With all the media craziness over the past two years, I sometimes wonder how far liberals will go to get rid of President Trump. On Friday night, I found out — and the risk they're willing to take is a booming economy.

Comedian Bill Maher said on his HBO show that he’s fine with a recession so long as it leads to President Trump’s defeat in 2020.

"I think one way you get rid of Trump is a crashing economy," said Maher. "So please, bring on the recession." 

“Sorry if that hurts people, but it’s either root for a recession or you lose your democracy,” he went on.

His comment comes during a month where the unemployment rate in the U.S. hit a 50-year low and the jobs available outnumber the total of unemployed.
