In other news, Navy Secretary Richard Spencer either resigned in protest or got fired, depending on which account you read, because of Trump's intervention in the Edward Gallagher war crimes case.

He was clearly forced out regardless of which version of the story you believe.

Meanwhile, Defense Secretary Mark Esper says Trump directly ordered him to allow convicted criminal Edward Gallagher to retire with his SEAL status.

Finally, Goldman Sachs is telling investors that a divided government in 2021 would be best for their stocks because Democrats could end Trump's trade war but probably not repeal his tax cuts.

In a note subtitled, “United we fall, divided we rise,” the firm’s chief U.S. equity strategist, David Kostin, outlined his market predictions for 2020, including the implications of the upcoming presidential election. [...]

“The election outcome could magnify risks or the economic growth outlook could deteriorate,” he added. “A unified federal government post-election could prompt investors to assume the tax cut is reversed and lower projected 2021 earnings per share.”

Divided we rise, they say.

  • These assholes don’t value stability or a firm competent hand at the tiller, or they’d be clamoring for a complete Democratic sweep. All they care about is the tax cut.
