I’ll give the Democratic party credit for innovative and progressive thinking, hands down, any day. But witchcraft? Well, apparently Donald Trump thinks so. Take a look.

Now this is an interesting approach to political analysis, I must say. Clearly, any signs of economic change, good or bad, are going to be reported immediately, and last month the inverted yield curve was reported. This economic indicator has preceded every recession for the past fifty years, so it is taken seriously. But Donald Trump, in his sublime ignorance of how the economy actually works, has now taken to blaming the “will” of the “selfish” Democrats for this dire economic flash point. Oh, and we willed the manufacturing sector to slow down the past two consecutive quarters, as well? So, let me see if I have this straight: the economy is a little bit like a spoon, and the Democrats are Uri Geller, and we can bend it with our minds — is that right? Wow, that’s impressive.

Trump is off his nut this morning on the economy. He’s bad mouthing Jerome Powell, again, apparently oblivious to how he praised him to the hilt the day he chose him.

Strong, committed and smart has devolved to “clueless” and “horrendous lack of vision.” Okey doke. But Trump has a vision, yes siree.

Larry Kudlow informs us there is no recession, and we are glad to hear his views. We learned in 2007 exactly how much his economic opinion was worth, when he told us then, as he’s telling us now, not to worry about a thing. Maybe Kudlow could explain to us, why, if there’s no recession, Trump wants to employ the tactics that one uses during a recession to mitigate the fall? Just askin’.

  1. When I saw this pop up I laughed out loud! Trump got a degree in Economics – hmmmm he didn’t seem to be paying attention in class. He turns on his own appointees when things don’t go his way. This idiot HAS to go!!! (Dee goes to dust off her voodoo spell book. Ha ha ha!)

    • I had the same reaction! Oh, the economy is tanking, because the Democrats are gathered in circles, drawing pentagrams and chanting spells. It’s got nothing to do with Trump’s moronic trade war, oh heavens no! Maybe we can come up with a vanishing spell for Donald Trump. Why worry about getting out the vote and all that? We can just brainstorm it. (Wouldn’t it be nice?)

      • Maybe we should troll Trump with voodoo images. I think I have an old pair of glasses with one lens. I’ll have to get that out. And light a cigar and pour a glass of rum, too.

  2. In his novel The Shining, Stephen King quoted a very famous Poe story about a party meant to shut the ugliness of a plague outside its walls. There is a clock that makes everyone just STOP when it strikes the hour, as if it were reminding them of an inevitable doom. The inverted yield curve report is that clock striking the hour, reminding everyone how short time has gotten. And not Cthulhu is going to save that old man’s ass.

    • Cthulhu! I love Cthulhu! Lovecraft foresaw all of this. Remember his story about the inbred tiny monsters that lived under the floorboards? That’s the origin of Trump supporters.

      • YES, the Martense clan in “The Lurking Fear”, one of two times HPL went crazy with the gore. The other is “Herbert West: Reanimator”, which had a nasty end for its title character which I think Trump will see happen to his businesses and political career.

  3. It is breathtaking the lengths he will go to in avoiding blame.
    I have seen 10-year-olds more mature in owning up to their mistakes.
    He should have a sign on his desk that reads “The buck NEVER stops here”.

    • Just watch, the conspiracy theories will start mounting up soon. Unless I miss my guess, the way Trump will go down in flames is as the result of Deep State plots. It can’t possibly be because he’s utterly incompetent and enough people woke up to the fact. No, to save face and continue to live in his fantasy realm, it will be that the Forces of Evil overtook him, i;e., the Deep State, the Fake News Media, the Socialist/Communist Democrats, you name it — and then maybe he’ll found the Trump network. Who knows?

  4. Not Dems. Nope! Unh-uh! The repugs are the ones that are the masters of voodoo economics and that’s what this train of thought sounds like. Man, if just ‘willing’ something really worked, wouldn’t we all be lottery winners, have world peace, fix the climate, or erase tRump and everything he’s broken since he was born? If tinyfingers wants the economy to be good, why doesn’t he just ‘will’ it to be so, since he seems to think that idiocy works. Or he could just shut the hell up, my personal choice. Good God, what a moran!

    • Don’t you love that sentence? The world is laughing at that right now. I just read a piece in Newsweek that Trump didn’t give any evidence or examples of the Democrats “willing” bad things on the economy — but “why bother?” is how they ended the paragraph? He’s just raving again. Incredible.

  5. Economics be all toil and trouble
    Cauldron boil and cauldron bubble.
    Leaf of hemlock, twig of spruce
    Command the Orange One: Drink this juice!
