‘Mnuchin is a Moocher’: Twitter Slams Treasury Sec For Requesting Military Plane On Honeymoon

ABC News reported Wednesday night that Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin had requested government jet to take him and his newlywed wife on their honeymoon earlier this summer.

Mnunchin allegedly asked for a  U.S. Air Force jet, which according to an Air Force spokesman costs about $25,000 per hour to operate, to take him and his bride, Louise Linton, to their multi-destination honeymoon, which included Scotland, France, and Italy.

This has sparked an inquiry — according to ABC — from the Treasury Department’s Inspector General.

It also sparked quite a reaction from Twitter.
