The loony left is openly advocating for an end to the economic revival that has swept the nation, with HBO's Bill Maher "hoping" for a recession because "one way you get rid of Trump is a crashing economy."

Let that sink in for a moment.

Maher is apparently admitting that the economy is doing well, and to crash it would be justifiable, so long as it means getting rid of the guy who made it strong in the first place.

Isn't that bizarre? Think for a moment what a recession would mean to your little world. Do you think Maher would suffer all that much under a recession?

Does anyone really believe that a recession would benefit this country the same way that President Trump's economic policies have?

Leading Democrats are campaigning on impeaching the architect of the economic recovery and are promising to repeal the tax cuts, re-institute job-killing regulations and restore the dreaded individual mandate.

Meanwhile,the heroes of the left go on national television during last night's Tony Awards presentation on CBS and yell, "F*** Trump" to thunderous applause from their base. They call Trump's daughter the "C word," and attack young white men who wear MAGA hats as racists.

And somehow Trump is the problem?

All of this while Trump is in Canada, fighting for fair trade deals for Americans before jetting to Singapore to try and reach a deal to denuclearize the Korean peninsula.

All I can say is, "Keep on resisting, snowflakes."
