Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour has spoken out about the magazine's controversial February cover, which features Vice President-elect Kamala Harris in a photo that drew backlash from critics on social media. The iconic fashion magazine and Wintour herself came under fire when the cover was leaked online late Saturday. Many were quick to call out the lighting and casual styling of the cover photo that shows the former California senator in a black suit jacket, skinny pants and Chuck Taylor sneakers. Many felt Harris, the first Black and South Asian woman to be elected vice president, appeared "washed out." One person

The photo is fine. It simply shows you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear, as the old saying goes.

Who looks at a magazine cover and determines how washed out the picture looks? No one, that's who, unless you are a sissy democrat always looking for something to complain about.

We never saw photos of her anywhere in a pale blue suit. We saw masses of photos of her in dark jackets, too tight stovepipe pants and Converse Chuck Ross sneakers. That was her “for the people” uniform. Those who bother to search will find a number of articles on just that. Amazon even has a T-shirt emblazoned with her name and the signature sneakers. Now she is suddenly wanting gravitas. Shades of Hillary and her potholder outfits…. her muumuus…. She’d be smart to shut up. Even her followers have to remember how she dressed during the “campaign”.

Those who read the article will find out that Kamala styled herself for both cover photos and that there was no agreement whatsoever as to which would be used. The complainers are undoubtedly the same hysterical women who hung out at the old Mrs. O site and went ballistic whenever anyone even said something Mooch wore was “inappropriate”. Mooch’s and Kamala’s fans are a tight, tough, racial and very protective crowd.

Celebrating the 21st century woman! She became a concubine to a married man who was speaker of the California legislature in order to gain positions in government. She went down to go up. She has an average IQ at best as she demonstrated in her explanations of religious holidays this past year. She cannot conjure an original thought with out plagiarizing like her soon-to-be ex-boss Joe Biden. I predict that in 25 months, Joe will resign for health reasons, or the Squad will lead an effort to 25th Amendment his arse, and this half-arsed idiot will be elevated to POTUS. That will give her the potential to rule for 10 years. That's what the Leftists really, really want.

Isn't Anna Wintour racist for putting the urban ghetto version on the front of her magazine? Also, does't it trivialize a female official to use her college sorority colors? What is with the manly footwear? We ladies would rather see Melania's designer stilettos.

If Anna Wintour and the people at Vogue are fussing over digitally altered images, it shows how ridiculous and fictional these types have become. Does anyone still read Vogue, by the way? Is there anything to read in it except for ad after ad after ad? They should call it "Vacuous".

She's probably mad because the sneakers picture doesn't airbrush out the double nose-nose-to-mouth crease she got from this summer's filler injections. Also putting THAT woman in front of rumpled sheets is painfully honest. Ms Harris was ambitious and conscience-free Her stepping stone to power was a-dul-ter-ee. She found an old Willy and she played up nice An unqualified promotion was her asking price. She polished his handle so carefully that now she’s in saddle as Slo-Joe’s VP! Pace, W.S. Gilbert.

The more contagious strain of the coronavirus — first identified in the U.K. in September 2020 — has been detected in at least 20 states in the U.S. so far, with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reporting 122 COVID-19 cases caused by the variant. The CDC predicts the new coronavirus strain will grow rapidly in 2021, and become “the predominant variant in March.” So should you double up on face masks for added protection against the more contagious strain of the virus? “The short answer is ... no,” Dr. Dean Winslow, infectious disease physician at Stanford Health Care

Democratic Rep.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is explicitly pointing his finger at President Donald Trump for helping to spur the attack on the Capitol by the outgoing president’s supporters. The Kentucky Republican said Tuesday on the Senate floor, “The mob was fed lies. They were provoked by the president and other powerful people.” McConnell spoke six days after the Democratic-led House impeached Trump on charges of inciting the Jan. 6 attack. A Senate trial on whether to convict Trump and perhaps bar him from ever again holding federal office is expected to begin in coming days. After years of supporting Trump

Chief Justice John Roberts is eager to avoid presiding over Donald Trump's second impeachment trial–after he became a lightning rod during the first one. Just as the Senate is seeking to ascertain how it might proceed with an impeachment trial without blowing up the start of Joe Biden's term, the Supreme Court could face its own business being rearranged. The Constitution states that 'When the President of the United States is tried the Chief Justice shall preside.' But with the Senate having been in recess since the House voted to impeach, the trial will occur when Trump is no longer in office
