The campaign swimming in cash from Wall Street and Big Oil is now decking out its candidate in Giorgio Armani.
Hillary Clinton recently donned a $12,495 Armani tweed jacket while giving a speech on income inequality. The day coat, made of “napa lambskin cut into strips and woven on the loom with contrasting silk thread and bonded to technical tule,” is from Armani’s spring/summer 2016 collection.
The irony will escape loyalists who will vote for an even-indicted Clinton, and her devout media sycophants – but it was not lost in the Twitterverse:
You would think someone would say: “Hey, Hillary, maybe don’t give this speech on inequality wearing a $12k jacket”
I’m pretty sure Hillary Clinton would rather talk about merits of a $12,000 Armani jacket than a sales rack Target blue dress… any day.
Hillary gave the speech in a $12,495 Giorgio Armani tweed jacket, uhmm..yeah she knows all about being poor, right?
“She’s had to have spent in the six figures on this wardrobe overhaul,” Patsy Cisneros, a Los Angeles-based political image consultant, told the New York Post.
The leftist media, which slammed the lavish amount spent on Sarah Palin’s ensembles during her vice presidential campaign run in 2008, has remained mostly silent on Clinton’s high-priced fashion transformation.
Meanwhile, GOP candidate Donald Trump has often been spotted in Brioni suits, which can cost $7,000 each.
“Trump favors suits… He is not the sort of candidate having beers with voters at the neighborhood watering hole, and so he has little use for warm fuzzy sportswear, unless it is golf gear and he is promoting one of his golf courses,” wrote The Washington Post.
