This Man Sent a Box of Actual Manure to Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin for the Holidays

The 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?

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 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.

Yes, that’s right people. Trump’s Treasury Secretary was sent a box of poop for Christmas.

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?

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?

The card read: “Mrs. Mnuchin & Trump, we’re returning the ‘gift’ of the Christmas tax bill. It’s bullshit. Warmest wishes, The American people. PS-Kiss Donald for me.” Wondering if they actually gave Trump that kiss?

As BuzzFeed reports, Strong is a psychologist. He works for the LA Department of Mental Health.

But he doesn’t care, and feels that he did what needed to be done. “What I did, I would like to compare to what Jesus did when he went into the temple and overturned the tables of the moneychangers, who were exploiting the people financially in the name of religion. I feel like that’s what the GOP has done to the American people,” he told KPCC.

But it was pretty suspicious, so that’s when the bomb squad was called in to investigate. Evidently, the Secret Service is now handling the issue.

“In the long run, if we don’t do stuff like this, what are we going to have left?” he said.
Keep fighting the good fight, Strong.
