How did Dems respond to record-low unemployment for everyone?

After U.S. businesses--encouraged by Trump's pro-America policies--added 223,000 new jobs last month, driving unemployment to 3.8 percent--a figure never bested in the last 50 years (tying 2000 and 1969)--Democrats were temporarily at a loss for how to respond.

You'd think smart Democrat pols would simply say nothing, counting on most Americans either not hearing about the record or not understanding it.  After all, the exalted Barack himself said he (Obama) had "set the stage" for Trump by "leaving a booming economy"--a phrase that has appeared dozens of times in the last 3 days, so many Americans would give Obama credit for it.

Dem pols know that their base--especially low-infomation voters--would have no way of knowing any different.  All they know is the pro-Democrat propaganda they hear on TV: that Democrats supposedly care about them, Republicans hate the working poor and Obama produced the best economy in history.  So better to just ignore it, eh?

But Democrats--led by Pelosi, Hilliary, Barack and Schumer--are always looking for "an insurance policy" to torpedo the Republicans, so Nancy Pelosi issued an official statement saying the jobs report was trivial:
May’s jobs report shows that strong employment numbers mean little to the families hit with soaring new costs under the Republicans’ watch.

“Republicans’ cruel, cynical health care sabotage campaign is already spiking families’ premiums by double digits and pushing millions off their coverage, according to the nonpartisan CBO.  Big Pharma continues to hoard the benefits of the GOP tax scam, using their handouts to further enrich executives and shareholders instead of lowering prescription drug costs for seniors and sick kids. 
"At the same time, the President’s reckless policies are exploding gas prices, wiping out the few meager gains that some families should have received from the GOP tax scam, as wages remain stagnant.

“From day one the White House and Republicans in Congress have sold out working and middle class families to further enrich the wealthy and big corporations shipping jobs overseas. 
More but you get the drift.  Hateful, lying, power-mad, MS-13-loving monsters.
