When you run after your thoughts, you are like a dog chasing a stick: every time a stick is thrown, you run after it.

“My sites were picked up by Trump supporters all the time. I think Trump is in the White House because of me. His followers don’t fact-check anything — they’ll post everything, believe anything.

No one stops to think: Wait a minute! These are all groups Trump has showered with affection, with the exception of Muslim immigrants – who persecute the other four. ’

Mnuchin got an agreement that guaranteed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. would absorb almost all the loan losses [of IndyMac] after a certain threshold. After renaming the bank [to OneWest], it was profitable within a year.
