57-year-old Secretary of the Treasury Steve Mnuchin recently made headlines when he attacked teenage climate change activist Greta Thurnberg at the World Economic Forum in Davos.
Many took notice, including Mnuchin's wife, actress Louise Linton.
When asked about Thurnberg, Mnuchin responded mockingly:
"Is she the chief economist or who is she? I'm confused. After she goes and studies economics in college, she can come back and explain that to us."
Thurnberg responded quickly on Twitter, making it obvious a college degree wasn't needed to see we're headed in the wrong direction.
Many expected that to be the end of the drama, but then Louise Linton, Mnuchin's wife, spoke out on Instagram.
"I stand with Greta on this issue. (I don't have a degree in economics either) We have to drastically reduce our use of fossil fuels. Keep up the fight @gretathunberg."
Twitter was happily surprised by Linton's post.
About 30 minutes later, however, the post disappeared.
Of course, who knows what might happen next in such wild political times?
More than a couple people aimed jokes at Linton for her temporary step out of line.
Ultimately, it seems Linton's heart is in the right place even if her actions are not.
Sorry, Steve, it looks like the ladies are all against you on this one.
Maybe try not to make fun of high schoolers the next time you're on the global stage?
