Trig Palin / Kirk Cameron 2024. This would honestly not surprise me

Fine. You're confirming what everyone on Earth knows.
Next?

Lipstick they don't mind so much. But mascara? Whole big thing.

Until the numbers are what they were before the lockdown, there won't be an actual "good jobs report", because right now we're working in deficit.

That, and jobs are bad for the economy when there is an airborne killer virus.

I don't like him, but I will admit I'd take such a pic and take pride in the first run of bills under my watch.

Traffic problems on Friday were almost back to normal around Dallas. That's a clearer signal than jobs reports.

Best jobs report ever. A person said to me "my God, look what you've done. Nobody has ever done such a fantastic job". Nobody has ever seen anything like this. They are amazed. Economists called me up and they all said "I am amazed" because I know so much more than them. No other president has ever accomplished anything like this.

Yes, I just made the above up, but if I were to send it to Trump, he would claim every bit of it as true.

Did you make it all up?

I will believe that not all those things were said all at one time, but I'm sure he has uttered every line separately at one time or another.

The economists would call him sir, and they'd be crying.

I've heard labor economists would call you and say they had to re-write entire textbooks because the theory couldn't hold up. They really would!
