    Tonight I called out Donald Trump. While the rest of us were horrified by the 2008 financial crisis, Donald Trump was drooling over the idea of a housing meltdown – because he figured he’d make more money from the misery of millions. Now that he’s sewn up the Republican nomination, he’s out there kissing the fannies of poor, misunderstood bankers, promising to dismantle the rules we put in place after that crisis to rein in Wall Street greed. And while nurses, teachers, and dockworkers pay their fair share to support our military personnel who show courage and sacrifice for us every single day, Trump says he’s more than happy to dodge taxes. Donald Trump has made it perfectly clear that he cares about exactly one person – Donald Trump. And that kind of man can NEVER be the President of the United States.

    As a real estate developer it is understandable that Trump would be salivating at a housing crash.
    I get a sense of schadenfreude whenever the stock market has a correction because that's when I buy more shares. I hate to defend Trump but I can see why he would have had this particular attitude toward the housing crash.

    Finally,

    "You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before."
    --Rahm Emanuel, Democrat (former Obama Chief of Staff)

    Is this the same Elizabeth Warren who made money by buying foreclosed homes and flipping them?

    Hey, Crabtown, it was Democrat paragon Barney Frank who wrote the rules and caused the crash.
