‘Malignant narcissist’ Trump gets brutally mocked for boastful stock market tweet after GOP’s stunning losses
President Donald Trump tweeted out a cheerful update on the stock market following Republican losses in Kentucky and Virginia — and other social media users dunked him in mockery.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average hit a record high Monday, but analysts warned the next decade could be far weaker for investors.
That didn’t stop the president from boasting about the short-term gains in the wake of losses by his close ally, Gov. Matt Bevin, and GOP legislators in Virginia.
“Stock Markets (all three) hit another ALL TIME & HISTORIC HIGH yesterday!” Trump tweeted. “You are sooo lucky to have me as your President (just kidding!). Spend your money well!”
