The Three Stooges are running the US economy now, so buckle up

The three stooges are running the US economy now, so buckle up


Quote:
"Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin is a sycophant.

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross is a sycophant.

White House trade adviser Peter Navarro is a sycophant.

And now, in an effort to please the President of the United States, they will put on a show in the White House. It will be billed as a show about the US economy, of which they are all now in charge. But it will really be a show about victimization, revenge, and some really good sound bytes — that's the kind of show Donald Trump likes."

I think the word "sycophant" deserves more attention. Let's see what our friend Mr. Webster has to say:

syc·o·phant
ˈsikəˌfant,ˈsikəfənt/Submit
noun
a person who acts obsequiously toward someone important in order to gain advantage.
synonyms: yes-man, bootlicker, brown-noser, toady, lickspittle, flatterer, flunky, lackey, spaniel, doormat, stooge, cringer, suck, suck-up
"I thought you wanted a competent assistant (cabinet member), not a nodding sycophant".

Being an ass-kisser (that word was left out of the definition) isn't the cabinet members ONLY problem. It seems some of these guys like spending taxpayer money.
Examples: The latest official to come under the microscope is Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, whose office spent nearly $139,000 to renovate three sets of office doors allegedly in need of repair, the Associated Press reported Thursday.
Before Thursday's news about the office doors surfaced, Zinke was involved in another spending controversy. The Associated Press reported in December that Zinke spent more than $53,000 on three helicopters trips.

Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin came under fire in August 2017 when he took a $26,900 flight to Kentucky on an Air Force jet, a trip that coincided with the August 21 solar eclipse...and of course there was that request for a military jet for Mnuchin's honeymoon.

Earlier this month, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson came under fire when his staff reportedly said they were attempting to cancel an order for a $31,000 mahogany dining set to replace the 50-year-old table currently in Carson's office.

The Inspector General released a report in February that implicated David Shulkin's chief of staff in "serious derelictions" for doctoring emails to ensure that the government would pay travel expenses for the secretary's wife on a trip to Europe.

Last month, the Washington Post reported that Scott Pruitt regularly spends thousands of taxpayer dollars on domestic and international airfare, staying at upscale hotels, for trips that are often not entirely relevant to his work as a cabinet official.

Tom Price, the former Health and Human Services secretary, resigned from his post in late September 2017 after sparking bipartisan outrage over his extensive use of chartered flights.

Price's travel cost taxpayers more than $1 million. Politico found 24 instances in which Price opted for a private jet over commercial flights, at a price tag of more than $400,000, while his the cost for his use of military jets exceeded $500,000.


What was that about..."draining the swamp"?
