How many have you have ever been victims of a natural disaster? I lost my house in Sandy. It's really easy to play armchair politics until it happens to you.
Victim? IDK.

Been in oh hella yes

Well not born but at 6 months old a hurricane ripped 1/2 the roof of my nursery. The rest of the house too. They said they found me laughing.

Been in lots of hurricanes or their tails. Never lost anything like a house.

Manafort seeking plea deal with special counsel that would avoid cooperation ahead of second trial:
ABCnews

TLDR: Can I please not cooperate and still skate? Or at least can I not cooperate about anything Trump and still skate?

Manafort reaches 'tentative' plea deal with Mueller:
The Hill

TLDR: CLIFFHANGER! No info on just who he is going to throw under the bus to avoid dying in prison!

Stay tuned, same bat time, same bat channel.

Don't sell this as something it isn't. Nike has been hitting personal "all-time highs" consistently since the early 2000s. The only question was whether or not gambling on Kaep would temporarily affect the trajectory. Relativistically, it's very difficult to tell since a lot of factors go into stock price, including the general state of the economy.

I'm not- the point is just that what they did with Kaep wasn't a bad business move and has not and will not negatively affect the company at all. Like I said:

MJ could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and people would still buy Jordans.

Same way gay people are still eating spicy chicken sandwiches at Chik-Fil-A. The boyotts and outrage on both sides are ridiculous. This is capitalism baby!

The official death count for hurricane maria remains almost 3000. Trump is still lying and conservatives want nothing to do with his lie of the day.
Only official in the mind of vic.

Which is to say its bot official at all.

Keep trying kid.

Oh no kid, its official. Puerto Rico was struggling to figure out the official death toll, so they commissioned a group to do it for them. That group has completed the job, and the Puerto Rican government has accepted their work and officially updated the death toll. Its done. Set in stone. Final answer. Nothing Trump says can change it, but if you and Trump want to keep lying about it, go right ahead.

Official death toll

(Estimate)

It is impossible to tell that from the stock prices alone, so your point is invalid. I've tried explaining this to Vic with no success, but I'll give you one shot.

Here's an example. If your business is poised to make billions in profit, and a business decision causes you to lose a million dollars over the course of a year, is that a bad business move? Yes. Does it affect the company at all? A little, yes. Would you be able to tell that from the stock prices that were already on the rise? Highly unlikely.

Lebron's come on next week, I'm predicting this will be Nike's most profitable month ever. And the Kaep clothing line hasn't even launched yet, hell, the pre-orders alone will be huge.

People must be blind not to realize the chess move Nike played.

You forgot the sensational:

Trumps campaign manager is about to plead guilty to carrying out a conspiracy against the United States. Manafort and Trumps lawyers are mounting a joint defense. According to Giuliani it’s 37 people mounting a joint defense...talk about an Omertà. However, by pleading guilty Manafort drops out of the JDA.
