Income inequality is a popular issue for many Democrats but you couldn’t pick a worse person to address the issue than Hillary Clinton.
She has circled the globe in recent years giving speeches to big banks and financial firms amassing a fortune of over $20 million dollars, not to mention the millions raised through the highly suspect Clinton Foundation.
The New York Post just reported that during a speech which included the topic of income inequality, Hillary was wearing an Armani jacket which cost over $12,000 dollars:
The surprising strategy behind Hillary Clinton’s designer wardrobe
Hillary Clinton’s New York primary victory speech in April focused on topics including income inequality, job creation and helping people secure their retirement. It was a clear attempt to position herself as an everywoman.
But an everywoman she is not — she gave the speech in a $12,495 Giorgio Armani tweed jacket.
The polished outfit was a stark contrast to the fashion choices Clinton has made in the past. As first lady, Clinton wore frumpy pastel skirtsuits. As New York senator and secretary of state, she attempted a more serious look, wearing pantsuits in a rainbow of colors — so mocked that they sparked memes. In comparison to Michelle Obama, who’s become known as a style icon during her time in the White House and appeared on the cover of Vogue twice, Clinton has never been able to nail down a personal aesthetic that works for her.
