George Soros on Presidential Campaign


For John, BLUFDiehard Believers for Hillary.  Nothing to see here; just move along.



One of the things about growing older is worrying about being able to note the point when one slides into a condition that does not relate to reality.  Apparently, Mr George Soros missed it.

From Forbes, Mr Antoine Gara ("I cover the good, the bad and the ugly of finance.") gives us "Hedge Fund Billionaire George Soros:  'Donald Trump Is Doing The Work Of ISIS'"

George Soros, the world’s richest hedge fund billionaire, has no shortage of opinions when it comes to both politics and the global economy.  Famed for making a billion dollars by “breaking” the Bank of England in 1992, Soros is in a semi-retirement, but his prognostications still move markets.  And he remains a top contributor on the U.S. political scene, where he supports liberal candidates and causes.

On Thursday evening at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Soros used a 45-minute interview with Bloomberg TV’s Francine Lacqua to create an explosion of headlines on both the political and economic front.  “Donald Trump is doing the work of ISIS,” Soros said, citing the anti-immigrant vitriol that’s been a hallmark of the Trump campaign as he’s risen in Republican primary polls.  He levied a similar critique against candidates such as Ted Cruz, and said Hillary Clinton would win the general election in a landslide.

Or maybe I am drifty.

On the other hand, The Daily Mail says that Germany has misplaced 600,000 of 1.1 million refugees.
