‘Lame-Brained’ Trump Triggers Avalanche Of Mockery After Bonkers Tweet Attacking His Own Fed Chairman

President Donald Trump triggered an avalanche of mockery on Monday after he lambasted his own Federal Reserve over reports of an economic slowdown on the horizon.

Trump smacked Jerome Powell, the Fed chairman he chose in November 2017, claiming that he “blew it” and doesn’t know what he’s doing.”

“Despite a Federal Reserve that doesn’t know what it is doing – raised rates far to fast (very low inflation, other parts of world slowing, lowering & easing) & did large scale tightening, $50 Billion/month, we are on course to have one of the best Months of June in U.S. history,” Trump tweeted — yes, he misspelled “too”.

“Think of what it could have been if the Fed had gotten it right,” he added. “Thousands of points higher on the Dow, and GDP in the 4’s or even 5’s. Now they stick, like a stubborn child, when we need rates cuts, & easing, to make up for what other countries are doing against us. Blew it!”

Trump’s claims — which he deleted and reposted without misspellings — were quickly fact-checked and ridiculed by other Twitter users.

Check out Trump’s tweet and some of the responses below.
