The Fed cut interest rates by half a point. The stock markets (-1.5%) and I are waiting for the excuse on that.

Dow -785.91 -2.94%
S&P -86.86 -2.81%
Nasdaq -268.07 -2.99%

Complete waste of a valuable tool. Like somebody said this morning, you don't use a liquidity hammer on a virus-shaped nail.

Kinda sort of a WTF and why I think law is so interesting:

The 9th Circuit is reviewing the case of a guy arrested for marijuana possession in California by a California cop under the federal statute. Hmmmm. :-k

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Well we're considering different things. But we're also considering the fact that last year you had approximately 36,000 deaths due to what's called the flu. And when I first heard this four, five, six weeks ago, when I was hearing the amount of people that died from the flu, I was shocked to hear it. Anywhere from 27,000, to 70,000 or 77,000 and I guess they said in 1990 -- that was a particularly very bad -- it was higher than that. As of the time I left the plane with you, we had 240 cases -- that's at least what was on a very fine network known as Fox News. I know you love it. But that's what I happened to be watching. And how was the show last night? Did it get good ratings, by the way?

REPORTER: I don't know.

TRUMP: Oh really? I heard it broke all ratings records but maybe that's wrong. That's what they told me. I can't imagine that happened.

I get giddy thinking about the prospects of having a native English speaker in the White House next year.

Wouldn't it would be nice to have a leader who isn't "shocked" about the number of annual influenza deaths in his own damn country as well?

Times like this reveal why Trump is POTUS. Decent people expect to see logic, reason, organization, data and basic heath guidelines to deal with the crisis. Trump and his supporters see other opportunity to create chaos. People looking for leadership get frustrated and that is all the gratification these fools need. It's always about the troll.

When I read that latest example of Trump's rambling I think of Professor Irwin Corey.

Except Trump isn't doing a shtick.
They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

Stranding thousands of human beings on a floating petri dish in order to protect his coronavirus numbers. And saying it out loud. Unbelievable.

I think this may be a more concerning example of rambling....,



Except Trump isn't doing a shtick. How does one decipher if one is truly doing a shtick? Can you tell if Biden is performing one almost daily now... real or not? Whatcha think...?

Can you tell us the oranges of these clips?

Mental acuity and nepotism are NOT recommended issues for your boy to be challenging anyone on.

Oh man....

I’m not normally one to demean and ridicule older people for their age-related issues but I can’t help but feel a little schadenfreude over that pic, only because it’s Trump.

It may be just a shadow, but we know what he'd say if it really happened to somebody he thought of as a political opponent.

The sister/ wife confusion was because they switched places behind him. Total nothing burger. But conservatives are claiming dementia.

Trump fiddling while people die? Trump fiddling while the stock market crashes? Trump fiddling while the ten-year bond loses half its value? Trump fiddling while oil workers get laid of?

It's supposed to be funny? I don't get it.

Yeah, he would have had to claim he grabs women by the kitty cat to get your vote...

Seriously SK, why is it that you only worry about the mental competence of the Democrat? Did you have the same concerns about Sarah Palin?

SK80, you forgot to mention that the first video was indeed very deceptive.
