Psychologist takes credit for sending boxes of horse poop to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin

A Los Angeles psychologist has taken credit for delivering a box of horse manure to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, said the Washington Post on Monday.

Robby Strong hand-delivered two large boxes of poop to homes owned by Mnuchin in Los Angeles — one in Bel Air and one in Beverly Hills — on Saturday to protest the passage of President Donald Trump and the Republican Party’s wildly unpopular tax plan.

“I wanted to ring the door and hand it to him myself,” said Strong to AL.com on Sunday.

“Merry Catmess!” said the card attached to the box. On the inside, a note from Strong said, “We’re returning the ‘gift’ of the Christmas tax bill. It’s bulls—t. Warmest Wishes, The American People.”

The box caused a bomb scare in Bel Air and Strong received a visit from the Secret Service.

“I just got interviewed by the Secret Service and I’ve now joined some of my heroes like Timothy Leary and Martin Luther King,” he said to AL.com. “[The agents] just showed up in my yard.”

Strong announced on Facebook that he intended to carry out the prank. In a post from Saturday, he said, “I need someone to ride along and document my Secret Santa project. I’m going to hand deliver boxes of horse s — t to Steve Mnuchin. No disguises, no fake names. Totally owning this one. You’re only powerless if you do nothing!!!”

“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,” strong said to radio station KPCC.

Strong works for Los Angeles’ Department of Mental Health and told KPCC he knows that he could lose his job over the political prank, but felt he needed to follow through regardless of the consequences.

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

Published

President Donald Trump has figured out how to have taxpayers pay to renovate his Trump National Doral Miami golf course, according to an analysis by MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle.

"Before setting himself on fire on Ukraine yesterday, Mick Mulvaney came into the White House briefing room to break to the nation the fact the that the Trump Doral golf resort turns out to be -- in his estimation, organically, just sitting there -- the best possible place to have a G-7 Summit of world leaders," MSNBC's Brian Williams reported. "That was provision number one. There’s no better place that we can find. Number two was, the president will not profit from said G-7."

Bill Maher reveals plan to ‘bribe’ Trump with one billion dollars — for him to leave office

Published

on

The Constitution has two mechanisms to remove President Donald Trump from office prior to his term ending on January 20, 2021: impeachment and the 25th Amendment.

HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher noted that Trump could also choose to resign.

Maher waved around a $1 million check that he said he would give to Trump to quit.

He said he also knew 1,000 people who would do the same -- which would land Trump over $1 billion.

Maher said even poor people would pawn their wedding rings to add to the pot.

Published

on

White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney will likely stay on at the White House despite his public confession of a quid pro quo in the Ukraine scandal at the center of the impeachment inquiry, The New York Times reported Friday.

"But Mr. Mulvaney’s job has been anything but normal since the news conference on Thursday at which he seemingly undermined the Trump administration’s strategy for avoiding impeachment by acknowledging that Mr. Trump had sought a quid pro quo for providing Ukraine with American aid," the newspaper reported. "In the chaotic aftermath, the president’s Republican allies are questioning Mr. Mulvaney’s savvy and intelligence even as the Trump campaign is defiantly turning one of his lines from the news conference into a T-shirt."
