Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, December 04, 2018

Donald Trump's top economic adviser said the White House doesn't yet have a deal with China to reduce tariffs on U.S.-made cars, backtracking from a tweet by the president just two days earlier. "I think it's coming, OK," adviser Larry Kudlow said on Fox News Tuesday. "It hasn't been signed and sealed and delivered yet." Trump jolted car stocks by announcing late Sunday that a deal had been reached, following his dinner with Chinese President Xi Jinping on Saturday at the Group of 20 summit in Buenos Aires.

So it looks like something similar to the North Korea summit is occurring. Pres Trump leaves the meeting announcing all manner of wonderful things, and in the following days his aides have to walk back what Pres Trump has announced.

He is a child and is subject to making childish pronouncements.

Exactly, but then the Twitterverse gets all excited/flustered/outraged and runs amok, only to collapse in exhaustion until Donnie Little Hands fires off his next ridiculous tweet.

Kudlow is one of the least qualified people to be an economic adviser.

Wrong, and I bet you wouldn't have said that about him when he was still a Democrat.

Kudlow missed the trade on US car stocks so he wants to rewind and try again once they get something real from China.

What? You mean Trump lied, again? That's insane.

Meanwhile, the market plunges.

"But it's the greatest not final deal in the history of America, believe me!!!"

Kudlow was the second biggest right wing idiot to ever grace the McLaughlin Group. The top spot was always held by Robert Novak, who was so far out in right field as to never get through a single broadcast without the rest of the group bursting into laughter over something he said.
