Twitter critics were quick to slam Larry Kudlow on Sunday after the former White House economic adviser said he “yearns for the calmness of Donald Trump.”
Even Kudlow seemed to be aware of how incredible that sounded, because he instantly added: “I’m being actually quite serious here.”
Kudlow — who, incidentally, also declared 18 months ago that the Trump administration had shut down COVID-19 “pretty close to airtight” — said during an appearance on Fox Business that the former president was a “good, hands-on decision-maker.”
A very real thing that Larry Kudlow just said on Fox Business: "When I say I yearn for the calmness of Donald Trump, I am being serious …"The. Calmness. Of. Donald. Trump. pic.twitter.com/Llqqqp8xyJ

It wasn’t Kudlow’s first time making such a statement.
“Truthfully, I yearn for the calm, peaceful, placid leadership days of President Donald Trump,” he said last week on his own Fox Business program after bashing President Joe Biden over the United States’ exit from Afghanistan, which Trump had set up.
Kudlow has consistently expressed disappointment in the new administration. He complained earlier this year that he thought Biden would force everyone to drink “plant-based” beer (instead of beer typically made from grains, hops and yeast…).
He said he wasn’t “worried about tweets and whatever” in response to his comments about Trump’s “calmness.” So:
Larry Kudlow on Fox Business: "I yearn for the calmness of Donald Trump." I'm speechless. Who's got an appropriate response? (Inappropriate responses also acceptable.)

Weird to think there's an alternative universe far, far away, where "calmness" is defined as "batshit craziness"…

Kudlow misses “the calmness of Donald Trump.” Is that like the eloquence of Donald Trump and the integrity of Donald Trump?

I yearn to never hear of Larry Kudlow again
