The Philadelphia Inquirer’s fashion critic, Elizabeth Wellington took umbrage when Melania Trump wore a white dress during her Republican National Convention speech.  The black fashion critic said that Mrs. Trump looked lovely, but also “scary.” Here’s what she wrote about her ensemble:

Melania Trump looked absolutely stunning… And that dress. The off-white Roksanda cotton and satin long-sleeved sheath was just lovely…So while Trump appeared flawless on the Cleveland stage Monday night, whether she intended it or not, her all-white ensemble displayed the kind of foreignness that is accepted by her husband’s political party. To many, that outfit could be another reminder that in the G.O.P. white is always right…

On Monday night, Melania Trump was a not-so-subliminal billboard for what’s looking like the Trumpian view of an ideal America. And if that’s the fashion statement she intended to make, it’s a very scary one.

Got that?  So Melania Trump wearing white is “scary” because it indicates a certain level of racist attitudes toward Americans.  However, when Democrats wear white, the color embodies the purity and fortitude that can only be found in liberals.  When Wellington saw Alexandria Occasio-Cortez’s white frock, she thought it was “everything.”  (Pssst: not everything bad, everything good.)

What a great illustration of how writers at super liberal newspapers don’t even have enough self-reflection to see their own double standards…  and their editorial boards certainly won’t hold them accountable to actual reality either.  For readers, this means that we simply can not trust their “hot takes,” because their cultural lens is glaring: Democrats are good, Republicans are evil.

It would save us all time if they simply led each story with that admission.
