‘We paid more taxes’: Mnuchin’s wife mocks critic who called her out for flaunting wealth in Instagram post

Published

on

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin’s new wife, actress Louise Linton, posted a photo Monday evening while exiting an American government plane on Instagram. It took almost no time for users to notice the post contained tags for designers like Hermès, Valentino and Tom Ford.

Naturally, many took to the comments of the post to voice their frustration with the Scottish actress and her apparent obsession with status, only to get some interesting replies back from Linton herself.

“Please don’t tag your Hermes scarf,” one user wrote. “It’s distasteful.”

“Did you think this was a personal trip?! Adorable!” Linton wrote in her response. “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.”

“Thanks for the passive aggressive nasty comment,” Linton ironically continued. “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.”

Twitter immediately jumped into action about the post, which has since been deleted from her Instagram.

“Now I’m curious to know what she’s ‘sacrificing’ every year,” NUMB3RS co-creator Nicolas Falacci tweeted.

On Monday, Linton was also in the news for allegedly fabricating parts of her ‘white savior’ novel about Zambia.

Trump supporters lose their minds when church shows Nativity scene in immigrant cages

Published

on

MAGA supporters are losing their minds after a photo of the Nativity scene at Claremont United Methodist Church was posted to Facebook.

The scene depicts Mary, Joseph, and the baby Jesus separated and put in their own cages, a reference to the families separated at the U.S.-Mexico border. Inside the church, the family is shown as reunited.

Senior minister Karen Clark Ristine shared the image on Facebook with the message hoping that everyone in the United States could see the photo and read the story for Christmas.

"The theological statement posted with the nativity: In a time in our country when refugee families seek asylum at our borders and are unwillingly separated from one another, we consider the most well-known refugee family in the world," she wrote. "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, the Holy Family. Shortly after the birth of Jesus, Joseph and Mary were forced to flee with their young son from Nazareth to Egypt to escape King Herod, a tyrant. They feared persecution and death."

Columnist nails Republicans for only caring about Hunter Biden now that his father is running for president

Published

on

One of the critical questions that must be answered by Republicans, according to one Washington Post columnist, is why they didn't care about Hunter Biden's position at Burisma for so many years.

In a Sunday piece, James Downie asked why Republicans didn't do anything about Hunter Biden five years ago when it was first revealed that vice president's son was on the board of a Ukraine energy company. The House and the Senate were being run by Republicans until this year. They haven't had problems with other partisan investigations against high-profile leaders. There were ten investigations into the Benghazi attacks, three hearings, 29 witnesses, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified for 11 hours. Yet, it was only after Joe Biden announced he was running against President Donald Trump that Republicans discovered an issue.
