The liberal New York Times columnist Paul Krugman recently made a sick and irresponsible suggestion on Twitter. He said that maybe Trump would allow a terror attack in America to boost his approval. You know, like Bush did, he suggests.

Liberal NY Times columnist suggests Donald Trump will allow terrorists to attack America on purpose
New York Times columnist Paul Krugman suggested on Twitter Friday that President-elect Donald Trump will intentionally allow terrorists to attack Americans during his presidency, arguing that he has “incentives” to do so.
“Thought: There was (rightly) a cloud of illegitimacy over Bush, dispelled (wrongly) by 9/11. Creates some interesting incentives for Trump,” Krugman tweeted Friday afternoon.
Krugman’s mention of the “illegitimacy” surrounding former President George W. Bush was a reference to the Supreme Court deciding the fate of the 2000 presidential election: Bush over Al Gore. Shortly after that, Democrats labeled Bush “selected not elected.”
But that stigma was erased just a short time later after Al Qaeda attacked the U.S. on Sept. 11, 2001. It was Bush’s tough response to terrorism that won the heart of Americans.
Here’s his tweet:
