The Republican tax plan’s passage has sparked protests on Capitol Hill, as well as in Los Angeles, where a psychologist named Robert Strong said he hand-delivered a gift-wrapped package filled of horse manure to the home of Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Sunday night—Christmas Eve—in order to protest the tax plan.

Robert Strong: “I didn’t sent it; I hand-delivered it. … This new tax law that’s going to kick millions of people off of healthcare and ultimately going to give the corporations tons of money at the expense of the average working poor family, I felt like I needed to do something that was equally absurd.”

That was Los Angeles psychologist Robert Strong.
