UPDATED Trump Stock Finds a New Low, Drops Off Cliff as Former President Sleeps in Court Again


UPDATED Donald Trump fell asleep in the courtroom yesterday. And he fell asleep again this morning.

Law360’s Frank G. Runyeon Tweeted from the courtroom: “Trump’s head slowly dropped, his eyes closed. It jerked back upward. He adjusts himself. Then, his head droops again. He straightens up, leaning back. His head [droops] for a third time, he shakes his shoulders. Eyes closed still. His head drops. Finally, he pops his eyes open.”

Today, Tuesday, Trump’s Media stock has dropped 14% to under $23. The day isn’t over, either. Come back at 4pm for the final bell.

Meantime, I’m enjoying all the planted stories about Trump’s 27 year director of communications, Margo Martin McAtee. She’s a Melania lookalike, but much younger. She must be very talented to have such an important job at her tender age. Even The Oklahoman has branded her as Melania double. Is that her real job?
