Donald Trump's Day of Total Economic Humiliation
It had to be one of the funniest days in the ghastly presidency of Donald Trump. And for the bloated orange oaf, one of his most humiliating.
For there he was yesterday afternoon in a factory in Ohio, bragging about his economic record.
While claiming he was "non-braggadocious."
But still managing to accuse the Democrats who hadn't applauded his State of the Union address of being "treasonous."
But sadly for Trump, even as he blasted hot air out of every orifice, what he couldn't see but those watching on TV could, was that the stock market was tanking.
And after all that non-braggadocious bragging.
President Trump and congressional Republicans have spent much of the past year trying to connect a giddy stock market rally with their economic agenda, but stocks’ precipitous plunge in the past five days has delivered a sobering reality: What goes up can come back down — quickly and with little warning.
He won't be bragging about this:
With Monday’s steep fall, Trump has presided over the biggest stock market drop in U.S. history, when measured by points in the Dow Jones industrial average.
Unless of course he wants to look even more like a clown than he already does...
Which would be difficult, but as Stephen Colbert points out, definitely not impossible.
You know, I'm pretty sure that President Ding Dong is going to end up behind bars sooner or later.
And I have to admit I'm looking forward to that wonderful day.
But as for what will bring about his final humiliation, only time will tell...
