Larry Kudlow knows as much about the respiratory system as he does about the economic system, which is to say jak schitt. Kudlow stood in the driveway of the White House this morning and, we guess, wanted to make a statement about the importance of mask wearing since Donald Trump said it was patriotic. Or something.

The vengeance of Twitter was swift and sure.

Now this article is tagged to Larry Kudlow on Twitter. As a public service, we are providing Kudlow this tutorial, free of charge, just in case the image given in the tweet above didn’t sink in. Kudlow clearly has problems with the simplest of concepts.

There, Larry, do you have it now? Or do you need Max or Murf to come over to the house and show you? This is epic stupidity, but it is routine Kudlow. Just yesterday a couple of economists were on CNN saying that Kudlow has been dead wrong about everything the past six months. Raw Story:

In an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper on Sunday, Larry Kudlow claimed that Americans are doing great and the country is in a “V-shaped recovery.” The economists called it absurd.

Kudlow is a clown,” said the University of Michigan economics and public policy professor, Justin Wolfers. “He hasn’t gotten a single thing right in at least six months. He told us this wouldn’t hurt. It has. He told us we would bounce back to work. We’re not. He just said — and patently misrepresented economists in saying that economists think we’re on a path of a self-sustaining economy.’ There’s a shutdown, you lift the shutdown, and automatically part of that reverses. The big economic question is, at the end of that, how much damage have you done? The longer it draws out, the more damage we do. With the resurgence of the bug, it’s drawing out how long the the economy is remaining in hibernation. And as a result, we’re seeing an increasing number of firms not survive that hibernation. So, we are going to bounce back somewhat, but not back to where we were. And the longer it takes, the more pain it will exact and the worse the longer-run recession is going to be.”

I have tried to decide which is the bigger idiot, Kudlow or Peter Navarro and I can’t decide. I mean, that is some choice, between those two mental amoebas. I doubt if they can do arithmetic, how did they end up in economics? One of them would be remarkable in any administration, but both? And they’ve got plenty of company, starting with the poster children of incompetence, Jared and Ivanka. But beyond that, what I cannot figure out, is HOW do these people get these kinds of jobs? I am beginning to think that American universities should give degrees in nepotism and cronyism, because those are the fields one needs to be successful in, to be successful in modern America. That much is crystal clear.

This is why they’re belly laughing in Beijing and howling in Havana. We are the laughing stock of the world. It’s a shame we don’t have interplanetary travel. I’m so ashamed to be an American right now, I’d rather go live on Jupiter.

  1. Wow. This is our government. Unreal how stupid these people are. He’s right up there with DuhSantis. Can’t wait until Jan 20 th.

  2. It was purposeful. The Trump admin. sees masks as silencing them, and their faith. So, he wore it over his mouth only. I agree, Kudlow is well known as being the worst economist in the world. He’s always wrong. Navarro is a different story, again, not smart, but he also lies constantly. He’s putting out a corporate reasoning, crafted by billionaires. And he yells when he lies, like that adds a sense of veracity.
