Dow drops nearly 800 points after Trump calls himself 'Tariff Man'

2 min read

Early this morning, Donald Trump tweeted some homespun wisdom:

And then this happened:


Tariff Man is by far the worst new Marvel character ever. And they actually had a supervillain named Asbestos Lady. (Not to be confused with Asbestos Man, who is also Trump.)

I could write a long, very trenchant diary about how tariffs don’t work and Trump has the policy instincts of a dying sea cucumber, but what’s the point, really? (For one thing, foreign countries don’t pay our tariffs; we do.)

Instead, how about an infinite regression of Trump taco bowl brains?



Yo! Dear F*cking Lunatic: 101 Obscenely Rude Letters to Donald Trump by Aldous J. Pennyfarthing is now available at Amazon! Buy there (or at one of the other fine online retailers carrying it), or be square.


But wait, there’s more! The Fierce, Fabulous (and Mostly Fictional) Adventures of Mike Ponce, America’s First Gay Vice President is also available at Amazon! You can get two great political humor ebooks for less than the price of the coffee you’ll be spitting out on your tablet when you read them!
