    Tweet from David Rothkopf:

    Only a president who views everything through the lens of TV could think Larry Kudlow was suitable to be National Economic Advisor. Because he's not an economist in any sense of the word, he just plays one on television. Fake experts for fake advisory roles. Trumptopia.

    Welp now that GDP is forecast is below 1.9% in the 1Q he will blame it on his ex-Econ Adviser?

    But he looks good on TV?

    Kudlow is at least a free trade advocate but I doubt that will stop Trump considering Cohn's resignation. Tetlock mentioned him quite negatively his most recent book but that is nothing new for a bureaucrat.

    That's how you keep nutjobs, hacks and crazies out of power and keep the Presidency on the straight and narrow.
    This whole post is right but this is what happens when you have an unaccountable government, it never stops growing. This has been a nearly unending trend since Teddy Roosevelt took office. When you give the government an inch, it takes a mile.

    He seems to change people as often as he was replacing managers in his businesses.

    Kudlow, one of the worst choices he could pick, but he has a really strong knack of picking people with no experience so I'm not shocked by this choice. My guess Alex Jones will replace McMaster.
