Barstool Sports Founder Blasts Trump for Tanking Chinese Stocks – Here’s Why

But is Portnoy misguided in his roasting of Trump? Barstool Sports epitomizes bro culture. If Tucker Max and The Pickup Artist had a baby they dumped in foster care, it would be the popular sports and entertainment site.

On a day when much of the world was celebrating Earth Day, Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) investors should be rejoicing at the sudden deterioration in China’s air quality.

China’s Insane Fortnite Limits Take ‘Nanny State’ to Ridiculous New Levels

But as if those measures weren’t draconian enough, one Fortnite leaker claims those policies are about to get even more extreme.

Did Coronavirus Originate in America? Chinese Media Pushes Conspiracy

Chinese state-run media has reported that many Chinese believe Wuhan coronavirus originated in the U.S. The report claims that the disease is being mistaken for influenza – which has already killed 16,000 this season.
