Every time I see the latest economic news, I thank Hillary Clinton.

Every time I see those high GDP numbers (up 3.2 percent last quarter), I thank Hillary.

Every time I see those record low unemployment numbers for blacks, Latinos and women, I thank Hillary.

If she hadn't been such a horrible candidate in 2016, there's no telling what sorry state America would be in right now.

So thank you, Hillary, for being such a loser.

You did your country a greater service than you'll ever know.

I don't really blame Hillary too much for refusing to accept her embarrassing defeat and deciding to spend the rest of her public life posing as a professional victim of a conspiracy that never happened.

In the pretend world where she lives, the Trump-hating Democrats running the House of Representatives and the Trump-hating Democrats running the mainstream liberal media want to re-investigate the Russian collusion delusion from scratch.

They're still deluding themselves about bringing down Trump and they know it. They know that even if the House impeaches Trump, the Senate won't impeach him in a million years.

In other words, the Democrats know their multiple hearings are nothing but partisan TV stunts designed to constantly smear Trump and his family and discredit Attorney General William Barr before he digs up the dirt about the FBI's rogue spying operation on the 2016 Trump campaign.

The good thing is, you don't have to bother watching the House's hearings live or pay attention to how the committees vote.

Everyone already knows exactly what the final scores are going to be - straight party-line votes in favor of the majority Democrats' efforts to impeach, probe or immediately hang the president.

Meanwhile, the liberal media never get around to asking the Democrats in the House why they aren't busy writing new legislation to reform health care or fund infrastructure repair.

Come on, Nancy.

It's time to send your new legislation over to the Senate so it can be sent over to be signed by the president. Where is it?

While the liberal media keeps busy finding new ways to hate Trump, a hundred Democratic presidential wannabes who hope to go on their party's suicide mission in 2020 are wandering around Iowa, hating on Trump, doing bad impersonations of socialists and making wilder and wilder promises they can't keep.

"Medicare for all," free college for all, "free" federal money for all deposited in a bank account every year just for being born a future Democrat.

Wouldn't it be nice if a journalist at CNN, MSNBC, CBS or the New York Times seriously challenged one of these irresponsible promise-makers?

Instead of the usual softball question, what if Wolf Blitzer threw a surprise fastball at the head of Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren?

What if he asked them something complicated like, "What do you think about passing legislation to end the monopoly protections given in each state to healthcare companies and allowing the companies to sell insurance across state lines?"

"I think it's called 'competition,' " Wolf could say. "It allows consumers to shop around for the best deal for themselves and their families. It's worked pretty well with cars, TVs and vegetables. Do you think it might work with health care?"

Don't worry.

No one in the mainstream media will ever dare to ask that kind of question to a Democrat.

They're only asked questions that can be answered with "I really really hate Trump."

Let's face it.

We're going to have this kind of anti-Trump insanity in America for the next 18 months.

The deranged mainstream media - electronic and what's left of print - is never going to go back to presenting what we used to call "The news."

So in order to not go crazy yourself, I suggest that you follow my favorite advice.

Turn off the TV for the weekend - at least.

Listen to a lot of loud country music - real loud.

And remember to honor your mother.
