   For the short term memory folks:   unlimited debt limit for 2 years.   :-(    https://www.politico.com/story/2018/02/07/government-shutdown-senate-budget-deal-395984

 

   Donald did his usual whine and then gleefully  signed the legislation that taxpayers won't realize how dangerous it is for the country.    His printing cash, isn't that why he wanted to have a coup against VZ president.   

 

    Are his supporters really that stupid?   just asking

The scary aspect is Trump probably believes he could solve the deficit by printing 21 Trillion Dollar bills.


The terrifying aspect is that lil donny COULD have the Treasury print a single $21 Trillion bill with his toadlike image on it, deposit it with the Federal Reserve, and poof, no more National Debt showing on the ledgers.

 

,..however, the people still holding the treasuries that represent the current $21 Trillion debt will still need to be paid as their bonds come due, but we wouldn't need to formally raise the debt ceiling until another couple Republcian budgets added 21 Trillion back to the debt.

 

For that reason (they can't pretend to be doing something by refusing to raise the debt ceiling) no Republican will support lil donny's imaginary solution.

This illustrates that Trump is an Economic imbecile.  But that doesn't bother his blind, loyal supporters.

You're correct. Trump tapped into an existing ignorant collective group that believes in all of the conspiracy theories. They believe in the "ponzi scheme" theory and many others. Trump even used the "deep state term" that is used here. Trump gained support of fringe groups by design, it was no accident, many of those groups were abstractly attached to the Tea Party. He used references to conspiracies and dog whistle white supremacist code words to gain the support of racist groups and they also show up at the polls. November will tell a story about America's electorate, I hope it's not a bad one.

Republicans love Trump because, thanks to him, they can say without fear of contradiction "My kid is smarter than the President of the United States!" and the kid doesn't even have to have completed 5th grade.
