So the New York Times ran an opinion piece today. It was presented anonymously because the author is a ‘senior administration official’ who could lose his or her job.
We can debate the ethics of whether it should be run in another thread. Right here and now I want to kick around who wrote it? Generally, in Washington speak, a ‘senior administration official’ is someone at the presidential advisor or cabinet level. Not always, but generally.
So let’s play the game.
I’m thinking maybe Mnuchin. Dude’s rich as fuck - possibly richer than Trump - and is likely frustrated as hell with Trump’s economic policy choices. What’s Trump going to do? Fire him into his life of incredible luxury?
