Speaking about the U.S. economy, O'Malley offered this deep thought: “We’re the only species on the planet without full employment”

Mind blown, Martin.

But some were perplexed by O'Malley's comment. Are humans the only species without full employment?

"We're the only species on the planet without full employment" - huh?

What about this cat?

Or these pigeons?

.@MartinOMalley says we're the only species without full employment. Pigeons. He forgot about pigeons.

What about sloths? Or poodles?

"We're the only species on the planet without full employment." @MartinOMalley has evidently never met a sloth. Or a poodle. #DemTownHall

Or all these animal emojis?
