President Trump’s Economic Recovery Council members have been revealed and the first name that stands out on the list is United Airlines CEO Oscar Munoz, who has plenty of time to lobby for bail outs since he’s turning over the reins to Scott Kirby next month.
Under Munoz’s leadership our country can take an aggressive stance to restarting business activity, “going full David Dao” on the deep recession, no apologies. In 2017 the FAA Administration hoped to get dragged off a plane himself because United’s bumps became so lucrative they were stimulating the economy.
Munoz can even personally bring construction back online by stealing sand from a public beach for his home.

Thanks to Arne Sorenson’s socially-distanced presence in the room we’ll inflate the nation’s currency, and eliminate all taxes – to be replaced with mandatory “society fees.” Each guest (citizen) will be charged a nightly fee for roads, police protection, and travel industry subsidies but will be entitled to solo use of a kayak once per week. His Green New Deal will mean the elimination of single use plastic shampoo bottles in homes, with everyone buying in bulk.
Intercontinental Hotels Group’s Elie Maalouf will serve on the council, too. He’s neither an economist nor an epidemiologist, but he did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.
And with Hilton CEO Christopher Nassetta’s leadership, everyone suffering during these challenging times will use their three month trial Honors Gold status for free breakfast.
Carnival Cruise Line’s Micky Arison, Royal Caribbean’s Richard Fain, and Norwegian Cruise Lines’ Frank Del Rio also serve on the council, so expect that we’ll accelerate the return to normal by building up herd immunity, requiring that everyone become infected on a cruise ship. And we’ll prevent this from ever happening again by requiring one cruise per year for everyone in the country. The Society Fee we’re now paying for will include medical care for up to 3 viruses contracted per trip.
Finally, I see that Barry Sternlicht (Starwood Capital Group) is part of this group. If Sternlicht were to meet with Sorenson on the sidelines and come up with a deal to acquire Starwood from Marriott, that’s probably the best outcome that could come out of these meetings.
