Maybe it's me, but "incredible" is not the best word to use for such a devastating storm.
When you have a limited vocabulary..

never mind the body language that says "why the fuck am I even here??'

As far as I can tell, the fed is doing exactly what the fed is supposed to be doing. Trump has no idea what the fed even is.

Maybe he got some good economic strategereys from Kanye at lunch. :sarcasm:
