Trump: Investors Should Sue ABC Over “False” Report

The Washington Examiner reports:

President Trump suggested investors who lost money when the stock market fell following ABC’s erroneous report alleging Trump told Mike Flynn to make contact with the Russians as a candidate sue the reporter who made the error.

Ross’ report — later corrected to state Trump asked Flynn to make contact with the Russians when he was president-elect — fueled a volatile day on Wall Street. The market closed down 40 points, but at one point dropped 350 points after the report was published.

    I think u missed a word, joe 🙂
    Should SUE. 🙂

  • worstcultever

    Well, I’m filled with foreboding this Sunday morning. I still think we haven’t even BEGUN to see the poison and destruction Dumpy is capable of – and how invested the MSM still are in his ghastly reality show rather than the realities of our world.

    That said, (happy thought) I still think Doug Jones is gonna win. And I’m gonna KEEP saying it.

    Anyway – (Judy Tenuta voice) – good morning, pigs!

  • Harveyrabbit

    The market dipped briefly but closed just below the previous day’s closing price so most investors “may” have lost a tiny amount of money but no more than the average day as the market rises and lowers for many reasons. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/a2a4bee195d0254bbf2c7cc13c881aeb418304dc86ac8f620826d9b79e33728b.png

      Its 2017. Get out of here with your logic, reason and facts

    • SFBruce

      Fact, especially those demonstrated in fancy charts, are so elitist.

    • bzrd

      it used to be people invested in businesses for the long haul, not the day trader stuff; they road the waves up and down. No one lost any money unless they sold low and bought high

      • Harveyrabbit

        Exactly esp now with high frequency trading many made a lot of money on the dip and rise.

  • SFBruce

    Another day, another opportunity to undermine the press. Everyone knows that endangers our democracy, but little Donnie’s ego demands feeding. That ridiculous tweet about suing ABC shows how completely unfit Donnie is to lead the country.

    He is misusing his political office to hurt his specific personal enemies. He is utterly disgusting.

    Can we sue the GOP when we lose money under their tax bill?

    • jerry

      Hell, there should have been a class-action suit from the entire country for their Wall St. deregulation policies that led to the last meltdown.

    Am I wrong to be disturbed that investors respond to things that are remotely connected to business?

    Can I sue the US Government, Bush, Cheney, Condie Rice, et al for the lies that got the US into a multi-trillion dollar unnecessary war and wasted my tax dollars?

      Is this a class action thing ?

    • kaydenpat

      Class action lawsuit would be necessary. We all could sue for that.

      • lattebud

        Or each citizen sue in small claims court and make the answer to each case in each jurisdiction…..

    • Xuuths

      Unfortunately, no, you can’t sue them.

      • yeah–one of the things American Indians learned a long time ago…

  • JT

    Pure fascism at work: stock market conjecture as reasons for preventing free speech and investigative reporting issued by a well-established and inveterate liar.

  • Michael R

    It sounds almost as bad as Trump University

  • TexasBoy

    Dear Donald, if one segment on ONE network can make he stock market drop 350 points, then the financial system is in a lot worse shape than you care to admit. You have just admitted what I have suspected, that the modern stock market is not based upon the true value of a company, but solely on rumor an innuendo.

    • worstcultever

      Isn’t the whole stock market just propped on on bullshit stock buybacks and other 1% chicanery at this point?

      • Ragnar Lothbrok

        purt much

    • CB

      That’s always been the case. More so in recent years.

    • canoebum

      The true value of a company ceased to be a factor on Wall Street decades ago. Casinos in Las Vegas have basically the same set up as Wall Street, but generally the people you find there are having more fun, and they don’t close at 4 pm.

  • dogdadny

    And how many times has the market dropped because of one of the numerous tweets or dumb statements you have made? Or the staff you hired? Or what you have done to America’s reputation and our relationships with our allies? Or the fact YES FACT that you committed TREASON by doing what ever Putin asked you to in return for him being your actual CAMPAIGN MANAGER?

      I saw Matt Schlapp(?), the organiser of C-PAC, on C-SPAN this morning. He was desperately, desperately, desperately trying to get the Mueller investigation linked into Clinton.

      Even more ludicrously, he was almost begging to make Obama responsible for Flynn.

      • Boreal

        They’ve got nothing. For a long time their lies about Clinton and Obama had traction, no more. They own everything and are growing more desperate with each new revelation about their treason.

        • Dazzer

          I know. I was struck by the edge of desperation in his whole schtick. And he was clearly someone who has been schooled to the utmost level in managing TV appearances.

          • RoFaWh

            He needs people to turn to him, wherever he goes, and ask “Why not just tell the truth for a change?”

    • Joe in PA
      • RoFaWh

        I’ve said more than once that Mrs. Clinton would have made an extremely competent President, even if she were on the boring side.

        But I wonder if, had she been elected, we’d be treated to news of her cutting up on the dance floor: “Look at that girl go!”

        I suspect there’s a great deal to Hillary’s personality that we don’t know much about.

  • vorpal

    I just can’t stomach any more of his constant bullshit.

    • Joe in PA

      Please don’t throw up. 🙁

      • RoFaWh

        Or if you must, do it on top of the compost heap.

    • JCF

      Walk away, vorpal. Breathe. “Just for today…” [Just for this hour, minute, breath…]

  • Gerry Fisher

    How about investors suing you for failing to hire all the best people and hiring people Flynn instead?

  • worstcultever

    So when’s the Mueller firing gonna happen, which will amount to Dump declaring himself the only law? You know it’s coming. And (despite the predictions that it would be a political firestorm, the end of him, etc etc) what are the odds of that too becoming just the new normal?

    • Joe in PA

      He missed his parallel “Saturday Night Massacre” last night. 🙁

    • Dazzer

      I’m watching C-SPAN at the moment. The Trump supporters are infinitely too ignorant to do anything except listen to the voices in their own heads.

      They are incapable of seeing anything other than the hairs on their noses.

    • Boreal
      • Joe in PA

        Thanks.

        From the article: …and whether Congress—the only body with the constitutional power and obligation to rein Trump in from his rampage—will do anything to stand up to him.

        Bwahahahahaha….as if. 🙁

        We have a rally just 20 minutes away.

  • TexasBoy

    So, Donald, you’re saying the financial system is collapsing during your watch? I wonder what it will be called. The Trump Slump, the Trump Crash, or maybe the Trump Disaster…much like the great Depression is also referred to as “The Hoover Depression.” Presidents are remembered in a poor light if Wall Street collapses during their term. The difference is we have whining cry baby in office that wants to blame everyone else. Hoover didn’t do that.

    • Ben in Oakland

      Damn you liberals. You know nothing. It’s all Obama’s fault.

      • RoFaWh

        What would the GOP do without having Obama and the Clintons as scapegoats?

        Who would they blame their madness on then?

        • Ben in Oakland

          It’s the party of personal responsibility. They will find someone (else) to blame.

  • GayOldLady

    I believe the Stock Market dip had more to do with the Senate roller coaster over the tax bill than anything ABC reported. Trump causes the Stock Market to go down every time he posts war like threat tweets toward North Korea. Maybe we should all sue him. The crazy Bastard is going to Kill Us All.

  • BearEyes

    So will he encourage suing the GOP when their welfare for the rich plan tanks the economy?

  • BeaverTales

    I miss the days when the stock market didn’t determine our political decisions, and vice versa.

    Mammon is America’s Godhead and the DJIA is its Bible. Everyone in the middle class became a millionaire on paper simply by buying a house while Greenspan became America’s prophet…er…profit. The TBTFs matter more than the rest of us.

    The Fed is running out of bullets by devaluing the dollar with a reckless QE policy, and we can’t expect Asia or Europe to keep us afloat like they did in 2007. Our economy is all just a Ponzi scheme… and if you joined the asset class late you’re gonna lose your shirt if when it all crashes down again.

    • David L. Caster

      Money is a convenient fiction. Most of what one thinks of as wealth today is just ones and zeros on some magnetic or electronic media. For instance, the “value” of your house if you own one is purely notional until it is under a sales contract in escrow, and even then the value of the net proceeds of the sale while fungible are still dependent on the perception of the value of the currency in which they are denominated—all determined by market value.

  • shellback

    Hey, Dotard Dump, do us all a favor and shut the fuck up, then go play golf in a thunderstorm.

    • architect_tim

      hell no, keep the tweets going. They maybe the most solid evidence how bat-shit crazy & unfit POTUS 45 really is. Bring the end faster please.

      • RoFaWh

        But will “the end” refer to the end of Trump’s administration (as he is dragged out of the WH in shackles or, even better, a cage on wheels); or does it refer to the end of Trump himself from a surfeit of greasy fast food?

  • Friday

    Of course it couldn’t have had anything to do with the Republican tax bill being set to tank the economy again, could it?

  • fkevin

    So Trump will cover market losses when he screws up, right?

  • Ben in Oakland

    Typical. It’s always someone else’s fault.

    • RoFaWh

      Trump is Perfect, so What Else Can You Expect?

      PS: There’s no such thing as a capital question mark, so I emboldened it instead.

      • Ben in Oakland

        I often do this !?!?!?!?

  • Jim Maloney

    They did admit to their mistake via a ‘clarification’ something this guy doesn’t do which leads us to being stuck in the mess we’re in.

    • David L. Caster

      On air, during the day, as soon as they realized the mistake. Faux News does that kind of clarification or retraction in the middle of the night when few people are watching and nobody talks about it again on that network.

    #TRUMPISHITLER

    • Treant

      To a very limited extent, but I do wish we’d stop making the comparison. He hasn’t built concentration camps, invaded Poland (Mexico, I guess, in our case, unlikely though that is), confiscated the guns, or anything else.

      He has the potential to become Hitler, except that people hate him, our Constitutional rules are much different than Germany’s were at the time, and we already have past experience with a Hitler.

      • Daveed_WOW

        Close enough. The open bigotry is the first step. Remember that Hitler started with mass deportations…

        • Treant

          …which are, to a great extent, failing in the US. Or, don’t give Dumpster any more power than he actually has, and don’t be too hyperbolic because people won’t believe you.

          • Daveed_WOW

            We’re done here.

          • Treant

            (rolls eyes). Yeah, we sure are.

  • David

    Baby have a temper tantrum.
    Waaaaaa….Mommy Mommy Mommy!!!!

  • Class action suit against Faux News for destroying the Constitution of the United States and our democracy. Actual damages of 1.5T and punitive damages of 8.5T to be paid ONLY to Clinton voters. We’d each receive $151,872.00 which is a good start.

  • RoFaWh

    Another example of Trump’s incredibly poor command of English: the capitalization rules, which are easy to learn, are the latest to fall in his onslaught on culture, learning, frugality, and common sense.

    The False and Dishonest Stock Market is not capitalized.

    Of course, it’s quite possible that one of his gang of thieves wrote this.
