I noticed “Tom Ford” trending on Twitter this morning and wondered why. For those who don’t know, Tom Ford is a fashion designer who’s made waves for refusing to dress First Lady Melania Trump.
“I was asked to dress her quite a few years ago and I declined. She’s not necessarily my image,” Ford once said on “The View.” “Even had Hillary won she shouldn’t be wearing my clothes, they’re too expensive. I don’t mean that in a bad way; they’re not artificially expensive, it’s how much it costs to make these things. I think the first lady has to relate to everybody.”
“Given this President’s beliefs about ‘made in America’–I think the clothes they wear should be made in America,” he said. “I think that whoever is the President, or the First Lady, should be wearing clothes at a price point that are accessible to most Americans, and wearing clothes made in America. My clothes are made in Italy, they’re very, very expensive. I don’t think most women or men in our country can relate to that, and I think the First Lady or the President should represent all people.”
I’d believe that, except for the fact that he once dressed former First Lady Michelle Obama.
“Michelle, I dressed once when she was going to Buckingham Palace for dinner with the Queen, and I thought that was appropriate,” Ford said. “I live in London so that made sense, and it was an honor.”
Whatevz. I don’t care if he dresses Melania.
All of that brings me to this: An offensive quote has been floating around, and everyone has been attributing it to Tom Ford.
“I have no interest in dressing a glorified escort who steals speeches and has bad taste in men.”
It’s a fake quote. There’s no evidence of him saying it, but liberals are loving it anyway.
There’s more where that came from.
Even though it’s a fake quote, it’s odd that liberals are so into it. I thought they were the party of “women supporting women” and blah blah blah. What gives?
So much for feminism.
