Louise Linton, wife of Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, was forced to make her social media presence private after sparking outrage with an Instagram post that flamboyantly bragged about a slew of designer labels she was wearing while disembarking an official Air Force jet.
The caption on the now-deleted photo read: “Great #daytrip to #Kentucky! #nicest #people #beautiful #countryside #rolandmouret pants #tomford sunnies, #hermesscarf #valentinorockstudheels #valentino #usa”
But at least she gets how middle Americans feel:
“Glad we could pay for your little getaway. #deplorable” Jenni Miller, a mother of three living in Portland, had commented on the photo.
Linton swiftly lashed out at Miller with the following rant on the post, which has since gone viral:
Aw!!! Did you think this was a personal trip?! Adorable! 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 sacrifices toward our day “trip” than you did.
At some level who gives a fuck what Steve Mnuchin’s trophy wife says on Instagram? On another, you can be sure as shit that if an Obama appointee’s wife had done this, that appointee would resign within 24 hours.
These assholes have spent 30 years wanking about the size of Al Gore’s house so fuck them.
