Trump Administration Floating Some Names For Last Head Of The World Bank

Ivanka or David Malpass? How about the sweet release of death?

Joke setup:


The World Bank is about to be leaderless. The Trump Administration hates everything that The World Bank embodies. The World Bank needs American support.

Joke punchline:

Possible names are already floating around Washington, including David Malpass, a current top Treasury official on international affairs, Nikki Haley, former ambassador to the UN, Mark Green, head of the US Agency for International Development, and even Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter. A Treasury department spokeswoman says it has received “a significant number of recommendations for good candidates” and was “beginning the internal review process” to make its selection.

You know things are especially and deeply batshit when Ivanka Trump is the second-most ludicrous name on a list to head The World Bank.

And, yes, David Malpass, we're insulting you here.

Enjoy your weekends, everything is broken.
