I think it’s an open admission Trump has no economic advisors. He has no advisors left at all, besides Stephen Miller and other voices in his head.

Nobody ever said that economics has to be a dismal science. That was never a problem. Stop trying to look cool.

If I were doing something to help Trump, I wouldn’t want my real name out there either. Statistically, it just doesn’t end well for the helper.

I am enjoying the implication that a bunch of superheroes showed up to help out the completely unprepared Trump administration and the geniuses running the office over there said: “Hmm, Bruce Wayne, internationally reknowned industrialist with connections everywhere? Well I guess you could try out for ‘intern.’”
