“The pound took another beating today…”

I mourn the days that the Onion was funny. Fox News interrupted a live broadcast of a speech Trump delivered in Ohio on Monday. During the speech, Trump said that the tax cut bill “set off a tidal wave of good news that continues to grow every single day.” Fox cut over to cover a historic drop in the Dow Jones industrial average. That’s JUST the sort of thing the Onion would have done and we would all have loved. For those of us who remember the brilliant “Yes minister” BBC series, there was this running gag that whenever the lead characters were watching some news coverage of themselves on TV, they’d always turned off the TV after the news item about them, and always mid-sentence in “the pound took another beating today…”
