Trump is an f'ng disaster.

Well, when you're dealing with Dumb Trump who knows nothing other than what his gut is telling him and then listens to extremists with long sticks up their butts on this issue, you're not going to get good policy.

How much lower? At least another 15%. We'll hit bottom at about 17,000 - IF WE'RE LUCKY. Remember, we've got a moron in the WH and lunatics as advisers - and that isn't changing for two years. Why should anyone have confidence with morons at the helm? If I had new money to invest, I wouldn't be planning to do so until the Trump clown show is voted out.

I raise those odds to 95%. Seriously. Complete incompetence in this Admin with a kid at the wheel. Nothing good is coming until Trump is gone - and sadly, we're in for a lot more bad. This nightmare isn't over for another two years.

We hit bottom at about 17,000 - probably got about another three-six months of this pain - IF WE'RE LUCKY. Remember, we've got a moron in the WH and lunatics as advisers.

When Trumpies are giving out stock market advice you know we're in for a rough ride. Trumpies are like Joe Kennedy's shoe shine boy.

Just wait until January - the carnage will continue. All manmade - which is what is so infuriating. And, it all started with TARIFFS - an issue that cannot be settled quickly and will be very harmful to the US - farmers and business - over time. Chinese will never be good actors on intellectual property issues - so it's a loser. I don't think we're winning this one - it has gone on too long.

Yep, there goes my 401K down the tubes. Thanks, Trump! Plus insomnia over fearing what awful decision he will make next!

Plunging stock market
High national deficit
Tariff wars
Job loss
Looming recession
Government shutdown
No action on the VA
Tax cuts for the wealthy
Border Wall con
High turnover in the administration
Shady dealings with foreign dictators
Bad relationship with allies
Twitter tantrums and bullying (So much for Melania's antibully online campaign- Be Best)

All this and more in 2 years folks, we were better under Obama for 8 years!

When did Individual 1 ever win? Never. He just found people to fall for this con.
