Remember when Melania Trump wore a white dress to the GOP convention and liberals had to pass the smelling salts? The Philadelphia Inquirer’s fashion critic Elizabeth Wellington actually said the attire was aggressive and scary. Yes, really.
Melania Trump looked absolutely stunning… And that dress. The off-white Roksanda cotton and satin long-sleeved sheath was just lovely…
So while Trump appeared flawless on the Cleveland stage Monday night, whether she intended it or not, her all-white ensemble displayed the kind of foreignness that is accepted by her husband’s political party. To many, that outfit could be another reminder that in the G.O.P. white is always right…
On Monday night, Melania Trump was a not-so-subliminal billboard for what’s looking like the Trumpian view of an ideal America. And if that’s the fashion statement she intended to make, it’s a very scary one.
Melania didn't get the memo on the "white dress micro-agression" thing, because she recently wore a Calvin Klein white dress when she entertained Akie Abe in a Japanese Garden Tour. Wow... her brazen racism knows no bounds. However, according to the Washington Examiner, Democratic women decided to collectively wear white to President Trump's speech so they could send a political message. Was their message one of racism, hatred, and polarization, too?
In a statement, Rep. Lois Frankel, D-Fla., said they will be wearing white to "unite against any attempts by the Trump administration to roll back the incredible progress women have made in the last century."
Frankel chairs the Democratic Women's Working Group, which said their commitment to women's rights includes affordable healthcare and Planned Parenthood, equal pay, paid sick and family leave, affordable child care, secure retirement and "lives free from fear and violence."
Frankel also asked other Democratic members of the House — there are 66 — to wear white to "stand in solidarity with the women of our nation."
According to the National Women's Party, white "symbolizes the quality of our purpose."
Got that? When Republicans wear white, it's because they're trying to subliminally convey how much they hate black people. When Democrats wear white, it's because they love women, liberty, and progress.
If Democrats didn't have double standards, they'd have no standards at all.
