Trump Sold You Out To Some Weirdo Named Steve Mnuchin

After spending the entire campaign slamming Clinton for her Goldman Sachs ties (the one and only time we were ever even sort of on board with a word that comes out of his mouth), Trump tapped Mnuchin, a former hedge fund manager at Goldman Sachs. Mnuchin worked at Goldman for 17 years, and he probably didn’t even have to apply for the job: his dad had worked there for three decades.

Even better: while Mnuchin was at Goldman, he was head of the mortgage department, back in the glory days of collateralized debt obligations and credit default swaps – in other words, the very practices that drove the foreclosure crisis in the first place.
