Eric’s crystal ball needs a polish

In the autumn of 2016, frequent contributor Eric Bahrt wrote that Donald Trump would absolutely not be elected president of the United States.

Bahrt was so sure of his prediction that he declared he would “stake his reputation on it”.

We all know how that worked out.

Then, using the same keen political acumen, Bahrt wrote a snarky, I-told-you-so letter in late May stating that the Trump-Kim Korea summit was postponed and could very well not take place at all. He mocked the summit supporters for jumping the gun by believing that it would be realised.

Oops! Wrong again, Swami. It might be time for you to get a new crystal ball, Khun Eric. Do you also make horse racing and stock market predictions?
