WashPost Fashionista Hits Trump for 'Spitting Distance' Human Backdrop
March 19th, 2020 5:19 PM
Washington Post scribe Robin Givhan is supposed to do fashion writing, but it's always smarter to see her as a political columnist who uses fashion as an inspiration. This latest column has almost zero to do with fashion. The headline is:"Why won’t Trump practice social distancing at his daily briefings?!" Question mark, exclamation point....another liberal opinion.

June 11th, 2019 4:42 PM
The Washington Post on Tuesday offered a gushing, 3000 profile on CBS This Morning’s Gayle King, fawning over the co-host as the “soothing voice of reason.” At no point in the story did Post writer Robin Givhan identify King as a Democratic donor.

May 2nd, 2019 11:16 AM
“Pete Buttigieg is having his Vogue moment,” began a Style section article by Washington Post fashion writer Robin Givhan.

January 4th, 2019 4:56 PM
Washington Post fashion critic Robin Givhan was brought in after the House swearing-in to write about fashion -- well, not really. As usual, she used fashion as a subtext for her liberal politics.

'Fashion Critic' or Fan Girl? Givhan Won't Critique Michelle Obama
December 22nd, 2018 8:44 AM
In her column this week, Washington Post Givhan was very reluctant to criticize the, shall-we-say, controversial fashion choices that Michelle Obama made for her book-tour appearance with Sarah Jessica Parker earlier this week...especially the $3,900 thigh-high boots. If a former Republican First Lady had worn them, Givhan would have scolded her for conspicuous consumption.

February 15th, 2014 7:48 AM
Michael W. Chapman of our sister site CNSNews.com reports on cost estimates for the hand-sewn gown Michelle Obama wore at Tuesday’s state dinner for the prime minister of France. Think five figures.
