From The Blaze:
On Nov. 9, 2016, the New York Times’ Paul Krugman, perhaps the left’s most influential writer on economics and health care, despairingly announced to the world just one day after the presidential election that a global recession would likely soon descend upon the world as a result of Donald Trump’s victory.
“So we are very probably looking at a global recession, with no end in sight,” Krugman wrote. “I suppose we could get lucky somehow. But on economics, as on everything else, a terrible thing [Trump’s election win] has just happened.”
That may go down as one of the worst economic predictions of all time. Since Donald Trump and Republicans seized control of Washington, D.C., the economy has been, by virtually any reasonable measurement, improving dramatically.
For quite some time, Krugman, Democrats and left-wing pundits ignored the clear signs showing improvement. After all, how could anything good result from the conservative policies instituted by President Trump and the Republican-led Congress? But after a while, even the Paul Krugmans of the world realized they had to face reality — well, at least their version of it.
The left is no longer pretending America isn’t experiencing remarkable economic growth. Instead, they are shifting the narrative about who is responsible for it. Despite overwhelming evidence showing the rate of improvement for most economic indicators increased shortly after Trump’s election victory, liberals everywhere are insisting it’s Barack Obama who deserves all the credit — not Republicans, not President Trump, and certainly not the men and women who actually produce jobs, services, and products in the marketplace.
