Melania Trump: Stop Mocking My Disaster Heels

The Hill reports:

First lady Melania Trump’s office on Tuesday morning fired back at reporters who criticized her attire while heading to Texas to visit the areas damaged by Hurricane Harvey, saying it is “sad” that some people are concerned about fashion during a national disaster.

Trump’s communications director in a statement released to CNN ripped reporters for being “worried about her shoes” during an “active and ongoing natural disaster.”

The statement from Trump’s office comes after a score of media reports earlier emerged centering on the first lady’s stiletto-style shoes, which the Mirror called “the most inappropriate clothes imaginable” in a headline. “The First Lady was savaged for donning aviators and a towering pair of stiletto heels as she began the journey today,” the article reads.

The Daily Beast pointed out Melania Trump’s “sky-high stilettos” in a headline, and mocked the first lady by suggesting she had “waterproofed” the shoes before heading off to Houston.
