(Newser) – Looks like another senior White House adviser's marriage stands divided: The latest public break comes after Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin called out 17-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg, telling her to go and "(study) economics in college." The Hill reports that Mnuchin's wife, Scottish actress and occasional lightning rod Louise Linton, got in on the action on Saturday with a brief Instagram post that went thusly: "I stand with Greta on this issue. (I don't have a degree in economics either) We need to drastically reduce our use of fossil fuels. Keep up the fight @gretathunberg." Raw Story notes that Linton tagged Mnuchin in the post, but the rebellion was short-lived: The post was taken down after less than 40 minutes. (Read more Louise Linton stories.)
