U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin is on the money, literally -- and his wife couldn't appear happier about it.

On Wednesday, the two took a tour of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing along with U.S. Treasurer Jovita Carranza to witness firsthand the production of crisp, new $1 bills -- the first form of currency that will bear their signatures.

And, judging from the photos, Linton appeared excited about it.

A change in the Senate tax-overhaul plan that would expand a temporary income-tax break for partnerships, limited liability companies and other so-called "pass-through" businesses won the endorsement of a national small-business group today.

In fact, very excited about it.

Naturally, the people of Twitter took notice of the photos of the happy couple and the newly printed cash.

And, naturally, things appeared to go downhill from there.

Many used the opportunity to make accusations about Linton's excitement.

Others raised concern about the treasury secratary's wife's level of clearance.

And several users made critical remarks about Linton's choice of attire.
