In these troubled times, one of the things that you probably haven’t done enough of lately is laugh. Which, of course, is understandable given the whole once-in-a-lifetime public health and economic crisis situation. Still, experts say a hearty laugh a day can not only improve your mood but boost your immune system. And if you’re having trouble finding some source material, we’d love to make a suggestion: a recently surfaced interview with Eric Trump from March 3, in which he dubs himself a “super genius” for telling people to throw their money into the market, right before the coronavirus destroyed the economy.

Referring to a since deleted tweet, the president’s son bragged, “I wrote a tweet in the middle of the day and was like, you know what just my two cents, right now like this second would be an absolute great time to buy—the market was down like 1,000 points. Literally I sent that tweet, the market comes back up another 700 points that day right and then obviously you go into yesterday where it was up 1,300 points and you know today etc., etc. So I feel like a super genius right now, John.” The super genius’s exact tweet read: “In my opinion, it’s a great time to buy stocks or into your 401k. I would be all in…let’s see if I’m right.” For those of you keeping up at home, on February 28, 2020, the day of Eric’s tweet, the Dow Jones closed at 25,766.64. Today it’s…somewhat lower! Also, almost 15 million people are estimated to have lost their jobs.

Did you follow the investing savant’s advice and go “all in”? If so, we’d love to hear from you!
