New Money, Literally: Steve Mnuchin, Louise Linton Strike a Pose With Dollar Bills

Just a couple of Republicans doing their best to relate to everyday Americans … not.

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and his new wife, Louise Linton, posed for pictures with sheets of $1 bills on Wednesday after Mnuchin’s signature was put on the dollar bill. The new notes are expected to start circulating in December.

Linton sparked criticism earlier this year after posting an image of herself getting off a military jet, adding hashtags referencing her designer wardrobe and deriding a commenter for having less money than she does.

On today’s show, Glenn mocked the decision to pose with new $1 bills as the best PR decision Republicans have made since President Donald Trump threw paper towels at hurricane victims in Puerto Rico.

GLENN: Republicans are now within striking distance of two big objectives. Tax reform. The G.O.P. of the individual mandate sometime later today. Margin of error is really small. Yesterday announced he's going to be the first Republican to break off and vote no. Will anyone follow his lead?

Now, the -- the hours leading up to the vote are really crucial. You can almost here the gears churning over at the White House communications department from all across the country. How can they improve the final? How can they be a little more relatable? And in the process, how can they improve their chances the answer was so obvious to them.

Deploy this Treasury Secretary. Steve ma nutrition and his smoking hot wife for a super hot selfie with a bunch of sheets of cash. Public just won't know what hit them. Right? It's going to be a PR coup the likes of which would make even Mugabe recoil in fear. So that's what they did.

He held up a giant sheet of crisp dollar bills, that were the first to bear his signature. And his wife standing next to him gave a smoldering gaze at the camera, dressed uncannily like Kylo Ren, she kind of looked ready to lightsaber frenzy. Hope hicks must have and enjoyed this masterful work of communications art. The tax reform and individual mandate vote were as good as one now.

The administration hasn't looked this slick since the president launched paper towel packages at gatherings of that was another good one.

The only thing that could have made this look better, maybe, is if ma nutrition hard based hitting pop song rocked the house. Anyway, it's a win-win. Let's give the communications department their props. You crushed it. Game, set, match.

INSANITY: High schooler ARRESTED after not wearing mask at school tells her story

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

Jason Whitlock: Raiders coach fired by NFL as a ‘SIGNAL’ to others

Raiders Head Coach Jon Gruden was forced to resign (fired) by the NFL on Monday due to 'misogynistic' and 'homophobic' language found in several of his old, private emails. But Jason Whitlock, sports writer and host of 'Fearless' on BlazeTV, tells Glenn that Gruden's words never should have resulted in his job lost: 'We should have accepted his apology and kept it moving.' But instead, Whitlock says the NFL chose to use Gruden as a 'signal' for all other employees who may oppose the football organization's current, far-left political stances: 'Taking over sports, taking over the NFL, is crucial to the goals of the left and what they're trying to do.'

How an ‘orchestrated’ revolution is bringing America TO ITS KNEES

Victor Davis Hanson, Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, joins Glenn to discuss his new book, 'The Dying Citizen.' He explains how America's hippies from the 1960s are the progressive elites running our institutions today and how their 'well orchestrated' moves have created a top-down revolution that's 'bringing us down to our knees.' So, what's the solution? Davis Hanson tells Glenn what we can do to push back against the far left today…

Who Is More Evil: Government or Facebook? | Robby Soave | Ep 120

The Left and Right agree: Social media companies like Facebook are abusing their power — whether through censorship or harmful, groupthink-creating algorithms. But is the solution really more censorship and regulation, like government fearmongers and leftist "whistleblowers" have insisted? Glenn sits down with the senior editor at Reason, Robby Soave, who has a much more refreshing solution laid out in his latest book, "Tech Panic: Why We Shouldn't Fear Facebook and the Future." Politicians have weaponized the fear we have about social media. So, maybe we should be looking at the positives. Glenn and Robby take a look at the (very familiar) history of tech panic and censorship, balance the consequences of changing Section 230, and expose the real threat to the future of free speech: Progressive tyranny entrenched in the old school media.
