This is conveniently forgotten by Trumpkins.

This.
I only buy crap when I need it and/or it adds something to my life.

so yes, a rich consumer loaded up with cash


I've been spending a lot of money lately, but I've also been saving money.

My income is steady and reliable, and more than I need to live on, so, no complaints.

Trump 2020!

But you were doing way better under Obama, right?

It's odd that you seem to have so much trouble getting and keeping a job. Aren't you in STEM? Something else is going on here...

"Are you a rich consumer loaded up with money?"

No, and if you follow the spending habits of the average American consumer, neither will you.

I think rich people believe there are more of them than there actually is. I feel like everyone around me is in Healthcare professionally because they are and that is also my profession. You attract like minds, rich only seems to hang around with rich.

I'm talking actual rich here not upper middle with a fancy car.

Thatís why I have money.
Did you set that trust fund up for yourself?

He's projecting, of course. That's what he does best.
