With President Joe Biden’s inauguration came a whirlwind of some of the most stunning sycophancy seen in four years, with “journalists” hopping over themselves to lavish both him and first lady Jill Biden with massive unearned praise.

Of all the praise doled out, perhaps most jarring was the media’s insistence that Jill has suddenly brought so-called “fashion” back to the White House. What makes this position untenable is the fact that her predecessor was an actual fashion model.

Yet rarely these past four years did any outlets in the left-wing mainstream press seek to celebrate then-first lady Melania Trump’s bonafide fashion sense.

The same is true of the world’s fashion magazines. It’s a point her husband, former President Donald Trump, had made a note of just a couple of weeks ago:

For years Melania’s sense of style and fashion were all but ignored, yet within minutes of Jill stepping into the White House, the entire media predictably went gaga over her.

But one outlet, Refinery29, took it too far for conservative Mollie Hemingway, by daring to proclaim that Jill “is bringing American fashion back into the White House.”

Say what?

Look:

She wasn’t the only one left aghast.

Look:

The anger was palpable, in part because — objectively speaking — Jill ain’t got nothing on Melania’s fashion sense. The photos prove it.

Look:

Not that this is meant to be a diss of Jill. She’s not a former professional model, after all.

While no doubt the worst offender, Refinery29 wasn’t the only one. Below are more noteworthy headlines that reek of sycophancy:

Town & Country magazine: “Kamala Harris and Jill Biden’s Inauguration Fashion is the Embodiment of American Hope”
Glamour magazine: “A New Dawn For White House Fashion Is Upon Us”
Quartz: “Biden’s and Harris’s inauguration clothes sent a powerful message”
Today: “Jill Biden’s evening inauguration look makes a powerful statement of unity”
NBC News: “‘Masterful, tasteful, inclusive’: See the Inauguration styles of First Lady Jill Biden, VP Kamala Harris, former First Lady Michelle Obama”

Meanwhile, CNN published a 500-word tribute to Jill’s fashion.

“First lady Jill Biden did not disappoint, quietly signaling she knows exactly how to harness the soft-power potential of fashion in the three looks she wore to mark the occasion. Nodding to emerging design talent, sustainable fashion, and multiculturalism, her choices hit all the right notes and contributed to a growing sense among onlookers that fashion diplomacy has returned to the American political stage,” the outlet’s fashion experts wrote with alacrity.

Conversely, a small snippet published by CNN in 2017 about Melania’s Inauguration Day festival measured only 89 words — some of which weren’t even about her — and lacked any enthusiastic adjectives.

“Melania Trump stepped out in a powder blue Ralph Lauren outfit that harkened back to Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis’ iconic style. She also wore matching shoes and gloves. Her look drew comparisons to the outfit Jackie Kennedy wore to her husband’s inauguration in 1961,” the piece read.

“Ralph Lauren also did many of former first lady Hillary Clinton’s suits. The brand declined to comment on how the Ralph Lauren Collection came together, whether they offered the powder blue skirt ensemble or if Trump chose it herself.”

See the difference?
