“I just want to congratulate everybody. The stock market Dow Jones Industrial Average just hit 30,000 which is the highest in history. We’ve never broken 30,000 and that’s just despite everything that’s taken place with the pandemic,” Trump said.
“But most of all, I want to congratulate the people of our country, because there are no people like you. Thank you very much,” Trump concluded.
As Trump took his leave the media “reporters” erupted into squabbling.
“Why won’t you concede?!” one reporter cried.
“Why aren’t you conceding, Mr. President?” another shouted.
“Sir, why not concede for the good of the country, sir?”
Once Trump left the room, the reporters began questioning the event.
“What the hell was that?” one reporter scoffed.
“That was weird as shit,” Fox News Jon Karl remarked as he removed his mask.
