Trump compares Federal Reserve to a bad golfer

In a somehow fitting close to 2018, we interrupt our year-end retrospective content to bring you the President of the United States of America comparing macroeconomic policy to a great ball-striker who can't putt.

This is your cue to project bias onto us and to blame us for whatever you want one way or the other. Thanks, Internet!

Actually, since we're looking back on the year that was, this tweet does remind us of a certain avid golfer who may or may not be able to putt.

Finally, if someone could explain to us how federal interest rates play into a three-month-long debt over a $5 Nassau, it would clear up a surprising number of problems here on the desk.
