Leading European Bookmaker Dramatically Slashes Odds on Trump Impeachment After Putin Summit
A major European bookmaker has dramatically slashed the odds that President Donald Trump will be impeached following his disastrous summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki.
According to Yahoo Uk, the Irish bookmaking outfit Paddy Power has cut the odds on a Trump impeachment from 8-1 to 2-1. This means that before the summit, Paddy Power put the chances of Trump being impeached at approximately one out of nine. Now? The chances are roughly one in three.
A Paddy Power spokesperson told Yahoo UK that the odds change was a direct result of post-summit action taken on the wager.
“After the carnage of the last few days, we’ve seen plenty of [bettors putting] money on Trump’s impeachment again,” the unnamed spokesperson said.
The Paddy Power spokesman did jokingly note that the bets on a Trump impeachment are likely to end soon.
“I’m sure they’ll soon get a message, in Russian, urging them to stop,” the spokesperson said, tongue-in-cheek.
