On can make the claim that the only barometer of winning in the age of Preznint Stupid is the stock market; he tweets about it almost as much as he tweets about himself! It’s like they are the Coriscan Brothers, amiright?
So how did his red-haired shitgibbon twin do when Hair Führer started threatening nuclear war with North Korea?
U.S. stocks fell and a measure of equity volatility spiked higher after President Donald Trump delivered a warning to North Korea amid rising tensions between the nations. Treasuries slipped, while the yen strengthened.
The S&P 500 Index fell to session lows and the CBOE Volatility Index jumped 11 percent shortly before 3:30 p.m. in New York when Trump said further threats from the country would be met with “fire and fury.” The comments jolted markets from a summer slumber, with U.S. assets largely little changed for most of the session. The 10-year Treasury yield rose. Crude retreated toward $49 a barrel.
Notice that the Yen strengthened? CURRENCY MANIPULATION!!1! Perhaps Robert Mueller should look into Comrade Stupid’s holdings in China.
