The economy is doing amazingly, despite all those Democratic economists who predicted that we are doomed if Trump is elected. On the View, Meghan McCain decided to take a moment to rub that in the face of Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg and the other panelists.
“One thing I will say about Larry Kudlow though, is most economists get a lot wrong–very few economists saw the 2008 crash coming. Paul Krugman who’s considered, you know he’s a very liberal economist, said that the markets will plunge and never recover,” said McCain.
“He predicted a global recession with no end in sight following Hillary Clinton’s loss. David K. Johnson said Trump-onomics would be a disaster for workers, you know, and that only Hillary could be the economic savior,” mocked McCain.
“So, I don’t trust economists like as a generality– and I think that Larry Kudlow is on television but when I did more research into him, he did work for Ronald Reagan. He is someone that is well respected,” explained McCain.
“My understanding was he was going to have a political career, but he had a very serious cocaine habit that he’s very open about in the 90s, that sort of derailed where he was going and he went into media instead. I think there are much worse options. He’s much more conservative than Gary Cohn who he’s replacing,” said McCain. Check out the video below.
