Leftists haven’t learned any lessons during the Era of Trump. They want him to fail badly. Because Trump’s success showcases their failures.
Leftists are the clowns who believed in Obama. Their version of Jesus, aka Baby Black Jesus. And their god failed them.
Trump took Obama’s anemic economy, an economy propped up with $10 trillion of “quantitative easing” (QE). That term is a euphemism for “affirmative action funding” under America’s first black president. Without QE, Obama would have been waterboarded by Americans.
With QE, he put a band-aid on a bullet hole. Lucky for him, Trump fixed his failed economy with an economic boom.
Trump eliminated the onerous red tape for businesses, and released $2 trillion back into the economy annually. Then, Trump cut taxes. So much so that businesses flourished, as did employees. Recall that many employees got raises beyond minimum wage, as well as bonuses. And Trump was only getting started.
He renegotiated asinine trade deals, and started budget cutting. All these moves caused the stock market to soar. Democrats quickly recognized that they couldn’t kill Trump’s economy, even as they pursued him with Russian collusion, and Ukrainian intimidation, which ultimately led to their failed impeachment.
Then came the dreaded Chinese WuFlu.
Democrats took their cue and decided to torpedo the robust Trump economy. And it might have worked, if it hadn’t been for that meddling Trump.
Trump played their game. He took the stimulus money knowing what would come in the future. Democrats celebrated the massive job losses, but Trump just waited. He let Democrats milk the WuFlu for all its worth.
Then the people revolted. Because they wanted back to work. The truth leaked out about the ruse, and now Trump sprang the trap. Back to work.
In May, 2.5 million jobs created, the most in history. That jobs report shocked the hell out of all the so-called experts. But Trump wasn’t done. He would spring another trap in June.
Rachel Maddow thought May was a fluke. At least she hoped it was.
Here’s what the MSNBC incorrectly predicted at the end of her Wednesday night show:
“We’re actually gonna get the job numbers, the unemployment figures for the month of June a day earlier than we would otherwise expect them,” Maddow said to conclude Wednesday night’s “The Rachel Maddow Show.”
“So, we would usually get those on a Friday,” she continued. “They’re going to come out tomorrow. That’ll tell us unemployment figures for June. Brace yourself. It’s going to be absolutely terrible.”
Ouch. Reminds me of Maddow’s show when she got Trump’s taxes. I wrote at the time:
Maddow spent most of her day setting the narrative for the story. And then Maddow found out why Trump is the ringmaster.
In a move that would make P. T. Barnum smile, President Trump scooped Maddow, releasing his taxes beforehand.

The Fun Begins as Maddow Unravels
Scoop notwithstanding, the real fallout had only begun.
As it turns out, despite the ability to not pay taxes due to earlier losses, Donald Trump in 2005 had paid taxes. A lot of taxes. $38 MILLION in taxes.
Allow me to spare you the details, except to say that Maddow spent almost the entire show stalling. She’d been scooped, AND her narrative was blown.
If only there had been a way to tie Trump to RUSSIA!
Ironically, Maddow didn’t even acknowledge that Trump paid $38 million in taxes. Nor did she explain that he could have avoided the tax burden due to his $916 million loss in 1995, an exemption he could use for up to 18 years.
As Britney Spears might say, “Oops, he did it again!”.
Maddow got crushed a second time. Maybe in Trump’s second term she will learn her lesson?
