“Ridiculous. Pinning signs that read ‘Let them eat cake’ all over herself would have had the same effect.”
“She wears $51,000 as her husband strip needed services from the poor and pays ZERO in taxes.”
“The only thing these people are in touch with is GREED! Melania $51,500 Coat Is the Actual Definition of Out of Touch.”
“Kleptocracy: the jacket Melania Trump wears costs $51,500, and if you want to buy one just like it, you have to make a $25,750 deposit.”
#TrumpTrain yeah you couldn’t use $51,500.”
Breitbart used to be so outraged by Michelle Obama clothing costs. Weird that they're silent when Melania Trump wears a $51,000(!) coat. pic.twitter.com/KHTqReJA6R
