Fox Biz Host Tears Into Mnuchin For Downplaying Unemployment: 'They Don't Have JOBS!'

Neil Cavuto was unimpressed with Steven Mnuchin's high-handed spin on the unemployment numbers.

Fox News host Neil Cavuto lashed out at Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin on Thursday after he suggested on CNBC that unemployment numbers are “not relevant” during a pandemic.

“Mr. Secretary, they are relevant,” Cavuto implored Mnuchin on his Fox Business program. “Those are 3.25 million Americans that don’t have jobs anymore.”

“And you might look at them as aberration,” he continued. “But they matter to those people because you know what? They don’t have jobs!”

Fox Business correspondent Charlie Gasparino agreed that Mnuchin’s statement was “horrible.”

“You’ve got to choose your words very carefully,” Cavuto remarked. “They are human beings who are desperately looking for something.”
