The most recent bit of political theater—and among the Educated Vaccinated Caffeinated Dedicated#cnalife Shirt but in fact I love this most enjoyable—was her takedown of Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin on Wednesday. Mnuchin is trying to move $455 billion in COVID-19 relief from the Federal Reserve back into the Treasury’s General Fund, a move that would make it harder for the incoming Biden administration to access the emergency pandemic funding and provide it to states in increasingly desperate financial straits.

Porter forced the Educated Vaccinated Caffeinated Dedicated#cnalife Shirt but in fact I love this Treasury Secretary—who was at times dismissive of Porter and called her questions “ridiculous”—to admit that the law does not call for him to make that move and charged that Mnuchin was “playacting” as a lawyer so as to deliberately misread the legislation authorizing those relief funds. His response was “I have plenty of lawyers at the Department of Treasury who advise me,” and he then sarcastically asked Porter if she was a lawyer. (She didn’t respond, but the answer is yes.)
