Donald Trump’s former Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s wife Louise Linton is making her directorial debut, and her upcoming film only highlights how truly disconnected from the world she is. Linton wrote, directed, produced, and starred in the new film Me You Madness and plays opposite of Gossip Girl’s Ed Westwick. Her character in the film, Catherine Black is a “materialistic, narcissistic, self-absorbed misanthrope” hedge fund manager — at least, that’s how Linton describes her. The trailer for Me You Madness was shared this week in the midst of, well, the madness that ensued at Wall Street; which was perfect timing to make an extremely tone-deaf entrance in Hollywood.

“My name is Catherine Black. You may think that I’m a materialistic, narcissistic, self-absorbed misanthrope. I don’t deny it. I’m a hedge fund manager. I’m addicted to fashion, the accumulation of money, exercise, and sex. My life is incredible,” Linton says at the start of the trailer.

Her husband, a former hedge fund manager himself, told The New York Times, “I watched Louise create this film from first draft to final edit. I’m proud of her drive, tenacity, and spirit. The movie is highly entertaining and very good fun.” Prior to his time in the Trump administration, he worked as a Goldman Sachs banker and Hollywood film producer.

During Linton’s time in Washington, she landed herself in hot water after she posted a photo on Instagram showing her leaving a government plane with Mnuchin and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. Per Vanity Fair, her post included hashtags that showed off her seemingly lavish lifestyle, “#hermes, #valentino, #roulandmouret, #tomfordsunnies.”

The New York Times reporter, who has already seen the film, described it as a “sort of cinematic middle finger to the haters.”

“There will be people who love it and people who hate it,” Linton told the outlet. “But I don’t care what people say. I’m proud of my little film. It’s a potpourri of silliness.”
