What the hell is wrong with Maher!!! Guess as long as as he has money and a job it's ok to have a recession as long as Trump is out.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~

HBO host Bill Maher continued hoping for a recession on his show "Overtime" Friday, saying that the economic fallout would be "worth it" if it prevented President Trump from serving another term in office.

Maher reiterated his desire for a recession that would tank Trump's political prospects before the 2020 election. That prompted business columnist Josh Barro to remind Maher that "recessions are really bad" and that people lost their jobs as a result.


"I know," Maher responded, "but it's worth it." His comments came as Democrats tried to attack the president amid stellar economic metrics.

I am sure a lot of hollywood celebs feel the same way. Of course a recession would never keep food from their table nor a roof over their childs head.

No, people who disagree with Trump don't want a recession to happen just so he will lose the election. But a recession is inevitable at some point, most likely during the next term.

Did you not read the OP's post? Maher clearly stated it would "be worth it". He doesn't care if people suffer, as long as he doesn't have to say "President Trump" anymore. That's a pretty sick mind right there.

I read it. I think what he's saying is that Trump is such a horrible excuse for a human being that even a Recession would be preferable to having him in charge. Is that sick? Mmm, it's an opinion, nothing more.

I don't want it to happen, I'm just gonna laugh about it. It isn't funny but I've been told to eat crow because we were told that the economy is great when it isn't, the tax cuts would help business when it hasn't, unemployment is down even if the LFPR is roughly the same as it was under Obama, the tariffs won't affect us but too many business owners say otherwise, and those that said we were heading for a crash while Obama was in the White House have been mum under Trump.
