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.

She wrote:

"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?

Books are life. Recently studies have been published that reading for fun, reading for knowledge, just interest in reading in general is down, and that is a tragedy.

We've become too obsessed with our binge watching and ADHD mindset that we've lost focus on one of life's greatest joys... literature.

There are some stories and books that should be a mandatory read for life. There should be age benchmarks that require knowledge of certain books in order to progress. I know, how "1984" of me. ;)

Redditor u/bugtanks33d wanted to hear about what literature we should all be familiar with sooner than later by asking:

What's a book everyone should read at least once in their lives?

It's always our high school dreams, as shown by every high school teen movie ever, to marry the popular girl or the jock. But high school is high school for a reason; life does not really last outside of the walls of high school in the way it did within.

It might feel like a challenge to come back at someone who has just insulted you, but it's easier than you think.
