Yesterday at work, in the employee break room a friendly co-worker tells me “Trump will go down as the greatest president in our lifetime”. I assumed he was joking and made a sarcastic remark.
He was not joking. He doubled down.
So I asked, “On what measurement, what criteria is he the best ever?”
My co-worker replied, “Best Economy Ever, look at your 401-K”.
I came back with, “If I can show you that other presidents did better, will you take that back?”
He said, “Yes, but no Fake News and nothing from the Deep State”…(honestly I was getting worried about this guy as he seemed normal up until now)
So today, I gave him this:
Here’s the change in Dow Jones Industrial Average from Inauguration Day to Aug 12 of their 3rd year in the White House:
Trump is 4th our of 5 in presidents relative to raises in the DOW.
He replied, “Where did YOU get these numbers?”
I answered, “Simple, just looked them up on the internet and used a calculator to figure the numbers.”
He ended the conversation with, “Okay, I better find out for myself.”
In other words, I am lying, or the Fake News has taken over the DOW…or the Deep State is involved.
I’ve never met a cult follower, until now, and now I am seeing them everywhere.
