Source: Ann Romney slammed for $990 Shirt, Michelle Obama praised for $6,800 jacket
Obama supporting liberal news media attacks Ann Romney slammed for $990 Shirt while praising Michelle Obamas $6,800 jacket.
The item of clothing set off a media firestorm, with the Romneys widely accused of being “out of touch” with average Americans. When First Lady Michelle Obama attended an Olympics reception for heads of state at Buckingham Palace, donning a Mendel cap sleeve jacket from the 2013 Resort collection. The price tag? Only $6,800 dollars!
This time, the Washington Post simply described the intricacies of the jacket and noted that Mrs. Obama has previously been criticized for “not dressing up enough for Queen Elizabeth II, so she stepped up her game.” No snide remarks, no outrage over the cost, no suggestion she was “out of touch.”
Former political publicist Angie Meyer said “The media continues to relish their roles as liberal bullies, and have relentlessly bullied the Romneys from the beginning. It is pure hypocrisy at its finest.” Glenn Selig of The Publicity Agency concurred.
Dan Gainor, VP of Business and Culture for Media Research Center in Washington DC, said it’s “just the latest example of a consistent media theme that somehow Romney is too wealthy and out of touch because he’s a millionaire. Except of course that Obama is also a millionaire. “
