The irresponsible pronouncements just keep coming. Do they all get their marching orders from the same place? Fear Fear Fear — I guess that’s the Republican platform this year.
Donald Trump said in an interview that economic conditions are so perilous that the country is headed for a “very massive recession” and that “it’s a terrible time right now” to invest in the stock market, embracing a distinctly gloomy view of the economy that counters mainstream economic forecasts.
The New York billionaire dismissed concern that his comments — which are exceedingly unusual, if not unprecedented, for a major party front-runner — could potentially affect financial markets.
“I know the Wall Street people probably better than anybody knows them,” said Trump, who has misfired on such predictions in the past. “I don’t need them.”
“There’s a big company – it hasn’t come out yet,” he said. “I happen to know about it and I’m sworn to secrecy until they make a public announcement. But we’re talking 900 jobs. Nine-hundred jobs in the most prosperous part of our state. Down south, in northern Massachusetts.”
But LePage adds in his own special brand of nastiness too, as you can see with the disparaging label of “northern Massachusetts” applied to what he just referred to as the most prosperous part of our state. I wonder how folks in York and South Portland feel about being ejected out the state of Maine by the sneering governor? Do you think there’s anyone that Governor Giant Baby actually likes? We already know he hates poor people, black people, Democrats, women. I thought he liked wealthy people, but apparently only if they live closer to Augusta.
