Mnuchin posts photo claiming he’s ‘taking control of the #news for the day’

Donald Trump’s Secretary of Treasury Steve Mnuchin posted a photo of himself in reportedly in an ABC News control room captioned with “Taking control of the #news for the day.”

  • Mnuchin appeared on ABC News’ “This Week,” which was originating from the network’s Washington, D.C. studios this week.
  • The control room was identified as an ABC News one by CNN media correspondent Brian Stelter.
  • The photo’s caption, while likely meant in jest, was mocked for its use of the word “control” as media organizations increasingly become the target of the Trump administration.
  • Meanwhile, Trump supporters latched on to the post as a way to further bash the “mainstream media.”
