Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren didn't wear white at 2019 State of the Union: 'Did she not get the memo?'

In a silent protest against President Trump’s administration, Democratic congresswomen wore white during Tuesday’s State of the Union address — excluding several high-profile lawmakers whose different-colored wardrobe choices caused confusion on social media.

Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts wore a bright teal jacket, Arizona’s Kyrsten Sinema dressed in hot pink, Minnesota’s Amy Klobuchar wore purple, and California’s Kamala Harris and New York’s Kirsten Gillibrand were sleek in black.

To Twitter, the bold colors were in opposition to the suffragist movement of the early 20th century that modern-day lawmakers honored Tuesday with their white clothing. Lois Frankel, a Florida congresswoman and chair of the House Democratic Women’s Working Group had suggested women dress in white on Twitter. And as The Hill reported, Rep. Dean Phillips of Minnesota even wore a white jacket. 


“Wearing suffragette white is a respectful message of solidarity with women across the country, and a declaration that we will not go back on our hard-earned rights,” Frankel told CNN.

Twitter asked why the senators — some of whom are Trump’s loudest critics — didn’t join the trend that even Tiffany Trump seemed to join. The president’s 25-year-old daughter wore a fitted white skirt suit in contrast to the black outfits worn by first lady Melania and sister Ivanka Trump.
