Sometimes, some days, reality is more bizarre than fiction.
After enduring months of the “Hedi Cruz Goldman Sachs” argument from the Trumptards, here comes their boy Donald Trump with his announced nominee for U.S. Secretary of the Treasury and hoo-boy is it a beaut.
From Fortune Magazine, yesterday:
Donald Trump has told prospective donors that, if elected president, he plans to nominate former Goldman Sachs banker Steve Mnuchin for U.S. Treasury Secretary.
That’s according to Anthony Scaramucci, a high-profile hedge fund manager and Trump fundraiser.
So much for the “Heidi Cruz Goldman Sachs” parrots in Trumpworld using that screech any longer. But it gets better, as Mcuchin was a former Hillary Clinton campaign bundler also (more from the article):
Mnuchin, who is a former donor to Hillary Clinton, spent 17 years with Goldman Sachs GS 0.22% , where his father also had been a prominent executive. He later worked with investment groups affiliated with George Soros, including as chairman of controversial mortgage lender OneWest Bank Group (which would later be acquired by CIT Group).
Wow. When Donald goes full bore globalist, he doesn’t hesitate:
Hillary Clinton supporter? Check
Goldmand Sachs stooge? Check
George Soros rat? Check
Maybe if Donald is lucky he can hire some Ukrainian bankers to help with his campaign cash and go for the Full Monty of corruption in his administration.
