Bel Air, CA, United States (4E) - Dr. Robert Strong, a psychologist at the Los Angeles Department of Mental Health, mailed Secretary of the Treasury Steve Mnuchin (who's worth $300 million) a gift wrapped box filled with horse manure as a "Catsmess" present to protest Donald Trump and the Republican Party's Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 that make the rich much richer.
"Mrs. Mnuchin and Trump, We're returning the gift of the Christmas tax bill. It's bulls**t. Warmest Wishes, The American People. PS: Kiss Donald for me," said Dr. Strong in the card attached to the box of horse shit.
He also took a photo of the "greeting card" with the greeting "Merry Catsmess!" and posted it on Twitter.
"Here's the card that went with the box of horse manure I got Steve Mnuchin for Christmas," he tweeted. "Because if money is free speech so is horse s**t."
"All in a days work. If the GOP can fleece the American people in such a brazen fashion, we must call it out in such a brazen fashion. Like Hunter S. Thompson once said, "when the going gets weird, the weird turns pro." #handdeliveredhorseshit#ghostofchristmaspresent
The box was found at Mnuchin's home and police say it was marked as sent by "the American people." The Secret Service later said that it located and interviewed Dr. Strong.
Dr. Strong said he sent Mnuchin the noxious gift because the tax plan passed last week was corrupt and "brazenly ripping off the American people." He called the stunt a political act.
"What I did, I would like to compare to what Jesus did when he went into the temple and overturned the tables of the moneychangers, who were exploiting the people financially in the name of religion. I feel like that's what the GOP has done to the American people," explained Dr. Strong.
He said he's surprised that he hasn't been arrested or fired from his job. Dr. Strong was active with the Occupy L.A. movement.
Mnuchin and his wife, Scottish actress Louise Linton, have both been described as arrogant and condescending. Among those in Trump's cabinet, Mnuchin is among the most hated by the public.
