CAN WE ALL AGREE that Louise Gorsuch, wife of President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch, is a nice-looking woman? And can we agree that as the wife of a judge on the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals she must have occasion to attend official functions?
Then why, for heaven’s sake, did she wear a skirt and blouse to the official announcement of her husband’s nomination, an occasion filled with press photographers and TV cameras?
And not only a skirt and blouse but a white button-down shirt that made her look like an out-of-uniform high school cheerleader (hmm, maybe that’s not a bad goal for a 48-year-old woman).
“Doesn’t the wife of a judge in one of the most important courts in the country have something better in her closet?! ‘Tailored appropriate,’ that’s all we want!” That was from a semi-retired law professor walking his dog in the woods this morning.
Maybe she’ll do better if/when there’s an official swearing-in.
The upside of this? She still fits into that blouse and skirt, which obviously date from her high school years (okay, that’s probably not true). And in an administration with lotsa ex-wives, the Gorsuches have been together since Neil Gorsuch’s days at Oxford.
Hey, maybe that’s the difference: Louise Gorsuch is not a trophy wife, is the mother of the judge’s children and dresses like a normal American (even though she’s British-born).
Our advice: Just wear a tailored jacket over the blouse next time. And LittleBird Janet adds: If your husband is confirmed, you may want to step up your game for occasions when you’ll be bumping up against all those billionaire trophy wives.
