Using a bit of the original question to not answer it and pivot to control the narrative..
ie "what about the large job losses?"
"I would like to look at the job gains this year and how it helps our economy"
You seem to be answering the question about jobs but pivoted away from losses to gains.
Like the Reflexive control in the above article you have a bit of truth and then move it so as not to answer the question and move it to your advantage. KellyAnn Conway is a master at this..
