Second lady Karen Pence is getting dragged for wearing a “mall-bought” dress that was “too short and tight” while meeting the King and Queen of Jordan this week.

To receive King Abdullah II bin Al-Hussein and Queen Rania on Monday, Karen, the wife of VP Mike Pence, wore a pink-and-black dress with a halter-and-tank style top, and pink, strappy shoes.

On Twitter, the sleeveless dress was called too casual, with one of the strongest critics being Bess Kalb, an Emmy-nominated Jimmy Kimmel writer who President Trump blocked on Twitter in 2017. 

“As Second Lady, Karen Pence travels the world representing an idea of America more hideous than any Elle-Woods-Goes-To-her-Ex’s-Funeral dress,” she wrote. “Her legacy of broad targeted intolerance of people based on sexuality, gender identity, religion, and racial protest are truly ugly.”













Unlike Melania Trump, Karen has largely managed to avoid style critics. In 2017, though, when she wore a white lace gown to the Indiana Society Ball in Washington, D.C., social media called it a “repurposed wedding dress.”
