9. Maddow's 12/20/16 show recently covered the Shroedinger's cat angle on dRumpf's incoming admin.

So the repuglinazis are using the same tactic to govern as they used to run for office.

dRumpf Treasury Sec. pick Mnuchin announced "we got to get Fannie and Freddie out of governmental ownership", and immediately their stock prices took a huge jump, a 50% increase in value. One appointee "says something, and the stock takes off like a rocket."

"If you're president elect, you could make a LOT of money if you sent your people out to make pronouncements like that, while you held investments that could benefit from the impact of their words."

"dRumpf's financial disclosure statement he filed (instead of releasing his tax returns) shows that he has between 3 and 15 million dollars invested in a hedge fund that has bet heavily on the expected privatization of Fannie and Freddie."

"Now that we know dRumpf may have gotten a huge personal financial boost from his Treasury nominee's public pronouncement, the Prez elect is not commenting about whether he still holds that investment. The NYT (Matt Goldstein and Alexandra Stevenson, 12/19) asked the transition team about it, and dRumpf flack Jason Miller said "We're not sharing any additional information at this time." "

"Maybe the prez elect sold that stock months ago, or maybe he made a TON of money when his Treasury nominee said that. We don't know, we're not allowed to know."

(All quotes from Maddow.)

Of course, over sharing info by using public pronouncements is how the incoming admin made the stock situation occur. Now that they created the situation with their big mouths, the dRumpf admin has decided they're not going to share any info, at all.

That's 2 Shroedinger's cat moves in one incident.
