But with that said, it's still been a bit of a shrug fest because Trump hasn't really fucked with our economy until now.
Look,Republicans have been happy to yield the stage to this buffoon if it meant they could cram through partisan Judges and enact shitty pieces of legislation without much scrutiny.
However, Trump's lining up to seriously fuck up our economy just in time for the 2018 midterms.
If you're a republican in Congress or the House, behind closed doors they have to be having a fit.
Blowing up our trade relationships with Canada is just plain stupid. This will have instant ramifications. Canada is a HUGE trading partner with us, one that we have very equitable trading relationships with. This fully demonstrates how stupid Trump is.
Farmers in the midwest (many of whom voted for Trump) are likely (albeit quietly) going on into the barn and cussing up a storm as they realize the guy they helped put in the White House apparently has little understanding of how markets work. They're going to find themselves shut out of all the international markets, with a glut of product driving the price per unit towards zero... combined with rising fuel and labor costs. Compounded shitshow seems like a good term.
This all culminates with the final question: "When will Republicans cut bait on Trump?"
It's clear they don't give a flying fuck about his impropriety, immorality or dishonesty.
They do however seriously give a fuck about the economy. How many town hall meetings will they need to flee from before they sit down and say "We need an exit plan."
I just hope that time comes before our economy is in a tailspin.
