Once upon a time, in the land of MAGA hats and “fake news,” a super wealthy investor named Scott Bessent spilled the tea on what he thinks about the big, bad economy. According to Bessent, the crazy economy is like a bodybuilder on steroids – all bulked up on the outside, but inside, it’s a total mess, like that one messy roommate who never washes their dishes.

Bessent thinks the New York Times and some other fancy-pants economists are treating regular folks like they’re as dumb as a box of rocks. They’re saying, “Hey, you don’t get how awesome the economy is right now!” But really, it’s like taking out a huge loan for a shopping spree and then crying when the bill shows up. Bessent says, “Uh-uh, that’s not how we roll.”
He’s hollering from the rooftops that since President Biden took over, the cost of food has shot through the roof like a rocket, and housing prices are skyrocketing like they’re chasing after NASA. Apparently, millennials are crying into their avocado toast because they think they’ll never be able to afford a house. It’s a real sob story out there, folks.
But hold on to your Make America Great Again hats, because Bessent believes there’s a chance that the chaos might just switch over to rainbows and unicorns if our old pal Donald Trump takes the wheel again. According to Bessent, before COVID crashed the party, everything was peachy keen in the economy, and he’s predicting that if Trump saunters back into the White House, it’ll be like winning the jackpot at the local carnival.
He thinks Trump isn’t after chaos and revenge like some folks are barking about; nope, he’s gunning for redemption and rejuvenation. Bessent reckons that with a good team backing him up, Trump could turn the whole ship around and head toward a brighter, shinier future. So, grab your popcorn, folks, and stay tuned for the next episode of The Economy and the Donald, coming soon to a voting booth near you!
