These days, all you need to do to earn criticism from the mainstream media is to be appointed to President Donald Trump’s White House.
Before he even spends a single day on the job, new economic adviser Larry Kudlow is already on the hot seat.
Late-night host Trevor Noah dedicated a segment of his show Thursday night to Kudlow — and to past comments he made.
Noah specifically targeted comments by Kudlow in which he denied there would be an economic crash from the housing bubble at the end of former President George W. Bush’s time in office.
The economy did eventually crash, leading the government to step in and deliver federal bailouts.
“He didn’t see the warning signs that a tsunami was about to hit, but it takes a special kind of person to be in the tsunami and deny that it’s happening at all,” said Noah.
The comedian then played clips of Kudlow from late 2007, in which he’s shown declaring the “recession debate” was over.
Noah’s lowest blow came at the end of his segment. He said, “We wish Larry Kudlow the best of luck. Assuming he hasn’t been fired already.”
It’s almost as if Noah is rooting for Kudlow and Trump to fail, right? Nah — must be our imagination.
