he holidays are a time for gift giving. Usually when you open a present, you might expect a gift card (from a relative who doesn't really know you at all), or maybe that sweater you've been eying all winter. But every so often, you receive a gift that makes you raise your eyebrows so high they nearly disappear into your hair.
Or, you know, if you're in Trump's administration, you get sent a gift that causes the bomb squad to be called in. Happy Holidays?
If you aren't aware of who the US Treasury Secretary is, it's this man named Steven Mnuchin.
He recently helped create President Trump’s tax plan which was passed by congress. It’s been criticized as favoring corporations as opposed to the American middle class, which is not surprising. This is Donald Trump and his people we’re talking about.
Mnuchin is exactly the type of man you would expect to be Trump's Treasury Secretary.
Mnuchin was previously a Hollywood producer and hedge fund manager. He also loves taking trips on military aircrafts that rack up a bill around $800,000.
How fun! And definitely someone we want handling our nation’s money.
Mnunchin and his wife got a very unexpected Christmas present Saturday night...a wrapped up gift of horse manure.
Yes, that’s right people. Trump’s Treasury Secretary was sent a box of poop for Christmas.
Of course, it was not what anyone expected.
In fact, the bomb squad was called to Mnuchin’s Bel Air mansion because of a “suspicious package.” It was indeed suspicious, but we wouldn’t say the bomb squad was necessary. Maybe someone looking to garden?
It was actually a guy named Robert Strong who sent the...ahem...surprise.
According to Strong, he was making a political statement. He came forward as the gift-giver on his Twitter, quoting Hunter S. Thompson, “when the going gets weird, the weird turns pro.”
What else did Strong tweet?
