That's the headline just now at CNBC.com.
"Earnings have provided a good fundamental base for the market, but I'm beginning to wonder if this news item is the straw that breaks the camel's back," said David Schiegoleit, managing director of investments at U.S Bank Private Client Reserve.

Some fools want to pretend the economy is great because so far Wall Street is thriving. Now watch job growth slow to a stop while all the usual suspects pretend they do not notice that wages are not increasing, even as jobs go begging. Watch the price of food increase as climate change increases and immigration policies leave produce unpicked. And by all means watch the coal industry continue to go nowhere because there is no such thing as "clean coal" and it was already being killed by automation anyway. Perhaps the death of the US travel industry will show up in job reports before long, since the country is now rather an international pariah.
Good thing the short-fingered vulgarian bully is making America stronger. At least, kissing ass for Russia, China, N. Korea, and Turkey is what he is doing, so presumably the pustulent pest is making the US more safe-- at least if having health care and earning a living wage don't matter. This whining Biggest Loser spends a lot of time (just like Lyin' Ryan's preposterous "budget" scam with its magic asterisks and dishonest "dynamic" fantasies) counting unhatched chickens.
And then, hilariously, they hatch and he still can't count them.
Since we have never seen his medical reports, we cannot know whether the biggest turd in the world's political punch bowl is subject to growing dementia, but there is a viral video that makes the case, and it may be preposterous, but St. Ronnie had that problem, so it's not unheard of. This is not mainstream, like Hillary's pizza parlor pedophile ring, or the murder conspiracy that Fox spent yesterday dealing with until it all fell apart, but as some respected alleged reporter once said, "it's out there."https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3CFwkoqxIs&vl=en
