Apologies for the source, I appreciate some on here are easily triggered.:

BREAKING NEWS: Donald Trump unveils coronavirus bailout plan with payroll tax cut and help for hourly workers to be able to take time off sick as he admits being 'blindsided' after stock market plunge

  • Trump unveils first attempt to arrest a plunging stock market with plan for payroll tax cut
  • Said there would be help for hourly workers so they can take time off from work without being penalized
  • But never used the word coronavirus then stormed out of the room instead of answering questions
  • Will meet Republican senators Tuesday for talks on payroll move
  • Dow Jones plunged more than 2,000 points in biggest point drop in history - and at one point trading was halted because of the precipitous sell-off
  • Press briefing was first appearance by Trump or any of his officials designed to calm the markets
  • Among those present were Steve Mnuchin the treasury secretary; he had used the day for an unannounced meeting with Russia's ambassador to the U.S.
  • Trump referred to it as 'the virus that everybody is talking about'

It took me three reads to notice the "it" in that. I knew it wouldn't be that so read again, and then again.

Why do we need a stimulus package if this is merely the "Fake News Media" and "The Democrat (sic) Party" inflaming things?

Lack of self awarness, and ignorant of basic popular culture. As Nero fiddles, he retweeted this. ( I had to go to Twitter myself before I believed he retweeted this.)

But then again - I lost 40% in 2009; I sat tight with my investments, and gained 25% back in 2010, 12% in 2011, and 12% in 2013, so by 2014 I was back in the black. Now that I'm actually retired, I will bite my nails a bit more aggressively ...
