Trump Scandals Triggers DOW's Biggest Losses Since September

The stock market on Wednesday took its biggest dive since before President Trumpís election, as investors began to grapple with the increasing possibility that Washington would be consumed with chaos and fail to enact policies to boost the economy.

The Dow Jones industrial average lost 368 points, or 1.8 percent to 20,611, as a broad array of other indexes all lost ground. Meanwhile, a widely followed measure of volatility known as the VIX, which had been remarkably subdued in recent months, spiked by a dramatic 21 percent, suggesting sharply growing anxiety by investors about a sense of rising political risk in Washington.

Fake news cooked up by the likes of the WaPo and NY Times are behind the nervousness.

Is it fake news or alternative facts?

When an administration introduces NewSpeak to the nation, they have to spell out the parameters of the definitions for each NewSpeak word and phrase, so as not to confuse.

Do you realize that after every single post about Trump you repeat the same line? Fake news.

You seem to think that quotes, text, data, statistics, video, memos and headline news---from around the country---by many different sources are FAKE NEWS.
Even though thousands of unrelated reporters, journalists and national news sources are repeating the same thing, you say Fake News.

When the Russians were suspected of interfering in our elections and confirmed by every American intelligence agency, you said FAKE NEWS.
When Michael Flynn lied to VP Pence and was fired, you said Fake News.
When the Pentagon probe proved that Flynn lied AND communicated with Russians AND took money from the Russians, you said Fake News.
When Comey, who was investigated for the above scandal and then was fired, you said FAKE News.
NOW, when we find out that Comey was asked to drop the Russian investigation, you say FAKE NEWS.

All these things have been proven. IS that fake news too?
Thanks from tristanrobin

They have not been proven. None of it has been. The Washington Post said that unnamed sources and personal acquaintances said so.

The NY Times reporter never even saw the alleged Comey memo, someone read a part of it to him.

The Comey asked for more money story is proven fake news, as is the story that Rosenstein threatened to resign.
