A special kind of shade: Nancy Pelosi, Democrats display disapproval of SOTU

Jobs and electoral victories were a couple examples of a theme running through Trump's State of the Union address: outreach to women.

Sherman saw Trump dealing with issues that appeal to most Americans at the beginning and end of his remarks, but the middle of the speech was all about his push for $5.7 billion for a border wall, which Democrats oppose, as a February 15 deadline to prevent another government shutdown looms.

Hours earlier, Frankel tweeted: "At State of the Union tonight, @realDonaldTrump will look out at the House Chamber and see a sea of #Suffragette white sending the message loud&clear that @HouseDemWomen are fighting for the economic security of women & families".

There are 127 women in the House and Senate this year, up from 104 in the last Congress.

There were white pantsuits, of course. Even a puffy zip snow vest.

The simplicity of white offered a reminder that fashion is often political.

As House Democrats sat stoically, with many members dressed in white, Trump seemed to be enjoying himself. But the vast majority of them, about 90, are Democrats.

This is not the first time female members of Congress have worn white for the high profile speech. Abrams often said her student loans and other debts amassed caring for family members left her more empathetic than most politicians to what the majority of USA households experience in day-to-day life.

Our Women in White, our modern feminists, are not as intersectional as they claim.

As soon as the speech was done, the women headed for the doors, their place in history, in white, complete.
