For decades, the September issue of Vogue has been a full-blown event in the fashion world, and being chosen as its cover model is regarded as one of the industry’s highest honors.
Jennifer Lawrence was granted that honor several times over this week, when the magazine debuted four covers for September issue covers, each featuring a different photo of the 26-year-old Oscar winner.
Hilariously, a finance and economics editor at Breitbart – the preferred media outlet for those who read the news through the eyeholes in their hoods – believes J-Law and Vogue have teamed up
“We’re going to have to create a full #MAGA shadow cultural industry because the Opposition Media can’t even do fashion without attacking us,” John Carney tweeted in response to the image of Lawrence in front of the Statue of Liberty.
In a since deleted follow-up tweet, Carney argued that the photo is “clearly an allusion to our current immigration debate, taking the #poemlaw side.”
Yes, John Carney is the most precious of all snowflakes, and he’s thoroughly triggered by the mere sight of the Statue of Liberty.
Carney’s hashtag refers to a recent statement made by Trump surrogate and Guy With Voldemort Living In His Head From the First Harry Potter, Stephen Miller.
Confronted with the fact that the poem inscribed on the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty heralds America as a refuge for immigrants, Miller argued that the poem should be dismissed as it “was added later.”
Carney’s conniption over an actress standing in front of one of this nation’s most famous monuments is hilarious for a number of reasons.
For one, Jennifer Lawrence’s hatred of Donald Trump is no secret.
If she wants to express her distaste for the president, she doesn’t have to resort to subtle visual cues on the cover of the fashion industry’s favorite periodical.
That would be the height of preaching to the choir.
On top of all that, Carney was thoroughly corn-cobbed by the revelation that the photo was shot weeks before Miller said his dumb thing:
Yes, that’s Vogue‘s director of communications, Zara Rahim, tearing down Carney’s argument with six words.
The condescending “buddy” at the end is quite cherry on top.
So Carney doesn’t have a leg to stand on here, but a Breitbart editor arguing against media duplicity was never not hilarious.
John, you’re from the outlet that gave the world President Bannon.
Maybe don’t be so harsh to accuse others of spreading propaganda … buddy.
