Fittingly, the millionaire Mnuchin viewed it in a gilded location - atop Fort Knox, which holds almost $2 billion in gold.

A watchdog group suspects an official trip by the United States treasury secretary may have been planned around the solar eclipse.

(It's worth noting that the photo got a fair amount of "Angry" responses.) When asked about the coincidence of being at Fort Knox on August 21, McConnell said it was just an added bonus and that "Kentucky was the best place to see it, hands down". The organization thinks the travel may have been used as cover for Mnuchin and his wife to watch the solar eclipse.

A watchdog group is already demanding the government turn over documents for the trip, after Mnuchin's wife, Scottish actress Louise Linton, went on an online tirade against a reader who slammed her promotion of top designer brands on a photograph she posted. After a woman named Jennifer Miller posted a critical comment about the post, Linton defended the couple's luxurious lifestyle by posting a lengthy comment full of classist attacks against Miller. Mitch McConnell on the lawn of the U.S. Bullion Repository at Fort Knox, where the moon blocked 97 percent of the sun.

In addition to Monday's trip, CREW requested all other records of Mnuchin's use of a government plane as Treasury secretary. While it is not customary for the spouse of a Cabinet member to accompany said Cabinet member on official business, Linton often does - the Treasury Department has been sure to make it known that the couple reimburse the government for the cost of her seat.

"Have you given more to the economy than me and my husband?"

"It turns out that Mnuchin did view the eclipse while he was in Kentucky, and from an extraordinary place: Just outside the path of totality, from the roof of the nation's fabled Fort Knox, atop almost $200 billion in American gold", The Washington Post reports. When Miller responded by saying "Glad we could pay for your little getaway #deplorable", Linton lost it, condescendingly telling her " "Cute! Aw! Either as an individual earner in taxes OR in self sacrifice to your country?. I'm pretty sure we paid more taxes toward our day "trip" than you did.

"Just seemed ridiculous and quite frankly offended me as someone who paid for part of their trip", Miller told CNN.

"Louise Linton did not receive any gifted merchandise, compensation or loans from Valentino".

Linton later apologized through spokesperson, calling the post " inappropriate and highly insensitive".
