Stephen Mnuchin Confirmed for Treasury

Herr Trump’s nomination of Stephen Mnuchin, the godfather of the foreclosure crisis, may have come as something of a shock to some, way way back six weeks ago when people were still talking about #draintheswamp. Remember that bullshit?

Well, not so surprising is that the Senate just confirmed Mnuchin to be Treasury secretary, in a party-line vote. To be clear, Joe Manchin, Democrat of West Virginia, voted for confirmation, but since he votes with the Republicans on just about everything I’m going to just say from now on that it was a party-line vote.

Well, hope none of you are behind in your mortgage payments!
