CEO Lloyd Blankfein abruptly quits Goldman Sachs to pursue bee-keeping, closer friendship with Oprah
NEW YORK -- On Tuesday Goldman Sachs' longtime CEO Lloyd Blankfein shocked Wall Street by abruptly announcing he was quitting the behemoth investment bank to pursue bee-keeping and a closer friendship with Oprah.
"I'm a soulful guy. And manipulating regulators, destroying the middle class, and positively torturing the poor just wasn't fun anymore," Blankfein told employees in a heartfelt Pinterest Post.
He wished everyone at Goldman Sachs luck under President Hillary Clinton and Treasury Secretary Elizabeth Warren.
Blankfein noted that Clinton's White House is the administration first in fifty years to shut Goldman Sachs alumni out of the highest levels of government.
