I keep hearing that as long as the economy (and especially the stock market) is “good,” way too many people will think Trump is doing a decent job. That seems absurd to me, of course, but I didn’t have a good way of explaining it until I saw this:

Looking at the stock market to judge the economic health of our country is actually like looking at a dying man and judging his health based on how the leeches look.
Those words were written by Lee Camp of Redacted Tonight.

The stock market is all about extraction of wealth, so the leech metaphor is pretty apt.
