It is a strange man who believes in some singular bizarre political ideology called Sortition, a theory that advocates the random selection of government officials [of any party I guess? to be blown up I guess?]

So much so that last year 3 of their journalists had to resign for false Russia collusion stories.
And there are many more examples where no one resigned such as Donald Jnr advanced notice of Wikileaks story which was also redacted when shown to be untrue, and recently the Michael Cohen story where he is supposedly said he has proof Trump knew about the Trump tower Russia Lawyer meeting. Cohen and his lawyer say that story is also untrue.
Her link (usual alt tights scutterring lie spreader site) said it was clearly "due to Democrats inciting acts of violence".
Neither claim is true.
Either accept that or slink away (the preferred Dame strategy after she drops yet another idiotic alt right claim without any support)
If Trump thinks firing the Chairman of the FOMC will do anything other than send markets into a tailspin he is an even bigger imbecile than I thought.
Whoever Trump subsequently appoints would be seen by markets as a joke, the autonomy and credibility of the FOMC shattered forever.
All Trump is doing here is setting out his stall, that if an economic slowdown comes he not only blames someone else, but suggests he could have kept it going with his unique formula of "permanently lower interest rates and massive tax cuts"
It's like a homeopath blaming an oncologist who has kept someone with pancreatic cancer alive for 5 years, suggesting his solution of carefully administered doses of wolf's bane would have ensured 50 more years of good health
On a serious note, just how difficult must it be for highly qualified, hugely experienced and intelligent people like Powell to work with Trump and his simpleton "solutions" ("why don't we just print trillions of dollars and use it to pay off all our debt") to everything?
In fact, how hard must it be for people like this not to burst out laughing in his face?

Stock markets are now falling sharply after earlier stabilizing and even went positive after the open.
Then the simpleton Trump started mouthing off about the Fed and even mooting possibility of sacking its chairman for doing his job instead of what Trump wants him to do,.
Cue market jitters and sell off
