The media isnít spinning this. The media is reporting this. Trump and republicans will have no one to blame but themselves for the consequences of their actions.

Who is "someone" and exactly what could they do to accomplish that?

This is all on Trump, and Trump alone.

"They?"

Once again ... the media and liberals are not the ones creating conditions for a potential upcoming recession. Market forces are. The media is just reporting what is going on with those market forces.

I'm not sure why some people cannot understand that.

Americans are taking the hit.....the spread on Trump is growing by the minute over at 538 - and the polling doesn't yet reflect the growing realization that the loose cannon is destroying our savings......
Disapprove higher since the shutdown.

Yeah, it takes real stones to act as if forces other than Trump chaos, tweets and bad decisions are at play.

The problem is the crash is all going to blamed on Trump even though this has been in the making for decades. Trump is the perfect scapegoat because he brags about the markets and the "greatest economy ever" on a daily basis. The establishment will blame the crash on Trump, conservatism (even though Trump is not a fiscal conservative), and anti-establishment candidates. It is a dream narrative for the powers to be.

As I have said all along, the real issue is what comes AFTER Trump......

Like I said in mid-July.......

I really appreciate you trying but they won't listen to logic or sensibility.

They are just mad about something even they don't understand. If everything works fine then it is their leader who should get credit for it but anything goes wrong ... blame the media and Democrats!

What's weird is they think they are being patriotic by acting this way. All they're doing is making a fool of themselves, our President's office and our country.
