The impetus for the fact check was a tweet sent Monday by Trump that claimed "the GDP Rate (4.2%) is higher than the Unemployment Rate (3.9%) for the first time in over 100 years!"
Following last Friday's blockbuster August jobs report, and with nail-biting midterm elections less than 60 days away, the 44th and 45th presidents crossed swords, with Mr Trump continuing to counterpunch through the weekend and into Monday morning.
GDP growth exceeded the jobless rate as recently as the first quarter of 2006, when unemployment was about 4.7% and quarterly GDP growth was 5.4%, government data show.
"President Trump is lying, even about good news", Lemon said.
This wasn't the first time Hassett has weighed in on a presidential tweet. I guess I have a magic wand, 4.2%, and we will do MUCH better than this!

China hosts African leaders amid aid criticism
China has poured billions in loans for roads, railways, ports and other major infrastructure projects in Asia and Africa. He also voiced hope that Chinese and African companies could find new ways to cooperate in the field of technology.
And indeed, most of Hassett's comments were flattering as he praised Trump's record on the economy. "We have just begun".
The president seemed to be imprecisely referencing remarks made by Obama at a town hall event in 2016, in which he questioned promises from Trump regarding manufacturing jobs, not economic growth. "What magic wand do you have?" he asked.
"I have to kind of remind them, actually", he said in an address in IL, "those job numbers are the same as they were in 2015 and 2016".
The International Monetary Fund now predicts 2.9% growth this year and next, marking the longest period of expansion in U.S. history. The bulk of that decade of growth was under Obama's presidency, and can fairly be credited to him. Millions of Americans who can't stand Obama will just tune out the rhetoric, so different than Trump's and so missed by his supporters, but Obama's view of his successor is shared by prominent conservatives such as columnists George Will and Michael Gerson and Sens. Several economists and journalists were quick to make that point on Twitter.
