The Stupid Has No Consistency

Trump is contantly overstating our trade deficit with China, all our trade deficits really, and the importance therein, but whatever.

Today he claims that China is working to reduce that trade imbalance by (use Dr. Evil voice) One Billion Dollars!!  The implication that he’s making this happen, of course.  That’s 1/375th of the deficit.  So which is it, much, much bigger than we think or much, much smaller?


Can the stupid at least be consistent?  Or is inconsistency the nature of some stupid?

So philosophical….
