    As have I, but the Democrats' clown hats now have a neon hammer-and-sickle motif, and such nonsense will simply not be permitted.

    The Mueller investigation turned up heavy Russian interference in the 2016 election, along with at least 4 counts of obstruction by Trump into that investigation. Several people have been indicted, arrested, and jailed. Some hoax!

    The Ukraine investigation has turned up evidence Trump attempted to collude with the Ukraine to rig the 2020 election.


    Trump must have felt that since he was "exonerated" from colluding with Russia that he could get away with actually colluding with Ukraine.

    That takes a special kind of idiot.

    This is how the Ukraine fantasy played out in Trump's head:

    TRUMP: I want you to do us a favor and announce to the world you are investigating Joe Biden. If you want to visit me in the White House to show the world the US is behind you, I want you to announce you are investigating Biden. I don't care if you actually do investigate him. Just announce you are.

    ZELENSKY: Okay...I guess so.


    Not long after:

    ZELENSKY: We are opening an investigation into Burisma and Joe Biden

    The day after, on the White House lawn:

    TRUMP: The Ukraine is investigating Biden! Why would they do that if he had not done something wrong! Are you taking notes? Zelensky said he is investigatiing Biden! He said that!



    That's how all of Trump's cons works.

    This one blew up in his face because he got caught and was outed by the whistleblower before Trump got to bring his con to fruition.

    That's pretty funny seeing as how Putin helped Trump get elected, and Trump has publicly fellated Putin.

    The whole Ukraine hoax was invented by Putin and Trump fell for it hook, line, and sinker.

    You can't compare the Obama growth rate of coming out of the "great recession" with normal economic growth. Obama had $800b of TARP stimulus, zero interest rates, plus $4T of the Fed's balance sheet to help get over the financial crisis. Trump has the Fed shrinking its balance sheet and the economy is still doing well. Comparing apples to apples Trump's economy is

    Even with that much stimulus you can see below that the Obama economy stalled out the last 2-years, then Trump got it moving again.

    Mueller and his high price lawyers spent two years trying to nail Trump. You in your mom’s basement in your pajamas did not break the case.

    There's more than one way to skin a cat and cheat the economy.

    As I've explained many times, Trump artificially juiced the GDP growth by spending record amounts. Far more than Obama ever did.

    GDP = C + I + G + (X – M)

    or

    GDP = private consumption + gross investment + government investment + government spending + (exports – imports).


    There's the secret sauce of your huckster messiah. Trump spends other people's money in order to artificially juice the GDP figure.

    Not just other people's money, he spends the money of the unborn, too.

    He inherited a declining deficit, and immediately set to work doubling it with the GOP congress.
