Macrobusiness fund manager Chris Becker has been sacked tonight, after revelations he posted a pro-Trump meme in Macro Afternoon.
Becker, who maintained it was an innocent mistake, was marched after a MAGA meme featuring Donald Trump in a positive fashion was posted in the Macro Afternoon section last night. It was swiftly taken down, with an announcement made that Becker had been sacked effectively immediately.
Becker remained defiant that it was not intentional.
“It was an honest mistake. I went to upload one of my usual boomer-tier anti-Trump memes that I’d been consistently posting the last 4 years and realised I’d posted a pro-one by mistake. I was then told that I was fired,” Becker said.
“I guess I just had a memory lapse. We all make mistakes. Posting stocks up/stocks down/stocks mixed twice a day, which no-one reads anyway, is a tougher gig than you would think.”
Becker said there was no ill will and that acting as the Macrobusiness censor was one of his most cherished memories.
“Some of my best work was letting commenters like Mig, Gunna and drsmithy, who side with my brand of vapid, cosmopolitan progressive politics, continually spam the comments section with garbage. Furthermore, cancelling paying members for wrong think is a dirty job, but someone has to do it.
“It at least took focus off my piss-poor management of the fund.”
