U.S.—Overnight, the nation’s population of renowned experts on complex international trade agreements ballooned, with current estimates suggesting that every single person in the country is now highly educated on the subject.
The sudden increase in the number of people who know the ins and outs about how international trade agreements work coincides with Trump’s recent activities on a trade deal with Mexico and changes to NAFTA.
“It’s incredible,” said one MSNBC commentator. “Seemingly in an instant, the nation became absolutely jam-packed with people who definitely know what they’re talking about when it comes to trade deals with other countries. We haven’t seen this kind of a sudden explosion of experts on a topic since the last time Trump started talking about something.”
“Truly a miracle,” he added.
At publishing time, the news cycle had begun to move on to other issues, causing the nation’s level of care and knowledge about trade deals to decline to “almost nothing” as everyone started to proclaim their expert status on the new hot news item.
