Former New York Times "Reporter" Jim Roberts Tweets, "The Dow Has Fallen 300 points Since Trump Started Speaking," Then Stealth-Deletes as Down Rises Nearly 10%, Nearly 2000 Points

i wish I could link the tweet for you -- but he's deleted it.

It used to be the tweet that led to this genius "serious question."

Update: Now he's deleted his "serious question," too.

Formerly, it read:

Serious question about drive-thru testing: What happens if you don't have a car?

ó Jim Roberts (@nycjim)

...which sounds like a very bad Emo Philips joke, delivered by Nick Nolte on the sixth day of a detox dry-out.

Has this guy been partying with Andrew Gillum and HoneyHammock?

He started celebrating, immediately, that the Dow had a brief small fall. He claimed it was due to Trump's speech -- Without Evidence, as CNN would say.

As the Dow zoomed higher and higher, his grave-dancing tweet appeared premature.

So he just deleted it. He didn't explain why. He just zapped it, and hoped no one noticed.

Well, I did.

After deleting his tweet, he shifted tactics: He now acknowledge the markets were rising, but claimed this was because Trump was passing out various undeserved goodies to corporations:

If you weren't sure that was Roberts' intent, he then made it more clear when he retweeted Chris Hayes saying that Trump was just trying to "pump up" the market:

It finished +9.36%, plus 1,985.00 points.

When the market was (briefly) down, it was a "news" story for traitorous propagandist Jim Roberts -- a negative story for Trump.

Then it went up, and he deleted his prior tweet.

Then it went up still further, and he started painting the market's rise as a different news story -- but also a negative story for Trump.

The Enemy of the People.

Spit on them.

Update: Someone actually grabbed a picture of the tweet:

Someone got his "serious question" too:
