Credit Josh Brown with the quip above. I thought it was the best of what I’ve seen this afternoon. It made me laugh.
In any case, we learned something from the president’s decision to shutdown the government, only to reopen it 35 days later, at great expense to the American taxpayers:
- It was stupid, as I pointed out earlier.
- If you give them enough time, bullies almost always cave. You just have to be patient.
- The North Koreans and Chinese must be delighted. It confirms everything their intelligence communities must have already told them about the phony Art of the Deal guy.
When you put a con artist in high places, this is what you get.
