A "Terrified" Paul Krugman Wakes Each Morning in a "State of Existential Dread"

New York Times Keynesian economics columnist Paul Krugman has been having a hard time ever since Donald J. Trump was elected President in November 2016. 

However, the "conscience of liberalism" told Twitter today that he is "terrified" and suffering from a “state of existential dread.”  

Primarily because, as Krugman puts forth in a bizarre theory, Trump "enjoys seeing others hurt." 

Krugman believes the 45th President may soon be impeached or removed from office by the 25th amendment. Because of that, the President has nothing left to lose. 

"He can't save his presidency. He can, however, still hurt a lot of people. And he surely wants to," Krugman told Twitter.

Everything Krugman says here should be taken with a grain of salt. The man has been historically wrong about Trump's presidency since the night of his election. 

Krugman predicted economic ruin with no end in sight under the new president. Specifically, he said that the markets would “never recover” thanks to Trump.

 “It really does now look like President Donald J. Trump, and markets are plunging. When might we expect them to recover? If the question is when markets will recover, a first-pass answer is never.

“We are very probably looking at a global recession, with no end in sight. I suppose we could get lucky somehow. But on economics, as on everything else, a terrible thing has just happened.”

This, of course, has proven to be false.

Last week on TownHall.com, Wayne Allyn Root discussed in detail why the economy was "Trump Strong."  

The DOW has risen almost 25% since Election Day. That’s an increase of over 4,300 points in about 11 months. That’s the biggest increase in that period of time in the history of the stock market. The S&P 500 has passed $20 trillion in value for the first time in history."

Root goes onto highlight the explosion of jobs created under President Trump as well. 

"President Trump added 1.33 million jobs from January through September versus Obama’s record of losing 4.59 million jobs in that same first nine months. Remarkable.

But the latest jobs report just came out on Friday. According to the Bureau of Labor Household Survey, the number of employed Americans increased by an amazing 906,000 for the month of September. But that’s not even the highlight.

Remember that almost every single job created in eight years under Obama was a crappy, low-wage, part-time job. Well under President Trump last month, full-time jobs (the kind we all want and need) increased by 935,000- the most in one month in the 21stcentury.

It was also one of the four highest increases in American history.

Krugman's tweets might indicate that he is manically depressed or suffering from a mental disorder. A couple weeks ago he hallucinated cholera in Puerto Rico

Thoughts and prayers for Paul.
