REPORTER: In the past, the president has referred to particular jobs reports as "phony" or "totally fiction." Does the president believe that this jobs report was accurate, and a fair way to measure the economy?
SPICER: Yeah, I talked to the president prior to this, and he said to quote him very clearly: "They may have been phony in the past, but it's very real now."
Spicer laughs; the reporters in the room laugh.
Hahaha what a fun joke! So much laughter! The president has no respect for facts unless they favor him! Hahaha oh my aching sides! https://t.co/yg61O2nwnj— Melissa McEwan (@Shakestweetz) March 10, 2017
