I should revise what I said - it had been going up for the last 9 years...until 4 months ago

The DJIA is up almost a thousand points in the last three days on disappointing jobs numbers and threats of potentially bigly harmful tariffs on imports from Mexico (and the potential collapse of his NAFTA v. 1.1 agreement). Investors are taking it as a sign that the Fed will be forced to cut interest rates. I know Tariff Man doesn't have the brainpower to manipulate the Fed on purpose but that's sure what he's doing.

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.

No, it's fake. It was made by a guy in England. Easy check is that Twitter had a 140 character limit in 2015.

Checking the DJIA futures before I go to bed: Down 270 points. Maybe there's hope - it was down 400 last night.

Hey, but the good news is that oil hasn't been this low since July 2017.

** Oop! Shouldn't have spoken. There's -400. Then -460. Going to bed now. Wake me when it's over.

Down over 1,000 earlier, now rallying to "only" 800 down...way to inspire confidence, Don

Up to -600. I saw on TV last night that Japan has started Spring Break early and closed schools until April Can you imagine if we did that here?

Eleven new cases in San Antonio.

Wondering when the Dems ARE going to politicize this and compare their public option/M4A plans to Republicans' GoFundMe For All plan.

The WaPo is reporting travel restrictions.
Right before White House’s news conference, health officials in Washington State confirmed that a person diagnosed with coronavirus in the state’s King County had died. 

President Trump described the patient as a “wonderful woman” and a “medically high-risk patient” in her late 50s, at a news conference at the White House. Jeffrey Duchin, chief health officer for Seattle and King County, later said the patient was a MAN in his 50s with underlying conditions. 
I changed the word "man" to all caps.

The market rallied from a 52 wk low to close at a level that is about 70 points higher than the value of what it was the day Trump was sworn in.

I have to give him some kind of credit. I thought there was no one who could destroy an economy like 'W' did. It took 'W' seven years to blow up the Clinton boom. Trump blew up the Obama boom in about half the time.

I disagree. We have had other public health crises in the past. The difference is we had coherent leadership that did NOT cause panic in the markets.

He likes to take credit for all the gains. He also gets credit for the losses.

I've spent the last few years cursing him every time he's taken credit for the bull market so I'm not going to blame him for the bear now...at least I won't have to listen to him congratulating himself for the sunrise anymore
