World Bank, World Joke

That’s not where it goes, honey.

Q: Why did the post office recall  stamps depicting famous bankers?

A: People were confused about which side to spit on!

Guys, it nearly happened:

Former President Donald Trump sought to name his daughter, Ivanka Trump, to lead the World Bank in 2019, but then-Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin intervened to block the appointment, according to The Intercept

As the White House assembled a list of possible successors, Ivanka Trump emerged as a favorite to the then-president, who told The Atlantic that she would have been an excellent choice because “she’s very good with numbers.”

However, according to two sources who spoke to The Intercept, the discussion surrounding Ivanka Trump’s possible ascent to the top of the World Bank was not simply from the Washington, DC rumor mill.

Then-President Trump wanted his daughter in the role, and Mnuchin had to step in to prevent the selection.

“It came incredibly close to happening,” a source told The Intercept.

When contacted by The Intercept, representatives for Mnuchin and Ivanka Trump did not respond for comment. Queries from the news outlet to the World Bank and the Trump Organization also yielded no response.

Imagine the grifters running the world bank? The mind boggles.

    “good with numbers”

    Because if there’s one thing that I’m _very_confident that the heads of banks spend their time doing, it’s working the numbers in spreadsheets.

    These fucking people.

    • What possibly makes you think she of smiling serenely in white rooms’ knows which end of a spreadsheet is which?

      Although I certainly believe she believse that it is standard business practice to have two sets of spreadhseets for every business: the real one, and the one you show the banks…

    In addition to all the TFG-related shit that did happen and continues to happen, it is no surprise that we learn of the shitload of shit that almost happened, and that we will continue to learn of yet even more shit of which we were not aware. The only question I might have, as if I give a shit, would be how did Munchy survive this rebellious act and how much credit should he be given if any.

    Imagine their surprise when they discovered that they couldn’t walk in and make a withdrawal…or get a loan.

    One of the qualities I look for in a leader for the World Bank is how well they can pull off the kotex tied to the noggin look. It’s not for everyone, obviously.
