Such a great movie.

Wow, he racked up a ton of producing or exec producing credits since 2014, including some great movies and some of the very worst movies ever made (A Winter’s Tale). Then it turned out that his production company that he co-chaired, Relativity Media, was scummy and run by an enormous scumbag, and filed for bankruptcy in 2015. He jumped ship before it went bankrupt but still was producing movies.

I wonder why his filmography only starts in 2014 on imdb and Wikipedia when his old company started financing films in 2014.

Who is the trashy porn star with the crummy Treasury Sec there? She looks like she’s right off a Brazzers set with that fake everything and smug smirk. That’s the character that teaches the babysitter a thing or two.

That would be his wife, who loves him for who he is

Funny thing to me? It’s just $50 (those are all singles)

Absolutely, this is incontrovertible. The fact that he’s super loaded has nothing to do with it, I’m sure.

Forbes: Three Former Colleagues Sue Secretary Of Commerce Wilbur Ross

Three longtime colleagues of Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross filed a lawsuit against him and his old private equity shop WL Ross & Co. on Wednesday, accusing Ross and the firm of charging millions in improper fees and taking the money for themselves.

According to the lawsuit, WL Ross charged at least $48 million in management fees to its funds’ general partners—which manage money on behalf of investors. The former employees, who retained interests in WL Ross funds after leaving the firm, contend that those types of fees should have been charged only to outside investors, not to the entities managing the funds.

I’m starting to change my mind on this. It might in fact be great optics, at least as far as Trump’s base is concerned, since absolutely nothing pleases them more than

Needs more cuck and white power references, if you’re going for accuracy.

This is my utter and complete lack of surprise.
This entire administration will go down as the biggest shitshow in political history.

The new head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau started work Monday — whoever that is.

President Trump’s pick to lead the consumer watchdog, Mick Mulvaney, arrived at the office early Monday morning with a bag of Dunkin’ Donuts in hand. Mulvaney, the director of the Office of Management and Budget, is the acting director of the group until Trump can get a permanent leader through the Senate confirmation process — at least, according to the Trump administration.

But the former head of the CFPB, Richard Cordray, appointed Leandra English to lead the group following his departure. He named her as deputy director on Friday, his last day at the head of the group, hours before Trump named Mulvaney. English has since filed a complaint in U.S. district court in Washington, D.C., to block the Trump administration’s rival appointment.

On Monday morning, English was communicating with CFPB staff through an all-staff email — a Thanksgiving message expressing gratitude and saying it was an “honor” to work with her colleagues. She signed the message, a copy of which was sent to NPR, as “Leandra English, Acting Director.”

Mulvaney, meanwhile, sent a competing all-staff, advising staff to “please disregard” messages from English in her “presumed capacity as Acting Director.” In that email, which was also acquired by NPR, Mulvaney celebrated his “very smooth transition” into the role of acting director — and invited staff to stop by for a doughnut.

The dispute has left CFPB staff “scratching their heads over who was in charge,” as Reuters reports.

Muppet Show.

The NYT has the best quote on this story:

“I knew on Friday who my boss was,” an employee for the agency, who only gave his first name, Ella, because he was not authorized to speak to reporters, said as he approached the bureau. “But thanks to this idiot, I don’t know.”

(He did not clarify which idiot.)

Sweet Christmas

Especially coming from the guy who never approved of the idea of the agency, and called it a “sick, sad joke.”
