  1. Here comes the recession. It was bound to happen.

    • The original comment you responded to was, “Here comes the recession. It was bound to happen.” You imply that Obama is to blame for a prolonged time before the next recession because his recovery was slow. Two problems there. 1)- You are clearly assigning blame to the one who cleaned up the mess, Obama, without blaming the one who made the mess, Bush. To do that, you conflated recession with recovery. That’s called a “red herring”. Yes, the worse the recession, the longer the recovery. 2)- It doesn’t work that way. Recessions aren’t DUE to happen every seven years. It’s an average. You are doing some real mental gymnastics here in order to blame Obama and shift blame from Trump. It’s overly simplistic, uninformed, and an obvious attempt to create a false little narrative by attempting to use a technicality. You’d make a better spin doctor than an economist, that is if you were a right wing spin doctor who targets their message to dumbass Trump followers who don’t want to use their brains and only want to confirm their bias.

    • @J Groovy Perfect explanation there, thanks. My other major issue is the cognitive dissonance that prompts trumptards to criticize obama level debt in a recovery while ignoring faster increases by trump in a boom

    • Whjerts 56 – Money isn’t everything, and regulations exist for a reason. In China, they put up skyscrapers five times faster than in the US. There are also no labor unions, the environment is bad, more construction workers die building those skyscrapers, and if the people complain..? Look at what’s happening in Hong Kong. Trump is acting reckless by making mindless rules about dropping two regulations for every new one. He is gutting the EPA and the FDA. He is letting polluters dump known toxins into the environment for financial and personal political gain. Wake up and smell the pesticides.

    China as the best phone s

  3. Trump will blame Obama for this! Lol

    • @jkieck73 you’re a sexist.

    • @Jamie Cox you’re so full of crap….China’s devalued their currency making their products cheaper so there’s be little to no change in costs to us. Tell us what you’re spending more on now? You simpleton.

    • @Sammy Bolo and you’re an idiot because even quantitative specialist have said that we will pay more for any everything that is directly related to China if we don’t get this tariff situation under control! Of course things haven’t gone up in price that much or at all yet given the fact that this just happened! What rock have you been sleeping under

    • Biggest crash in US history occurred under OBAMA. And he spent his ENTIRE presidency making it worse.

    • @Mark Nayda you’re obviously a troll or an idiot, cuz you have to be a simpleton to make such a fake news statement like that! Every honest Republican would even admit that George Bush was the reason for the recession, and not Barack Obama!

  4. Trump will take credit for anything, and responsibility for nothing.

      You are mixing up Obama with Trump. When Trump takes credit, he deserves some. BO, that stinker took credit for everything including good weather. He even told us that his election would see the oceans stop rising. Do you remember any of that?

    • Thomas Gassett – I do remember him inheriting the worst recession we’ll see in our lifetime from his predecessor and him tasked with pulling us back from the brink of economic collapse

      @Michael Lopez Funny, I remember the shallowest, slowest recovery in our life times. I also remember you Lefty bed wetters insisting everyone should own a home, even those that can’t afford it. Look up where Sub prime loans came from, and for once in your limp Lefty life … learn something other than democrat lying points.

    • Clinton official pleads guilty to treason for China collusion!

  6. Stop tweeting and get some people around you who know what they’re doing, you useless, neuronally challenged traffic cone!

  7. Trump: “Nothing is my fault! I only help the economy! It’s fake news that anything is wrong!”

  8. You’re damn right he chickened out on that China deal. China for the win!

    Who are the men Jeffery Epstein offered those under age girls to? Trump and Clinton are on the flight logs, so why is the media not turning up the heat to find out????? whats the deal with the names and when are the charges going to be served?

    • The media have been told to brush it under the carpet,there is a oil painting of Bill Clinton in a blue dress and red shoes on Epsteins wall in his house ?
      The FBI divers off the island are reportedly finding children’s bones in the sea.pretty sick this lot.
      Without independent news outlets we would know nothing.
      It looks like Epstein was strangled the bones in his neck were broke.
