Ok but put my name on it

The Post reports:

The Treasury Department has ordered President Trump’s name printed on stimulus checks the Internal Revenue Service is rushing to send to tens of millions of Americans, a process that could slow their delivery by a few days, senior IRS officials said.

Also a process that coddles and encourages Trump’s disgusting vanity and egomania.

It will be the first time a president’s name appears on an IRS disbursement, whether a routine refund or one of the handful of checks the government has issued to taxpayers in recent decades either to stimulate a down economy or share the dividends of a strong one.

Because normal presidents, even the very empty-headed ones like Bush and Reagan, understand that they don’t cause everything.

Trump had privately suggested to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, who oversees the IRS, that he allow the president to formally sign the checks, according to three administration officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly.

“Steve, can I sign them? Can I? Let me sign them, Steve. I hafta sign them. I’m the great and powerful Oz, and I need to sign the checks. Let me do it, Steve.”

But the president is not an authorized signer for legal disbursements by the U.S. Treasury. It is standard practice for a civil servant to sign checks issued by the Treasury Department to ensure that government payments are nonpartisan.

Huh? Whut? I don unnerstan, use shorter wurdz.
