Progressives, being fundamentally miserable people, see misery as a tool to their ends.
Big Left today is exercising “Recession Porn”, hoping for an economic downturn to get rid of Trump.
It’s amazing what liberals daydream about. While many of us might imagine wealth, fame, or attractive women (sorry, Zsu-Zsu), Bill Maher dreams of a recession that would lead to massive job losses and foreclosed homes.
Maher: “I’ve been hoping for a recession – people hate me for it – but it would get rid of Trump.”
Josh Barro: “Recessions are really bad. People lose their jobs and homes and we shouldn’t wish for it.”
Maher: “I know. It’s worth it.”
Actually, it’s only “worth it” if Maher loses his job.
And Maher isn’t even the most depraved among ’em.
