New York Times columnist Paul Krugman has won some pretty prestigious awards in his lifetime. He was the 2002 Editor and Publisher columnist of the year, he’s won the John Bates Clark Medal, and he even won the Nobel Prize for economics in 2008. But those awards must pale in comparison to the award he won today. He was the first place winner of Donald Trump’s fake news awards and he must be so proud.

Winning a prize from Donald Trump, a man who speaks more fake news on a daily basis than nearly anyone else on earth, is quite the accomplishment. Mr. Krugman was given the award for making an observation he made the day Trump won the presidency. He said that our economy would never recover from Trump’s victory. Trump used the fact that the Dow had closed at a record high that day, to discredit Krugman, and start screaming about “fake news”. Krugman’s statement apparently made Trump mad enough that he awarded Krugman first place in his ridiculous contest. Only time will tell if Mr. Krugman’s statement about our economy is going to come true. But one thing’s for sure…it’s way too early to start screaming that Krugman’s statement is fake news. In fact the way Trump and his Republican cronies are hurting our country we may very well go down the tubes before voters can elect enough good politicians to fix all their damage.

Krugman must have really enjoyed making Trump mad on election day. What he said a couple of days ago about Trump and his Republican stooges probably made him even madder.
