Trump reportedly angry at Kushner over coronavirus screw-ups

The redoubtable Gabriel Sherman has yet another dispatch from the D.C. extension of the Trump Clown School. This time, it appears that Grampa Rage Diapers is peeved at his son-in-law, who insinuated himself into the White House CoronaShitShow last week and made a right mess of things. Vanity Fair: “In the last 48 hours [Trump]…

Behold! The worst-aging tweet in the history of tweets!

This was Donald Trump on Saturday, pumping up a stock market that’s dropping faster than Americans’ jaws every time his poor man’s Mayor McCheese head shows up on their teevee screens: BIGGEST STOCK MARKET RISE IN HISTORY YESTERDAY! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 14, 2020 That tweet came following the market action on Friday, when the…

Fox's Trish Regan goes cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs over legitimate coronavirus concerns

This is really something. Most soap opera stars would think this is over the top: x You gotta watch this, I mean……..you just gotta watch pic.twitter.com/x2ZsayVrmv— Andrew Lawrence (@ndrew_lawrence) March 10, 2020 < p class=”is-empty-p”> TRISH REGAN, Fox Business: “The chorus of hate being leveled at the president is nearing a crescendo as Democrats blame…

Round up your prayer circles, folks: Pence put in charge of coronavirus response

You might also want to put on your fanciest snake-handlin’ pants, because the guy who doesn’t believe in natural selection (i.e., the mechanism behind the mutation of viruses and bacteria) is now in charge of our country’s response to the global COVID-19 outbreak. Yay! The Washington Post: Trump announced at a news conference that Vice President Pence…

Trump's stock market lies prevent it from growing because it's Moloch's fault

If you believe that Individual-1 has altruistically helped the US stock market since inauguration, you might believe we Democrats worship Moloch, just like we treat the free market like Baal or so many pagan idols. Fox News should be ashamed of itself for firing Todd Starnes, since he only has borne false witness by publishing numerous stories based…

The pathetically weak Trump stock market in three easy-to-read charts

Well, it’s weak compared to the stock market returns under the Kenyan socialist America-hating usurper Barack Obama, anyway. Lots of caveats go with this, of course. The stock market is a pretty poor metric of real economic prosperity, as most of its gains go to the already wealthy — and millions of Americans own no equities…

Stock market dips on some worrying economic data, Trumpian unforced errors

So this happened today: Given the volatility in the stock market of late, today’s 300-point pratfall isn’t all that noteworthy. But what’s a bit more concerning is the likely reason. While investor jitters over Donald Trump’s inane economic policies have made the market vacillate over the past year like a Home Depot paint mixer, this latest move may…

Now Trump is screwing up the Asian markets too

In the wake of media reports that China imported exactly zero U.S. soybeans in November (down from 4.7 million tons in November 2017) because of Donald Trump’s regrettable trade war — and following yesterday’s Trump-induced stock market plunge — Asian stocks took a tumble today. Seems Trump’s Christmas gift to the world was actually a regift….
