Louise Linton Said She 'Sacrifices' More Than Other Taxpayers.

This week's Trumpery presidency Internet sideshow came in the form of a couture-heavy Instagram post from Louise Linton, a Scottish-born actress and the wife of Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.

When Linton highlighted her designer clothing and accessories (which together cost more than $13,000, as Vanity Fair estimated) after a trip to Kentucky with her husband, user jennimiller29 responded, "Glad we could pay for your little getaway."

Linton, in turn, handed her taunters more ammunition, condescending to jennimiller29 ("Your life looks cute") and insulting that user for making less money than she does. Linton made her account private shortly after the post, but screenshots captured her reaction.

"I'm pretty sure we paid more taxes toward our day 'trip' than you did," Linton said to jennimiller29. "Pretty sure the amount we sacrifice per year is a lot more than you'd be willing to sacrifice if the choice was yours," she added, followed by a flexing bicep and a winking kissy face emoji. Linton apologized late Tuesday, as CNN reported.
