STOCKMAN: Trump Could Be Gone By February

David Stockman, who headed the Office of Management and Budget under Ronald Reagan, in a new commentary warns: Ultimately, the hammer of fiscal crisis and a crashing stock market will break any remaining loyalty of the GOP elders as they smell the 2018 elections turning into a replay of the rout of 1974.

And then the Donald will be gone, and well before August 2018, too. I told an audience in Vancouver last Friday that it could happen by February.

The bottom line is that the Swamp is so undrainable that it will end up making mincemeat of Donald Trump….

In essence, the Donald is the ultimate bull in an exceedingly fragile China shop — and an already badly wounded one at that.

So it is no understatement to suggest that the S&P 500 at 2470 and the Dow at 22,000 is about as fragile as the “market” has ever been.

And Amazon, poster boy for Bubble Finance, is trading around 190 times earnings.

Any untoward pinprick could send it into a tailspin — meaning that the coming political bleeding-out of the Donald amounts to a 50,000 pound pin.

It’s the mighty Orange Swan that will lay the casino low like never before. At the moment, I am not as concerned about the economy as Stockman. I see short-term trouble ahead for the stock market but I don’t necessarily see the stock market causing another major recession in the near term.

That said, how will the unpredictable Donald Trump deal with a market crash? Will he spook the entire system?

And what about all the generals that surround him?

And if Trump makes it through February, will he make through the Ides of March?

Not even Julius Ceasar could make it through that mark on the calendar with angry senators around him.
