White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders calls out Paul Krugman of the New York Times for the "worst prediction of the year."
Sanders mocked Krugman for predicting that a Donald Trump presidency would send the U.S. economy down the drain.
She took to Twitter to expose his stupidity:
Greatest story of the year: booming @realDonaldTrump economy.
Worst prediction for the year:

Per Daily Caller:
Sanders referenced Krugman’s Nov 9, 2016 declaration that “if the question is when markets will recover, a first-pass answer is never.” The Nobel Prize-winning economist continued “under any circumstances, putting an irresponsible, ignorant man who takes his advice from all the wrong people in charge of the nation with the world’s most important economy would be very bad news. What makes it especially bad right now, however, is the fundamentally fragile state much of the world is still in, eight years after the great financial crisis.”
The economy conversely has boomed under President Donald Trump with 87 new highs for the Dow Jones since the president was elected. A three year high GDP growth rate despite two massive hurricanes and an unemployment hovering around 4 percent. Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta recently told a roundtable attended by The Daily Caller that he expects nearly 2 million new jobs to have been created under Trump.
Acosta added that in September 2017 the U.S. “had the highest total employment level ever in the United States.”
