THANKS, DONALD!:

Trump Ties Presidency to Stock Market (Heather Long, 10/15/17, The Washington Post)

President Donald Trump seems to have another obsession: The stock market. He mentions it almost daily now, touting how the Dow Jones industrial average -- a popular U.S. stock market indicator -- is up 25 percent since Election Day.

It's almost as if, in Trump's mind, the stock market is his report card. At a time when the polls give him about a 40 percent approval rating, he seems to view the market as giving him a standing ovation.

To be fair, the fact that the Deep State has stopped him from doing any damage has allowed him to enjoy the legacy of W and the UR's economy. And doing nothing at a time when nothing need be done is creditworthy, no matter how you achieve it.
