THE MORE SERIOUS HE IS THE NUTTIER:

Ben Sasse says if Trump is 'even half-serious' on tariffs, his plan is 'nuts' (Catherine Garcia, April 5, 2018, The Week)

In a statement Thursday night, Sasse said he hopes Trump is "just blowing off steam again, but, if he's even half-serious, this is nuts." In justifying the tariffs, Trump has accused China of stealing U.S. intellectual property, and Sasse said that while "China is guilty of many things," Trump has "no actual plan to win" a trade war. "He's threatening to light American agriculture on fire," Sasse continued. "Let's absolutely take on Chinese bad behavior, but with a plan that punishes them instead of us. This is the dumbest possible way to do this." 

Don't bet on it.
