Listening to Larry Kudlow speak on #CNNSOTU is like listening to Elmer Fudd speak when he's on acid. @realDonaldTrump
Larry Kudlow is throwing out some crazy, unchecked math now - "$800 total...at a minimum, we will put in $300, and the states will continue with their $400. But I think all they have to do is put up an extra dollar, and we'll be able to throw in the extra $100."
HE IS DRUNK.
BASH: "You keep saying $1,200 per person... Where does that number come from?"
KUDLOW: "I beg your pardon. The $1,200 will come from the payroll tax deferral... It should be $800 for the unemployment."
BASH: "$800 or $400?"
KUDLOW: "No, it should be $400 -- it should be $800."
LARRY KUDLOW: The president felt he had to take action on an eviction moratorium.
STEPHANOPOULOS: But his executive order doesn't actually include an eviction moratorium.
KUDLOW: ... look, that's not entirely true.
STEPHANOPOULOS: It is true. I just read it.
You'd be hard pressed to put together a more evil assemblage of characters than the trump admin if you were casting for James Bond movies:
EVICT THEM ALL NOV 3RD.
STEPHANOPOULOS: “In fact, the president doesn’t extend the federal eviction moratorium. I looked at the executive order. It doesn’t do that.” …
KUDLOW: “Well, look, that’s not entirely true.”
STEPHANOPOULOS: “It is true. I just read it.”
BASH: Last week you said you can't extend unemployment benefits administratively, that it requires an act of Congress. Do you think Trump's move is legal?
LARRY KUDLOW: "I probably spoke out of turn there ... I probably shouldn't have said that."
Jonathan Swan and Chris Wallace BOTH demonstrated exactly how to interview lying liars who lie: PREPARATION.
There is NO excuse for these news shows to let lying liars like Peter Navarro and Larry Kudlow trample the truth without being checked.
The stakes are TOO DAMN HIGH.
LARRY KUDLOW: Americans will get $400, as I said, they will get $800, so to review they are getting $1200.
Larry Kudlow suggests Trump didn’t know how many of the states will be able to pay $100 for the jobless benefits Trump is moving ahead with. “We will probably find that out today and tomorrow,” Kudlow says to @DanaBashCNN
If it's Sunday, Chuck Todd still sucks.
PS: Democrats passed a bill in *May*, Chuck.
Fact-checking Larry Kudlow is not being biased.
It's called journalism. https://t.co/t8CO61lubg
BASH: "How many of the 50 states and DC and other territories say that they are going to be able to pony up $100 a week per unemployed citizen?"
KUDLOW: "Yes, good question. We will probably find that out today and tomorrow."
BASH: "So, you don't know? You don't know yet?"
Larry Kudlow just told Dana Bash that they unemployment benefit would be $800 a week.....um, wasn't it $400 a week yesterday. Larry is a completely incompetent jackass who needs to lay the fuck off the liquor and STFU! #CNNSOTU
Dana Bash held Larry Kudlow feet to the fire and tore apart all of Trump’s fake Executive Orders. She is fantastic
My bad I said Larry Kudlow was released from Bear & Stern for Cocaine & alcohol abuse. It’s Peter Navarro who was. I confuse the two!
MORE MATH WARNING. Payroll tax cut.
WH's Kudlow says it will be worth $1200 per worker.
He does not note that is over four months.
And does not note that, as it stands (w/out Congress acting), all of those workers likely will owe that money back later.
Q: "These funds go into and help pay for Social Security and Medicare. The president promised many times not to gut Social Security and Medicare so isn't that exactly what he's going to be doing here?"
Kudlow: "No -- he will protect Social Security and Medicare."
WATCH: Larry Kudlow appeared extremely confused by the executive actions President Donald Trump signed over the weekend to extend unemployment benefits https://t.co/OcfDYRwQhD
Q: What do Larry Kudlow & a newborn elephant have in common?
A: They both look like this:👇
For the baby elephant, it's trying to walk for the first time.
For Larry, it's trying to walk to the kitchen to pour more Scotch.
Oh - and the elephant isn't wrong about everything. https://t.co/OjTkTWO71k
Trump is no Executive Hero‼️
I watched & replayed & watched & replayed, thru this entire exchange.
Kudlow compounds the phrase FUZZY MATH to a degree heretofore unheard of.
And nothing but WORD SALAD on evictions/payroll tax.
TRUMP AND HIS CRONIES HAVE UNDERTAKEN A MAJOR LYING CAMPAIGN.
DON'T TRUST A WORD OF WHAT THEY SAY.
THEY ARE DESPICABLE AND DISGUSTING!
I saw that interview and Kudlow really was spewing out some incoherent blather in his signature loud voice; and his ‘arithmetic’ was worse than ‘2 + 2 = 5.’ This entire administration is getting progressively more unfathomably stupid as the months tick by.
I get so upset when @CNN
has Larry kudlow or Peter Navarro on tv. They spew lies about the trump administration and make stuff up. I believe this is treasonous to do this knowing they will be lying. They both offer nothing to any conversation. Stop it @CNN
. We deserve the truth.
so, kudlow says trump isn't out to get social security/medicare. don't believe it...trump has been talking about that for over a year. he just thinks if people get a few more in their ck, they won't care. come retirement or getting your sanity back, they will definitely care.
Donald Trump's economic adviser confused about new executive orders in cringeworthy interview
Larry Kudlow, White House director of National Economic Council, could not get numbers straight while explaining US President's new coronavirus relief measures https://t.co/cf2Dgysg3k
did a good job tying Kudlow up in knots...he muddled everything and talked absolute nonsense in evading answering truthfully - the EO was signed without consultation with Govs over the 25% they have to cough up per person on top of the state benefit...
Kudlow, "We created over 9 millions jobs in three months, that's some kind of record."
No, you most certainly didn't create anything. These are jobs that were lost due to the shutdown and now with the gradual reopening, these numbers are expected. We still have 12% unemployed.🤬
