“‘I wish peo­ple would fo­cus on what I do, not what I wear,’ Me­la­nia Trump told a gag­gle of re­porters on Satur­day, who had gath­ered in Giza, Egypt, to chron­i­cle her blitz through Africa. What she’d worn the day be­fore, and what she was re­fer­ring to, was a pith hel­met. Can’t a woman vogue around the pyra­mids in a linen suit with­out be­ing per­son­ally vic­tim­ized by the sex­ist me­dia? Never mind that these were all choices—the pith hel­met doesn’t strap it­self on—that could have been avoided by wear­ing some­thing nor­mal like, eh, I don’t know, a khaki dress or a coat that didn’t say ‘Talk About Me, Please for the Love of God,Talk About Me’ on it.”
