In a political world full of absurd controversies, few are worse than the outrage Melania Trump faced when wearing heels to visit hurricane victims in Texas. The commentary world went into full meltdown mode as Melania left the White House on August 29 wearing heels.
Many since-corrected or deleted articles were written declaring that Melania had worn heels to a flood zone. In fact, we learned the first lady owns more than one pair of shoes and simply changed into a $60 pair of sneakers before exiting Air Force One in Corpus Christi.
Melania returned to Texas on September 2. Just to prove that she is the Master of the Troll Game, she wore heels again.
And once again, she changed into a sensible pair of shoes before serving victims of the hurricane in Houston.
Melania departed the White House again Thursday morning on her way to a disaster zone in Florida. What did she wear? Flats.
The Express describes them thusly:
Melania Trump, 47, co-ordinated with Donald Trump in a black and beige outfit for the journey. She wore a pair of Chanel ballet pumps, costing £560, a rare sighting of the First Lady in flat shoes. Melania had come under fire for wearing high heels when making the journey to Hurricane hit states before. She paired the chic French pumps with a plain black buttoned up coat and beige trousers.
No one really knew what to say:
Hey, busy working. Will someone tweet me when MSM starts covering Melania’s shoes today?
