FLOTUS POTUS – HOCUS POCUS

POTUS FLOTUS OPE NOPE:

HOCUS POCUS KWANZAA BAA!

Guess what folks! We are now having to deal with the latest inane acronym: FLOTUS (First Lady of the United States). POTUS was bad enough, although I confess to having used that one a lot for convenience. Then came the made-up Office of the President Elect (OPE), this should actually reflect that there is not such office (NOPE). This was followed shortly thereafter by the made-up holiday (KWANZAA).

FLOTUS, hardly a flattering term, came to my attention by way of a posting by The Politico’s Nia-Malika Henderson today reporting the displeasure being expressed by certain fashion designers of color that FLOTUS was not wearing their precious designs.The Black Artist’s Association (BAA) has notified FLOTUS of their pique in a letter to the FLOTUS office. BAA Cofounder Amnau Eele told Women’s Wear Daily (WWD):

It’s fine and good if you want to be all ‘Kumbaya’ and ‘We Are the World’ by representing all different countries. But if you are going to have Isabel Toledo do the inauguration dress, and Jason Wu do the evening gown, why not have Kevan Hall, B Michael, Stephen Burrows or any of the other black designers”
