The wife of Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin spent the Fourth of July drinking champagne with her husband in Los Angeles before their celebrations were disturbed by California’s 6.4 magnitude earthquake
Louise Linton, 38, took to Instagram on Friday to share several snaps from the festivities, including one that showed her snuggling up to her high-powered husband on a sun lounger.
Clearly feeling proud of her adopted country, Scottish-born Linton was seen rocking a bright red bikini that was the exact same shade as the MAGA caps made famous by her husband’s boss – President Donald Trump.
Meanwhile, Mnuchin – who has a reported net worth of $300 million – dressed down in a blue shirt and Oakley sunglasses as he gazed upon his glamorous wife.
The couple, who married in 2017, were joined by a bevvy of bikini-clad friends for the Fourth of July party, held at their $26 million home in the suburb of Bel-Air.
Linton was celebrating not only the national holiday, but also the birthday of one of her ‘best friends’ , model Shay Londre, who appeared in several of the social media snaps.
In other images, Linton was seen tending to the barbecue before petting her pet pooch as she showed off her eye-catching engagement ring.
The following day, the actress revealed the celebrations were interrupted by the 6.4 magnitude earthquake which ‘rolled’ their Bel-Air home.
The lavish mansion shook again the following day, when the city was struck by a subsequent quake, measuring 7.1 on the Richter scale.
She wrote on Instagram: ‘Thought we were all done with the earthquakes and then the house starts rolling again. We’ve moved to 7.1. Big difference between 7 and 8, friends. Let’s start earthquake preparedness just in case!!’
The pictures posted by Linton of the festivities were far less flashy than those she once used to share with her followers.
The actress, who once appeared in the 2011 telemovie ‘William & Kate’, came under fire in August 2017, after she shared a photo flaunting her designer wardrobe as she disembarked a private jet paid for by the government.
She recently told Los Angeles Magazine that it ‘sucked’ ‘being hated’.
The blonde beauty candidly told the publication: ‘Most people know me for that awful Instagram post. …Look, I made some rookie mistakes. I understand why people are angry about me getting off that government plane tagging fashion brands. It was a stupid thing to do.’
Elsewhere in the wide-ranging interview, which was published last month, Linton urged the public not to judge her by the views of Mnuchin.
‘Look, all of my besties are gay. I did the Pride Run last year and again this year…You should measure me by my actions, the friends I keep and the charities I support, not by the politics of my husband’.
