### Krugman is nothing but a political hack. Back in the day he was a
defender of free trade and a brilliant economist who received the NP but
then something bad happened... he clambered on a bully pulpit at the Gray

As I said, silly leftoid stories about Trump don't matter, even if they
come from NP winners.
