‘When I saw he was CALLING the BANKS, Just Tells me the Administration is a Littlest unsure of what’s on.’
“A run on the BANKS is WHEN people are won’t be liquid, so They START Withdrawing , BrOtherings, so They had to go to the Fed for Extra cash, Which is essentially a bailout,” Matousec said.
“There’s a Difference now and Beacuse we didn’t Have TEST we do now,” Matousec added. “We Have so Much TEST, They’re so regulated, WHEN I saw he was CALLING the BANKS, Just Tells me the Administration is a Littlest unsure of what’s on.”
