The Moral Clarity of Wall Street

The kings and princes of Big Bidness kings have been dropping out of the Future Investment Initiative in Riyadh, better known as Davos in the Desert. They decided that pal’ing around (is too a verb!)  with ol Prince ‘Bonesaw’ bin Salman might not be good PR for their firms. Go figure.

But of course, Wall Street C.E.O.s,  who are sort of humanity-challenged anyway, were still expected to attend rather than damage long-standing blood-sucking some advantageous relationships. Finding themselves stuck between a PR-disaster and a bonesaw, a trio Bankster Bastards (ALLEGEDLY!) attempted to come up with their own Plan 9 From Outer Space!

The NYTimes:

Over the weekend, [JPMorgan C.E.O. Jamie] Dimon consulted by telephone with two other powerful Wall Street executives, the head of BlackRock, Laurence D. Fink, and Blackstone Group’s chief, Stephen Schwarzman, said two people familiar with the conversations. All three depend on the kingdom for revenue.

Mr. Dimon, Mr. Fink, and Mr. Schwarzman pressed Saudi officials to postpone the event, the two people said. The three executives and their staffs reached out to the Treasury Department and urged Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to press for the event to be postponed or to publicly make his attendance conditional on more disclosure from the Saudis about Mr. Khashoggi’s disappearance.

When that failed, they finally pulled out of attendance. Yay! Moral Clarity on Wall Street! Whodda thunkit!

Wait. What’s that, you say?

    Being cynical, I have to think that the media is only up in arms about the Khashoggi murder because he was a guy who some of them had lunch with- they never seemed to get so upset whenever the Saudis execute women for witchcraft.

      If only the media had been as aggressive in covering him (as they were on the freaking emails) as they are in defending themselves now… The irony that Prznint Stupid would call the press the enemy of the people when in fact they gave him lavish tongue baths during the 2016 Goat Rodeo kills me.

      Well, Karma’s a bitch. For all of us, I guess.

    I’d be surprised if these same Wall Street swells didn’t go ahead (on the down-low) with the conference by video conferencing from their offices or a secured conference room in the U.S. So long as their private planes aren’t seen at the Riyadh airport, they’d likely totally get away with that.

    But, does that make them RINOs? Asking for a friend whose initials are Dr. Chaps.
