Fox News financial experts baffled by Trump’s latest attacks on his own Federal Reserve chairman
Two financial experts on Fox News couldn't figure out why President Donald Trump was lashing out at the Federal Reserve chairman on Friday.
Trump has continually berated Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell, who the president nominated in 2017. Trump believes that Powell should not have raised interest rates and has not moved quickly enough to cut them.
On Friday, Trump questioned whether Powell was a “bigger enemy” to the United States than Chinese President Xi Jinping. Trump's attacks came shortly after Powell delivered a speech in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
‘This is not a joke’: Trump-loving professor fumes after his QAnon rant results in bursts of laughter
An Arizona community college professor melted down after students laughed at his presentation of a right-wing conspiracy theory.

White House thought freeing rapper A$AP Rocky and having him grovel before Trump would win black voters: report
President Donald Trump's unusual efforts to get rapper A$AP Rocky out of Swedish custody after he was arrested for -- and later convicted of -- assault was reportedly part of a White House strategy for winning over black voters.
Yahoo News reports that the campaign to get A$AP Rocky released from jail was designed to eventually "facilitate a scene that would bolster Trump’s image among African-Americans."
Trump, who weeks earlier had gotten in hot water for telling four women of color to "go back" to their home countries despite all being American citizens, apparently believed that helping a high-profile black celebrity would bolster his reputation among black voters who have been among the least likely to support him throughout his first term.
