Treasury Secretary’s Wife Louise Linton Shows Her Claws And It Goes All Bad
You all will likely remember Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin from his recent run-in with Congresswoman Maxine Waters when she had to “reclaim her time” but now he’s also becoming known for his c*nt of a wife, 36-year-old Scottish-born actress Louise Linton. Linton sparked the ire of a legion of folks on social media after posting a picture of the couple’s “Great #daytrip to #Kentucky,” her wardrobe tagged with a slew of designer labels including Tom Ford, Roland Mouret, Valentino and Hermes as she and her husband stepped off a government jet.
While Linton was showered with comments criticizing her for the distasteful post, she opted to respond to this one from Jenni Miller, a 45-year-old Oregon mom of three, according to The New York Times.
“Glad we could pay for your little getaway #deplorable,” Miller wrote.
Linton’s clapback is EPIC — largely because her levels of bi**hy snobbery managed to surpass the original post:
“Aw!!! Did you think this was a personal trip?! Adorable!” she wrote. “Do you think the US govt paid for our honeymoon or personal travel?! Lololol. Have you given more to the economy than me and my husband? Either as an individual earner in taxes OR in self sacrifice to your country?”
“I’m pretty sure we paid more taxes toward our day ‘trip’ than you did. Pretty sure the amount we sacrifice per year is a lot more than you’d be willing to sacrifice if the choice was yours.”
“You’re adorably out of touch. Thanks for the passive aggressive nasty comment. Your kids look very cute. Your life looks cute. I know you’re mad but deep down you’re really nice and so am I. Sending me passive aggressive Instagram comments isn’t going to make life feel better. Maybe a nice message, one filled with wisdom and hunanity [SIC] would get more traction. Have a pleasant evening. Go chill out and watch the new game of thrones. It’s fab
Linton’s response included emojis of a curled bicep and a face blowing a kiss.
Welp… Don’t know about y’all but that doesn’t sit too well with us. Linton ultimately deleted the post and turned her account private, but we’re gonna bank on the damage being done already.
This isn’t the first time Linton’s turned folks off by being out of touch. Mashable reports that just last year the actress self-published a tone-deaf and delusional memoir In Congo’s Shadow that was so offensive Zambia’s embassy issued a response.
Here’s an abstract of the book:
Gunshots echoed through the bush and seemed to be getting closer. I couldn’t imagine the awful, sporadic acts of violence that were being committed as the village was ransacked. Fear and anger for the children consumed my thoughts… As the night ticked interminably by, I tried not to think what the rebels would do to the ‘skinny white muzungu with long angel hair’ if they found me. Clenching my jaw to stop my teeth chattering, I squeezed my eyes shut and reminded myself how I’d come to be a central character in this horror story.
Seriously? No wonder it sparked the hashtag #LintonLies.
Mnuchin’s now wife (Pence officiated and Trump attended the couple’s wedding this June) apologized and took the book off the market.
Seems like we’ve found our very own Marie Antoinette for this century’s evil empire…
