If you wanted proof that President Trump isn't taken seriously consider this: After announcing that he's "looking into" breaking up the big Wall Street banks, market players kept on doing what they do best: finding ways to make money for themselves.
Put more bluntly, as Business Insider pointed out, the "stock market has stopped paying attention to what Trump says."
But there's a much bigger problem than President Trump's blatant disregard for the truth. As the Washington Post noted, Trump's "credibility gap" goes beyond him crying wolf.
The real problem is how President Trump's inconsistencies on virtually everything have turned his lies into ignored events. Whether it's Trump saying we're going to confront North Korea one day, then announcing that he would be "honored" to meet with Kin Jong Un the next, the smart money - and those who aren't criminally stupid - have learned that President Trump has no principles, or any clue about the world around him.
Throw in President Trump's recent Civil War comments, and it's abundantly clear that Trump's an historical illiterate too.
So, yeah, President Trump's a joke.
Unfortunately, it's going to cost us all one day. Bigly.
