CNN Compares Trumps to the Kennedy Camelot

CNN on Friday compared the Trumps to the Kennedys and the Camelot image of the White House in the 1960s.

While showing images of First Lady Melania Trump and former First Lady Jackie Kennedy, the commentators said that Trump's image during the inauguration evoked memories of "Camelot." This was the term used to describe the fashionable and elegant style that Jackie Kennedy tried to bring to the White House during her husband's short presidency.

"Jake, you asked if that looked like Jackie Kennedy, that looks like Jackie Kennedy," Jamie Gangel said in reference to Trump while talking to host Jake Tapper.

"Everything emoded Camelot, that whole era of the Kennedy presidency, and I think she looked amazing," another commentator said.

"Well, I think if you look at the family in total, especially what Ivanka has been posting, the images are very Camelotesque," Vanity Fair‘s Emily Jane Fox said.

"So I think you're starting to see how they're going to build a brand as a first family, and it's a very strong, very American, very Camelotesque brand," Fox continued.
