Capitol Gains: Oklahoma Politicians Perfecting Art of Insider Trading…

It’s been a while since we heard from our pal Senator Marcuswayne Mullin – “the little giant dufus from little Dixie” who is upholding the modern-day Oklahoma tradition of sending our worst and dullest to Washington DC.

When we last checked in with Marcuswayne, he was challenging union bosses to fights and wrestling matches, which – knowing what we know about the crowd those guys hang out with – probably explains why Marcuswayne has been laying low and not using any footstools. 

Although he’s been a bit out of the spotlight, Marcuswayne is still doing an incredible job using his office as an apparatus to make money and enrich himself. 

Having seen his net worth skyrocket since moving to DC a decade ago, the multi-multi-millionaire is now using his inside knowledge as a US Senator to make some wise stock bets.

For example:

Wow. That is a pretty nice return! It must be nice to have all that inside knowledge and then use it to profit on stocks. Sure, that’s usually against the law, but I’m willing to look the other way when Marcuswayne does it. You know, because he pays his own salary in the form of taxes… 

I tried to look up what other stocks Markwayne owns so I could make money with him, but that service costs about $500 a year. If some smart or rich person wants thow to look up Marcuswayne's portfolio with the rest of the world, shoot me an email so everyone can benefit.

Anyway, Marcuswayne isn’t the only person from our state’s congressional delegation to make bank using insider knowledge. 

US Rep Kevin Hern – the man who recently failed in an attempt to be the Speaker of the House – is also doing fine. 

$415,000 may sound like a lot of money, but remember, Hern is worth nearly $100 million, so it’s really not that big of a deal. Everything is fine. 

While Oklahoma’s elected representatives are making wise stock picks, Oklahoma’s tree trimmers aren’t doing so hot. 

Last month, the Washington Post profiled a Bethany area tree trimmer – not to be confused with a Warr Acres weed sprayer – who sunk his entire nest egg of $25,000 into Trump’s Truth Social Stock. 

Jerry Dean McLain first bet on former president Donald Trump’s Truth Social two years ago, buying into the Trump company’s planned merger partner, Digital World Acquisition, at $90 a share. Over time, as the price changed, he kept buying, amassing hundreds of shares for $25,000 — pretty much his “whole nest egg,” he said.

That nest egg has lost more than half its value in the past two weeks as Trump Media & Technology Group’s share price dropped from $66 after its public debut last month to $22 on Tuesday. But McLain, 71, who owns a tree-removal service outside Oklahoma City, said he’s not worried. If anything, he wants to buy more.

“I know good and well it’s in Trump’s hands, and he’s got plans,” he said. “I have no doubt it’s going to explode sometime.”

Can you imagine being dumb enough to not only say something like that, but also believe it? First of all, Trump is a con man. Second, he doesn’t even have large hands. They’re actually quite tiny and small, something I know firsthand:

Anyway, I guess I’m going to wrap this article up and buy some stock that members of our congressional delegation own so I can get rich.
