Preet Bharara, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, seems to be trolling stock traders tempted to trade on inside information. Bharara has a personal Twitter account and he appears to have caught the movie Wall Street on TV last night. In a series of tweets he mentions how greed is actually not good and the part in the movie where a body wire is used by Bud Fox (Charlie Sheen) to catch Michael Douglas’s character, Gordon Gekko.
And don’t forget that Gekko’s character, at least some of his language about corporate takeovers, was based on Carl Icahn, who just happens to be Trump’s new regulation czar.
