Probably one of the funniest things about the trillion dollar coin idea — and it’s already about the dumbest political idea anyone has every come up with — is how seriously the advocates are taking it. Like look at this humorless reaction (language warning, of course) to FOX News suggestion that the coin would have to be equal in weight to 89 blue whales.
Really, how dare FOX News make the scheme to use a loophole on a minor law to mint a trillion dollar coin to pay debt seem idiotic. This is smirt people stuff. Very serious.
