Contradicting Trump’s ‘sold-out’ claims, one D.C. store is having a sale of leftover inauguration dresses


Before the inauguration, Donald Trump boasted that D.C. dress shops were sold out of dresses because there was such a high demand. That claim was quickly proven untrue.

So untrue that Signature Dresses of Georgetown is now holding a sale of all its leftover dresses. Owner Gilda Mizrahi told the Washington Post that she ordered 200 extra dresses in anticipation of the event and is now selling them for 30 percent off because “more than half are still here.” So if you’re looking for a gown for 2020’s inauguration, get yourself a deal!

Meanwhile, in anticipation of the inauguration, there was a shortage of pink yarn, since so many people were knitting pussyhats to wear to the Women’s March on Washington. Which was three times the size of Trump’s inauguration.
