In other news, the World Steel Association says demand for steel, including American-made steel, will weaken over the next two years because Trump's trade war has depressed global economic growth, particularly in China. Are we winning yet?

Meanwhile, the White House is signaling that they're looking for replacement Fed nominees for Herman Cain and Stephen Moore, who are both completely batshit.

Finally, former Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke has landed on his feet at a mining company. I know you're shocked.

His new job comes about four months after he resigned as Interior secretary amid ethics allegations.

CEO Edward Karr says he expects Zinke’s recent Cabinet position will help his company move ahead with mining projects on state and federal lands.

Karr says Zinke will receive $114,000 a year as a board member and consultant. The company’s filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission says Zinke will also receive up to $120,000 a year in expenses.

    I can’t believe the White House would have a difficult time finding a slightly less ridiculous stooge to install at the Fed. After all, they have an entire Republican party to choose from.

    I’m sure Zinke must be exhausted from all that swamp draining.
