Media hypocrisy on Moochelle's $6,800 jacket

Rate this post

On July 26, 2012, Moochelle wore a $6,800 all-white embroidered J. Mendel jacket to the Olympics Opening Ceremony reception at Buckingham Palace.

The New York Daily News gushed and cooed about Moochie’s jacket ($6,800) and silk skirt (price unknown):
“[Michelle Obama] put dozens of stuffy royals and heads of state to fashion shame, making the queen look dowdy in her bulging aquamarine dress and tired-looking crown — and even showing up Kate Middletonin her belted, fitted satin coat-dress.
Make no mistake, FLOTUS followers quickly pointed out, the radiant, silk-and-viscose tailored jacket — with the capped sleeves highlighting her famously toned arms and a matching ivory-silk pleated skirt — were made in the U.S.A.”
2½ months ago, on May 3, 2012, Ann Romney wore a $990 Reed Krakoff off-the-rack silk T-shirt with a large bird print during a CBS “This Morning” interview with her husband, Mitt.

The Washington Post‘s Suzi Parker scolded:
“Does Ann Romney wear her $990 designer shirt while driving one of her two Cadillacs?
The very wealthy Mitt and Ann Romney have often been painted as out of touch with average Americans. Ann’s pricey shirt will not help her husband change those perceptions, no matter how many Laundromat photo ops are on the campaign’s daily itinerary. […]
Ann Romney’s wardrobe choice could haunt the campaign indefinitely. If it were a solid color, the designer tee might have been forgotten after awhile. But the yellow bird print is unique enough to become emblematic of wealth that most Americans could only wish to have. […]
Some Americans might be thinking that the $1,000 spent on one shirt could help them out with a house payment or buy necessities at Walmart. Others are counting exactly how many T-shirts that amount would buy at Target, where first lady Michelle Obama said she often shops.”
But then neither Washington Post nor the NY Daily News nor any other liberal media was bothered by Moochelle’s $2,000 sundress:

or her $1,000 totebag:

or her 2011 African vacation that cost taxpayers $424,000 (some say it cost $800,000), or her 2010 luxury vacation In Spain”…..

  1. And her “famously toned arms” come with our expense of flying her personal trainer to DC from Chicago three times a week (unless they’ve relocated him, which I doubt). I’ll bet her wardrobe adds up to ten stables of Ann Romney’s dancing horses.

  2. Homeschool Mama

    Makes me wish that Ron Paul hadn’t been so easily dismissed as a viable candidate. He is a self made millionaire that was committed to only taking a middle class salary for the office of President. Where are the George Washingtons that humbly agree to SERVE at the behest of their country? It used to be considered vulgar to seek the presidential office. Now, it seems that career politicians are “in it for what they can get.”
    For what it is worth, the Queen looks wonderfully dignified, especially for her age. And, I cannot fathom Michelle ever showing up Kate Middleton 😮

  3. and what about the 500.00 sneakers she wore “working” in the photo op White House garden?
    The bs surrounding this campaign and the Obamas is truly awesome.

  4. Thank you Laura B. and Dr. Eowyn for this honest post exposing the hypocritical bias of the major media. I am so glad that you are taking their biased choices to task!

  5. She could learn a lesson or two from Kate Middleton. Didn’t she just wear a 57 dollar dress recently? She looked fabulous!

  6. SRM in full-on Obama campaign mode. Pathetic…

  7. Michelle is truly an unattractive Amazon of a woman, and she cannot help this. It is the way she was made. That said, if she had a kind and loving heart, most of her unattractiveness would be overlooked. Pretty is as pretty does, according my dear granny.

  8. Clothes are a language in themselves. People like to flaunt themselves and dress extravagantly with no regard for the poor. In the Bible, it was the Scribes who liked to parade themselves, but they were insecure if even one person was not impressed with their show. Jesus didn’t buy into it and threatened their identity earning their hostility. He was not impressed by wealth or fancy clothes. At the time the Scribes were oblivious to the poor, Jesus pointed out a poor widow, a symbol of poverty and helplessness as an example to us all. It is a lesson we can all learn from.

  9. It is sad to see the media wag the dog. They want Obama to win and they will jump through any hoop to get it done.

  10. Lets put aside the fact that a (hideous) $1000 “tshirt” for t.v. is not comparable to a formal jacket, fit for “palace” attire… Does everyone here believe everything they see on the internet? I mean really.. We don’t know if either of these ladies purchased these items.. Seriously, think for yourselves people!

    • Even if I accept the premise of your argument, you still lose. Why? Because Ann Romney’s $900 t-shirt is still cheaper than Mooch’s $2,000 sundress and $1,000 totebag — neither of which was for the Buckingham Palace.
      Seriously, you really need to start thinking for yourself, soonerPryd person!

  11. Parasites!

  12. Where’s the photo of the diamond encrusted bag of chips? Don’t they come with “all that”? Why doesn’t she pay a fleeting visit to Haiti? She could stay in one of the luxury hotels that Bill Clinton’s rescue money for the Haitians was spent on building. Being out of touch is a fulltime job and takes a lot of hutzpah which the First Lady seems to have aquired during her tenure of the WH.
    We have thrown our pearls before the swine methinks.

  13. Thanks for a good laugh, terry…
