Linton raised eyebrows in 2017, when she got into a public tiff with an Instagram commenter. Mnuchin told Elle: “I think social media has made her misunderstood and she is not at all the person that has been portrayed.”

Linton told Elle that she and Mnuchin are very different: “He’s ice and I’m fire. I like to try everything, taste everything. I love to explore, and he is much more habitual. He likes what he likes. We balance each other out nicely.”
