“Queer Eye” star Jonathan Van Ness trolled Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s wife Louise Linton during a live recording of his podcast “Getting Curious with Jonathan Van Ness.”

“You know who I really hate?” Page Six reports Van Ness asked the crowd.” “Mnuchin, the Treasury Secretary who has this Scottish wife, who’s a nightmare and she has a head full of terrible extensions … She’s kind of like the republican Erika Jayne, but I like Erika Jayne. She’s got like the knock-off bad version of Erika Jayne’s hair.”

Van Ness explained a story from last year about Linton posting a photo on Instagram of herself boarding a private plane wearing designer clothes.

Writer Jennifer Miller commented on the photo “Glad we could pay for your little getaway #deplorable.” Linton fired back calling Miller “adorably out of touch” and asking  “Have you given more to the economy than me and my husband?”

“Did you guys see that story? … Should we all get on Instagram and say something weird to her right now? This is really a lesson in two wrongs do make a right and it also shows that hell hath no fury like a gay man who saw a news article that they did not like,” Van Ness said.

Van Ness decided to troll a picture of Linton in the recording studio on her Instagram account.

“You’re not @theprettymess [Jayne’s handle] … We remember,” Van Ness wrote.

Other audience members, including Van Ness’s “Queer Eye” co-stars Tan France and Antoni Porowski, followed suit.
