This event is about promoting opportunities for military spouses, but every single participant is a woman. With one lone exception, every participant is white.
People of color make up about 45 percent of the American military today. Where were their spouses? Where were the husbands of those serving in the military, husbands of women and husbands of men?
Official events for military spouses are considered "command performance" when they're at the White House. Short of illness or a death in the family, all military spouses will show up. This event was white women only because they were the only ones invited by the Trump White House.
Trump himself seems forever trapped in 1969. His attitudes toward women, LGBTs, and people of color are like something from 1969. His ideas about industry, technology, science, and the arts are trapped in 1969. Even his behavior as President is trapped in 1969, as he tries repeatedly to out-Nixon Nixon.
There are so many ways the Trump Administration is reprehensible, and this overt racism and sexism is yet another example.
