Did you catch the trailer for House of Cards...

... with Claire Underwood as President?

I was terrified.

Remember this.

Breaking Down The Trump Familys Many Conflicts Of Interest Velshi & Ruhle MSNBC

The tariffs imposed today reminded me of a West Wing conversation between...

... Charlie and the President.

CUT TO: EXT. ANDREWS AIR FORCE BASE - NIGHT Bartlet and Charlie are exiting Air Force One, discussing the situation in Japan.

greet them.

BARTLET
They're trying to export their way out of their own economic problems.

CHARLIE
Yes, sir.

BARTLET
And by dumping low priced steel on the U.S., you know what they're asking
for?

CHARLIE
A protectionist response.

BARTLET
They're begging for a protectionist response. Steel and mining employ a
hundred and seventy thousand workers. They're not going to sit around while discount
steel comes flying into... how you doing? [waves to someone calling "Welcome back, sir!"]
They're going to want retaliatory tariffs, and you know what that means?

CHARLIE
A return to Smoot-Hawley and the Great Depression.

BARTLET
A return to Smoot-Hawley and the Great Depression.
