Watch Live as Trump Emits a Stream of Bad Craziness

YouTube

These are some of the bizarre and demented things this horrible human being has already said in this press conference:

He’s getting more out there every single day. How long is this going to go on, and how much more damage is he going to be allowed to do to the US and the world?

Since we’re closing out the other thread:

re: #217 HappyWarrior

Oh come the fuck on. That’s literally what he was doing.

I’m pretty sure that what McCarthy’s going to try to stand on is that the President has no political rival until after the Dem National Convention.

Which if true would mean that all future presidents could do whatever they wanted to sabotage the primary run of any candidate they felt had even a snowball’s chance of defeating them, so the part I’m most furious about is that no one came back and stated that to KevMac later in the conference.

(altered to make the statement about “all presidents” gender-neutral).

I’m getting text spam on my phone now to STOP IMPEACHMENT. They are trying to get me to call Rep. Sherrill (D-NJ) and provide his phone. The origin is various 800 numbers so I can’t block.

And to be fair, the only part of that word that never pops up in any French dialect is the “t” at the end being pronounced. I think it’s Provencal that does have it end in “awl” rather than “o”.

Not only for abandoning the Kurds, but weakening our standing in the world and enabling Russia.

And now the weather:

Meteorologists forecasting bombogenesis with the nor’easter about to hit the NYC metro area, which means significant strengthening in a short period of time, serious flooding and damaging winds.

Bombogenesis happens when “a midlatitude cyclone rapidly intensifies, dropping at least 24 millibars over 24 hours,” according to NOAA. This extreme and rapid change in pressure forms a very strong storm, a so-called “bomb cyclone.”

Most people’s retirement accounts these days in the US are 401(k)s, with most of those holding shares in mutual funds, which, in turn, hold shares of individual companies.

from 2017 - it looks like about 32% have 401k plans

it’s surprising to learn that the average American does not, in fact, have a 401(k) — especially given the number of employees who have the option to participate in one.

According to data from the U.S. Census Bureau, only 32% of Americans are saving for retirement in a 401(k). Granted, that owes partly to the fact that 401(k)s are employer-dependent, and not every company offers one.

Data from the Census Bureau suggests that as little as 14% of all employers offer a 401(k), yet Census researchers recently estimated that 79% of Americans work for an employer that sponsors a 401(k)-style retirement plan. How is that possible? Large companies that employ high numbers of workers are the most likely to sponsor retirement plans.

All that said, not everyone who’s offered an employer-sponsored plan actually takes advantage of it. Of those 79% of Americans who get the choice to fund a 401(k), only 41% opt to participate. As such, just 32% of the total workforce is saving in a 401(k).

Let me reword it: for those who have access to (generally through their employer) and who do save to a retirement account, what I described in my previous post is generally how 401(k)s work.

re: #109 DangerMan

According to politfact:

despite the fact that almost half of all households owned stock shares either directly or indirectly through mutual funds, trusts, or various pension accounts, the richest 10 percent of households controlled 84 percent of the total value of these stocks in 2016

So, (edited) ~ 50%, and the richest 10% owned 84% of the total value of the stock.

Folks who can’t afford an emergency fund of even $500 aren’t going to be owning stocks, let alone retirement accounts. That’s one of the reasons why there’s a push to get people to automatically invest in 401(k) accounts offered by their employers (not all employers offer, let alone provide company match), so they can begin to build up a retirement nest egg. People don’t save, and studies show the easiest way to do it is to automatically deduct and invest. If you require someone to manually select to invest in a 401(k), there’s far less likelihood that they’ll do so.

A pathetic statement considering that Turkey is a NATO member country. Trump just gave Russia a huge win here, as Trump accelerates the unraveling of our alliances and strategic partnership through his sheer dumbfuckery.

re: #112 TedStriker

Let me reword it: for those who have access to (generally through their employer) and who do save to a retirement account, what I described in my previous post is generally how 401(k)s work.

I have to say, looking at that story Belafon posted, that’s depressing, but 2000 people also seems to be a pretty small sample size.

on this you are exactly right

i googled “what percentage of americans own stock” and three articles put it at just over 50%

so to trumps point: more than half. even a majority. not nearly everyone.

Yeah, it’s legit. And it’s legitimately all kinds of fucked up beyond all recognition.

Trump is completely off the rails, and is desperate to do something here. He doesn’t even know what that something is, but Erdogan is essentially telling Trump to pound sand and Erdogan can ask for whatever he wants, knowing Trump is likely to cave. Empty threats are just that. Erdogan knows Trump’s full of hot air.

Once again, Trump’s leaving the US weaker and Putin couldn’t be happier.

Hoyer cited a spate of recent court cases stemming from congressional investigations into Trump in which judges have upheld the House’s subpoena authority as a reason why the chamber does not need to turn to inherent contempt.

Trump, unsurprisingly, doesn’t know what the word strategic means. Telling the entire world that you can’t trust America to live up its agreements, to support you or back you up when the going gets tough is a strategic catastrophe. Which he’s been doing for the past 1,000 days.

re: #109 DangerMan

from 2017 - it looks like about 32% have 401k plans

individual can invest ira money in mutual funds as well. i cant find any statistics on that

so it’s not everyone. and it’s not even half, likely

People whose unions have retirement plans are also indirectly in the stock market.

On the other hand, some of us with shitloads of money and/or houses that have appreciated considerably, who won big with stock market increases and capital gains reductions… would happily trade every single dollar of that windfall (and then some) to return to the Better Timeline that never had a Trump presidency.
