Had this bad feeling and listened to you. You were right.

Leveraged everything and shorted the market before the impeachment started. Dumped the girlfriend, quit my job, and listed the house.

Fast forward. Sitting on about $4M in a cheap apartment near Dulles. I have no fucking idea what I'm going to do now, but thanks.

Congratulations. Be honest though.

Did the fact that Trump has been bankrupt a million times help give you the extra push?

S&P 500 is down about 250 points from where it was before impeachment started (about 10%). You're a real Gordon Gecko.

Even worse, he lost out on the 35% gain from the low on March 23rd. And the that index (S&P 500) is down about 7.5% from where it was at the beginning of Dec (before the impeachment started), not 10%. It's only down 8.5% from it's record high.

Don't know about the cost/benefit of dumping his girlfriend, quitting his job or selling his house but I wouldn't take stock advice from the OP.

Even before the virus, Trump kept touting ho great the economy was, but the reality is only the stock market was doing well. This was due to the huge corporate tax cuts that were supposed to trickle down to the average American, but never did. The corps just bought back shares of stock and gave themselves bonuses. This is what kept the stock market going.

The unemployment numbers were deceptive as well, because stagnant wages could not keep up with cost of living increases/ child care, more people were taking multiple jobs.

By giving the big tax cuts to corps, it means the USA no longer gets all that money, so we either have to cut spending or go deeper in debt. Spending increased substantially under Trump, so we were in deep to the mob.

If you're wondering why Trump has been criticizing China so much lately, it's because he's considering defaulting on their loan. This is what Trump does, he borrows money and never pays it back. He took huge personal loans from Russia and could not pay them back, which is why so many people think he struck a deal with Putin. Now we're hearing he may have personal loans with China as well.

So the virus definitely hurt the economy, but it was bad and getting worse on its own before all this.

Why the crickets.

Trumptards are bound to respond with "he's richer than you" or "his daddy only gave him a million $ and he turned that into over a billion, so get bent" but what Trumptards seem to leave out is that real estate is probably the easiest sector to win at and not fuck it up. Trump sits on probably the most lucrative real estate market their is in the world. He could literally do/say anything stupid and it wouldn't effect his asset's value and it wouldn't change the fact that people want to live in NYC and ergo, need somewhere to live. Outside of that, He's one of the biggest fuckups in American business that anyone can name.
