How refreshing it is to hear from an adult for once.
Treasure Secretary Steve Mnuchin recently spoke at UCLA on the economic initiative the Trump Administration is pursuing when it comes to economic opportunity and exacting financial punishment on bad actors around the world.
By all counts, a speech like this would, under normal circumstances, bore a class full of college student to the point of tears. A soporific affair, indeed.
But, because Mnuchin is an official in the Trump Administration, crazed college socialists came out in droves to protest a benign speech on why Kim Jong-un can’t buy stocks on the U.S. stock market. And they just had to cause a ruckus.
When Mnuchin began to talk sanctions on North Korea, someone in the audience regressed all the way back to infancy and started to wail and gnash their teeth.
You can see the brainless protest below:

There’s way more where that came from, including one student screaming that Mnuchin is “full of s***.”
You can watch the entire spectacle below:
Mnuchin, for his part, doesn’t take this kind of juvenile crap lying down. He calls out these students to their faces and demands they leave. “If you think I’ve got nothing to say, maybe you should just leave,” he declares after one unruly student went into tantrum mode.
Mnuchin is exactly right. While other Trump Administration officials have balked at these kinds of protests, Mnuchin took them straight on, and challenged the students over their irrational behavior.
We need to see more of this. More Trump W.H. staffers should stand their ground and refuse to concede to disruptive students.
