    Love that kohola pic. It’s so accurate.

    Caught him on Varney this morning & he just makes you smile. Cohen was a wet blanket.

      I … LOVE IT … “growthier”. Kudlow is adopting MY President’s inventive lexicon. But before the intelligentsia mock the … “improper language for a President” … consider the elegant shorthand message contained in that word. Growth-ier … reorganizing the government’s policies to promote personal and corporate economic GROWTH. The Obama corollary would be “Stateier” … State-ier … reorganizing the government’s (State’s) policies to promote bureaucracy and dependence.

      I’ll go with Growthier!

      Should be, could be, and might be are all terms most Treepers really want to know but are reluctant to ask or even infer out of respect for SD’s privacy. But, I’m sure glad you mentioned it because I’ve wanted to for a long time!

      “SD should be working for the administration”

      Than who would do the website? The website does not run itself to research and compile unique (other than Presidential and Open thread) posts. People are needed outside of the Administration as well as inside. Often people that are outside of the restraints of government service can be just as, if not more effective in their quest to see the MAGA agenda succeed.

      I think he IS!! Or, probably, they are!! I suspect SD is a number of people and, to me, CTH is the PR arm of the IC White Hats!!! Think: Adm. Mike Rogers’s blog, if he had one…

    Astoundingly, Kudlow looks and acts drunk, at least in the first minute of this interview, which is all I watched.

          Some meds for heart patients can really slow you down, depending on the dosage. Beta Blockers, for instance, slow and/or regulate (steady) the heart rate, but also block certain receptors (hence beta BLOCKER). This can be an issue for allergy reactions, and other problems, and generally slows people down – depends on the family/type of BB.

            Cuppa. you are correct . I am on beta blockers. When i am in a situation of quick change. My heart needs to speed up but can’t. I then get slightly dizzy and disoriented Just for a moment until my heart catches up. I think Mr. Kudlow is giddy with success. The man loves his job!

      Please notice that both those locations are outdoors. We have a heat advisory in place today for much of Western NY.
      Heat and high humidity can affect senior citizens (even “healthy” 83 yr.old people like my father without any known heart or respiratory issues), so I would not be surprised if that was the reason for this.

      If you’d watched all of it you would have seen a man totally in control but being careful of what he said. Standing in the summer heat and humidity of the Swamp. (Washington, DC)

      He’s answering questions of the media, they are snakes. He was answering questions off the cuff and he did it well. He did well because he was being careful.

      He even made a joke about his own sobriety.

      JMC, I can personally vouch for the effects of heat on an older person who is on meds for HBP and cardiopathy. Heat and sunlight will drain your energy and electrolytes very quickly (about 3x to 4x as fast as for a younger person in normal health) unless you’re drinking a special drink that replenishes them. The effect can be – more or less – to become disoriented and appear drunk, to the uninformed observer.

      I don’t think Larry was that affected in the impromptu gaggle but he was walking somewhere and stopped and stood in the heat. His slightly lower energy level is not something we sees in most of his planned interviews – this was an unplanned event so he hadn’t had time to rest from the walk and juice up.

    I am absolutely falling in LOVE with our Koala! He is such a breath of fresh air every time he speaks with the WHORES. I love how he defends our President and tells the WHORES that it is OK to write something good about what he is doing for our country.

    The Consumer Confidence numbers continue to skyrocket! Today’s results haven’t been seen since 2000.

      I LOVE his totally accessible, understandable style of communicating very complex financial and economic issues. His personality is sooooooo likeable.

      I compare and contrast that to Alan Greenspan (who lectured America that manufacturing jobs were never coming back … ever) … in his ponderous, inscrutable style of communication. Greenspan was hailed as a genius. Hardly.

    Why can’t China just say “Yes” once in a while? Because this is all new to them, they can’t figure it out, so they are paralyzed. OK, sure, they won’t do anything unless it benefits China directly. But I am coming to believe that they cannot accept any benefit unless it also hurts the other side. If they cannot identify how it hurts US, then they cannot accept that it really benefits China. Mutual benefit is not in their realm of understanding, it does not exist in their philosophy, so they don’t know what to do with it. Paralyzed. Can’t move! Rusted!

    I realize that those tent like structures don’t look like much, but they are likely set up with if not AC at least some fans. I’m outside of Philly and it’s hot and muggy and even worse when you just step out of AC. into the heat and sun.

    During the interview with Fox he didn’t look hot and he certainly was sitting. He was having a pretty controlled back and forth about his area of expertise.

    He could have just walked back into the WH, he was willing to answer some questions from media. I laughed when he referenced Nancy R. and her just say no campaign, I was surprised none there knew enough of his background to at least hear a little chuckle at his joke about his own background.

    He did well at deflecting questions on areas that either he doesn’t have expertise or where he does but doesn’t want to talk about them.

    It is amazing to see the doom and gloom from nearly every media outlet and the chaos that is surrounding the President. Then see a somewhat longer format or impromptu interview and realize the entire administration is very relaxed. They seem to effortlessly discuss and teach the economic priorities of the administration. Despite the media’s attempt to make the other garbage the “news of the day”.

  16. I love the back and forth with his interviewer. His comments have his interviewer nearly in stitches at times. At about the 4:15 min mark he starts putting out his positions beautifully.

    “Here’s my point. I think the trade news is basically, if you look at the continuum, more good news. It’s more good news!

    The President’s negotiating style, his strength, his backbone, his protection of America, it’s working! It’s working. It’s like the other policies on taxes and regs.

    And so you may have upside surprises too. I understand you could have a downside. [interview responds with a sound of interest and surprise.] But you may have upside surprises as the economy outperforms and we move to a Trumpian.”

    I love it when he drops this awesome new term, A TRUMPIAN. He then defines.

    “You know, no tariffs, no non-tariff barriers, no subsidies, trade reform. Think of that. An upside surprise. Just saying. just saying.”

    Love the grin he gives after dropping that one.

    Larry Kudlow would be right at ease sitting on Joe the Plumber’s back deck room sipping a cool iced non-alcoholic beverage and talking to the guys & gals about the economy and how they’re going to benefit. And they’d all understand everything he says.

    After which he could get up, ride out to the country club, and sit with all the CEO’s and CFO’s and discuss economics with them with the same ease.

    PDJT has an excellent economic communications team. Maybe the best I’ve every witnessed.
