Stock Market Milestones and Donald Trump, Explained [cartoon]

Is the performance of the stock market inversely related to the mental health of the President of the United States? This chart suggests it is so. Cartoon by TED RALL.

The big records set by the Dow Jones Industrial Average under Pres. Donald Trump (20,000 in 2017, 25,000 in 2018) serve as a reminder that the stock market seems to reward presidential weirdness over competence and sanity.

Sorry, Jimmy Carter.

For aNewDomain, this is Ted Rall.
