Is Steve Mnuchin a Lizard?

How does Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin feel about the public's reaction to that photo of him as his wife posing with a sheet of dollar bills like some Batman villains?

It appears he's flattered.

Some folks — and I’m looking at the picture here, which you can’t see — say that you two look like two villains from a James Bond movie,” [Fox News host Chris Wallace] said. “I’m sure you’ve heard that. I guess my question is: What were you thinking?” [...]

I guess I should take that as a compliment that I look like a villain in a great, successful James Bond movie. But let me just say, I was very excited of having my signature on the money,” he added. “It’s obviously a great privilege and a great honor and something I’m very proud of.”

No, that is not a compliment.

I mean, I suppose it could be taken that way if you're a filthy rich sociopath.
