Boots and Politics

The following is taken from a profile of Lauren Duca, editor of Teen Vogue, who attracted wide attention in December 2016 for publishing an article that accused Donald Trump of ‘gaslighting’ America.

Duca went on the Fox News show Tucker Carlson Tonight, where she neatly eviscerated her host when he attempted to dismiss her commentaries on the grounds that it had appeared in a teen magazine. He said she should stick to writing about thigh-high boots.

“A woman can love Ariana Grande and her thigh-high boots and still discuss politics,” Duca replied.
