It’s safe to say that liberal New York Times columnist Paul Krugman still hasn’t gotten over the election. Krugman on Tuesday tweeted, “An American first: a president who was obviously mentally ill the moment he took office. Thanks, Comey.” He then tweeted a link about the President’s claims of voter fraud. On January 24, Krugman made a Nazi comparison.
On December 12, 2016, the journalist complained:
So this was a tainted election. It was not, as far as we can tell, stolen in the sense that votes were counted wrong, and the result won’t be overturned. But the result was nonetheless illegitimate in important ways; the victor was rejected by the public, and won the Electoral College only thanks to foreign intervention and grotesquely inappropriate, partisan behavior on the part of domestic law enforcement.
The question now is what to do with that horrifying knowledge in the months and years ahead.
He later concluded, “This election was an outrage, and we should never forget it.”

On January 24, Krugman made a lame Nazi comparison. Alluding to 1938 attacks on Jews, Kristallnacht ( or “night of the long broken glass”), he tweeted, “Random thought: when Trump attempts purge of intelligence community -- you know he will - I claim dibs on name: Night of the Long Ties.”
