Remember the Isner-Mahut tennis match at Wimbledon that lasted over 11 hours and spanned 3 days? That’s a long match but it’s nothing compared to how much the national debt increased during the same time period:

“Shortly after the 11-hour, five-minute match between American John Isner and Nicolas Mahut, of France, Buchanan posted the following to Twitter: “Think Wimbledon tickets are expensive? Our National Debt has gone up by $1,729,000,000 during the Isner v. Mahut match #USA.”
