Is the Trump Boom actually a thing?
Or is it just fake news?
It turns out that the Trump boom is not all it seems. The real credit for the recent expansion is due to a previous President.
Our confidential anonymous source from the intelligence community tells us:
It’s incredibly dishonest for Trump to claim credit for a boom which has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with him.
If you look at Al Gore’s famous hockey stick graph here (9.0!), you can clearly see that the boom at issue (factoring out all unnecessarily entangling detours and ‘noise,’) actually began in 1901, around the time Theodore Roosevelt became President.
It is absolutely disgusting that Donald Trump would ever dare to put his misleading Reaganite ‘voodoo economics’ on us, when the chart states categorically, without the slightest shadow of a doubt, that the American economy has grown enormously since, well about 116 years ago.
Precisely who are all these backward, ignorant deplorables trying to fool?
A suitably outraged and juvenile Trump has petulantly tweet-shrieked in response:
Trump economy absoloote TREMENDOUS!!!! No respex from Roosevelt Dynasty. Lock him up! My economy is tremendous. FAKE NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!
