Los Angeles Department of Mental Health Psychologist takes credit for Steven Mnuchin horse manure gift

Mod: It is always great to hear about a local boy making good. So many people just dream, and never act on what it is they really want to do. This guy is now becoming quite famous, in a worldwide media blitz sort of a way. His life will never be quite the same. You do know what psychologists say about repressing your desires and fears, right? Well, here is a psychologist who practices what he preaches, and he couldn't care less who knows it. After all, he broke this news himself. Can you think of a more appropriate metaphor?

Los Angeles psychologist takes credit for Steven Mnuchin horse manure gift (New York Daily News link): The supposed secret Santa who dropped a hefty pile of Christmas poo near Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s posh Bel Air pad said it represented the Trump administration’s tax plan.

Los Angeles psychologist Robby Strong took credit for the stinker of a prank by sharing a copy of the card left with the special delivery Saturday. He told the Daily News that he used the largest pre-wrapped box he could find and filled it with horse dung from a friend’s ranch.

“It was about as much as I could carry. More than that, it would have been difficult,” Strong said.

The salmon-colored envelope was addressed to “Stevie.”

Mrs. Mnuchin & Trump, We’re returning the ‘gift’ of the Christmas tax bill. It’s bulls--t. Warmest wishes, the American People,” the note read. “PS — Kiss Donald for me,” it continued. Strong was first identified as the fecal benefactor by Al.com early Monday.

“I couldn’t believe how easy it was. Anybody could have done it. That was the beauty of it in a way,” he said. “A lot of people are giving up hope these days. Sometimes, in the face of blind absurdity, the only thing you can do is absurd.”

Strong says he wished the poop had been stinkier. “With manure, they always mix it with hay,” he said. “To be perfectly honest, it was a benign pile of poop. Dog poop would have been way stinkier.”

As news of a gift-wrapped box packed with horse manure soiled the Christmas Eve news cycle, Strong shared a cheeky photo of himself posing with a present that appeared to resemble the one Los Angeles police examined Saturday night.

The Kentucky native — who works at the Los Angeles Department of Mental Health — said on Facebook that Secret Service agents interviewed him about the smelly stunt Sunday evening.

He doubts he will face federal repercussions from the agents. He felt bad they had to work Christmas Eve. “This is a glorified frat boy prank,” he said. “How much can you punish someone for dropping box of doody?” He said his two sons, 7 and 4, know about the stunt. “They understand that dad made a funny prank on mean people, who are taking money away from people,” he added.

Mnuchin has claimed that the tax plan will not only “pay for itself but will pay down the (national) debt.” Financial experts say it will substantially add to the debt.

Facts aren’t the only thing Mnuchin’s been accused of being cavalier with. In August, Mnuchin and his wife, Louise Linton, took a taxpayer-funded private jet to Kentucky, where they viewed the solar eclipse. Mnuchin maintains he was there on government business.

It was one of seven such trips he took at taxpayers’ expense. The Treasury Department’s inspector general found no wrongdoing.

    Saw this on CBS. A true patriot. Sounds like he sent a few packages to a few of Mnuchin's houses. A gift giver rightly needed this holiday season.

  2. Horse manure is an effective metaphor for much of what the Trump administration has claimed for itself.

  7. Ok, a prank yes, but with all the nutcases that have mailed dangerous items over the years, or left packages themselves, is this really something we should promote in positive light? You want your kids ‘famous’ for a similar prank? And, yes, both this Mnuchin moron and his boss are terrible for America.

  10. 7:20am. It could easily have been human waste in paper bags.
    I told my two son's, this is why the Mental Health system is broken, due to bozos like this guy Robby.
    He obtained employment in the Mental Health field. If he was out doing what he had been hire to to; counsel and check on those living on the streets, he could have collected the waste from his clients.
    This is a prime example of why the Mentally ill do not receive help, they have these mental midgets with degrees overseeing their paperwork and counseling.

  12. 8:12am. That was my point; Psy Robby, sits and does nothing.
    He shows incentive of getting something done by piling poop into a box, while he is being paid from taxpayer dollars, while on the employeers clock.
    Great example of government WASTE, close to home.

  13. This guy is from Kentucky, he should know that horses eat hay.
    Manure should be stinker?
    What outcome is he expecting?

  15. 11:12am. Study Constitutional law much? I thought that was a requirement for passing citizenship for this country.

    You require a refresher course in how elections are won.

    1. Gee Comrade and here I thought all along that being born in the US makes one a citizen. Everybody better send their babies to Con Law class so they can get a working knowledge of the Constution and only then become citizens.

  16. Engaging in pranks with poop, flaming or otherwise, will eventually end up with sugar and spice.
    Just as All Hallows Eve gradually ended up with many parents handing out goodies to the unruly children playing juvenile pranks.
    This oversized social goof from the Los Angeles Department of mental health, will find the gift of tax cuts to be valuable; he may even make a job change and recycle the horse apples as his way of combating climate change.
