Fox: "Dow 'BLASTS' Through The 21,00 Mark On Optimism After Trump's Speech."



Switched on Fox News today and saw Brett 'Cheeta' Baeir gleefully proclaim:

"Stock surged today just hours after President Trump’s first speech to Congress. Optimism prevailed on Wallstreet as the Dow blasted through the 21,000 mark."


Um...you might want to re-think whether that's really worth the change of underwear, Brett. Let's take a look at the Dow Jones Index this week...

The Dow closed at 20750 just before Trump's speech, and closed at 21113 the day after his speech.

...that's a 1.75% "surge." Congratulations.

Still, that's a good start for a kid like you. Now, call us when you bring the Dow from 7062 to 19732 (a 180% increase) the way OBAMA did.

Still, I'm a little puzzled by the fact that Fox didn't get excited when the Dow, under President Obama....
