No, Meet Kevin, Trump Didn’t Just Imply His Favorite Stimulus Plan

Stimulus Clickbait News

I just got done watching Meet Kevin’s latest video, “Stimulus Package 2: Trump just Implied Favorite Plan!”

This video is pretty much the epitome of stimulus clickbait, topped only perhaps by Meet Kevin’s misleading use of the phrase “extra $1,000 stimulus checks just approved” to refer to additional funding for the EIDL advances, and I called out that B.S. on April 24.

But first, before we get into Meet Kevin’s latest clickbait, we’ve talked about this many time before, but to recipients of SSI or veterans benefits who do not file a tax return and who have qualifying children under the age of 17, please use the IRS Tool for Non-Filers by tomorrow, May 5, to complete that tool and let the IRS know about your qualifying children so you’ll get the $500 for each of them, alright.

Back to Meet Kevin’s latest round of clickbait.

I was happily scrolling along in my YouTube when I saw this: “Stimulus Package 2: Trump just Implied Favorite Plan!”

I thought, wow, did Trump really imply something today about his favorite stimulus round 2 plan?

So I watched Meet Kevin’s video, and it’s terrible, it’s complete nonsense, this is why I say that clickbait stimulus YouTubers absolutely must be stopped.

Here’s the breakdown of the six and a half minute video, you ready?

  • In the first minute, he basically goes over the Emergency Money for the People Act, the Automatic BOOST to Communities Act, and the Rent and Mortgage Cancellation Act, all things we’ve talked about right here on the channel.
  • Next, at the one minute, 15-second mark, Meet Kevin shows you a Tweet that Trump made this morning in which he said that Ilhan Omar is a disaster.
  • And then from there, for the next couple minutes, Meet Kevin points out that Ilhan Omar is behind the Rent and Mortgage Cancellation Act and is a co-sponsor of the Automatic BOOST to Communities Act, but she’s not associated with the Emergency Money for the People Act.

And his whole logic is with this clickbait title is that Trump is implying his favorite plan is the Emergency Money for the People Act because it’s not associated with Ilhan Omar.

First of all, Kevin, “Trump Just Implied Favorite Plan,” we’ve known for quite a while now that Donald Trump does not like Ilhan Omar, this is not news, and the fact that he tweeted this morning that Ilhan Omar is a disaster is not news, but of course because you’re a clickbait stimulus YouTuber that must be stopped you turn this into a stimulus video.

And second of all, your logic is horrible.

Just to reiterate what his logic is, it goes like this:

1. Trump doesn’t like Omar.

2. Omar is the one behind the Rent and Mortgage Cancellation Act, and a co-sponsor of the Automatic BOOST to Communities Act, so she’s associated with both of those, but she’s not associated with the Emergency Money for the People Act, so clearly Trump is implying that his favorite plan is the Emergency Money for the People Act because it’s not associated with Omar.

This guy must be stopped, because this is the worst logic ever.

Let’s say all you know about me is that I don’t like chocolate chips.

OK, and let’s say we’re at an ice cream shop, only three flavors: mint chocolate chip, chocolate chip cookie dough, and vanilla ice cream.

All you know about me is that I don’t like chocolate chips.

Does it therefore follow that since I don’t like chocolate chips and therefore I don’t like Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream that I’m implying that my favorite is Vanilla Ice Cream?

No, maybe I don’t like ice cream altogether, maybe Trump doesn’t like any of these, first of all, it’s not news that Trump doesn’t like Ilhan Omar, and second of all, it’s incredibly poor logic to read into the fact that Trump doesn’t like Ilhan Omar that he’s implying that his favorite is the Emergency Money for the People Act.

And then after this, for about a minute, he talks about how he made a video yesterday where he ranked the current stimulus proposals by the number of cosponsors they have because he believes you can track “which bills are doing better by the amount of cosponsors they have.”

No, Kevin, that’s not how it works.

I think I might have mentioned this before, but here’s a study done by the Atlantic, and you know the Atlantic does have some political leanings, but this here is just data, here’s the data they found, and yes, this is a few years old, but it’s not like this has changed, right.

So basically National Journal, and that is part of the Atlantic brand, did a study of the correlation between the number of co-sponsors a bill has and the chance of it passing.

Newsflash: the correlation was minimal at best.

The Atlantic found that “there was a very slight link between bill-passage rate and the number of cosponsors a bill attracted, but it wasn’t close to predictive — and wasn’t far from nonexistent. Even bills that garnered more than 200 cosponsors had only a 45.8 percent success rate, in a body that requires 218 votes for passage.”

So no, you can’t tell which bills are “doing better” by the amount of cosponsors it has, at least if we define “doing better” as “chance it or something like it will pass,” which is really all that matters that you and me, right.

And look at this: “Says one House Republican aide: ‘A lot of bills are introduced just as messaging points, and there’s no intention of getting them passed.'”

You think this might just be the case with all these fairy dust bills proposed by juniorweight Congressmen and Congresswomen in the House? Hm?

But of course these free money bills provide for amazing YouTube fodder for the clickbait stimulus YouTubers that absolutely must be stopped.

And then Kevin actually starts to speak some sense, that Republicans need to get behind any bill that passes, but of course that’s incredibly obvious, we all know this.

So basically, by the time you’ve watched this video, you’ve been subjected to faulty logic arriving at a bogus conclusion followed by an obvious statement, and this, my friends is why clickbait stimulus YouTubers must be stopped.

And then of course Kevin pitches Webull and life insurance, which I can promote, too.

So if you want two free stocks, check out the link below for Webull. Right now they are offering two free stocks when you open up a new account and deposit $100: one free stock worth up to $250 when you open your account and the second free stock worth up to $1,400 when you make your initial deposit of $100 or more.

And if you don’t have life insurance and others depend on your income, check out this link for life insurance, my link actually compares quotes from several different companies like Prudential, Mutual of Omaha, Pacific Life, and several others, while Kevin’s is just a link for one company that I think partners with like one or two insurance companies, I don’t know.

Anyway, do you agree with me that clickbait stimulus YouTubers must be stopped? If so, let me know in the comments, and I’ll see you next time.
