Twitter Celebrates After Trump’s Treasury Sec. Receives Gift-Wrapped Horse Poop: ‘Most Appropriate Gift Ever!’
A suspicious Christmas gift from “the American people,” to Treasure Secretary Steve Mnuchin was delivered at his Los Angeles home Saturday evening, triggering a bomb scare. Police scrambled to respond to the situation. The package turned out to be a bunch of crap. Literally.
The gift-wrapped package, which was discovered at 7:30 p.m. local time, was addressed to the treasury secretary and signed as being from “the American people,” according to ABC-affiliated television station KABC News.
However, the scare turned into a farce when it was discovered that the package contained horse manure, and the laughter was heard rippling through Twitter, where the treasury secretary is a regular roast candidate.
According to the station, the scene was cleared after the contents of the package were revealed at 9:30 p.m. local time (12:30 a.m. EST).
Though cleared of being a bomb, it is not known yet if the “gift” would be presented to the treasury secretary.
What is known is that the prank received a big thumbs up from Twitter users. While some thought it was a funny idea to send horse manure as a present to Mnuchin, others applauded the sender and appreciated his bravado.
Mnuchin recently came under fire after he requested a government plane to fly him to his honeymoon in Scotland, France, and Italy.
His request sparked an inquiry by the Treasury Department’s Office of Inspector General after which Mnuchin was unable to use the taxpayer-funded jet to fly to Europe for personal purposes.

Treasury Secretary lives in LA’s most expensive neighborhood; I know it is against the law, but someone sending him 💩 in the mail brings a smile … https://t.co/mFhCla4sqE

Funny prank, but someone stole horse manure out of my stable and I think they should've at least asked politely. I would've happily given up some of my horse's droppings. Yes, I do own a horse and his name is Buckets.

Someone sent a package full of manure to Trump's Treasury Secretary today. Seriously, don't do this kind of thing. It distracts the secret service and law enforcement from being able to do their jobs. But wow, a box full of crap sure is a fitting metaphor for Trump and his goons.

I'm sorry but it was an insult to the poor manure that never envisioned having to ever deal with Mnuchin!
