Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Twitchy.com: “Vox dedicates an entire article to the 'style and authority' emanating from impeachment hearing witness George Kent's bow tie”. Below is an excerpt from the article.
George Kent, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, testified at today’s impeachment hearing. But what he said is far less important than what he was wearing. As Twitchy told you earlier, CNN’s Chris Cillizza was quite taken with Kent’s wardrobe. He tweeted about it several times.
The ensemble gives Kent a benign appearance when juxtaposed with Ambassador William Taylor, the second witness, who chose to wear a black suit with a dark green tie — typical Washington attire. The public hearings are a historic moment for the participants and the country, as this is the fourth-ever impeachment inquiry into a US president.
As Kent launched into his opening statement, he drew comparisons to a diplomatic Mr. Rogers (or a sterner Bill Nye?). Kent’s dapper outfit will likely set him apart from future testifying witnesses, who will make appearances on Friday and later next week — and says a lot about who he is, and what he brings to the inquiry.
Kent was brought on to speak about his expertise on Ukraine, and how the public reacts to his testimony will be, in part, influenced by how he chooses to present himself. Regardless of how his fashion choice was publicly received, Kent was probably aware that this public testimony is his moment in history.
The bow tie brought style and authority to George Kent’s testimony. https://t.co/f2BVXP4NL0
