Trump's Biggest Whoppers

@realDonaldTrump has long used the stock market - which has been rising since March 2009 - as a proxy for his success. Yet lurking beneath are a raft of often inter-connected problems that he never mentions:

1) The housing industry (1/6 of U.S. economy) has been slowing

2) Auto industry slowing

3) Profit growth cooling

4) Tariff war hurting everyone from farmers and steel companies to consumers

5) $1 trillion deficit

6) national debt on track to hit $33 trillion by 2027

7) Social Security has lost one year of projected solvency since Trump came to office; his administration warns of a 21% cut by 2033

8) Medicare’s hospital insurance program has lost three years of solvency on Trump’s watch - will run out of money by 2026. Don’t get sick

Jay Bookman Retweeted Rachel Maddow MSNBC

It's important to make clear that under Georgia law passed in 2017, these 53,000 can still vote if they bring ID to their polling place. It would be tragic and counterproductive if media coverage dissuaded those people from turning out.

No sheet Sherlock, but I go with my first impulse Trump supporters are as dumb as a box of rocks they wouldn't get it.

Nor would many people who read this site.  That is why I posted it.  And there are lots and lots of Trump supporters who would have understood what Gingrinch meant.

As a child, White House immigration adviser Stephen Miller "would pour glue on his arm, let it dry, peel it off and then eat it," his third-grade teacher said.
