Trump just accused the media of trying to tank the economy in delusional tweet

As economists sound the alarm about the U.S. economy and fears of recession grow, the President is growing more and more desperate in his efforts to shift the blame from where it belongs — squarely on his shoulders.


The vast majority of people who know what they’re talking about point to Trump’s reckless trade wars with China as the culprit for the financial instability (on top of forcing the government to waste billions of dollars propping up the farming industry).

The president has greatly enjoyed taking credit for the superficially healthy economy he inherited from President Obama but is now in a panic now that he’s gone and ruined it, just like he has ruined every business he’s ever owned.

Scrambling for excuses, the president decided to lay the blame on the “Fake News Media” this morning in a truly galaxy-brain take that quickly had social media in an uproar.

Journalists met his outburst with uncomfortable amusement and no small amount of confusion.


The ridiculousness of the claim is making many wonder if things aren’t actually far worse than the news is letting on. It’s just another example of how our cowardly president will never, ever, ever, take responsibility for any of the many, many, many mistakes he has made over the past few years and will always point the finger at someone else when it comes time to pay the piper.
