Oooh Shade! White House Chief Economic Adviser Gary Cohn Is Said To Have Faked A Bad Connection To Get Donald Trump Off The Phone!
We can’t wait to see what Donald Trump has to tweet about this.
According to Senator Tom Carper of Delaware, White House chief economic adviser, Gary Cohn, recently faked a bad connection to get POTUS off the phone. Baaahaha.
Apparently Trump called from Asia in the middle of a meeting of Democratic senators discussing tax reform. After 15 minutes, Carper suggested Cohn say their losing contact so that they could get back to business.
Carper recalled telling Cohn:
“Gary why don’t you do this, just take the phone from, you know, your cellphone back and just say, ‘Mr. President, you’re brilliant! But we’re losing contact, and I think we’re going to lose you now, so goodbye.'”
And that’s what Cohn did. Burn.
