Don't Worry. If the Economy Tanks, He'll Blame Obama

President-elect Donald Trump touted resilient holiday spending and a strong stock market in a self-congratulatory tweet on Monday evening.

"The world was gloomy before I won - there was no hope. Now the market is up nearly 10% and Christmas spending is over a trillion dollars!" the president-elect tweeted on Boxing Day.
Of course, the point that the September forecasts for Xmas spending were consistent with what happened makes no difference to The Grifter-Elect.

He's taking credit for good things that happen before he's in office; it's a safe bet that if the economy stutters in the next four years, he'll lay the blame elsewhere. It's what he does and the Trumpanzees will fall right in line.

Of course they'll blame Obama when the Ryan budget crashes the economy; they were still blaming Bill Clinton for their problems in October of 2008.
