Jill Biden’s coat shows just how far we’ve come from Melania Trump
The new First Lady, Dr Jill Biden, is on her first official visit overseas and it happens to be at the G7 summit in Cornwall.
Pictures of Dr. Biden, the President, and the newlywed Johnsons have been shared to show that the so-called ‘special relationship’ is intact.

One thing that really grabbed people’s attention was what the good doctor wore – and we don’t mean in a sexist ‘women in the public eye are just clothes horses’ kind of a way.
Check out the coat.
It was wonderful to spend some time with Carrie Johnson and her son, Wilfred, today. The special relationship continues. pic.twitter.com/V4DmbJOwXI

Here’s her explanation for the choice.

It’s a far cry from the coat worn by the former First Lady, Melania Trump on an official visit to a camp for immigrant children.

The contrast resonated with a lot of people.

I never understood how people could ever think of Melania as "classy" after wearing THAT coat. The epitome of trashy elitism. Thank you, Jill Biden. You are appreciated. pic.twitter.com/UgDj7MCas4
