Pining for the Fjords?
I know that the thing I should be dinging Larry Kudlow over is his irrational exuberance (he's, um, coming off like he's tripping harder than Santana at Woodstock) regarding the economy on his chat show tour, which is deeply worrisome, because he famously didn't think we were headed for a recession in 2007/8 either, but I think the pretending Trump wanting to buy Greenland isn't totally batshit on Dear Leader's Favorite Channel is just about the damnedest Through-the-Looking-Glass shit I'm arsed to deal with this morning. As with the TV not working when the wind stops blowing and how tariffs work, I feel like people tried to explain the problems with all of this to Trump and he wasn't taking no for an answer, so, welp. Now they're stuck with it.
He's nucking futz, people. But he also seems to be a carrier.
