PHOTOS: HILLARY CLINTON FASHION ICON BUT NOT MELANIA TRUMP – SAYS NYT! FASHION INDUSTRY SO DEPRESSED, AFRAID MELANIA AND IVANKA WON’T USE THEM AND MAKE THEM USELESS…PERFECT! SEE HOW THEY DRESSED UP HILLARY?
Fashion industry so depressed Hillary Clinton lost the election after the industry’s full endorsement with their numerous fund-raising glitz. They are now afraid the Trump women will make fashion industry irrelevant.
