‘First lady’ of Trea­sury has Scot a lot of nerve

Daily Mirror - - NEWS -

AN­THONY Hop­kins in Si­lence of the Lambs, Daniel Day-Lewis in Gangs of New York and Jeremy Irons in the Lion King... Amer­ica adores a Bri­tish vil­lain. But now they have a new one they all love to hate. Louise Lin­ton, Ed­in­burgh-born wife of Trea­sury Sec­re­tary Steven Mnuchin, has be­come the Cruella de Vil of the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion. She started off tag­ging her de­signer clothes with a gov­ern­ment jet as a back­drop be­fore pos­ing with sheets of money like a car­toon bad­die. This week, I learn Mnuchin’s col­leagues are in­censed by her an­tics. Ap­par­ently, she thinks noth­ing of walk­ing into his of­fice de­mand­ing “Where’s my hub­sies?” as he chats to the world’s fi­nance chiefs. Talk about drain­ing the swamp, Donny. Looks likes you’re re­stock­ing it to me.
