As Stock Market Tanks, Trump Shills Charlie Kirk's Book 'The MAGA Doctrine'

President Trump got in bed with the GOP establishment after getting elected and embraced the GDP First agenda of the Paul Ryan donor-wing of the party (which funds Charlie Kirk) rather than embrace the America First agenda he ran on and now his chickens are coming home to roost.

On Monday, as the stock market opened down some 2,000 points and trading had to be halted, President Trump was busy shilling for Charlie Kirk's terrible new book, "The MAGA Doctrine":

He retweeted Kirk seven times in a row:

It's remarkable who he's chosen to align himself with.

The "MAGA doctrine" Kirk preaches on behalf of his megadonors is just liberal globalism (though one exception applies):

Incidentally, Kirk apparently grifted his way into the Trump administration through Don Jr:

As all the people who put their necks on the line in early 2015 and 2016 got censored, banned and jailed, Trump buddied up with Charlie Kirk and megadonors like Sheldon Adelson and Paul Singer. As Bannon told 60 Minutes, after getting elected Trump decided to embrace the establishment "totally."

Instead of championing immigration restrictionism, protectionism and an end to foreign wars, Trump decided to champion the black unemployment rate and the roaring stock market because -- as his campaign manager Brad Parscale said -- his base are "voters we already have."

After spending his early morning hours shilling Kirk's book, Trump finally decided to address the elephant in the room.

Trump actually waited months before taking any steps to restrict air travel -- even though this was the perfect opportunity to follow through on a campaign promise -- because he didn't want to spook the markets.

Imagine how much better the situation would be right now if Trump shut down the border back in December or early January instead of "monitoring" the situation.

The CDC had only tested 1,583 people as of Saturday.

China and South Korea appear to have managed to control the spread of the virus rather effectively by shutting down their cities entirely and conducting mass testing.

We're not doing any of that and we just have to hope and pray the virus goes away as the weather warms.
