Hillary Clinton Talks about Income Inequality while Wearing $12,000 Armani Jacket

Wait, a woman of the people is wearing a $12,000 jacket [1]? That sounds…not so typical for what Hillary once called an “everyday American” to wear:

According to the New York Post [2]Clinton sported the $12,495 Giorgio Armani jacket when delivering remarks in New York City in April after defeating competitor Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) in her home-state primary.

The price of the jacket constitutes roughly 40 percent of what the average American worker makes in a year. According to the most recent data [3] provided by the U.S. Census Bureau, the median income for U.S. workers in 2014 was $30,815.
