Melania Brought Pumps with Her on Texas Trip to See Harvey Devastation – Then Came the Flood of Hate

President Trump is en-route to Texas to visit victims of Hurricane Harvey. The hurricane has devastated large swathes of southern Texas and has displaced hundreds of thousands of families from their homes. The historic flooding has also claimed number of lives.

The president was joined while leaving the White House today by the first lady, Melania Trump. While the First Family is headed to a disaster zone in the middle of a deadly storm there was only one thing on the mind of photographers and reporters as they left the White House: Melania’s stilettos.

Here is what Melania Trump wore to board Marine One, according to the Washington Examiner:

The first lady wore black cropped pants, a green bomber jacket, and black stilettos as she exited the White House for Marine One.

And here is what some journalists and writers had to say about it:

A quick search in Getty Images shows that the photographers on the other side of the lens were also fixated on Melania’s shoes. Look at some of these close-ups from the last hour:

Some wonder if Melania had a change of shoes on Air Force One:

This is certainly not the first time that the first lady has been criticized for her shoe wear. Earlier this month, Newsweek criticized the Trump women for wearing heels and called them “horrifying” for their shoe choices.

According to the article:

Feminists have long grappled with the high-heeled shoe, and whether the stiletto telegraphs power (sexual or otherwise) or self-hobbled weakness. Stiletto pumps are the ultimate test of a certain type of femininity. They signal the taut combination of power and weakness that conservative women must cultivate in order to survive among ideologues who are crafting our tax-free “Handmaid’s Tale” future.

Everything is political.

    I have nothing to say about what Melania wears; she looks great in everything she wears. Better than Michelle Obama; and by the way, the last president wouldn’t have even went to Texas to see the damage. So all of you jealous nitwits can just shut up.

    I have friends who swear their stilettos are comfy…maybe they are use to them but for me…it is not a good choice. If she had proper shoes that she put on later I am sure the media would fail to mention it because that is just who they are. At least she and Donald are trying to do something.

    She was wearing sneakers when I saw her meet with the Governor. Go away media. Stop picking on every little thing about the Trumps.

    Maybe Melania didn’t know what to expect when they visited Texas. Would Justin boots like to give her a pair of boots? Boots have the ability to prepare you for anything.

    She earned them, she can wear them. Agree that they’re not practical for a site visit, but nobody said she would be walking through flooded streets. In fact, AF 1 landed far away from the flooding since all the airports were closed. But you-know-who has got to point something irrelevant out.

    MELANIA SHOES??!!! YOU GOT TO BE KIDDING…THE NEXT HATE POSTINGS ABOUT SHOES:
    Only demon possessed people could come up with all this hate. These people are brainless as brainless chickens. I was raised on a farm with flocks of chickens, if one would get the smallest of cuts to make any blood, the rest would peck it to death. This is how I see when some idiot makes a hate post about the Trumps, it triggers the rest of the peckers. THE ONE THING THESE HATERS ARE FORGETTING GOD PROMISES TO JUDGE YOU ALL THE SAME WAY OF YOUR HATE JUDGING. AND WHEN IT COMES DOWN ON YOU…YOU WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER YOUR WORDS OF HATE OVER AND OVER FOR ETERNITY….I PITY AND FEEL SORRY FOR YOU. YOU HAVE NO UNDERSTANDING OF THE WRATH THAT IS COMING.

    This is totally stupid on the part of these foolish people who, instead of being appreciative of the First Lady being concerned about the victims of this awful storm,they carry on about…….her SHOES????? Really??? Do you wear whatever kind of shoes you choose, and whose business is it? Well our First Lady has the same right..And folks, she’s only going to the plane for the flight down. I am just so amazed at the small-mindedness of some people.

    Awe they are just jealous. I worked downtown Houston for years and wore heels. For people who don’t wear them much they are uncomfortable. However, when your use to wearing them it feels normal/right. I don’t know if she owns a pair of tennis shoes or everyday boots. BUT WHAT DOES IT MATTER?

    I guess the Liberals want her to dress like a construction worker and get down in the mud with the gators. People expect the first lady to be look sophisticated and not look like Rosie O’Donnell at a Tractor Pull. I thought the First Lady looked great in her heels.

      Iagree with you. She’s elegant and classy no matter what she wears. I’m sure she had a change of footwear on the plane.

    I agree. She has already sent prayers to everyone down there. She is with the POTUS to try and console people. Who cares about what kind of shoes she has on. People need to get a life and worry about the thousands of our fellow Americans are going through and not SHOES. GROW IP.

    Nell Moses, You are so right!! How “Out of touch” must one be to focus on shoes instead of the devastation and loss of life in Texas!! How much hate must you have in your heart to focus on trying to discredit the President of the United States and his family? They must be very miserable people.

    Wake up, there is enough hate going on in our country , we don’t need to hate people for the shoes they wear.

    The president goes to Texas to get Texans some help from the flooding and all they are worried about is what the first lady is wearing. Are all Texans this stupid or are they all black?

    I saw her get off of the plane and she had what looked like tennis shoes. Definitely not heels.
