As an uplifting exercise this post-election season, I recommend you revisit the classic movie It’s A Wonderful Life. I just watched it with my 10-year old, a five-tissue event.
It puts Trump’s cabinet pick for Secretary of Treasury, Steven Mnuchin into perspective. He is the evil, profiteering Mr. Potter. His bank OneWest, under his leadership, was called a “foreclosure machine” following the recession. And Trump’s decision to put him into a position of power is moving us closer to a Pottersville nation.
See the Trump voter who “felt sick” when she realized that Trump just appointed the guy who acted like Mr. Potter toward her and her fellow citizens by greatly profiting from tricking people into losing their homes and taking tax dollars to do it.
Write to your U.S. Senator, and ask your Republican and Democratic friends to write to their U.S. Senators, to block the appointment of Steven Mnuchin.
