unemployment rate to go down. It also saw President Trump give a news conference where he said George Floyd would be proud of what is going on across the country. These two things led many in the media, including MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell, to take Trump out of context and accuse him of saying that Floyd would be proud of Friday's job report.
