As a white woman and the wife of President Donald Trump, first lady Melania Trump never had to deal with controversial magazine covers — in large part because the liberal magazine industry ignored her.

But Kamala Harris, who will be the next vice president of the United States in a little more than a week, as scary as that concept may be, is another story, though Vogue is getting a little taste of the complexities of life in post-Obama America. Who knew groveling could be so complicated.


The Vogue cover features Harris in a black blazer, white top, tapered black pants and Converse sneakers — adoring media allies celebrate the shoes as part of her signature style. She stands against a green backdrop with pink fabric, which is seen as a nod to her sorority, Alpha Kappa Alpha.

In a second Vogue cover, Harris is pictured wearing a powder-blue Michael Kors suit.

But it was the first cover that’s being widely criticized on social media, for a number of reasons, to include failing to accentuate the color of her skin.

The criticism includes calls for Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour, 71, to step down — welcome to the world conservatives have lived in for the better part of the last two decades.

But then, this is the cabal that was accustomed to eight years of fashion magazines bending over backwards to present Michelle Obama in a favorable light.

Adding to the fuss, journalist Yashar Ali, cited a source “familiar with the publication plans” to say the first photo of Harris isn’t the one agreed on by her team and Vogue’s team.

Ali said the photo of Harris wearing the powder-blue suit was mutually picked by both teams.

“So folks feel blindsided this evening,” he added.

Her early rise in politics has been linked to an extramarital affair she had as a young, ambitious deputy district attorney with then-60-year-old Willie Brown, the mayor of San Francisco, and Harris accomplished little as a senator, other than a spectacularly failed attempt to run for president as the female Barack Obama.

There are concerns that she was selected for little more than the color of her skin and her gender. Yet, one heart beat away from the Oval Office — a 78-year-old heart at that — the left’s biggest concern is her appearance, which sums things up fairly well in the United States of America in the year 2021.

Here’s a broad sampling of the responses from Twitter, which proves the more the left is in control, the more complicated society becomes:
