Twitter’s Most Hilarious Reactions To Steven Mnuchin’s Photo Shoot With A Batch Of Money

They look like Bond villains.

Donald Trump’s secretary of the Treasury, Steven Mnuchin, is a former Goldman Sachs banker and Hollywood financier who’s been criticized for appearing out of touch with the average American. His wife, Louise Linton, was chastised for an Instagram post of herself exiting a private jet, where she tagged all of the designers she was wearing. The Mnuchins are worth over $500 million.

Mnuchin has also been criticized for requesting to use military jets for non-governmental travel. He went so far as to ask for a military jet to take him and Linton on a European honeymoon but later rescinded the request.

On Nov. 15, Mnuchin and his wife appeared for a photo shoot celebrating the first batch of money to bear his signature at the U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing. The photos showed a leather-gloved Linton making seemingly seductive faces while Mnuchin gave a half-impressed smirk.

Given the couple’s reputation for being ostentatious, the photos of them with large sheets of newly printed cash was a tone-deaf move that prompted some hilarious responses on social media.

Seventy-five years ago, on January 27, 1945, the Soviet Army liberated the Auschwitz concentration camp operated by Nazi Germany in occupied Poland.

Auschwitz was the deadliest of Nazi Germany's 20 concentration camps. From 1940 to 1945 of the 1.3 million prisoners sent to Auschwitz, 1.1 million died. That figure includes 960,000 Jews, 74,000 non-Jewish Poles, 21,000 Roma, 15,000 Soviet prisoners of war, and up to 15,000 other Europeans.

The vast majority of the inmates were murdered in the gas chambers while others died of starvation, disease, exhaustion, and executions.
