Washington Post White House Bureau Chief Philip Rucker, New York Times Senior Economics Correspondent Neil Irwin and Congressman Mikie Sherrill join Stephanie Ruhle to explain why having a message isn’t the same as having a plan.

      snakecharmer2011 typical fool response

    • snakecharmer2011. Ok tell me which democrat presidential candidate has better policies. Free Medicare for all then they charge you 60% of your income in taxes. Wait time in Canada to see a doctor is 19 weeks. Do you really think they won’t ration healthcare? Free Medicare for illegals, open borders, free college. Do you really think any of those promises will come true? Every democrat run city is littered with gun violence yet you believe they can fix mass shootings. Every democrat inner city is littered with the homeless yet you think they can solve inequality. You call trump supporters stupid and uneducated yet your party is feeding you bs and you stand there eating it all up. I guess that makes you either intellectually dishonest or a gullible fool.

    • keiferd11: projection? Your party demands you follow every word they say or you’re ousted.

    • @Scott J Every Democrat has better policies than Trump, he doesn’t have any. Don’t spread BS about free medicare for all when you have no understanding. Just where did you get that 60% number from, did Donnie Do Nothing tell you? As for medicare for illegals, this is only a wishlist item, not a policy, someone says “imagine one day we can give medicare to everyone” and you take it literally it’s going to happen tomorrow. And I’d far prefer to wait 19 weeks to see a Doctor, this would be a specialist Doctor or a Surgeon, than not being able to afford to see one at all, or to be able to afford the massive drug prices.

      Free college is one candidate’s promise, the others are all saying reducing costs to make it available to a much wider portion of the community.

      You talk about littered gun violence in Democrat-run cities yet you fail to understand that they are some of the places with the lowest deaths per 100k in the country. Of course, you’re going to see more gun violence, the population is far denser in cities, but if you look at the per capita rates the best states are California, New Jersey, Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, and Hawaii all of which have the strictest gun laws.

      Homelessness is another problem exacerbated by population density, more population typically means more homelessness, most Democrats live in cities so they are typically Democrat elected states. To say it is their fault is naive, there are many different reasons for homelessness, from bankruptcy to drug use to family violence. Every community suffers this, so it is everyone’s problem.

      We call Trump supporters stupid because they can’t see what is going on under their noses, or refuse to acknowledge what’s going on. What you think is BS is mostly fact and plain for the majority of the country to see. Just because you have a paranoia with authorities and facts doesn’t make them BS. Just look at all the conspiracies out there which are fed to the Trump supporters by none other than Trump himself. But you seem to want to believe these conspiracies that have nothing to back them up other than a few whackjobs wearing tinfoil hats.

  4. Trump, ” I don’t think I had 6 bankruptcies, but I did”

  5. And since when t f did Donald start listening?

  6. The parallel universe Trump lives never will take responsibility for any of his many screw-ups, yet he’s happy to take credit for someone else’s successes. 🙄..🤪

      @David M did you learn your debating skills at Trump University? You know the scam against American working-class taxpayers out of their life savings to benefit Donald Trump

    • @nunya business Where you get that from? Msnbcaninnibal network?

    • nunya business | August 19, 2019 at 9:11 PM | Reply

      @David M did you drop out of trump University before they taught that lesson on Research? I’m only kidding cuz that was a scam against American working-class Tax paying citizens to steal their life savings perpetrated by Donald Trump traitor against America with the aid of Russia

    • nunya business | August 19, 2019 at 9:15 PM | Reply

      @David M no I got it from the court documents

    • nunya business | August 19, 2019 at 9:16 PM | Reply

      @David M everything that’s done in court is public record

  7. Larry Kudlow is not a real economist. He dose not have his masters. He only plays an economist on TV

  8. My! Why! Trump’s conspiration theory (that economists are against him) shows he is paranoic and need to be removed. If a governor is not able to trust science and economy specialists (eventually playing one against another to see pro et contra) then he may be psychotic, really scary.

    We have seen it throughout history. Philip Rucker tells us what is going on now.

  9. From “no obstruction, no collusion” to “complete confusion in the weird illusion”.

    The president looks at data🤣🤣🤣🤣hahahaha

  11. Oh yeah, the Wallmart numbers are through the roof… he must be talking about bullets… literally! 🙄😒😞

  12. Walmart numbers …..= prepper purchases?? People are getting ready for the recession.
    By comparison, Macy’s don”t sell any prepper stuff = numbers in the toilet.

  13. A recession is not a crisis.
    The president is one,
    You can fix a recession.
    You can’t fix stupid.

    The Globetrotters rocked please don’t compare them to this administration

  15. They’re going to stick with denying everything bad. Narcissists can’t and won’t accept their own failures and faults and they’re exceedingly capable at charming the gullible and ignorant into believing their brand of BS.

    This is hilarious- he doesn’t see a recession, yet he is taking steps to cope with it

  17. Hildebeast Clinton | August 19, 2019 at 9:27 PM | Reply

    Biden had difficulty pronouncing the word “e-con-o-mee” and fell asleep to dreams of chasing lost children through a park.

  18. Gosh. The Globe Trotters were skillfull. Trump has a high school B level team.

  19. Trumps only concern is ratings. He loves debt and relies on bankruptcy. He said guess what, the economy crashes and I’m going to give back half the debt.

  20. Of course it’s downplayed, Tiny Balls only has ten fingers so he can’t count beyond that.
