The buck stops here, said Truman.
But Trump says it stops with the next fellow in line. Let it be the next president’s toothache.
Last year administration bean counters unfurled a worrisome chart before the president…
It revealed an approaching “hockey stick”-pattern spike in the national debt — but only after a possible second Trump term had concluded.
Came the president’s response, according to our well-placed spies:
“Yeah, but I won’t be here.”
As said King Louis XV when the squall clouds began forming over pre-revolutionary France:
“Après moi, le déluge.”
And what a déluge is on tap apres Trump — if not pendant Trump!
The United States is to its neck with red ink as is — some $21.8 trillion worth of federal debt alone.
