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.

YOU will be RESPONSIBLE for loss of rights if you riot

A new poster is circulating social media, calling for a record-breaking armed protest to take place across America on Inauguration Day. Here's Glenn's advice for those considering attendance: DON'T GO. No matter who is responsible for the poster or for any possible future chaos that may take place, the far left and the media WILL blame Trump supporters regardless of the facts. And because of that, if you attend and partake in rioting, you WILL be responsible for the loss of our rights that will come as a result. Don't go. But, listen to this clip to find out what Glenn thinks you SHOULD do on Inauguration Day instead…

Can Frustrated Conservatives Learn from the Tea Party? | Matt Kibbe | Ep 92

The nation was shocked as the "Save America" rally in Washington, D.C., devolved into a siege of the U.S. Capitol. The day after, as heads were still spinning, Glenn sits down with Matt Kibbe, host of BlazeTV's "Kibbe on Liberty," to look at what led to this: Woke authoritarianism is in power, lockdowns are unending, and the Left has finally found out how to weaponize fear. The media is all too happy to watch the country burn, as long as the Left is holding the torch. But Glenn and Matt remember the lessons learned from the Tea Party, Martin Luther King Jr., and other movements that found success through peace. Conservatives and libertarians must find a path forward so we have more 9-12 marches, fewer stormings of the Capitol, and real change from those who believe they rule over us.

Here's how the left used COVID-19 to DESTROY us & our kids

COVID 19 was used to not only destroy businesses, morale, and education but to destroy us and our kids, too. The left is in control of nearly everything now, and they've used that power to make us feel alone. Glenn says he believes a miracle could happen to turn this great nation back towards the principles on which it was founded — BUT, we must turn back towards God first. Life DOES have meaning and tomorrow WILL be better.
