Prize Headline of the Day

Bess Levin, Trump Eases Back Into Work by Choking the Economy to Death: The president has torpedoed stimulus talks, telling suffering Americans to bother someone else with their so-called problems.

But, All Seriousness Aside …

The talking heads are exhausting themselves today, talking of Orange Man’s crazy tweets on the stimulus issue, and linking it to his illness and his treatment.

But the simplest explanation remains that he is promising to reward America with some economic help if he’s reelected and to punish America with a depression if he loses.

We should take the man at his word.

I do not consider this to be a blindingly perspicacious insight.

I consider it to be obvious.
