Meet The Three-Headed Monster Getting Rich Off Of COVID | WALL STREET MEETS WASHINGTON EP. 17
Daily Caller White House correspondent Christian Datoc sits down with Wall Street guru and CEO of Farvahar Partners Omeed Malik 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.
August 1 has come and gone, and the White House and Congress aren’t any closer to reaching a deal on another coronavirus stimulus. Datoc and Malik put the failures of President Donald Trump and Hill leaders on full display at the top of the show. Still, compared to the political theater on display at the highly anticipated Big Tech hearing, the negotiations looked almost peachy.

Coupled with the latest news we’ve learned about a potential coronavirus vaccine, those two circuses paint a rosy picture of the Three-Headed Monster benefitting from the coronavirus pandemic. Apologies for sounding more doom & gloom than usual.
Still, the guys wrapped things up on a slightly more positive note: Triller — an app you might not have ever heard of — is putting patriotic capitalism on its back and looking to step up to fill a massive TikTok-sized hole in the social media industry.
