After Trump’s comments on the Fed this morning. calling for more quantitative easing this clip from Being There, one of the greatest movies ever is now more real than fiction. The real Chauncey may soon have some solid intellectual back-up if POTUS can get his two new nominations to the Federal Reserve through the Senate.

Chauncey relates to the world in every conversation with the only two things he has ever known, resorting to gardening and television buzzwords. Similar to, you know, free markets and capitalism.
