But why are we surprised?
Krugman, The New York Times scribbler and winner of the Leftist Award known as the Nobel Prize winning economist, (economist, ha) looks like he should actually quit his day job and take up singing or something.
Sanders tweeted Friday:
"Greatest story of the year: booming @realDonaldTrump economy. Worst prediction for the year: pic.twitter.com/b6PGzp48zM. --Sarah Sanders (@PressSec) December 29, 2017The world famous "economist" wrote back shortly after midnight as election results were coming in:
"It really does now look like President Donald J. Trump, and markets are plunging. When might we expect them to recover? Frankiy, I find it hard to care much, even though this is my specialty."Paulie's mom should have told him to say nothing when you don't know what the hell you're talking about.
So I know that I'm not going to take Krugman's advice about economic trends.
