The elitist left is wishing for a recession before the next election. Stephanie Ruhle declares it “about time we get a recession.”
Many MSM talking heads have been excited about the prospect of a recession as Donald Trump is facing re-election in 2020.
MSNBC commentator Stephanie Ruhle defended recessions, declaring them “a normal part of economic activity.”
“A recession is OK. A recession is a normal part of economic activity. We see them upturns and downturn. A recession doesn’t mean it’s a crisis, but if you’re a sitting president, you don’t necessarily want a recession on your watch. You want people feeling good. But seeing that we have been in economic expansion for the better part of 10 years, it’s about time we get a recession. But the fact that the Fed has already cut rates to try to extend this economic expansion, you think that would breathe more life into it.”
Ruhle continued, “[J]ust remember: One of the reasons the economy has extended in positive growth for this long is the massive corporate tax cut that the president gave us a year and a half ago. He said that would result in GDP boom in business investment, three, four, five percent growth. We’re at 2.1%. That’s the average.”
“So when the president says this is the best economy ever, it’s not. And if we did face a recession, it would be normal and it would be OK,” she concluded.
Twitter chimed in:
The left is praying for Americans to suffer just so they can say, I told you so. Why does the left hate America so much?

This all based on nothing, yet they get away with it.

Recessions are all fun and games until it is “You” that loses her job…

The Democrats and their proxies in the #MSM have thrown everything but the kitchen sink at President Trump and all have failed miserably. We now have propagandists like @SRuhle embarrassing themselves because this is all they have left. The #ItMayHappenApproach #Trump2020

@msnbc hopes for the country to enter into a recession which only hurts the country AND its people. Why? All because their candidate lost in 2016! Once again, the opposition party media are the enemy to the American people. #MSLSD is a #shithole
