An LA psychologist who thinks President Trump’s tax bill is a load of crap says he presented Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin with a stinker of a Christmas present, according to a report.

Robby Strong told AL.com he dropped off the box of horse manure at Mnuchin’s house as an “act of political theater” to hammer home the point that “Republicans have done nothing for the American worker.”

On Saturday, he posted several images on Facebook, one of which shows him posing with a shovel next to a gift-wrapped box, and another that shows the box full of what appears to be dung.

“I need someone to ride along and document my Secret Santa project. I’m going to hand deliver boxes of horse s—t to Steve Mnuchin over in Beverly Hills,” he added in a message.

Strong told AL.com that he delivered one box to a home Mnuchin owns in Beverly Hills, and another to the home in Bel Air, where the LAPD’s bomb squad responded to.

Another Facebook photo shows a card addressed to Mnuchin and Trump.

“We’re returning the ‘gift’ of the Christmas tax bill. It’s bulls—. Warmest wishes, The American People. P.S. – Kiss Donakld for me,” the card states.

“The thing I live by is a rule of transparency and I was exercising my First Amendment rights,” Strong told the Alabama news outlet.

“A few years ago when [a Supreme Court ruling] said that corporations are persons and money equals free speech, that is so absurd and my rule of thumb is now that if corporations are free speech, then so is horses—t.”

Strong claimed the Secret Service questioned him at his home, but did not arrest him.

“I just got interviewed by the Secret Service and I’ve now joined some of my heroes like Timothy Leary and Martin Luther King,” he told AL.com. “[The agents] just showed up in my yard.”

Strong pooh-poohed suggestions the prank could have alarmed Mnuchin or his family.

“It was a gift-wrapped package of poo, something a frat boy may do to another frat boy,” he said. “I was hoping to meet [Mnuchin.] I wanted to ring the door and hand it to him myself.”

He also said he didn’t violate laws about mailing hazardous waste.

“I kind of dodged that whole issue. Is there a law that you can’t drop off a box of poo? Not really,” he said.

Strong said he aimed to inspire people to join the movement of political advocacy.

“The fact that [Republicans] can be so brazen and act with such impunity tells me that we have to be more brazen with our activism and maybe a bit more aggressive,” he said.
