At times over the weekend, most of Goldman Sachs’s leadership seemed to be milling about the Hamptons - semi-tanned, semi-relaxed and almost conspicuously not mentioning a certain New York mogul-turned-U.S.-president.
That’s been “a little consuming,” Lloyd Blankfein quipped at a cocktail party in Sagaponack on Friday night.
Bloomberg News reports that Blankfein didn’t let the latest political turmoil consume his socializing as the summer season went into high gear at parties and fundraisers across Wall Street’s favorite playground. At the event for the New York Stem Cell Foundation, the Goldman CEO had conversations about Harvard, country club memberships, his grandson (who calls him Pop Pop) and his wife’s golf game.
“She’s a professional golfer!” he said.
“I cannot putt,” Laura Blankfein replied.
And so the chatter went - even as Trump loomed, delivering a speech that day in the middle of Long Island.
