‘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.

‘Hypocritical’ Republicans busted for disappearing now that Trump has exploded the deficit

Published

on

In a "Reality Check" segment on CNN on Thursday morning, contributor John Avlon called out GOP fiscal hawks who have suddenly disappeared from the public square now that a Republican president has exploded the national debt.

Introduced by host John Berman, who asked, "This morning new numbers from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) confirm it: The national debt and deficit are much worse than thought. So where is the party of fiscal responsibility in times like these?" Avlon broke it down.

"While President Trump was busy proclaiming himself 'the chosen one,' you might have missed more bad news in the form of data," Avlon smirked. "Brand new CBO numbers shows the budget deficit is skyrocketing, projected to rise 25 percent over last year and heading to over $1 trillion next year. Tax revenues are $430 billion below where they were expected to be before the Trump tax cuts while spending in is in drunken sailor territory adding $1.7 trillion in the next decade."
