Sen. Loeffler, who dumped stocks after virus warning, joins Trump's 'reopening America' task force

2 min read

I know Trump doesn’t always consider optics when making his absurd decisions, but this looks like a huge pile of shite to me:



p class=”is-empty-p”>

Step 1 for safely reentering the workforce: Join Congress, glean some valuable insider information, and then dump all your stocks before the market crashes so you don’t have to look for a new job.

That’s, well, pretty much it.

As you may have heard, Loeffler was among the members of Congress who sold stocks in the wake of a scary coronavirus briefing, presumably in anticipation of the financial bloodbath that seemed destined to follow. In fact, she sold $20 million in stock. 


Loeffler and her husband, who is the CEO of a company that owns the New York Stock Exchange, dumped millions of dollars in shares after she attended a closed-door Senate briefing on the coronavirus in January. The couple also picked up investments in companies that have benefited in the pandemic.

So there you go. 

Of course, if the U.S. could convert to an entirely insider-trading-based economy, Loeffler’s insight might be valuable. As it is, this looks like just another fuck-you from the White House to your house.

Enjoy those stimulus dollars, y’all. Maybe Kelly has a hot stock tip she can give you to convert that $1,200 into millions.

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.
