Paul Krugman Gets Mocked by Sarah Sanders for His Failed Economic Prediction...
We're officially in the final hours of 2017. Needless to say, it's been a good year (see Adios! ICE Busts Over 40,000 Illegals in Trump’s First 100 Days… and President Donald Trump Signs Tax Reform into Law). Any year without that pantsuited wench Hillary in the Oval Office is bound to be a good one.
Unfortunately, leftists can't really say they've had the best year. They've done everything they can undermine and cast doubt on conservative policies. Almost always to disastrous effect. Just ask Paul Krugman. He predicted an irreparable economic hellscape under the Trump. Boy, was he wrong he was.
Greatest story of the year: booming @realDonaldTrump economy. Worst prediction for the year: https://t.co/b6PGzp48zM— Kayleigh McEnany (@Kayleigh McEnany) 1514587292.0
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders mocked New York Times columnist Paul Krugman for predicting the U.S. economy would never recover from a Donald Trump presidency.
Sanders referenced Krugman’s Nov 9, 2016 declaration that “if the question is when markets will recover, a first-pass answer is never.” The Nobel Prize-winning economist continued “under any circumstances, putting an irresponsible, ignorant man who takes his advice from all the wrong people in charge of the nation with the world’s most important economy would be very bad news. What makes it especially bad right now, however, is the fundamentally fragile state much of the world is still in, eight years after the great financial crisis.”
I bet Paulie feels like a real loser right about now.
Unfortunately for Krugman and his fellow leftist wing nuts, the economy is booming like the subwoofer in a crack dealer's Chevy Caprice. Mind you, that's before Trump's tax cut. Even though the cuts haven't even taken effect yet, companies are already raising wages, giving bonuses, and donating more to charity.
Despite what leftists think, loosening up the government's stranglehold on business and allowing people to keep their own greenbacks is a sound economic strategy.
But, good luck convincing them on that:
