‘The 1% shops for bathroom mats’: Internet roasts photo of ‘Bond villain’ Mnuchin posing with sheet of money

Published

on

Trump Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and his wife, Louise Linton, posed for a photo on Wednesday that featured the two of them holding up a sheet full of dollar bills while visiting the U.S. Mint.

Mnuchin and Linton were at the Mint to check out newly printed dollars that featured the treasury secretary’s signature. However, the fact that the couple looked like a pair of aloof and somewhat sinister aristocrats in the photos cause the internet to erupt in mockery.

In particular, many Twitter users compared the couple to villains you might see in a James Bond or Batman movie.

This is not the first time Mnuchin and Linton have been hammered for tone-deaf optics, as earlier this year they used taxpayer money to fly down to Kentucky so they could watch a solar eclipse from the rooftop of Fort Knox. Additionally, Linton earlier this year mocked an Instagram user who commented on a photo she took for not being as rich as her family.

Check out the top reactions to the couple’s latest antics below.

Trump tweets deranged rant about Mueller and the FBI as hearing draws nearer

Published

on

On Monday, President Donald Trump tweeted an angry invective against former special counsel Robert Mueller, who is slated to testify before the House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees on Wednesday, proclaiming once again — falsely — that the report showed "NO COLLUSION, NO OBSTRUCTION!"

He followed up this outburst with complaints about a litany of villains frequently promoted by Fox News, including the Hillary Clinton campaign and two former FBI agents who were fired after having a affair and who supposedly were biased against him in text messages (though no evidence has ever shown they improperly influenced Mueller's investigation):

Trump busted for lying about not having ‘talking points’ about Dem congresswomen

Published

on

President Donald Trump furiously denied reporting that his aides had supplied him with "reams of opposition research" about four Democratic congresswomen.

The president has been lobbing racist attacks at the first-year lawmakers since last weekend, and the Washington Post reported that aides had supplied the background research to urge Trump to question their patriotism and political ideas, rather than calling on them to leave the country.

"The Amazon Washington Post front page story yesterday was total Fake News," Trump tweeted Monday morning. "They said 'Advisors wrote new talking points and handed him reams of opposition research on the four Congresswomen.'"
