The Trump ladies have come under fire recently for their terrible fashion choices. On Wednesday, when President Trump, 73, took a photo to commemorate the September 11th terrorist attacks. Trump and his wife, Melania, 49, were pictured with their backs to the camera as they faced out at Flight 93 National Memorial in Pennsylvania. The image was snapped last year when the first couple visited the memorial in honor of those who died during the struggle against terrorism.
However, critics have come forward to levy intense criticism toward Melania for what she was wearing in the image. While Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, recently came under fire for wearing a lily-pad inspired outfit during a South American visit, Melania wore something that horrified many viewers. People pointed out that the stitching on the back of Melania’s jacket looked like a plane flying into one of the Twin Towers.
Because the fashion faux pas was captioned with the message, “We will never forget 9.11.01” there was no doubt in the minds of the people who were viewing the image that the stitching was done on purpose.
The custom navy blue coat from Herve Pierre featured stitching that looked like the doomed skyscraper getting smashed by a plane. This outraged many viewers who saw the fashion move as a slap in the face to the victims who died in the destruction eighteen years ago.
If you take a close look at the stitching, it clearly resembled the terror attack back in September 2001. The large long skyscraper structure has an object sticking out of it that clearly resembles a plane.
Melania was photographed at the memorial from all sorts of angles during the presidential visit to the memorial last year. However, it was when Trump decided to share this controversial picture to commemorate those who died in the terrorist attack eighteen years ago that people found it utterly offensive.
Dozens of people lashed out at the president when they realized that Melania was wearing a satirical representation of the Twin Tower catastrophe. Since the backlash, the White House spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham slammed the backlash as “ridiculous,” denying that Melania was wearing the stitching on purpose.
This is not the first time Melania has been accused of wearing fashion that was deemed insensitive.
One of the first people to draw attention to the bizarre stitching pattern on the jacket was former Bachelor contestant Ashley Spivey. She wrote the following:
“I’m sure I’m not the first one to spot this but who in the world thought it was a good idea for Melania to wear this coat in the 9/11 photo,” she tweeted. “It legit looks like an object is flying into a tower or the Washington Monument.”
Abe Caldwell asked the obvious, “Is…is that a plane crashing into one of the twin towers in the back of Melania’s coat?!?”
Another person wrote, “Melania wears a coat in [their] 911 post that literally looks like a plane flew into a tower. Did they fire all the stylists too or is Melania just the biggest troll ever??'”
What do you think about the outfit?
