Mnuchin Calls Comparisons to James Bond Villain a ‘Compliment’

On this week’s broadcast of  “Fox News Sunday,” Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said suggestions the picture of he and his wife holding up newly printed currency with Mnuchin’s signature made them look like James Bond villains was a “compliment.”

Mnuchin said, “I never thought I’d be quoted as looking like villains from the James Bond. I guess I should take that as a compliment that I look like a villain in a great, successful James Bond movie.”

He added, “I didn’t realize the pictures were public and going on the Internet and viral, but people have the right do that. People can express what they want. That is the great hing about social media.”
