‘Economic chaos’: MSNBC’s Morning Joe keeps hearing worrying whispers from business leaders

Published

on

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough warned that bankers are predicting “economic chaos” and another depression for next year, no matter who wins the election.

The “Morning Joe” host said he’s been speaking with contacts in the financial world who are worried that economic inequality will worsen next year, but he said that issue seems to be underreported by the media.

“Just this past week alone, in random social conversations not related to [asking], ‘Hey, how is the economy going,’ not where I’m picking up the phone asking people what they’re thinking, I talked to a top banker at one of the big three banks in America, a small business lawyer that actually handles small- to mid-size companies, a finance CEO, and also a few restaurant owners that own quite a few restaurants, and they all told me the same thing,” Scarborough said.

“I’m hearing time and time again, not to be a Cassandra here, but they say get ready for 2021, it doesn’t matter who gets elected, there’s going to be a depression,” he added. “I keep hearing the word depression, what they’re seeing from their clients are people that have held out for six, seven, eight, nine months on the verge of collapse, people that own property. They’re all saying the same thing, the rich are going to get richer, the poor are going to get poorer, cash is going to be king in 2021 and there is going to be economic chaos again.”

Scarborough noted that each of those sources brought up the topic on their own.

“These people don’t know each other they, I didn’t lead them,” he said. “They’re all saying this. What’s going on? Why are there such grave concerns up and down the economic food chain that we’re not hearing about in the mainstream press?”

The fake Village People made a surprise appearance on "Saturday Night Live" to tell President Donald Trump to stop using their music at his rallies or they'll shave Ivanka Trump's head.

"If you have been watching the Trump rallies, you probably noticed Trump dancing to The Village People," said Colin Jost during the Weekend Update segment. "If you haven't, let's take a look."

He explained that the Village People had their own special message for the president. The group of SNL cast members came out dressed in traditional Village People outfits and sang their cease and desist for the president.

SNL does campaign ad asking what they’ll do without Trump to trash — then they have a revelation

Published

"What is the news even going to be about now?" the Saturday Night Life cast joked, saying that without President Donald Trump.

The fake ad began saying that everyone knows it could be the most important election of our lives.

"And the two choices couldn't be more different," the ad continues. "Do we want four more years of Donald Trump or a fresh start with Joe Biden? Can we survive four more years of scandal, name-calling, and racial division? Or do we want a leader who unites the country? I want to vote for Biden because he's better, smarter. better and better."

But, the cast members confessed, "I'm worried, because if Donald Trump isn't president -- when what are they going to talk about? Like, what would our conversations even be? Because the only thing I talked about for four years is Donald Trump. Every single day I tell someone, 'Can you believe what Trump just said?' My entire personality is hating Donald Trump. If he's gone, what am I supposed to do? Focus on my kids again? No thanks. He changed the game. He called the attorney general he appointed mentally retarded. That's some next-level sh*t!"

Saturday Night Live’s Trump claims his secret COVID-19 plan is ‘under audit just like my taxes’

Published

"Saturday Night Live" began this week's show with a recap of the presidential debate showing President Donald Trump confusing Kirsten Welker with Hoda Kotb, Mindy Lahiri, and at one point, even a waitress.

Alec Baldwin explained that the coronavirus loved him so much that it didn't want to leave his body because it was so beautiful.

He also explained that he couldn't share his coronavirus plan because it was still under audit like his taxes.

Jim Cary toned down his portrayal of Joe Biden from last week's over-the-top yell-fest.

"Learning to live with it? We're learning to die with it, man!" said the fake Biden, quoting the real Biden, but with a glint of Clint Eastwood.
