REPORTER: You mentioned the stock market earlier, to go back to that. To be clear, the Dow Jones dropped more than 2,000 points this week. Are you suggesting that it was overblown? Are financial markets overreacting here?
TRUMP: I think the financial markets are very upset when they look at the Democrat candidates standing on that stage making fools out of themselves, and they say, ‘If we ever have a president like this.’ And there’s always a possibility. It’s an election, you know. Who knows what happens, right? I think we’re going to win. I think we’re going to win by a lot. But when they look at the statements made by the people standing behind those podiums, I think that has a huge effect, yeah.
Imagine the crazy statements that could undermine the country’s and the markets’ faith in a presidency — like suggesting we nuke hurricanes, or threatening to shut down the entire U.S.-Mexico border, or saying we should double our already damaging Chinese tariffs, or claiming we have planes that are literally invisible, or warning the nation about windmill cancer, or calling one’s national security adviser in the middle of the night to ask him what a strong dollar does.
Just imagine if we ever had a president like that.
For the record, the Dow dropped 1,911 points on Monday and Tuesday prior to last night’s Democratic debate. Today, apparently reassured by the prospect of one of those Democrats becoming president and restoring sanity to the White House (let’s just say that’s what happened, because you can say anything now), it dropped just 123 points, despite continuing fears about the global coronavirus outbreak.
So, yeah, just more gibber-gabber from the gabbering-gibberer-in-chief.
Is Trump still chafing your arse-cheeks? Then Dear Fcking Lunatic: 101 Obscenely Rude Letters to Donald Trump and its boffo sequels Dear Prsident A**clown: 101 More Rude Letters to Donald Trump and Dear F*cking Moron: 101 More Letters to Donald Trump by Aldous J. Pennyfarthing are the pick-me-up you need! Reviewers have called these books “hysterically funny,” “cathartic,” and “laugh-out-loud” comic relief. And they’re way, way cheaper than therapy.
