From the US ABC News: Gift-wrapped box prompts bomb scare at US treasury secretary’s LA home

Fears of a bomb outside Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin’s Los Angeles home turned out to be a waste — literally.

A box of gift-wrapped horse manure was to blame for a bomb scare in a driveway near Mnuchin’s Bel Air, California, home Saturday evening, according to Los Angeles ABC station KABC.

Police were called at 7:30 p.m. PT about a suspicious package left in the driveway next to Mnuchin’s home, but addressed to the treasury secretary. The bomb squad was immediately summoned to check on the package — only to discover it was manure.

The package was signed as being from “the American people,” according to KABC.

Some people take Christmas giving very seriously and look for the just the ‘right’ gift for the recipient. (It is really good for roses… 😈 )

Anybody else remember 1960’s environmental activist “The Fox”, best known for gifting 50 lbs of sewage to the office of a polluting company?

Well, then, as a ‘conservative’ Mnuchin should be pleased that people remember and honor the old ways of doing things, rather than just complaining on the ‘Net 😈

Now that you mention it, I remember having read about several of his actions, but the link didn’t occur to me.

Also, Seth Abramson compiled a good summary overview in a Twitter thread here:

Obviously, there were no GOP/Dotard Tantrum/RWNJ’s involved in that @ all. I’m sure DT will take credit for it, as he does for everything he had nothing whatever to do with, but never for the horror’s he has actually committed!

I commented on a tweet for the recent SpaceX luanch: “DT want’s to phone home! Can you please arrange to drop DT on the Moon on your Next Launch? Mars would be preferable if possible! Millions would chip in to help cover costs! Space suit is optional.”

The entire tribe may go down with money laundering for the Russian oligarchs. The super bad news for them is that the are equivalent state laws in New York, so if Mueller doesn’t get them NY AG Schneiderman will.

Oh, give him a spacesuit with all kinds of heroic patches, then take him into space and push him out the airlock in the direction of Mars.
