He went to Fort Knox, which wasn't even in the path of totality, so if he did it to see the eclipse, he didn't see much.

/Mnuchin is a scumbag, for sure, but I'm not sure about this one

But his wife looked fabulous!

Her wardrobe cost more than most Trump voters make in a month.

He took his trophy wife on his govt small jet for a nooner on the roof of farking Ft Knox's gold vault during an eclipse.

Do you really think he was looking ....up?

You know what's funny.  I came back to this thread and re-read my post and thought "WTF is Force Trump"

Just a heads up, OIG almost never finds criminal fault in situations like this. They'll just write up a report saying they should have handled it better and they are please that the Secretary reimbursed for his wife's travel expenses etc etc...

Nothing will come from this.

Will there be fresh news stories on it that could step on whatever is left of Foreclosure King's reputation and possibly inflame Donnie Two Scoops to rag on him?

Of course.

I'm content.

Oh god, this guy is such a f*cking asshole. Without Donnie he wouldn't make it anywhere near the Treasury. But here we are. This is the guy who needs to sell the debt ceiling increase. We're totally borked.

He seems like the kind of guy who has incredibly nasty sex fetishes. Maybe IT can catch him using a govt purchase card to buy time on barnyard midget amputee porn sites?

Small victories.

That's my thoughts as well. I told a number of people beforehand that if they're going to travel, get into totality. Seeing the crescent get a little thinner because you went from 78% to 84% is just stupid. You either don't witness it, witness the partial through a projector or lense, or you get to take the glasses off and gaze straight at the corona and blow your farking mind.

Whatever happened he had zero official business going on a tour of the gold vault with his new wife.  It's a pretty transparent show off move to impress a digger and he likely made the impression it was all his to do as he saw fit. Very sketchy.

Note I didn't speculate, or wish for, punishment. :)

It pleases me because this couple  -  one of them a "public servant" - need a reminder there are eyes on them other than the adoring kind.

If nothing comes of this but her realizing there are such things as watchdog groups I consider it a net positive.

This. We drove well into the middle of nowhere (sorta) for two minutes' totality. It was well worth it.

Totally (totality?) agree. Saw it in the center of the path of totality (2:36). At 99 percent it was meh. at 100 percent it was like standing on another planet. I've never experienced anything remotely like it in my life.

He does look like a lazy bottom. And he looks like he makes her work for those labels. My guess is that he's usually looking up.
