5 p.m.

Louise Linton, the wife of Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, is apologizing for posting on Instagram about a designer-label outfit and then blasting a critic.

In a statement issued Tuesday, Linton says her post and response were "inappropriate and highly insensitive."

Linton on Monday posted the picture of herself getting off a government plane in Kentucky with Mnuchin. In her post, she mentioned several designer labels for her all-white outfit, including Tom Ford and Valentino.

The commenter responded: "Glad we could pay for your little getaway. #deplorable."

Linton, an actress, responded on Instagram by calling the commenter "adorably out of touch." She suggested she and Mnuchin contributed more to the U.S. economy and paid more in taxes than her critic.
