The elitist left’s saying two very important things here:
1. The economy, businesses, and Americans doing pretty damn good
2. Democrats and the totality of the left cannot run against Trump in 2020 if economy does not crash and if we the American people are not suffering, and so, burn baby burn!!!
Let that sink in, America.
NBC News correspondent Richard Engel was the lone voice to side with “Real Time” host Bill Maher on Friday night, after the comedian reiterated his “hopes” that a U.S. economic recession would help block President Trump’s reelection in 2020.
“Short-term pain might be better than long-term destruction of the Constitution,” Engel argued.
Really? There was a fucking Hell of a lot of both during the eight long years of Barack Obama.
But Maher — a multimillionaire whose investments include a stake in MLB’s New York Mets — tried to make the case that economic hardship for the nation might help him and other liberals realize their dream of preventing a second Trump term.
“You should wish for a recession because that would definitely get [Trump] unelected,” Maher shot back, earning him a few claps from his Los Angeles studio audience.
Another guest, former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci, attempted to lower the temperature of the conversation.
“You don’t really want a recession,” Scaramucci tried to convince Maher.
“I really do,” the host replied. “We have survived many recessions, we can’t survive another Donald Trump term.”
Last week, Maher had revived his stance that a recession would be “worth it” because it would hurt Trump’s reelection.
It is beyond time America woke up to the fact the left and all its wealthy bloviated celebrity henchmen/women find the rest of us expendable for their cause.
