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.
