Being the president is a pretty tough gig, one of the hardest, most stressful, thankless jobs a human being could ever take on. Just look at how most presidents age like an old suitcase after eight years in the driver’s seat of America.
As tough as that is, just imagine how hard it is if you’re married to the man, especially if that man is Donald Trump, the liberal’s most favorite punching bag in the history of politics.
It seems the left is doing anything and everything they can to come up with creative new ways to insult the president and give him a rough go of things, and whereas in times past, children and spouses were for the most part off limits from severe ribbing, that’s not been the case for First Lady Melania Trump.
As much as the liberal media and celebrities have enjoyed smashing on the president any opportunity they get, they seem to relish attempting to destroy our lovely first lady any way they can, even resorting to insulting her choice in shoes.
Just imagine if conservatives would have been so critical of something this silly about Michelle Obama? The outrage would’ve have been nuclear.
The latest example of this comes in light of a photograph of Melania getting on board Air Force One to head off to see the damage flood waters have caused in Texas after Hurricane Harvey wreaked havoc across the state.
FLOTUS was wearing three-inch heels, which, according to the bright minds of the left, was just simply unacceptable and showed just how out of touch with things she really is.
Take a look at some of the reactions for yourself:
And here we have Melania Trump modeling what NOT to wear to a hurricane: 5-inch stilettos.
How out of touch can you be? pic.twitter.com/tZR8o3dYxY

Stiletto. Pumps. In. The. Flood. https://t.co/sLISWRajEC

What these professional reactionaries didn’t seem to think of was that the first lady just might own another pair of shoes, that could possibly be packed aboard the plane with a completely different outfit that would be more suitable to the location they were traversing. I mean, no way, right? Just no way FLOTUS would be that intelligent, says the leftist.
Yet that’s precisely what happened. Mrs. Trump emerged from the plane wearing white sneakers, but that wasn’t what ended up creating what the kids these days might call a “mic drop” moment.
It was the hat she was wearing.
It wasn’t just her shoes, though, that sent a message when Melania stepped off the plane in Texas. Melania wore something we had not seen previously: a FLOTUS hat. FLOTUS stands for ‘First Lady of the United States.’ Melania wore a black hat with white letters across the front. She wore it for the duration of her time on the ground in Corpus Christi.
Now, as was stated before, this isn’t the first time Melania has been the target of vicious and petty liberals who would rather take personal potshots at the president and his family than engage in actual political debate on the issues — all that work to present factual arguments is just too much for the average progressive.
Of all the ridiculous headlines I have read over the course of the past few days, one particular story came completely out of left field. Newsweek published an article attacking First Lady Melania Trump and First Daughter Ivanka Trump over their fashion choices.
According to Nina Burleigh, author of the article—titled Melania and Ivanka Trump Wear High Heels, a Symbol of Everything That is Beautiful and Horrifying About Them—the Trump women have set women back a whole century with their decision to wear high heels.
Burleigh writes, “Historically, the Trumpian women’s shoe choice was invented not for women but aristocratic men, men who would never have to work and who didn’t have to walk much but were carried in litters or carriages.” Burleigh talks like the Trump women look like bums or are walking around flipping every other woman off.
So do all leftists have some sort of strange foot or shoe fetish or something? Why are so many of these people paying attention to this woman’s choice in footwear? It’s odd, weird, and to be honest very, very creepy.
It’s possible to attack someone’s position on an issue while showing them the respect and honor they deserve, but that’s not at all what the left is doing when it comes to Trump or his beautiful bride.
Instead they are being vindictive, angry that their pick for the presidency was so out of touch, corrupt, and untrustworthy that she couldn’t win what should’ve been an easy victory against The Donald, so instead of hoping for the best for our new president and our nation, they take out their frustration through nasty personal attacks.
This is precisely what landed Donald Trump in the White House and if they keep up the petty, juvenile insults, they’re going to get him reelected in 2020, which is supposedly their worst nightmare. Only time will tell if this lesson will sink in.
