New Home Sales Crash In October – Biggest Plunge Since 2011

Sharing is Caring!

Trumpeteers rejoice. “Best Economy Evah!!!”. In case you didn’t notice, the trade deficit also reached and all-time high today, up $14 billion since the Great Orange One ascended to the throne. The housing market is now in the process of a slow motion crash. Prices have just begun to fall. There is another 20% to 30% to go. Thank God Fannie and Freddie came back with those 3% down mortgages. Millions of morons who bought in the last 3 or 4 years will be substantially underwater in their mortgages in no time.

Housing Bubble 2.0 is bursting and the fools, tools, and idiots who were lured into it will be getting a good fucking. All hail Trump and his economy. When the economy and stock market were going up due to his reckless adrenaline corporate tax cut injection, he took full credit. Now that we are headed into recession and a stock market crash he’ll blame the Fed and the Democrats. His Trumpeteers will believe him. Idiots.
