Panetta and Trump: Who are You Calling Chumps?

Leon Panetta:
Trump treats Americans like we’re chumps
Check out the entire interview as it was excellent. But I had to look up this old fashion word:
a person who is easily tricked : a stupid or foolish person
OK – Trump supporters are easily tricked. But Trump wants to pretend he is a young vigorous man! Chris Matthews did talk about young people who are more likely to check out Urban Dictionary than the old fashion Merriam-Webster dictionary:
Someone who does not understand the basics of life on earth. Confused easily.
Actually this is the perfect description for Trump supporters. There are more definitions at Urban Dictionary that I would submit also apply!

Links on ProGrowthLiberal’s ‘Who are You Calling Chumps?’

ProGrowthLiberal learns from the dictionary that chump means “a stupid or foolish person”. He thinks that this a perfect description for Trump supporters.

He overlooks that this description applies to economists in general and to the agenda pushers of EconoSpeak in particular. To paraphrase the Urban Dictionary: An economist, colloq. chump is ‘someone who does not understand the basics of economics.’ Accordingly, the main output of both orthodox and heterodox chumps is pointless squabbling as exemplified by ProGrowthLiberal.
