I get in too deep with political news around this time, so much so that I’ve been reading Trump’s tweets and retweets and going down various rabbit holes. It’s not good, but I can’t help myself. Today, his campaign celebrated how 100 “Business Leaders” have come out to endorse his campaign. These “leaders” also wrote a piece for CNBC to share their letter.
It’s the typical BS from the wealthy right about the need for tax breaks and cutting back on “oppressive” regulation. It’s so obvious that they don’t give a crap about the country and want policies that will flow directly to their personal bottom line. What’s especially revealing about this letter, however, is that it’s all blind faith in Donald Trump, who has put forward nothing resembling a real plan, and whose business success is very checkered by any fair assessment.
I had to point out this part. What a load of nothing-speak.
Every element of the Trump plan points synergistically, interactively, and dynamically towards growth. Hillary’s plan points in the exact opposite direction — and towards a secular bear market.
The list of signers is mostly small potatoes (it’s not a long list of Fortune 100 leaders like Romney received). There are a few big company owners, but also a lot of small restaurant owners and random consulting companies. A few names stuck out for laughs, though.
Kathy Carr, Vice President of Sales and Marketing of Howie Carr Show.
Bradley Crate, who worked on Romney’s campaigns and now runs Red Curve Solutions, which is a GOP political/financial consulting firm. Shocking that a GOP consultant might support a GOP candidate.
Bradley T. Crate, Founder and President of Red Curve Solutions, LLC.
And in case you need a team to root for since the Sox are done, this list helps make it easy.
Jamie McCourt, Founder and CEO of Jamie Enterprises, former Co-Owner, President, CEO of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Todd Ricketts, Co-Owner of the Chicago Cubs.
And if you needed another reason to dislike the Jets.
Woody Johnson, Owner of the New York Jets.
