On August 21, 2017, Secretary Mnuchin and his wife Louise Linton travelled to Lexington, Kentucky, purportedly for the Secretary to present remarks along with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell at a luncheon sponsored by the Louisville chamber of commerce, Greater Louisville Inc. 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 was briefly named interim chief executive of Dune Entertainment when Mr Mnuchin stepped down to become treasury secretary, the Hollywood Reporter writes. Adorable. Did you think the U.S. government paid for our honeymoon?

"Did you think this was a personal trip?" "Have you given more to the economy than me and my husband?"

The passive aggression in her comment was palpable.

The nonprofit government watchdog has requested "copies of all records concerning authorization for and the costs" related to Mnuchin and Linton's use of the plane on Tuesday, August 21st.

"Your kids look very cute".

She added: "Adorable! Do you think the USA govt paid for our honeymoon or personal travel?!" They specifically want "copies of all records concerning authorization for and the costs of Secretary Mnuchin's use of a government plane for any objective since his appointment as Treasury Secretary." Why?

Linton deleted the post and made her Instagram page private.

Linton also appeared in the VH1 reality series "Hopelessly Rich". "I apologize for my post on social media yesterday as well as my response", she said.

News outlets dubbed this Ms Linton's "Let them eat cake moment", a reference to a comment reputedly made by French queen Marie Antoinette upon hearing the citizens of Paris had no bread.

Mnuchin is playing a central role in the White House's effort to overhaul the tax code and raise the debt ceiling, and the recent distractions have the potential to overshadow his work in those areas.

Louise Linton, the wife of Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, blasted as "adorably out of touch" a person who criticized her Instagram post in which Linton depicted her designer-label outfit.
