The 31-year-old rep, who is the darling of the far left, could have found a more receptive audience to her sartorial statement at a workers rally. The Met Gala is an exclusive event, which is a parade of millionaire pop stars, wealthy actors, trust fund society swans and members of the gliteratti.

That's typically coming from those rather wealthy individuals that can dodge being taxed or even stand to benefit from increased taxation. Which is anyway a sham, since the super-wealthy have arranged their wealth in a way that it is far-goingly tax exempt. Tax increases will strike at moderately wealthy first and that strikes then through to poorer individuals (secondary tax victims). Same applies to regulations. That some mega-biz got bigger during the lockdowns, while smaller businesses were made to fail or struggling is a shining example of this.
