Election Night live

    America just hit an iceberg and we are going down by the head.

    Well…we’ve at least been through this once with Jesse–though Jesse was a far, far better politician.

    • John O.

      Jesse never had the power to influence global financial markets. Trump does.

      • Khatti

        Sigh. True enough.
