People like Bill Maher, NBC News reporter Richard Engel and others have been quite vocal in their hopes for an economic recession in order to hurt President Trump’s chances of re-election. Others in the media have taken a “nobody wants a recession BUT” approach. Put it all together and the R-word is being used a lot these days, not that they’re hoping for it to happen or anything:
I promise you'll never have more fun watching a supercut about a recession

WOW. The media’s going out of its way to prove Trump correct on that one:
When Trump says the media is pushing the idea of a recession in order to weaken him, he's absolutely right. https://t.co/Jr4j7LqHuI

He’s not wrong, that’s for sure.
The all parrot the same talking points all the time. Almost like they say what the Democrats instruct them to say https://t.co/DLzWtntV7G

Always weird how a diverse, independent, non-partisan press always seems daily to have similar talking points. https://t.co/PRZ5mZnPv0

"Recession isn't about a number, it's about a feeling." Punditry in a nutshell, today.

Could the MSM make their desperation any more obvious?
