On Tuesday, everyone threw a collective fit over Melania Trump choosing to wear heels on her way to Texas. Journalists legitimately lost their minds. It didn’t come to their realization that Melania is equipped with these things called hands, which allow her to take existing shoes off and replace them with others.

As predicted, Melania Trump used her hands to switch out her shoes.

She walked off the plane wearing a pair of tennies. Then of course, MSM decided to whine about her FLOTUS hat, but that’s another story.
ANYWAY. Back to Stiletto-Gate. Vogue– being all about fashion– was all over this. Contributing editor Lynn Yaeger wrote an op-ed all about how Melania’s move was a mega fail. Here’s the bulk of it:
This morning, Mrs. Trump boarded Air Force One wearing a pair of towering pointy-toed snakeskin heels better suited to a shopping afternoon on Madison Avenue or a girls’ luncheon at La Grenouille.
While the nation is riveted by images of thousands of Texans wading with their possessions, their pets, their kids, in chest-high water, desperately seeking refuge; while a government official recommend that those who insist on sheltering in place write their names and social security numbers on their arms, Melania Trump is heading to visit them in footwear that is a challenge to walk in on dry land.
A spokesperson says she has other shoes to change into on the plane—and one sincerely hopes there is a pair of leopard-print Wellies-in-waiting to get her from the tarmac to the limo. But what kind of message does a fly-in visit from a First Lady in sky-high stilettos send to those suffering the enormous hardship, the devastation of this natural disaster?
And why, oh why, can’t this administration get anything, even a pair of shoes, right?
Deep. Insightful, really.
Unmoved? Same. Like we mentioned before, Melania switched into sneaks and a cute hat. You can hate all you want, but stilettos are Melania’s traveling shoes. Even on her casual days, she’s wearing heels. That isn’t some elitist thing. That’s just who she is. And despite that, SHE STILL SWITCHED INTO SNEAKERS MORONS.
All that being said, I’d like to introduce you to the Vogue writer who decided to pile on and criticize Melania’s fashion choices.
I mean, hello FASHION.
Here is a side-by-side, for research purposes of course.
