One of the many deeply depressing aspects of psychopath Donald Trump’s Presidential victory is the fact that he will surely credit himself for the economic recovery that Obama has slowly and carefully overseen for the past eight years after the disastrous Bush administration.
In fact, Trump is already crediting himself with somehow saving our economy, despite the fact that he has yet to be sworn in. Trump recently posted a tweet that just might surpass all of his others in terms of sheer craziness and wrong-ness.
Wrote Trump through his favorite inane medium of Twitter that seems tailor-made for him: “The U.S. Consumer Confidence Index for December surged nearly four points to 113.7, THE HIGHEST LEVEL IN MORE THAN 15 YEARS! Thanks Donald!” Trump’s partially all-caps declaration of his own magical greatness clearly ignores the fact that here has been a steady upward trend for years, ever since Barack Obama entered in the White House in 2009. President-Elect Trump (cringe…) also forgets the fact that the consumer confidence index always jumps when a new President is voted in and takes office. And, of course, we haven’t touched yet upon how Trump just thanked himself…in the third person. Are you terrified that we’re now going to have a complete buffoon running our country?
