While waiting alongside other administration officials and lawmakers before a scheduled event at the White House on Thursday morning, a live video stream captured what appeared to be billionaire capitalist and U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross scraping something from the corner of his eye and then putting it in his mouth. Seemed like an eye booger, but impossible to know for sure. Pretty sure U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross just ate an eye booger on national television. No big deal, but...
The move, says one advocate, is "shortsighted, ridiculous, and likely unconstitutional."
"This is the kind of thing you say when you have no soul."
"Wilbur Ross is all of us right now. Donald is putting everyone to sleep."
