Larry Kudlow CPAC 2020: Don't Worry About COVID, Do Worry About Socialism

One year ago at CPAC, Kudlow insisted COVID was no threat...the real threat was (DUN DUN DUUUNNNNNN) socialism!

As Donald Trump hid the severity of the coronavirus from the American people in February 2020, his chief economic advisor told the CPAC 2020 audience what the real threat to the public was.

Larry Kudlow began by claiming Trump took unprecedented and historic steps to protect the American people from the virus. (Over 500,000 dead, now, so far and counting.)

Kudlow, who is always wrong said, "[COVID] will turn out to be a low risk proposition, not a high risk proposition."

Again, America has 500K dead Americans from COVID-19, and it's still spreading throughout our nation as we try to get everyone vaccinated.

But back in 2020, what Larry Kudlow was really worried about was not the coronavirus at all. It guessed it… Socialism!

Kudlow said the coronavirus won't sink the economy, but socialism will. Larry dismissed COVID in favor of attacking a fictitious threat against our democracy.

How [not] prescient.
