Donald Trump, after effectively securing the nomination, scrapped the whole “I’m self-financed” shtick and vowed to raise money from others. You will recall that taking money from other people was one of the things he said made every other candidate a tool owned by someone else.
To head up his new Office of Becoming A Fully Owned Tool, the Donald has made some new hires. And at the top of the heap is his new Finance Chair, Steven Mnuchin. He’s an interesting guy. Big Hollywood connections, big Wall Street resume, big money friends. You know, all the stuff that was bad bad bad but is now good good good because Trump says so.
Oh and also Hillary and Soros. Yeah.
Mnuchin donated repeatedly to the Democratic frontrunner’s past campaigns and has business connections to George Soros, the Democratic megadonor who has given millions to a pro-Hillary super PAC.
And this from Daily Caller:
Mnuchin, according to his Bloomberg profile, was a partner at Goldman Sachs, where he worked for 17 years. He also worked at Soros Fund Management LLC, founded by liberal mega-donor George Soros.
During the primary, Trump criticized rival Ted Cruz because the Texas senator’s wife worked for Goldman Sachs. “I know the guys at Goldman Sachs. They have total, total control over him. Just like they have total control over Hillary Clinton,” Trump said in February.
Well ain’t that about a b**ch?
Donald Trump has been the presumptive nominee for about 9 minutes and he’s already reversing himself and his earlier campaign statements. He’s doing the EXACT things he spent the last few months frothing about on stage to fire up his followers. He told you it was an act. And it was. And now you know.
Good job, Indiana.
PS: SERIOUSLY!!! Goldman AND Soros AND Hillary. You cannot MAKE THIS STUFF UP!!!
