Fashion Wars: Melania Trump vs Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama

The First Couple - Donald J. and Melania Trump 
It is the end of the world for fashion designers in the US now that the slovenly and hideous Melania Trump is set to occupy the coveted position of First Lady in the White House.  Our rebuttal to a pretentious article published recently in the New York Times "style" section, is best demonstrated in photos....(author's words from article emphasized in italics)

Is Fashion’s Love Affair With Washington Over?

With all the money famous designers poured into Hillary Clinton's campaign, they are disappointed she lost
It was striking that on election night, for example, while Melania Trump also wore Ralph Lauren (a white jumpsuit), the outfit was, according to the brand, one she had bought off the rack, as opposed to one that she had worked with the designer to create.

Jumpsuit?  As opposed to "pantsuit"?  Well, anyway, at least Melania showed up....just, you know, saying.

new york times
Michelle Obama, the darling of the "high fashion"  designers
Mrs. Obama elevated the industry beyond the superficial to the substantive. She framed clothing as a collection of values: diversity, creativity, entrepreneurship. Mrs. Clinton seemed primed to continue that trend. The Trumps, however, may not.
Not to be one who likes to deliver devastating news, but Melania Trump wouldn't be caught in bed nursing the flu in some of the clothes Michelle Obama actually wore in public.

Melania Trump on the campaign trail with President elect, Donald J. Trump
Indeed, all the clothes she wore on the campaign trail seem to have been part of a shopping spree, as opposed to a strategic plan. There’s nothing wrong with that. Arguably it is part of what makes a woman who lives in a gilded penthouse seem more normal (she buys, just like everyone else!)But it reflects her distance from the industry.
And it is striking that while Ralph Lauren is an American brand, which may indicate a decision to support homegrown talent and promote local industry, Mrs. Trump has also worn Fendi (Italian), Roksanda Ilincic (British) and Emilia Wickstead (British) on the campaign trail. When she went to cast her vote, Mrs. Trump threw a gold-buttoned camel Balmain military coat (French) over her shoulders.
Love it when they fact-check themselves mid-judgy rant .  Let's take a look at some of Melania's fashion faux pas...but I digress, let us return to the whining elitist fashion designers pity party:
Now the industry has to wrestle with what happens next: how it defines itself if it is marginalized — reduced to mere decoration — in a Trump administration, and whether there will be repercussions for either its pledge of allegiance to the president-elect’s opponent or some of the more angry postelection [sic] statements designers have made on social media.
You can't even make this shi* up my friends.

Alas, according to Ms Friedman's article, one designer, Elie Tahari, already had a wardrobe in mind for Madame President Hillary Clinton back in August of 2015 -- methinks said designer punked Ms Vanessa way was this look created for Hillary Clinton, it was obviously designed for the beautiful and poised Melania Trump - future FLOTUS.

Shaun King's story about the Daily Beast Plagiarism is not adding up

For the past two days Shaun King has been battling accusations that he plagiarized an article that was posted on The Daily Beast.  The New York Daily News and King's editor have said it was an editing error, and everyone took their toys and went home...except, of course, me.  It doesn't sit right, at all.  So I did a little digging, and here is what I think proves King is, once again, lying.

Shaun King doesn't think Plagiarism counts on Facebook

Shaun King was busted by The Daily Beast today for plaigerism.  Of course he vehemently denied the allegation and for some odd reason, his editor at the NYDN is backing him up.  This surprises no one here, King's entire life is based on fabrications.  He is basically a smart guy with zero talent, creativity, or common sense. (See update on editor at the end of this article)

Why the Johnson Family Will Never Refile Their Wrongful Death Lawsuit
On March 1, 2016 Jackie and Kenneth Johnson voluntarily dismissed their $100 million dollar wrongful death lawsuit related to the death of their son Kendrick. Their Attorney Chevene King and family spokesman Marcus Coleman have publicly stated that the lawsuit will be refiled sometime in the next six months. For reasons I will lay out below, the wrongful death lawsuit will never be refiled.

New Mayor of Flint wants Reparations

Mayor Karen Weaver of Flint, Michigan. (AP/Cliff Rogers)
Karen Weaver was elected Mayor of Flint, Michigan, November 2015, after promising to solve the water crisis.  In a recent interview Weaver was asked about solutions for Flint:

Are there reparations due for all of that as well?

Well yeah, that’s the whole plan that we’re putting in place. We’re asking for money for those kinds of things. That’s exactly what we’re doing for all of those kinds of services and support for these children and families. That $28 million that the governor gave is not enough. It’s nowhere near enough.

Michael Moore Misstates a few facts - again

Michael Moore has no problem misstating facts and causing undue stress to the people of his hometown.  He's been doing it for weeks and now he is doubling down on the rhetoric.

DeRay McKesson on The Daily Show: Misstating facts again

Deray McKesson on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah
Deray Mckesson was a guest on The Daily Show last night with Trevor Noah.  Noah first points out that McKesson is wearing an Apple watch, which Noah opines is odd for someone who is oppressed.  I agree.  Then Noah addresses the latest project from Campaign Zero, of which Mckesson is a founder.  McKesson says his organization requested police policies from 100 large US cities in order to assess their policies on excessive force.  Noah inquires about a screenshot from a 2004 Houston Police Department document he had taken from Campaign Zero's site - the document contained many redactions where use of force policies should have been.

Judge Strikes all white jury mid-trial

Shaun King
Judge Olu Stevens
A Judge in Kentucky, Olu Stevens, may be removed from the bench after  twice striking down all white jurors during voir dire; in effect, racially discriminating against each and every person on those juries.  Striking a petit trial juror based on race has been addressed by the United States Supreme Court in several cases and the final opinion is consistently the same:

George Zimmerman in the headlines again - A "rant" about Obama's tears

How Zimmerman must feel about Obama
Obama's tears over gun control, while the parents of the children killed at Sandy Hook stood behind him, practically trended on Twitter yesterday.  Two schools of thought, people either thought his tears fake or sincere.  Thousands commented and many media outlets and bloggers opined, one reporter even sought out the opinion of George Zimmerman, who laughs at the prospect that he has apparently become the go-to person when it comes to Obama's statements on gun control.  Maybe it is because Zimmerman epitomizes, thanks in large part to Obama, the lengths to which the press and politicians (with the help of willful social media idiots), will go to strip us of our right to self defense.

Two teens shot to death - No hashtag

Sakinah Reed and Donta Parker
They were not shot by cops, or at a school, so it is doubtful they will rise to the honor of a hashtag.  "Kinah" was a basketball star with a plaque to prove it; she was also in a gang, with a bullet to prove it.  Something has to give.  The black lives matter movement cannot continue to ignore that this violence goes on every single day in America while they are protesting for one or two children.  Last year 54 children were shot in Chicago alone, this is more than the deadliest school shooting in America's history.

Rare interview with Shaun King's friend, Jason Woody

Shaun King
Jason Woody speaks to James from the Internet about Shaun King
Prior to yesterday, I had (miraculously), not seen this interview with Jason Woody, a friend of Shaun King, that was posted on August 20, the day King was put on blast as being white.  To my knowledge, and searching through archives, it appears King never tweeted this interview out....and anytime King doesn't use a friend to his advantage, there's always a reason.  In this case it is likely because the guy didn't repeat the narrative correctly and because his "friend" is a member of the occupy movement.  Said friend also wears anonymous masks at rallies.  I'm heavily leaning toward a possible connection to the #OpFerguson anons on Twitter, just a hunch though, will research further.

Shaun King's Sloppy "reporting" strikes again - Racist Texts by SFPD

Shaun King

Another histrionic article from Shaun King at the New York Daily Snooze today.  As is the case with almost everything he writes, he either hasn't researched or he is deliberately throwing false flags to incite his low information twitter following. Today was no exception.

Shaun King: Teflon Con

Shaun King (Instagram)
In his latest narcissistic rant Shaun King, once again, uses his position as a Senior Social Justice writer for New York Daily news to defend himself against anything negative said about him on Twitter or (lol) Fox News.  After the following background on the Black Lives Matter/Shaun King twitter drama you will find our rebuttal to King's latest NYDN manifesto..

Ginger Otis: NY Daily News paints an heroic portrait of brother to terrorist Syed Rizwan Farook

New York Daily News
Ginger Adams Otis, New York Daily News
Ginger Adams Otis wrote a touchy-feely story about the brother of the alleged terrorist, Syed Rizwan Farook, yesterday and I can't find it anywhere on her twitter timeline.  I stumbled across it on a tweet by Shaun King on the #sanbernardino twitter feed.
