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?

Our past is chock full of "life lessons" that are actually just crap. It's easy to spoon-feed children drivel. They're sponges ready to absorb.

Then those children become adults that require rewiring.

Between culture changes and generations of upheaval, there is a lot that we are left to examine when out in the world. Look at where we are as a society right now. We are stuck in the throes of a culture war stemming from generational misinformation.

So where do we begin?

Some people are just plain nasty, that is a sad fact. There is true evil in this world, and we see it on display every single day. It can often make one lose all hope in "humanity."

At my core, I try to believe that most of us have good hearts, that are connected to kind souls. But my beliefs are tested almost hourly.

One of the scariest things is trying to pinpoint whether or not most of these people are just callous and rude or, quite possibly, they simmering sociopaths, destined to be the villain in a Dateline NBC or podcast episode.

Let's compare notes.

There's nothing quite like enjoying some food you like. It's one of life's pleasures.

It'll always be there for you, right?

Plot twist: Nope! Foods get discontinued all the time. And the heartbreak this leaves behind is real.

People told us all about the foods they miss after Redditor Artistic_Flood asked the online community,
