Forget Trump Vs Biden — Can Barstool Beat The Stock Market? | WALL STREET MEETS WASHINGTON EP. 12
The Daily Caller White House correspondent Christian Datoc sits down with Wall Street guru and CEO of Farvahar Partners Omeed Malik every Friday for a new episode of “WALL STREET MEETS WASHINGTON.” It’s the only show that breaks down the beltway’s economic updates for both financial VIPs and everyday Americans looking for market tips.
This week, we opened up by discussing Datoc’s exclusive Oval Office interview with President Donald Trump. He gave two less than satisfactory answers on a major issue this show frequently discusses: what’s Trump planning on doing to either break up big tech monopolies or modernize antitrust laws for internet companies?

Next up, Malik explained exactly why the media is wrong about this so-called “second wave” of coronavirus cases hitting the South. He also took a moment to explain what states’ attitudes toward the coronavirus outbreak means for the November election: both parties are settling into familiar lanes — with Republicans digging in their heels on the economy and Democrats playing identify politics — and why both are disastrous for the current state of the country.
Finally, the guys took a step back and profiled one of the newest, influential faces on the financial scene, Barstool Sports founder and owner Dave Portnoy.
He’s managed to turn his millions of devout sports gambling viewers onto day trading throughout the pandemic. Some old-school market wonks are afraid of the new kids in town, but Datoc and Malik explain why those geezers can kick rocks and how Portnoy’s rise embodies everything right with the American Dream.
Don’t forget to check out last week’s episode if you haven’t already!
