Ocasio-Cortez’s Met Gala Fashion Statement Is Reminder to Stand Against Socialism

By Virginia Allen and Lauren Evans for Daily Signal

A “who’s who” of entertainment and society gathered in New York City on Monday night for the annual Met Gala.

From entertainers and artists such as Rihanna and Justin Bieber to Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri and Olympic gymnast Simone Biles, the red carpet oozed with notable celebrities.

Among the elite crowd was Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. The New York congresswoman wore a white dress bearing bold red text on the back reading, “Tax the Rich.” The designer dress triggered instant response across the political spectrum, with some praising the statement and others calling it hypocritical.

On today’s episode of “Problematic Women,” we break down why Ocasio-Cortez’s fashion choice is concerning, and why taxing the rich won’t actually help the poor. We also discuss some of the other notable outfits worn at the Met Gala, a fundraiser benefiting the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City, tickets for which cost $35,000.

Also on today’s show, we explain the significance of California’s gubernatorial recall election. Plus, we break down what you need to know about Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s testimony before Congress about the Afghanistan withdrawal. And as always, we’ll be crowning our “Problematic Woman of the Week.”
