Ann Romney wears a $1000 shirt while millions are struggling to feed themselves!! Is it insensitive??
Like the shirt that Ann Romney was wearing on Tuesday? Itâ€™ll cost you a pretty penny.
The bird print top, made by Reed Krakoff costs $990, a saleswoman at the designerâ€™s store in Manhattan told Styleite. The piece is part of the Krakoffâ€™s spring 2012 ready-to-wear collection. A publicist for the line told ABC Newsthat they â€śhad nothing to do withâ€ť Romney wearing the item. â€śShe must have bought it from Saks or Bergdorfâ€™s, we definitely didnâ€™t send it to her,â€ť she said.
Romney wore the shirt (but not the matching pants made to go with it) during an appearance on â€śCBS This Morningâ€ť with her husband, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
Who cares? Not Bill Burton, former deputy press secretary under Obama, who defended Romney on â€śThe Bill Press Showâ€ť on Tuesday.
â€śIâ€™m of the view that Ann Romney should be off-limits,â€ť Burton said. â€śâ€¦I remember in 2007 and 2008 when people would go after Mrs. Obama. I was enraged about it. Because you never know if they even signed up for this willingly. They may just be supportive and along for the ride.â€ť
The Romney campaign didnâ€™t immediately respond to a request for comment.
This is such a travesty!!!! Ann Romney is such an elitist. With millions struggling & unable to buy food for their family, she walks around in $1000 shirts. Is this the kind of 1st lady we want?? She should show some compassion and wear cheaper clothes & not flash all her money!......
...... Isn't this what they said when Mrs. Obama wore expensive clothes?? I wonder if they feel the same away about Ann. Come on GOP talk trash about Ann Romney the same way you talked trash about Michelle Obama during the 2008 campaign for all her expensive clothes...... Unless you're hypocrites! lol
Why is it okay to bash Michelle Obama about wearing designer clothes, but then the Right feels it's a non issue when Ann Romney wears designer clothes?
