Here’s one that comes with a “hot take warning” — wear oven mitts before handling this Paul Krugman doozy:
Starting to look like two possible outcomes: Trump and a number of others end up in jail, or thousands of journalists end up in prison camps https://t.co/I9DpBQFwtm

Krugman would never exaggerate, would he?
There are a lot of ways impeachment could go, but these two outcomes are so laughable I thought they came from a parody account. https://t.co/1jUHln4LUB

We consider Krugman’s account to be a parody, even if Twitter doesn’t insist that he list it as such.
Writers who present false choices will either be given forced logic lessons or purple.

Can you imagine what 2009 to 2017 would have looked like if these same idiots had shown this much interest in potential presidential corruption?

Nobody is ending up in prison camps, you insufferable nitwit. https://t.co/oXw1fhbkqW

However, considering the accuracy track record of the Nobel Laureate economist, maybe neither of those things will happen:
Third possibility: You're an idiot. https://t.co/Q6d2DN2mHW

How the hell did a man with such a limited imagination win a Nobel Prize.
How about a third option. The Congress will look like fools (again) and the world will continue without a glitch? https://t.co/s9zLmppB8P

I'm thinking he's as right about this as he's been about anything lately within his "area of expertise"- which is to say not much. https://t.co/piYbU98MAI

I wish there was a place to bet on Krugman predictions. That’d be easy money!

Let’s just say Krugman’s batting average with his predictions is incredibly low.
