Donald Trump Just Picked A Laughingstock For A Huge Federal Reserve Job

[link:https://www.huffpost.com/entry/stephen-moore-federal-reserve-trump_n_5c953977e4b01ebeef0f13e8|]

For years, the economic commentariat has enjoyed a running joke: Stephen Moore.

Moore, you see, has made a career of advancing various right-wing political priorities by dressing up as an economist and saying things about money and numbers in print and on TV. Unfortunately, almost nothing he says is true.

Moore is so bad that an editor at the Kansas City Star once refused to run literally anything he ever wrote, because a piece Moore had previously published in the paper was so littered with basic factual errors. He’s a living embodiment of the worst elements of the economics profession ― a man who doesn’t care about the truth, abuses statistics, makes outlandish predictions, smears his opponents and never pays any professional price.

3. He's just another loser as a job filler, but hopefully

this means he'll be on TV less than he is now. He's such a tRump apologist and defender.

4. So, just like the rest of his appointees, he is eminently qualified for the position...

according to the Orange Horror.

The less qualified they are, the more likely he is to appoint them. If someone is as abysmal as this guy, tRump will be praising huim from the rooftops...until he says one bad word about him, then he will turn and try to destroy him.

Lather, rinse, repeat until everything in the government is in total shambles.

5. I Bet The Fed Board Moves To Get Rid Of Him

This is the guy who founded Club For Growth and was so bad that he was ousted by the very same CFG board
