CNN’s Obsession with Melania’s Attire

CNN’s Obsession with Melania’s Attire

First Lady Melania Trump wore a stunning (nothing new there) white ensemble.  That is a fact – but that was not enough for CNN’s White House reporter Kate Bennett.  Though it was clearly a bridge too far, she saw meaning in the selection of white.  Not just meaning, but sinister meaning.

Since the dress code protesting sexual harassment at last year’s Trump speech was white, Bennet surmised, speculated, conjectured and intimated – without a scintilla of justification – that Melania had selected white as a subtle protest against her husband’s alleged conduct.

In her literal color commentary during the State of the Union broadcast, Bennett said, “You know, she’s wearing a cream-colored suit there, which I find interesting. Remember last year the female Democratic Senators all wore white.” 

However, this year’s dress code for the liberal ladies of the legislature was … black.

Had the First Lady wanted to project protest, she would more likely have worn black.  White is the opposite of black.  If there was any meaning in the color selection – and I am not sure there was – I would think Melania was pushing back against all those women wearing widow weeds.

If Bennett wants to salvage a reputation as a journalist, she will need to avoid using the airwaves to engage in mindless, meaningless and made up gossip.
