There‚Äôs more than a zero percent chance he‚Äôll hold a press conference about it, too.

Yesterday, JPMorgan C.E.O. Jamie Dimon said at a bank event that were he to run for president, he would easily beat Donald Trump on account of being ‚Äúsmarter,‚ÄĚ ‚Äúas tough,‚ÄĚ and originally from a ‚Äúpoorer‚ÄĚ section of Queens. All of these things are objectively true! But just an hour later, Dimon essentially took it all back, saying in a statement that he should ‚Äúnot have said‚ÄĚ that stuff and that he did so out of frustration because he ‚Äúwant[s] all sides to come together to help solve big problems.‚ÄĚ Given that the whole thing was over in about 60 minutes, and that the president has a Category 2 storm set to deliver ‚Äúcatastrophic, life-threatening damage‚ÄĚ to the Carolinas on this hands, you might have thought he would let this one go. But you would have thought wrong!
To be fair, this was just one of several unhinged tweets the president sent this morning, the others being an attack on law enforcement; a claim of collusion between Hillary Clinton and Russia; a fist-pumping statement about the economy; and one in which he went full Alex Jones, insisting that the Puerto Rico death count is a conspiracy made up by Democrats to make him look bad, and that 3,000 Americans didn‚Äôt actually die as a result of last year‚Äôs hurricane.
