‘It’s OK to notice she dresses extremely well’: Mollie Hemingway didn’t find Melania Trump’s coat ‘macabre’

First things first: Why are we even talking about the first lady’s wardrobe? We’d assume that was sexist, but some progressives just couldn’t let it go when Melania Trump made an appearance at the White House with hero dog Conan Monday afternoon.

Joan Walsh, who found the who affair “terrifying,” thought that the first lady’s coat was “slightly macabre,” although she did acknowledge that “others may find it lovely.” Now we’re just waiting for the White House to unveil this year’s Christmas decorations, after last year’s hallway of red trees inspired at least four different pieces criticizing it in the Washington Post.

The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway sent out a notice to the press that it’s OK to say that Melania Trump looks good.

We’re old enough to remember just a couple of weeks after the election when designers who hadn’t even been asked to design clothing for Trump were preemptively refusing to. Still, it looks like she’s survived the fashion boycott just fine.

From the New York Post in September:

Over the course of the next six months, Eve noticed how little coverage first lady Melania Trump was garnering for her work in the White House. So she started a matching account called “AlwaysMelania.” Today the Ivanka and Melania accounts have 125,000 and 240,000 followers, respectively, and are among the most popular accounts of their kind. The largest fan account for Melania, “MelaniaTrump.style,” is devoted to her fashion choices and boasts over 292,000 followers.

One would think running such a large and influential Instagram account would be a point of pride for a teenager. But because of the feverish anti-Trump atmosphere, Eve doesn’t feel comfortable telling friends at school about her activities or even letting me use her last name in this piece. She told me: “With the current political climate, I prefer erring on the side of caution.”

Great job, Resistance.

Remember earlier this month when medical professionals at Boston Medical Center held a protest because Melania Trump had stopped by to spotlight the hospital’s cuddle program for babies born addicted to drugs or alcohol?
