Watch Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin Get Humiliated, Again

Secretary Steve Mnuchin

Seen by many as a modern Louis XIV, Mnuchin received an icy reception when he spoke this week at UCLA.

True

Before he presided over massive tax cuts for the wealthy and avoided sanctioning Russia for trying to sway the U.S. election, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin was a Hollywood producer. Being a Los Angeles resident, Mnuchin possibly thought he'd receive a relatively warm welcome at the University of California, Los Angeles during a Monday speech on the administration's financial policies.

He did not.

Minority students slammed him during the speech, interrupting him loudly, with some students being dragged away by police.

"Attacking people who are in poverty!," screamed a young woman. "Taking away health care! Taking away social security! When black and brown people won't have anything to eat! And what is this money going to go to? To the military, to create more nuclear weapons!"

Watch below, via tweets by UCLA student Jacob Woocher and MSNBC contributor Scott Dworkin that were shared on Raw Story. The anti-fascist and pro-communism students involved in the disruption also shared video of the confrontation, shown below.

After the event, Mnuchin reportedly refused to allow UCLA to post video of his speech.
