If you guessed ‘offensive wardrobe’… you’re right!

With everyone focussed on the Kavanaugh hearings circus, you may have missed the news that our lovely FLOTUS in Africa.

She’s on her first solo international trip as FLOTUS.

Here are a few of the highlights, as covered by those who were with her. See if you can see guess what set people off:

Here she is leaving:

In Ghana:

(Nope. It’s not that. Keep scrolling.)

Malawi:

 

Kenya:

It’s a busy trip, to be sure. It’s not over yet, either.

From there, she went to Egypt…

So, now that you’ve seen a quick recap of her trip so far, can you spot what the shallow FLOTUS haters turned their attention to?

Here’s a tweet picked up by the NYT:

And replies:

We live in a world where Feminists complain that women are not treated as equals, with significant contributions of their own to bring to the world…

And every time a woman who doesn’t ‘quite’ fit their mold of what a strong woman ‘should’ look like, what do they do? They reduce her to a caricature, and dish about her clothing choices.

Would her critics have said anything this acidic about the LAST FLOTUS?

Not a chance.

Sure, Mrs. Trump DOES look great in most of the outfits she wears.

But if you think that’s all there is to her, maybe it’s not the RIGHT that has a shallow view of women.
