Mama always told me not to believe in end-of-the-world-predictions. Like the one in 2012. Or the 500 claims about climate change melting, I mean freezing, the earth. Such predictions are sillier than Hillary’s attempts to make dictator pantsuits a thing.
Now a whole slew of Democratic predictions being proven false. You know the ones. Foretelling doom and destruction under President Trump (see Economist Says ‘Market Will Never Recover Under Trump.’ Dow Hits All Time High SAME DAY!). Turns out the crystal ball lies.
Foreign tourism to New York City is set to rise 3.6 percent this year — defying yet another of the many doomsday predictions about Donald Trump’s presidency.
Back in February, the city tourism agency said Trump’s “travel ban and related rhetoric” would mean a drop of 300,000 visitors this year. But the NYC & Co. prophecy proved false.
Gee whiz, maybe it’s because people feel safer traveling to America with more restrictions on stabby terrorists. Or they want to see an American SJW, subspecies snowflake, in real life. Don’t touch, they bite.
Finance expert Steve Rattner foresaw “a market crash of historic proportions” under a President Trump. Moody’s warned of a “weaker” economy. Many said 2 percent GDP growth was the best that could be hoped for.
In fact, the Dow has climbed more than 25 percent since Hillary Clinton conceded. And the first two full quarters of Trump’s term both saw growth of 3 percent or more. Oops.
More recently, Trump’s cutbacks of money to help folks sign up for ObamaCare brought warnings that enrollment would surely plummet. Over the first few days of open enrollment this year, a record number of people signed up, The Hill reported Tuesday.
This isn’t the first time the left has been wrong. Spoiler: it won’t be the last…
