Would it have been more "authentic" for you if she was wearing rags? Or an ill-fitting hand-me-down dress? Or perhaps chains?

Your implication that Gorman's ethos is undercut by her wearing of an expensive headband to an inauguration viewed by hundreds of millions of people is ridiculous, and is just the kind of not-so-subtle false equivalence that somehow manages to willfully blind a sizeable subsection of the right to the scale of things that actually matter.

If peddling outright lies doesn't work, peddling misleading half-truths will work in a pinch. Shameful.
