Outrage After Hillary Does THIS in Public… She Has No Shame

Just when you thought Hillary Clinton could not be any more shameful she out does herself.

From The New York Post:

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.

But now, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, whose dowdy and matronly style has haunted her throughout her entire political career, is making her first real effort to play the fashion card. She’s upgraded the designers she wears, opting for high-end European labels, and hired a team of image experts that includes former Michelle Obama aide Kristina Schake, who’s been tasked with shaping her style and making her more relatable. She’s even rumored to have “Veep” makeup artist Barbara Lacy on the payroll.

But this new look comes with a hefty price tag. “She’s had to have spent in the six figures on this wardrobe overhaul,” says LA-based political image consultant Patsy Cisneros. Clinton, who loves to say that she left the White House in 1993 “dead broke,” is now dressing the part of someone who can command $325,000 for a single speech. Factoring in the designer labels she’s wearing, plus the number of new outfits she’s been photographed in over the past year, she’s likely spent at least $200,000 on new clothes to wear on the campaign trail.

And there’s a good chance that cash is coming out of her own pocket. For example, no designers are actively promoting that she’s wearing their labels — something that probably wouldn’t happen if she were getting her threads for free. Whether she’s given discounts is harder to say, although she has been spotted at stores like Bergdorf Goodman — so she is buying some items off the rack, a stark contrast to Michelle Obama, whose staff calls designers directly.

What a disgrace!
