Conservative CNN anchor S.E. Cupp blasted President Donald Trump for taking a “blow torch to the U.S. economy this week.”
“If it feels like the world is on fire, that’s because it literally is,” Cupp said. “New reports that yesterday a U.S. plane made its way to South America to help local authorities fight the massive fires ripping through the Amazon, the world’s largest rain forest.”
“The Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro finally caved to global pressure to authorize the country’s military to assist in putting the fires out. That afterBolsonaro initially accused his critics of intentionally starting the fires — to make him look bad,” she said. “Chaos, delayed action, conspiracy theories, sound familiar?
“Well, here at home, there are metaphorical fires to put out, too” she continued. “President Trump lit a blow torch to the U.S. economy this week, shortly before leaving for France for the G7 economic summit.”
“Despite grim predictions by economists and experts that our rocket economy could be in for some trouble, thanks to steelworker job cuts, wild deficit increases, an escalating tariff war and more — Trump spent the week insisting it is all the Fed’s fault,” Cupp said.
“Yesterday, on the eve of the first day of the G7, not coincidentally, China called Trump’s bluff, announcing $75 billion in new tariffs on U.S. goods. In response, Trump went on a Twitter tirade ‘hereby ordering’ American companies to leave China and implying his own Fed Chair is a bigger enemy than China’s president,” she reported. “Right after that, the stock market plummeted, eventually dropping by over 600 points. So naturally, Trump announced more tariffs on China, because that will fix it.”
“Here is tonight’s headline. Better start practicing your stop, drop and roll, because the arsonist-in-chief is just getting started,” Cupp warned.
“You can sense his desperation, his panic,” she said. His own aides inside the White House warn of increasingly erratic behavior.”
“Like what you ask?” Well, there was the tantrum over not being able to buy Greenland, suggesting that he would buy Greenland in the first place. Implying he might just be the second coming of God. Changing his stance on gun control three separate times. Daring his fed chair to resign,” Cupp said. “That is all just this week.”
‘There are some women who’d beg to differ’: Watch CNN anchor’s epic response to sexism in politics

"Come again? What's that now?" Cupp asked in disbelief.
"I think there are some women who beg to differ," she noted.
‘What was he talking about?’ CNN’s Angela Rye baffled by Joe Biden’s ‘victim-blaming’ rant about black families
The former executive director of the Congressional Black Caucus was baffled by an exchange during the third Democratic debate.
"I’ve seen a lot of criticism of former Vice President Joe Biden over this exchange," CNN's Jake Tapper said, playing a clip.
"What responsibility do you think that Americans need to take to repair the legacy of slavery in our country?" moderator Linsey Davis asked Biden on Thursday.
"We bring social workers into homes and parents to help them deal with how to raise their children. It is not they don’t want to help. They don’t know quite what to do. Play the radio. Make sure the television — excuse me make sure that you have the record player on at night, the phone —" Biden said.
Pennsylvania Trump voter shreds president for breaking promises to Rust Belt: ‘He pulled a Houdini on us’
A Pennsylvania man who voted for President Donald Trump in 2016 told CNN on Friday that he's bitterly disappointed in how he's seen no progress in manufacturing jobs returning to his community.
John Golomb, a retired steel worker who backed the president in 2016 because of his promises to bring back good paying jobs to the Rust Belt, explained to CNN that Trump gave his community false hope about an economic revival during his first presidential campaign.
"We had Donald Trump come here and profess about reviving American steel," he said. "That's just what all of us steelworkers wanted to hear!"
