When it comes to analyzing Democratic presidential candidates and their campaigns, New York Times columnist Paul Krugman has shown on more than one occasion that his analyses leave a heckuva lot to be desired – to put it mildly.

For example, just two days after Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) was victorious in New Hampshire, Krugman actually declared that Sanders was not a socialist. He said this even though Sanders is an admitted socialist and even though another unapologetic socialist (AOC) enthusiastically endorsed his campaign in October.

And just a little over a week ago, Krugman took to the Twitter machine to reassure people that Sanders was “not a wannabe authoritarian ruler”, in spite of rather large amounts of evidence to the contrary.

This time around, Kruggie weighed in on Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) after her exit from the Democratic presidential race.

As he often does, Krugman made several questionable claims in a multi-tweet thread, but it was the first one that had people doing a double take:

I wrote a receipt-filled piece earlier today explaining how sexism had nothing to do with why campaigns like Warren’s and Sen. Kamala Harris’s failed, which you can read here, but unfortunately Paul Krugman doesn’t read my work. Twitter users, however, responded to his tweet directly with their observations, many of which debunked Krugman’s “sexism” spin:

Oops.

Perhaps next time Krugman should just stick to economic matters … or maybe not, considering his disastrous track record and his penchant for rooting for the economy to fail because Orange Man Bad.
