A Goldman Sachs partner’s take on Steve Mnuchin, Trump’s pick for Treasury: “Not a bad guy at all. But I don’t know anyone at Goldman who would tell you he has the gravitas to be Secretary of Treasury.”
Being the change candidate, Trump has apparently chosen a Goldman partner without gravitas for the spot.
Gravitas may not have a place in the administration of a man who will say of his ex-wife — on the radio, with millions listening — “nice tits, no brains.”
And what are we to make of a president who everyone more or less assumes by now routinely lies? (“I wouldn’t believe Donald Trump if his tongue were notarized,” a Deputy New York City Mayor once famously said of a much younger Trump.)
He saw thousands of Muslims cheering the fall of the Twin Towers. (Didn’t.) Won the popular vote if you don’t count the millions of illegal Hillary voters. (Nope.) Can’t release his tax returns because they’re under audit. (Can; and they’re not.*)
He’s been clocked at 71 Lies Per Hour.
*At least not the most recent ones, or the many for which the audit must have been completed.
