Somebody doesn’t want Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin to have a very merry Christmas. In fact, somebody wants his holiday season to be as shitty as possible.
According to KTLA, a holiday gift box that was addressed to Mnuchin was discovered at his Los Angeles home on Saturday evening, and inside the package was a load of horse manure.
Originally, police thought it to be a suspicious package but later determined it wasn’t a threat. (Unless, of course, you have an overly exaggerated sense of smell.) A Christmas card addressed to Mnuchin and President Donald Trump also reportedly was discovered. The Secret Service reportedly is investigating the incident.
Unsurprisingly, much of Twitter loved the crappy Christmas greeting.
What's the difference between Steve Mnuchin and a box of manure?

Bomb squad called to Steve Mnuchin’s home after someone left a big box of Louise Linton movies on his doorstep.

No no no. You did it all wrong. For full effect, you're supposed to put the manure in a paper bag and set it on fire.

Mnuchin and his wife, Louise Linton, became a meme last month when they posed with a sheet of freshly-minted dollar bills, because the couple is, in fact, so very rich. Later, Mnuchin admitted that he was delighted that he had been branded a James Bond villain because of that money shot.
And if anybody is going to get the gift of horseshit during the holidays, it’s almost certainly going to be a Bond villain.
