There has to be a better way than this to run a railroad. You remember a couple of weeks ago, when the Treasury department started sending out the $1200 stimulus checks? I wrote an article about how this could get nasty, since reports were that Trump’s signature graced the bottom of the checks, which would make them invalid, since it is the Secretary of the Treasury who is the signatory for checks issued by the Treasury. It turned out that in order to take credit, Trump had actually signed the “memo” line on the check. Just another cheap con.
Except that it didn’t work out so well when everybody tipped to the cheap optics of it, and laughed their collective asses off. Well, if ya can’t con ’em one way, just con ’em another. And if there’s one thing that Donald Trump never runs out of it’s an endless supply of cons.
When we got the mail yesterday, there was an envelope from the United States Treasury Department in the small pile. Now I don’t know about you, but I tend to get a bit edgy and paranoid when I suddenly get a letter out of the blue from a state or federal agency that I haven’t even contacted. Were they officially notifying me that they were taking away my stimulus because I’m always such a dick to El Pendejo Presidente in my articles?
No such luck. Hell, I’d gladly send my $1200 back for proof positive that the miserable shit is actually reading my stuff. Instead it was a short, vapid letter, proudly announcing to me that my stimulus check should have already been delivered. And at the bottom of the single page, it was signed Donald John Trump.
What is going on here? Again, there is no excuse for Trump to be signing letters going out on Treasury Department stock, doesn’t he know that he has his own Oval Office letterhead? And nowhere in that letter was there even a mention of the name of Steve Mnuchin.
This is truly pathetic. Obviously Trump is not going to let up on this nonsense until he feels he’s gotten proper credit. What next, a notice on United States Postal Service letterhead, announcing that we should already have received a letter from the Treasury Department, and signed by His Lowness himself? I can hardy wait.
