Several Instagram commenters pointed out that, in a country where an
estimated 43 million people live below the poverty line and 6.4
million children live with food insecurity, flaunting ostentatious
wealth at least partially supported by taxpayer money goes beyond
tackiness and approaches sadism.

Oh, please. I'm all for the government providing for the needy. In fact,
the tax code should be used for the explicit purpose of redistributing
wealth. However, let the rich have their fun.

In response, Ms. Linton posted a vertiginous wall of text suggesting
that rich people are nobler and more self-sacrificing than poor people
because they pay a lot of taxes,

Of course, that's equally silly. The rich need to understand that the
only reason they are rich in America is because in their grace, the
American people allow them to be rich. The wealthy shouldn't bite the
hand that feeds them.
