From the Washington Post -

Last month, Mnuchin and Linton took a government aircraft to Kentucky on a trip that involved viewing the solar eclipse, drawing wide condemnation and accusations that the former Goldman Sachs banker and Hollywood producer was using public funds for potentially voluntary travel as Trump seeks to rein in government waste.

The Kentucky trip ended within miles of the path of totality, the narrow band across the United States where the moon totally blotted out the sun during the solar eclipse. Mnuchin viewed it from one of the most restricted sites in the world: Fort Knox.

On Thursday, Mnuchin also addressed this controversy, saying the trip was to see Fort Knox and not the eclipse.

People in Kentucky took this stuff very seriously. Being a New Yorker, I don’t have any interest in watching the eclipse,” he said.

Emphasis is mine.

Well, being a New Yorker, is there anything of interest to him besides being a New Yorker and making lots of money?

That's maybe the dumbest statement I've heard from a politician not named Trump in quite awhile.
