Why the hell is Larry even talking, he's not a Dr. or medical professional and his track record on this subject is negative 2 trillion?  There's no reason other than Trump is a jackass, that things are the way they are now, with numbers skyrocketing.

This part is the focus... and it would help more if you watched Barry and Larry go at each other for months during 2008 about the recession. Larry refused to even say the word.

Back on July 15, I suggested it was time to cover shorts for a Bear market rally, reiterating an earlier - too early - call for a move higher. But this ? LK admitting a recession ? This was big news. Larry is a perennial optimist, so its worth noting when he sees anything negative. In February, he broached the  mere possibility of a mild recession, and last week, he saw (finally!) that a recession is here. I turned to one of my fellow fisherman/economists in Maine, and said "Larry used the R word? The negativity out there must really be tremendous. That means we are due for a counter-trend rally."

The bold part means that those who know him best know that is he is literally WRONG all of the time. So wrong that they are willing to be tens of millions of dollars against whatever he says, and they did profit from it.

There were some rallies to profit from (just like today) until the market eventually died by 50%.

Larry is the most consistently wrong mofo in the history of the planet.

New York provided an expensive, in terms of human lives, example of what not to do followed by what to do.

And the red parts of America just looked at them and thought New York. We aren't New York. We don't need none of that.

I'm 36. Its a crazy thought, but in my lifetime I expect to see states leave the Union.

That reminds me of sports books who changed the odds whenever Matt Millen made a prediction on TV. Everyone knew it was easy money to bet against him.

Kudlow needs to get COVID, and then just get over it, or at least learn to live with it or if that's too hard for him, die from it.

it took those states about 60 days *under strict lockdown*  to drop 1 order of magnitude in new daily per capita confirmed infections once they peaked at about 1 per 1000 .  All these idiot red states are nearing or hitting that metric  with no lockdowns in place.  there is no turning back for Arizona, things will be getting *a lot* worse.

Kudlow's not wrong:  we do have to live with it.

And, when the Administration makes its next f&ck up, we'll have to live with that, too.

*Caveat of course, as we have known, and the CDC just confirmed yesterday, the infection rate is really 10x what the confirmed infection cases show; those peaks were really at 1 per 100  *

That's an interesting point. I do love how we weaponize fear with the idea of someone that's 22 going to meet other 22 year olds and that they're ALL just automatically dead because they don't have a mask.
