Dow futures plunge 1000+ points after Dipshit's teleprompter


Dow futures plunge more than 1,100 points as Trump speech disappoints investors

Futures contracts tied to the major U.S. stock indexes fell on Wednesday night after an address from President Donald Trump failed to quell concerns over the possible economic slowdown from the coronavirus.

The move comes after the Dow Jones Industrial Average ended its historic 11-year bull market run by closing in a bear market.

As of 11:37 p.m. ET Wednesday, Dow futures were down 1,135 points, implying a loss of 1,095.22 points at Thursday’s open. S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 futures were also sharply lower.

My perfect scenario: Senator Sanders drops out, speaks of unity. Speaks

of defeating the biggest enemy of mankind we know. "We are all Democrats. We are all for caring for the least among us - always, every time.".

"The people have spoken. Joe will lead us to defeating trump. In this time in history that is all that's important."

"We, all of us, will soon see a brighter day, it's on the horizon, where we will see a kinder, more equitable life for every human being. I want to be a big part of that. Please, all my loyal supporters, please join me!"

So NBC just showed a coronavirus US map that was

Way different than any I have seen. Showed 24 cases now in TX. Didn't see any methodology explained from NBC.

Then we see that CDC isn't counting anymore?
From CDC website:
CDC is no longer reporting the number of persons under investigation (PUIs) that have been tested, as well as PUIs that have tested negative. Now that states are testing and reporting their own results, CDC’s numbers are not representative of all testing being done nationwide.

Then I pull up the "sickmap"
https://www.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/bda7594740fd40299423467b48e9ecf6 This map used to pinpoint specific towns, now entire state - for a huge state precise locales are important.

Also find out that states are not required to report to CDC. Where's Trump's "emergency" orders when you need them.

No way, NO WAY, can Sanders walk back his criticism of Biden

If you watched him on Chris Cuomo.

Guess we are fucked if his supporters sit out in November.

So, so sad that a "Democrat" will cause our defeat. Margins are so thin + tRussian interference.

Oh well, we lived through three and a half, we can live through 8.
(Not a lot of people other than us), nor our government as we know it, but we will survive.

Not a statistician, but would venture a guess. Pence NOT knowing if Dipshit

got tested? Odds 1 in 100,000,000.

Guaranteed he did. But Pence wants to check to make sure trump wants that "known". That he got a test and the very ill old folks didn't.

Why Pence didn't get one? Moran.

Anyone see Pompeo on CNBC? New meme - emphasize COMMUNIST! China

He basically didn't answer anything except to stress that China is Communist! And they are bad and they aren't helping us O k..

What about test kits?
"I don't have anything to do with that!"

Report that a producer from Vice news who flew into JFK from Italy and wasn't asked a thing?
" Stop listening to stories and just look at CDC website."

But the CDC has been criticized..
"Complicated world on social media, people say everything on social media"

Interactive World Sick Map - Coronavirus

Call bullshit on Pence. Said on faux that we have

screened 47,000 people at airports in US for virus. I flew 5 legs in US during this time and never saw any inkling of screenings. Could he mean international flights?

On edit...
Guess I was wrong...
The CDC began screening at Los Angeles International, John F. Kennedy International and San Francisco International airports earlier this month as concerns about the new coronavirus began to increase. Last week, the agency began enhanced screening of passengers at two additional airports, Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson and Chicago O’Hare International.

CDC officials said the five airports were chosen because roughly 90 percent of the passengers arriving from Wuhan either on direct or connecting flights flew through them. But efforts to ensure all arriving passengers came through those airports proved difficult. Expanding screening to 15 additional airports where the CDC has quarantine stations in place poses less of a logistical challenge and will enable officials to reach 95 percent of travelers coming from China, officials said.

The screenings, which focus on travelers from Wuhan, involve having them fill out a form detailing their travel and contacts while in Wuhan and whether they are experiencing any symptoms. They also have their temperatures taken.

Here are the 20 airports where travelers will undergo additional screening:

Los Angeles International
John F. Kennedy International
O’Hare International
San Francisco International
Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson
Anchorage Ted Stevens International
Boston Logan International
Dallas-Fort Worth International
Detroit Metropolitan
El Paso International
Honolulu International
Houston George Bush International
Miami International
Minneapolis-St. Paul International
Newark Liberty International
Philadelphia International
Puerto Rico’s San Juan International
San Diego International
Seattle-Tacoma International
Washington Dulles International
In addition to expanding screening, Messonnier said health officials would distribute 350,000 cards to travelers arriving from China with information about the coronavirus and where to call if they think they may have symptoms of the virus. The cards were already being distributed to passengers who arrived at airports that did not have enhanced screening in place.
