Mnuchin's "Trophy Wife" Apologizes After Instagram Fiasco

Tyler Durden's picture

As was always likely, Treasury Secretary Mnuchin's wife Louise Linton has been forced to apologize for her Marie Antionette moment... A short and to the point statement read...

"I apologize for my post on social media yesterday as well as my response. It was inappropriate and highly insensitive."

We are sure that will satiate the twitter hordes that just got confirmation of everything they believed about 'the elites'.

As we detailed earlier, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin's 36-year-old (he's 52 btw) trophy wife Louise Linton has landed herself in a bit of hot water this morning after an epic social media rant against a taxpayer who took issue with one of her Instagram posts.

Apparently @jennimiller29 didn't appreciate Linton hastagging her entire expensive wardrobe (including #rolandmouret, #tomford, #hermesscarf, and #valnetinorockstudheels) while traveling on a taxpayer funded private plane, during her husband's trip to "check" if the gold at Fort Knox is still there, which prompted the following snarky comment:

"Glad we could pay for your little getaway."

And while most folks have learned to simply ignore the social media trolls, Linton apparently has not...which is great news for everyone else because it prompted the following epic rant in reply:

“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 [sic], 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!”

Others quickly chimed in: “Quite the populist hashtags on Louise Linton’s Instagram (Mnuchin’s wife), following her taxpayer-funded day trip to Kentucky,” joked Matt McDermott, a pollster and Associate Director at Whitman Insight Strategies.

“Curiously this Instagram post is no longer available. F–king hedge funders,” wrote one Twitter user. “Louise Linton is a hideous person, growing fat off of our tax dollars,” another said.

At one point during the evening, someone even went so far as to change Linton’s Wikipedia page to reflect her IG comment. “Never forget she posted this on Instagram,” the page read as of 10:30 p.m.

Alas, in the end, it seems that only the President is permitted to post outlandish social media rants as Linton's post has since been deleted and her account turned private.

Finally, since we know this is the only reason you clicked on this post you go:

The trophy-wife is just a Goldman Sachs “Participation Trophy”.   ;-)


runnymede's picture

Have some sympathy--she's had to blow some pretty disgusting dicks to get where she's got. 

Keyser's picture

She better have a good pre-nup, because I get the feeling she's going to need it... 

jcaz's picture

LOL-  she had the pre-nup worked out 20 mins after she met Stevie.......

CheapBastard's picture

I'm too Cheap to buy a wife like that.


Renting is much much cheaper.

Muncher ? I hardly knew her !

So let me understand this, to the Left this Hedge funder is bad but the Hedge funders that pay for their criminality are good?

SoilMyselfRotten's picture

In the real world she would have made $1000/hr for taking that trip with him. I think that's the sacrifice she was referring to.

The Cooler King's picture

It takes a lot of money to look that cheap!

Kotzbomber747's picture

I'm sure she's a real patriot. Who says that trophy wives, a.k.a. hookers, don't pay any taxes?

BullyBearish's picture

anybody check her purse when she left ft. knox...a gold digger's always a gold digger...

FKostanza's picture

The Nuch is all up in that gold digger ass, that's where he saw all the stored gold!

Steve Mnuchin announces that he has a need to announce that "gold is safe".

Hey bitch- your hair line is receding. Have fun getting old!

No problem - those big gold bars don't have designer logos--and she probably couldn't lift one.

"Have you given more ... in self sacrifice to your country?"

Elite Jews NEVER give in self-sacrifice UNLESS they get something in return.

I dislike trump but there is one thing we can agree on brothers: Wall Street is no friend of the people. I hate what these fuckers, both Steve and his worthless wife, represent and are doing to we the people.

nope-1004's picture

THAT ain't no trophy.  She's not even attractive, but for Steve it's like he hit the jackpot because he's such a slug.


DieselChadron's picture

I was just thinking the same thing.  amazing what passes for a "trophy wife" nowadays.

jeff montanye's picture

she could use a copy editor (or brush up on case and subjunctive) and probably a better publicist.

the university of west los angeles is pissed.


jaxville's picture

I don't know about that.  Nice frame on her.

The Gun Is Good's picture

She is furniture (a la Soylent Green) and unimportant. No one calls her by her name.

HardAssets's picture

Yeah, they put less breakfast cereal in the boxes nowadays too.

Less for your buck all around.

Not attractive? Are we looking at different pics, did you see that bikini shot?  Photoshop or not that is one fine bod.





Normalcy Bias's picture

Agreed. There's a lot of envy and denial going on in here.

She may or may not be a very nice person, but I refuse to believe there are many straight men here at ZH that if given the chance, wouldn't hit that like a piñata.

I keep hearing these terms, 'New York mafia' (or banking mafia), Gay Mafia (or Hollywood Mafia), 'Russian' mob, and last but not least, Globalists.   Is it just me or is this some serious use of euphemisms?   Almost makes me want to check the ethnicities/political views of those involved, to see why the use of euphemisms is so prominent!  Like people are afraid of calling something what it is?

Gee, a skinny blonde, that's original.
Impeccable taste Stevie, do you eat vanilla ice cream too?

Yea, but Hersheys...

In the land of the obese, skinny goes a looong way.  Nothing wrong with dog face with nice body... and TITTIES.

Jeez, I'm getting tired of upvoting here.  Is this what the kids today refer to as a...slut?

He must be so proud. Btw, the shoes are my giveaway to what's not really between those ears....

Nmuchen is a Goldman Sachs Alumnus and Skull and Bones member.

Thank goodness Trump drained the swamp and filled it with Skull and Bones Goldman Sachs alumni!

We are now great again!

But don't look at the debt-money system that creates a zero-sum debt / money "balance" and funnels most of the interest on the money to the Money Power who then buy up control of all major societal assets and rhetoricians to lie to a gullible public. Oh, and it systemically impoverishes us, too... just waiting for the economic collapse that was assured once the debt-money bubble was blown.

But, hey, who cares about reality. It is all about how you **feel**.

Ironically, the Bankster Trumpbots are acting as irrationally as the Bankster Obamabots, including their inability to see their own idiocy for what it is.

...there's no way she's a $1000/hr gal.  

SoilMyselfRotten's picture

Not all are great pics but the pink dress shot is hot

HowdyDoody's picture

So she went on the trip to Fort Knox? Mnuchin's statement 'the gold is safe' takes on a new meaning.

Pussy Galore & Ft Knox go together like hand & fist

' Cause Fort Knox is where the in crowd goes go to party. Somebody needs to put down the crack pipe and relax.

You nailed it. Liberalism is a mental disorder.

Sounds about as sincere as GS apologizing to Muppets after raping them, making them into counterparty suckers

I’m making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is what I do…

Michelle Obama and her 300 BFFs never did anything like this!



xavi1951's picture

And the mentally ill liberals go nuts.  They didn't care about Obama and the chimp taking expensive trips but watch out when a conservative does!

They can't even grasp the sarc in the responses.  Liberalism IS a mental disease!  The insane don't think they are.

divingengineer's picture

Trip is BS anyways. Either the gold is not there at all, or it's there but it has 10 claims of ownership to every bar.
