There’s been a lot of speculation and rumor in the last few days about whether or not banking legend and philanthropist Jamie Dimon will be Treasury Secretary. Wow – what exciting good news it would be if true.
Fox Anchor Maria Bartiromo first tweeted this fantastic news two days ago.

Then yesterday Fortune magazine reported that he’d turned the position down. We were very disappointed on reading this but then today CNBC reported that he’s still in the running.
Donald Trump is a racist, misogynist, maniac – who will undoubtedly do a lot of damage if he makes it to the White House (we still hope he’ll be stopped). But if the fabulously smart Jamie Dimon were to be appointed as Treasury Secretary some of the economic damage could be mitigated.
Jamie is Jewish which means he’s not only good with money but also has a real sense of fair-play and justice. He has not only made himself financially comfortable through all his hard work – he has also made JP Morgan even bigger and more successful as their CEO. Imagine how well off we will all be if he applies his amazing abilities to public service. Of course he will have to selflessly sell all his JP Morgan stock options (without being taxed) to avoid any conflict of interest – this sacrifice, that he’s prepared to make, just goes to show how altruistic he really is.
A Trump presidency is a very scary prospect but with someone as talented as Jamie Dimon at the helm of the Treasury, at least we won’t have to worry about deficits and the national debt.
I bet Mark Dice and the alt right are feeling pretty silly now – Jamie would never entertain such a retarded idea as pet rocks for money.
