Trump’s winning, but scorekeepers give no credit

Well, the Tariff Terror was short-lived when it comes to the stock market.

The Dow shot up 336 points on Monday, with another 150+ points in Tuesday’s pre-market futures.

The breaking news of North Korea seeking face-to-face peace talks with the US also takes stock market threat level down a few notches.

The first news reports out of South Korea that North Korea is willing to give up its nuclear weapons if the safety of Kim Jong Un’s regime is guaranteed, give little credit to the Trump Administration for getting its stated objective before talks could begin.

The warming comes two weeks after Trump representatives including Vice President Mike Pence and Ivanka Trump were in South Korea for the Olympic games.

Just like the Tariff Terror narrative, it will be very easy to be for the peace initiative when you see who is lined up against it.

As I said Monday, the Oscars telecast probably suffered from the #NotMe movement sweeping through the middle of America.

Well the rating numbers are in and the telecast had the lowest number of viewers ever and it’s the largest year-over-year drop ever.

I wrote a lots of evers there, yet Hollywood still believes its speaking for America, when in fact it really only resonates with the liberal cities on both coasts.
