Donald Trump’s White House obviously has no idea what it’s like to have your entire livelihood threatened. As stocks jerked up and down Wednesday, a White House reporter asked Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders if Trump was “worried that this saber rattling is causing many people in this country to lose money.”

Obviously not, was her answer:

“We may have a little bit of short-term pain but we’re certainly going to have long-term success.”

Hey, no worries, guys—there may be a few less meals on the table, some missed mortgage payments, and a bankruptcy-inducing health incident or two. But in the end, your personal pain will be so worth it for the country. Thanks in advance for understanding!

I’ve read the book, “Fire & Fury.” I’ve encouraged the publisher to have a follow-up book written, that would probably also be a non-fiction best seller. I don’t think that Mr. Trump will be impeached. The process may start in the House, (Upon completion of the Mueller investigation.) but I doubt that the Senate will have the 2/3 vote required. I don’t think the Mr. Trump has done anything right. The wall between the U.S. and Mexico is ridiculous.

He is going to appease American farmers by talking to them like a dentist getting ready to extract a tooth?
He is the infection that needs to be extracted!
