President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania are off to Texas to survey the damage caused by Hurricane Harvey. They won’t be visiting Houston, so as to not disrupt the ongoing rescue efforts there, but will visit the surrounding area.
The devastation in Texas has been heartbreaking to witness. But it’s great that President Trump and Melania are heading to the state to show their support for the people.
Just before they set off, however, people noticed something strange.

I fear Melania Trump’s four-inch heels may not last the day. pic.twitter.com/cEngzLn3ck

Some liberals are even criticizing Melania, painting her as an out-of-touch socialite not interested in helping the victims of Hurricane Harvey because she’s wearing heels.
Melanie might want to bring a better pair of walking shoes.

These criticisms are disgusting and thoughtless. What do these guttersnipes expect to happen? For Melania to jump out of Marine One and lead an entire rescue platoon herself?
That’s nonsense. President Trump and Melania are coming to show their support, not physically lift people out of the water.
Melania’s response is classy:
from @FLOTUS comms dir: "It's sad that we have an active and ongoing natural disaster in Texas, and people are worried about her shoes."

Liberals will find anything to complain about – especially when it means putting Trump down a peg.
