Louise Linton, the Treasury Secretary’s wife, is deplorable on Instagram

Special screening of 'War Dogs'

I don’t have time to keep up with the people I consider secondary to the Deplorable Movement. It’s upsetting and aggravating enough trying to keep up with the main players, the people who will eventually be under indictment (fingers crossed). So before this week, I had paid no attention to this woman, Louise Linton. Now that I’ve done three minutes of research, I’m here to tell you that she’s basically another Megyn Kelly/Tomi Lahren/Random Bitchy Blonde Republican Woman. Louise Linton is married to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. Mnuchin is RICH. Like, really rich. That’s how he can afford Louise Linton and her expensive taste. Linton posted an Instagram yesterday of herself and her husband deboarding a taxpayer-funded plane in Kentucky. Linton tagged the IG with all of the designer labels she wore in the photo, #Valentino, #RolandMouret, #TomFord, #Hermesscarf and more. When someone called her out in the comments for being tacky and deplorable, Linton unloaded.

Actress Louise Linton, who married Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin in June, posted and then deleted a photo of her and her husband as they walked off an Air Force jet Monday that was akin to a fashion shoot tagging the designers she was wearing. After facing criticism from an Instagram user, Linton, who is married to the man who is fifth in the presidential line of succession, responded to the user with a long comment filled with classist attacks. Linton has now taken her Instagram account private, not allowing Instagram users who don’t already follow her to see her account.

Linton has tagged designers she appears to be wearing in previous Instagram posts, but it’s unusual, if not unprecedented, for the spouse of a Cabinet secretary to promote the designers she is wearing in any social media post, much less one that includes a photograph of her with her husband while on government travel. An Instagram user, called “Jenni M,” responded to Linton’s post and said, “Glad we could pay for your little getaway. #deplorable”

Linton’s response to Jenni M came after she appeared to examine Jenni M’s Instagram feed, making note of Jenni M’s family and children.

“@Jennimiller29 cute!….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 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!”

This is not Linton’s first encounter with controversy. In 2016, Linton came under fire for her self-published memoir, In Congo’s Shadow, which detailed her time as a student in Zambia. In July of 2016, Zambians, and their advocates, criticized Linton’s portrayal of Zambia as a war-torn, poverty-stricken nation with wild animals running through the streets. Linton was also criticized for portraying herself as a white savior. Under pressure, Linton withdrew the book from sale and pledged to give any proceeds to charity.

Mnuchin and Linton were in Kentucky on Monday to tour Fort Knox, which holds the federal government’s $200 billion gold reserves.

[From HuffPo]

You know the worst part of this story? THIS TRIP WAS UNNECESSARY. They went to Fort Knox for a “tour.” It wasn’t really a business trip that affected the future of the American economy. They flew to Kentucky on the taxpayer’s dime for a fun getaway and a stupid tour. Anyway, yes, this woman IS deplorable.

    Maybe she’s all salty cause her hair is yellow.

  2. Nicole says:

    Oh geez she’s THAT idiot that wrote that stupid book. Ugh say no more

  3. Esmom says:

    Yeah, nothing to add, she is standard issue deplorable. That wedding photo, though. Comedy gold.

  4. lightpurple says:

    Family members do, by law, have to pay for travel on government planes. So, she very well may have paid. Where this has gotten very sticky is that Orange Voldy has labeled Princess Nagini “staff” so she doesn’t have to pay her travel expenses, we do. By the way, whenever the deplorables defend Trump’s abuses with the Obama girls and Michelle’s mother, you can point out that there is public record of Obama paying for his family’s travel.

    But yes, this woman is outrageously tacky and she makes the same error that she is accusing others of doing – she has no clue what others have contributed to this country. Her husband is a cabinet member, not the same thing as military, firefighters, law enforcement, teacher or even a bus driver.

  5. Cannibell says:

    It looks like a Barbie Wedding from Hell.

  6. tracking says:

    Well, isn’t she just the perfect specimen of a Trumpette? Plastic, fake, and materialistic on the outside, ugly on the inside.

  7. Catherine says:

    She’s pure eurotrash.

  8. Marion C says:

    I’d be willing to bet based on percentage of income, most people pay more in taxes than she and her husband and have contributed more time, talent and treasure towards nonprofits/philanthropic causes as well.

  9. Green Is Good says:

    Plastic-faced tw@t.

  10. Tia Maria says:

    I’m so embarrassed this idiot is from the same country as me (Scotland). They were recent photographed swanning around Edinburgh with multiple costume changes for the pap shots. Urgh.

  11. Maria F. says:

    Noveau riche. Why brag about all your brands and designers if your husband is loaded?

    Apart of the fact that it is totally classless to do this as the wife of a member of cabinet.

    They are all not fit to be representing the US, but it also feel it shows that there is not leadership in the adminstration, nobody who is schooling these newbies about what is appropriate or not.

  12. Courtney says:

    She’s been married for all of 2 months. Before her marriage, her tax bracket was one of a D-List actress/model/whatever. So she can stop it with the “we” shit.

  13. Neelyo says:

    She’s hideous. In Zimbabwe, she’s known as White Savior Barbie.

    Mnuchin is having a horrible week and I’m loving it.

  14. littlemissnaughty says:

    We all know you cannot buy class or good taste so why is she trying? Girl, you may want to invest in a better colorist, that is some brassy-ass yellow.

    I’m sad she made that IG account private but her website is f*cking hilarious.

  15. emma33 says:

    Hahaha…I cracked up when I got to the bit about “In Congo’ s Shadow”, because I remember that controversy. The twitter responses were EPIC, because it turned out that people in Zambia actually have the internet and were able to call bs on her white saviour nonsense.

  16. Talie says:

    I first heard about her when her book came out and caused crazy backlash for the white savior thing.

  17. Christin says:

    Is visiting Fort Knox a usual part of the cabinet job? I have no idea.

    Rather than get snarky about her silly response, I’m remembering my Dad and many others who helped guard Fort Knox through the decades. #uniformbyarmy #serviceofmany

  18. Tiffany says:

    Yacht girls pay taxes. I thought they were paid in cash.

  19. Kakoo says:

    What a wanker she is.

    You’d think with all her husband’s money she’d be able to afford decent injectables in her face.

  20. Lizzie says:

    ALL (clap) OF (clap) THESE (clap) PEOPLE (clap) ARE (clap) TACKY (clap) TRASH

    louise – your rockstuds were over before they began – 3 years ago. those high waist white pants look like an adult diaper. your haircolor looks like you left $7.99 nice’ n easy on for too long. your wiki page says you’re 36 but your neck says 45. take a seat.

  21. Mia 4s says:

    On a totally unrelated note, remember Marie Antionette? Man that was a crazy historical time wasn’t it? 😒

    Someone needs to fire the sanitation workers in charge of the White House. They’re letting far too much garbage sit around that place.

  22. Hannah says:

    First result for a YouTube search for ‘Louise Linton’? “Hollywood’s Newest, Sexy Bombshell, Louise Linton”.
    In. Yer. Mind. Granted, she didn’t write that but she does come across like she really buys into her own hype.

  23. Tate says:

    She is f@cking THAT guy and she is making fun of other people’s lives?? Oh, ok…. 🙄

  24. S says:

    To be clear a third-wife of Goldman-Sachs, piss-poor, self-published fabulist, failed actress is hash-tagging her obnoxiously expensive outfit like she’s a Kardashian and this is group always referring to others as the “cosmopolitan elite”? (And claiming HRC was the Goldman Sachs candidate 🙄)

    Oh and, as for taxes, I’m guessing this bargain basement Queen of Scots using the royal “we” and her hubster have paid 1/10th, income-percentage-wise, as much as my family. Not to mention, our company has never had to be bailed out by more tax dollars than 100 Steve Mnuchin’s will ever contribute, because it was run so recklesssly it would have other otherwise collapsed the global economy.

    Brag away, sis. There’s not one iota of your life I crave. #TargetLeggings

  25. Sharon Lea says:

    Ugh, that comment she made about how her husband has ‘paid more taxes’ than the commenter. Remember when Warren Buffett honestly stated he paid less taxes than his secretary?! There are tech giants who like to say the same thing, they employ thousands and they are paid $1 a year as a salary blah blah blah they ‘are so great and altruistic.’ Well they are paid in stock in their company and are taxed far lower, like 15%, than an employment tax like all of us pay!

  26. Va Va Kaboom says:

    I can only imagine what the Doyennes of New York and D.C. Society think of her. Tryhard behavior like this never gains you respect, even if you’re an otherwise kind and worthwhile human being. Which, let’s be frank, this woman is not.

  27. Betsy says:

    What a low class hag.

    And since it does probably mean so much to her: her brassy yellow hair is as trashy as she is. Hope the husband who bought her gets some nice silvery bracelets clapped on him soon. #handcuffsasjewelry

  28. MellyMel says:

    Money doesn’t buy you class that’s for sure. And all those hashtags!! It’s drives me insane ugh!

  29. Tess says:

    The comment above hers by “ralphale” is pretty gross and I feel like by the comment saying he’s a black man it only further fuels this whole racist mindset of the administration.

    • Reef says:

      Ralphale is what/who stuck out to me, too. Like bro, are you ok? I don’t have an Instagram but I’m curious if that’s a real person or a bot.
      I’m really wondering why the Deplorables are so silent about these ostentatious shows of wealth w/tax-payer money. It’s bizarre. Mrs.Obama couldn’t go to Target without an uproar, but folks are oddly silent about this.

    • Veronica says:

      Honestly, the fact that he specifically identified by age and race within the first line makes me highly skeptical of the validity of those claims to begin with. Fake accounts designed to troll and create invalid support for garbage behavior are infamous in feminist and pro-minority forums.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      Trump bots have been using stock images of minorities to create bot accounts. It is possible that was one of them.

  30. Jerusha says:

    She’s perfect for the trump administration. $$$$$$$ and rubbing it in people’s faces, that’s what they’re all about. And on a trip to Kentucky! Nice touch, classless, clueless cow!

  31. mayamae says:

    This woman was born in 1980?

  32. teresa says:

    I believe her married name is now “Louise Linton Mnuchin Antoinette, Third Time is the Cheapest Divorce.”

  33. tw says:

    Tacky, ugly-on-the-inside, designer-tagging mean girl.

  34. Chetta B. says:

    All I see is an over-surgeried face and a persona as shallow as a spring puddle, profoundly empty-headed and materialistic.

  35. meowren says:

    y’all, i got into an fb argument with strangers who twisted my words (surprise) and ultimately wound up comparing me to a white supremacist. i deleted and blocked the messages and people, but i’m still shaken, as i take these things quite personally. i know i have a safe space here with like-minded people, so i want to thank y’all for calming me down from my ugly social media high with your valued insight to this horrible administration. ❤️

  36. SandyC says:

    I refuse to believe that Steve Mnuchin is married to a label-obsessed gold digger! I just don’t believe it!

  37. D says:

    She’s the classic mean girl, Regina George all grown up.

  38. Jeremy says:

    I mean she did go to Fort Knox, not Santa Barbara. Ever look at how many useless trips Congressmen and women take to go “fact finding”? They don’t do it as much as they used to but Fort Knox has strip clubs and strip malls. Not exactly a vacation destination.

    However the designer shout out is still tacky.

  39. Avery says:

    Just imagine being in your 30′s and being so insecure and self loathing that you are already pumped full of botox and lip injections. Looking like you are 50 years old.

  40. Kakoo says:

    I just looked at the hashtags and cackled at #nicest #people and #hermesscarf

    Bless her.

  41. Veronica says:

    LOL. Okay, honey. You keep telling yourself that.

  42. Chaine says:

    Steve Mnuchin always looks like a cardboard cutout of himself.

  43. purple prankster says:

    I remember the angel haired mzungu. maybe she was hoping to get her book turned into a movie starring her ofcourse! i looked at some of her interviews and honestly she was quite attractive, its sad to see her looking so much older and so much more plastic such a short time later.
    was her instagram post sponsored or does she get her self esteem from showing people how much money she has?she sounds very unhappy to me. did steve cut her allowance and tell her it was going to taxes? is this the great sacrifice of which she speaks?she sounds jealous of the other lady and her cute kids.

  44. Penelope says:

    Wow, what a snarky, condescending, completely out of touch, nasty, rude, bitchy comment. She comes off as tacky and nouveau riche, too. Oh, and her grammar is awful.

    Classy woman!

  45. Holly hobby says:

    This tacky ass fake Barbie Also held her wedding at the White House. Did we pay for that too. Steve Mnuchin can pay for his own travel. But what can I say about him? He stuck to Orangino after he said the Nazi’s are fine people.

    Hell is running out of space for these clowns!

  46. K says:

    Her face is so caked, that looks like stage makeup from the 1930s. She’s a young woman making herself look like one of those old ladies who won’t age with dignity. IDK, maybe the doll look does it for her husband. If that comment is any guide, it can’t be her personality.

  47. Neelyo says:

    Mnuchin’s Twitter is on fire.

  48. K says:

    Oh my goodness. The woman she tried to snark at (own goal all the way, little will she appreciate) posted a response:

    ““According to my 20-second Google search, [Linton is] an aspiring Penthouse model who married an old rich guy in a wedding officiated by a homophobe and attended by other couples of similar age and beauty gaps. She says she’s a nice person. I doubt it. There weren’t any Nazi sympathizers at my wedding. #byelouise.””

    • AMA1977 says:

      I wonder if JenniMiller29 has an Amazon Wish List or something, so I can buy her a thank-you gift? Jenni, if you see this, set one up, girl. I would loooove to send a token of my appreciation for your wit and humor. Seriously, I needed a laugh and you gave me one.

      I am neither surprised nor amused by the erstwhile (third) Mrs. Mnuchin. She is exactly who I would expect a textbook swamp-dwelling former Goldman shill who is dumb enough to buy himself a little “blonde” “treat” to marry. I bet he fools himself into thinking she really loves him, too. I am exhausted of the whole lot of them and wish they would crawl back under their gold-plated rock.

    • magnoliarose says:

      For a man with money he has budget taste in women. They aren’t even doing the stereotype with any imagination.

      • Christin says:

        His second wife (mother of his three kids) was prettier, fresh and normal looking. And he (the foreclosure king) looked happy in photos. He didn’t have the cardboard, frozen look.

        If this one is supposed to be a trophy wife, I think he got the booby prize.

        Jenni M is on TV right now, and said she and her husband likely pay a higher marginal tax rate. She said they don’t make enough money to hide. Burn!

  49. lavin says:

    That ladies hair, looks like one of those 1970′s doll heads, where you could just style the hair, etc. it was just a big doll head with yellow blonde hair.

    Does Melania keep her hair brown as an act of defiance to Donald?
    I think when he met Melania and before Baron was conceived she was a blonde….. LOL Just saying.

  50. Ash says:

    Look up the pics (sorry I’m too lazy to find a link!) of their honeymoon. It’s so disgusting and over the top and gross. The pics of them coming out of the airport are ridiculous! And this is coming from someone who takes a suitcase for a weekend! You don’t need all that and it’s gross how she decided how much designer clothing could she possibly wear in a day and be photographed in! Sorry I’m bitchy today bc I’m still waiting on the big payout Trump said he was going to offer small businesses. Still waiting! 😂

  51. Patty says:

    I’m disappointed in the “brother” who said he wanted to marry someone/something just like that. Shaking my damn head.

  52. Who says says:

    OMG they are the perfect couple for the Trump administration. Rich white guy with a trophy wife. I wish people would stop bashing Louise Linton I’m sure she married Steve Munchin for love. The more I read and watch about some of Trump’s administration, the more they become the best examples of cartoon villains, but this is real life.

  53. Eurogirl70 says:

    Coco Chanel:

    Luxury is not the opposite of poverty. It is the opposite of vulgarity. This administration is the epitome of vulgarity. Can you imagine Jackie O doing this? Or Mrs. Obama? People know quality, and if you have to shove it in their faces, then all you know is the price of everything but the value of nothing! All the wrong people have money anymore!! Case in point, the Kardashians.

  54. hogtowngooner says:

    Proof that money can’t buy class. What a tacky, petty woman.

  55. why? says:

    Last week people were calling Mnuchin to resign because of how he stood there and smiled as during the King of Lies and Fake News planned meltdown in which he continued to blame the counter-protesters and spread hate. Now this from his wife? When will enough be enough for the GOP? The reason why the stock market keeps having these false positive is because of people like Mnuchin. What policies has he pushed to make his stock do well? How much of a profit have he and his wife made from this presidency?

  56. Baltimom says:

    I can’t keep all these Deplorable Barbies straight!

  57. PassTheCovfefe says:

    you KNOW that for the third marriage, the pre-nup is iron clad. So, relish in it now, because you’ll be at the curb soon enough, Your Majesty!

  58. gwen says:

    Here’s a breakdown on how much this all cost:

    The Tom Ford sunglasses retail for $445, the Hermès scarf for $940, the Valentino heels are $995, and the Roland Mouret trousers are $1,395 (though they are now on sale for $348). The cost of a Hermès Birkin bag usually starts around $10,000 but can go upwards of $150,000. Regardless of which one exactly Linton slung on her arm, it most certainly cost thousands of dollars. This brings the low estimate for her outfit—which managed to stay perfectly crisp and white en route from Kentucky—to $13,775.

  59. Julia says:

    She’s even uglier on the outside than she clearly is on the inside — vile personality.

  60. Trashaddict says:

    I love the glorious posters of Celebitchy – calling out hypocrisy everywhere!
    With humor and class. You all make my day.

  61. JosieOhs says:

    I am dying. Went to college with her, and remember when she was auditioning for a reality show even then. Deplora-reality!

  62. Cleo says:

    She certainly puts the D (list) in Deplorable.

  63. Cinderella says:

    Aww, what happened to the Linton Collection of handbags, you little entrepreneur, you.

    More like entrepre-NOer

  64. Jenny says:

    That wedding dress is deplorable. Guess money can’t buy taste. Just my 2 cents.

  65. Sara says:

    You would think that money could buy her blonde hair that is not yellow
